Annual VIP Statuses

Once beyond the monthly VIP statuses, Winamax Poker has a special status reserved for our best and most loyal players. Our annual VIP statuses are calculated on a sliding 12 month basis.

 

  • DIAMOND I (carat): from 50,000 to 99,999 miles per year (3x multiplier x3). Takes into account the 12 previous months of player history.
  • DIAMOND II (carats): from 100,000 to 249,999 miles per year (3.5x multiplier). Takes into account the 12 previous months of player history.
  • DIAMOND III (carats): from 250,000 to 499,999 miles per year (4x multiplier). Takes into account the 12 previous months of player history.
  • DIAMOND IV (carats): from 500,000 to 999,999 miles per year (4.5x multiplier). Takes into account the 12 previous months of player history.
  • DIAMOND V (carats): from 1,000,000 to 2,499,999 miles per year (5x multiplier). Takes into account the 12 previous months of player history.
  • RED DIAMOND: 2,500,000 miles per year and up (6x multiplier). Takes into account the 12 previous months of player history.


Players generate points by playing on the Winamax real-money poker tables. Points are multiplied by the player’s VIP status multiplier to determine the number of MILES earned.
 

Miles earned may be traded for additional goods and services at any moment in the Winamax Poker Boutique.
 

A player’s VIP status (shown as a metal chip) is calculated on a monthly basis. A counter is set to zero at the first of each month (00:00 CET). Players must earn a minimum number of miles each month in order to keep or improve his or her current VIP status.
 

A VIP status can only increase over the course of a month: as soon as a player has reached a certain status, he or she will keep the status earned during the current month until the END OF THE FOLLOWING MONTH. This system allows players to benefit from freerolls and special promotions, and to continue to earn miles according to a more advantageous multiplier.
 

A player can earn one of the annual VIP DIAMOND statuses if he or she earns a minimum of 50,000 miles over the course of the previous 12 months. An annual status is only valid for a single month. At the end of each month, the status is recalculated according to the previous 12 month, therefore taking into account the month just ending.
 

Three examples:

  • Example 1: if you create your real-money account on the 3rd of April

    Your will begin the month with zero miles and you will not have a Winamax VIP status. As soon as you earn 20 miles, even if the month has not yet ended, you will immediately be assigned the CHROME VIP status. Once you have reached 250 miles, you will gain the BRONZE VIP status, including all of the advantages associated with it: an entry ticket to the FREEROLL Bronze (i.e. in May of this example) and the multiplier of 1.25 for each point earned.

    You will keep your BRONZE status until the 31st of May with the possibility of climbing to a higher status over this period. Note, the miles accumulated in April will not count toward the miles required for the month May. However, all of the miles that you have earned can be used in the Winamax Poker Boutique.

  • Example 2: you have earned 3,500 miles between the 1st and 30th of April

    Good job! You have reached GOLD status. You will now have the right to participate in the freeroll reserved for Gold players in May. Also your multiplier will be x2 for all the points you earn in May. You will have to earn 3,000 miles during the month of May in order to keep your GOLD status in June. Or you will have to earn 6,000 miles in order to reach the PLATINUM status.

     

  • Example 3: On the 30th of June 2012, you have a PLATINUM VIP status...

    ...and the total miles you have earned since July 2012 is 53,000 miles. You have therefore earned the DIAMOND 1 status and all of the benefits coming with it. However, keep in mind that this status will be recalculated after the 31st of July 2012. In order to keep your status, you will therefore have to have accumulated at least 50,000 miles from August 2011 through July 2012. As mentioned above, we recalculate annual VIP statuses on a rolling 12 month basis.

     

Monthly FREEROLLS

Each month, Winamax organizes freeroll tournaments that are reserved for the members of the different VIP statuses:
 

  • Freeroll Chrome: €1,000 guaranteed every 2nd Tuesday and Thursday of each month beginning at 20:00 CET. Each Chrome player may participate in only one of the two monthly freerolls.
  • Freeroll Aluminium: €2,000 guaranteed every 2nd Monday and Wednesday of each month beginning at 20:00 CET. Each Aluminium player may participate in only one of the two monthly freerolls.
  • Freeroll Bronze: €3,000 guaranteed every 2nd Monday and Wednesday of each month beginning at 20:45 CET. Each Bronze player may participate in only one of the two monthly freerolls.
  • Freeroll Silver: €10,000 guaranteed every 2nd Tuesday of each month beginning at 20:45 CET.
  • Freeroll Gold-Platinum: €13,000 guaranteed every 2nd Sunday of each month beginning at 21:00 CET.
  • Freeroll Diamond: €15,000 guaranteed every second Sunday of each month beginning at 21:00 CET.

The Freeroll for which you have earned an entry ticket will be indicated by a green icon within the Winamax tournament lobby.

You may consult your current status here.

You can exchange your miles for various bonuses and items in our Boutique.

How miles are calculated

1. Poker

Miles are determined by calculating points in function of the rake (commission taken by Winamax on all poker games) generated by an individual player in real-money games.
 

Tournaments (Sit & Go and Multi-Table Tournaments)

Players will generate 4 miles per euro of rake.

For example if the tournament buy-in is €20 euros (€18 for the prizepool and €2 euros in commission), the player will have earned 8 points.

In tournaments: Miles are credited at the beginning of the tournament (or at the time of registration when making a late registration)

 

Cash Games

Players will generate 3 miles per euro of rake.

For Example: a table of 4 players with a pot of €20, of which €1.15 is paid in rake (see following section on rakes):

  • If player A contributed €9 (or 45%) to the pot, he will have contributed €0.5175 to the rake and will have therefore generated 1.55 points. Assuming that the player has a multiplier of 1, he or she will have earned 1.55 miles.
  • Player B also contributed €9 to the pot, generating 1.55 points. If player B has a multiplier of 1.5 (due to his or her Silver VIP status) a total of 2.33 miles will be attributed to the player.
  • Player C invested €2 in thee pot, adding only €0.115 to the rake. He therefore generated 0.35 points and 0.35 miles.

In cash games: Miles are credited once the player leaves the tabletournaments: Miles are credited at the beginning of the tournament (or at the time of registration when making a late registration)

2. Sports Betting

When a bet is placed, the Miles are calculated according to the amount wagered and the odds of the bet. For each Euro wagered, players earn: 0.4 x (1 – 1 / odds).

In the case of a Cashout, the odds displayed above in the formula correspond to winnings/losses. If the winnings are inferior to the wager, no Miles will be credited.

Like in poker, Miles are multiplied by your VIP status coefficient. Miles are credited once the bet is finished. If a bet is cancelled, no Miles are credited. Should a draw occur in a “Winner (refund if draw)”, the bet is considered as cancelled and no Miles are therefore credited. Free bets do not earn Miles.

Example: In the match Brazil vs Croatia, player A bets €20 on a draw with odds of 4.50. At the end of the match, he receives: €20 x 0.4 (1 – 1 / 4.5) = 6.22 Miles. If player A holds VIP Gold status (x2 multiplier), he receives 6.22 x 2 = 12.44 Miles.

For the “Pools”, Miles are calculated as follows: for each €1 wagered, players earn 0.4 Miles.

Like in poker, Miles are multiplied by your VIP status coefficient.

Miles are credited once the results of the Pool are published. If the Pool is cancelled, no Miles are credited.

Example: player A wagers €24 on a Pool (3 doubles and 1 triple). When the final match in the Pool ends, he receives: €24 x 0.4 = 9.6 Miles. If player A is VIP Platinum (x2.5 multiplier), he receives 9.6 x 2.5 = 24 Miles.

 

Poker Rake

Tournaments: Rake is always indicated in the buy-in amount of the tournament window. For example a €20 tournament will have €18 added to the prizepool and €2 of rake (€18 + €2).
 

Cash Games: Winamax lives by the No Flop, No Drop rule, meaning that we do not collect a commission (rake) on the cash game tables before the flop. All cash game tables have a post flop rake of 5.75% (10% in Go Fast). However the total amount of rake collected in a single hand is capped according to the table’s stakes and number of players at the table:
