It was something of a star-studded affair in Nottingham last Thursday, January 31st, as a host of partypoker’s most loyal VIPs were invited to join staff at a behind-closed-doors event at the home of UK poker, Dusk Till Dawn Casino to learn of the exciting new “Diamond Club Elite” VIP program.
Eight players made the trek from across the UK and Europe to enjoy canapés and champagne on arrival while hearing managing director, Tom Waters explain the loyalty scheme and extol its many benefits, before opening the floor to questions.
Among the esteemed crowd were Team partypoker’s own Betrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Patrick Leonard and Ludovic Geilich, who all then proceeded to listen intently as Rob Yong discussed his vision for the site and responded to a plethora of questions on issues ranging from site liquidity to game security and integrity.
To recap, the VIP program is designed to reward partypoker’s most loyal players with up to 60% cashback, a $16,000 VIP package to the Caribbean Poker Party and a seat in MILLIONS Online worth $10,300, plus milestone cash bonuses.
The criteria is simple enough: rake $200,000 over a twelve-month period from 1 February 2019 to unlock all the above goodies, in addition to exclusive VIP service at partypoker LIVE events, 24/7 support lines and the honour of calling yourself a fully-fledged Diamond Club Elite member.
To celebrate the launch, the first two players to earn the full $200,000 in rake across either cash games or SPINS will both be entitled to 100% cashback, fixed up until 31 January 2020. Quite the package!
partypoker MD, Waters believes the program marks out partypoker as the “number one choice for VIP players in the online poker industry.”
Back to the day’s events.
After the formalities were over, VIPs joined staff, Waters and the Team partypoker trio in tow in a £5,000 freeroll hosted at the casino, with selected £500 bounties placed on Waters, Leonard and Geilich.
Several all-ins plus beers/champagnes later, the UK’s Ben Raven was left standing as the inaugural “Diamond Club Elite Invitational Champion” after defeating partypoker staff member, Rehman Kassam heads-up, before all parties reconvened in town to round off the day’s activities with a 4* restaurant meal.
It’s fair to say all invited players immensely enjoyed their time in Nottingham and expressed great enthusiasm at the prospect of Diamond Club Elite.
The initial response has proved incredibly promising: partypoker’s VIP team has received twice the expected sign-ups to date, while a pair of hopefuls are already well on their way to Diamond Club Elite status having raked $30,000 between them in a matter of days!
