Interest Bearing Poker Account at Absolute Poker
The Absolute poker site features three levels of VIP status: VIP. Platinum VIP and Elite VIP. As usual, you advance through them by generating rake and accumulating VIP points. Briefly summarized, every four dollars in rake give you one VIP point.
Enter a really fine club
When you hit a total of 40,000 VIP points, you'll enter the select community of Elite VIP players and receive a number of rewards:
- Monthly $50 entry to poker tourney of your choice
- 3 times as many Absolute Reward Points as a regular member (used for merchandise, buy-ins, etc.)
- Personal host handling your poker account
Interest bearing poker account
In addition, your poker bankroll will sit on an interest bearing account, something that many poker players have been asking for. At an annual interest rate of 9%, the Elite VIP poker account certainly beats most regular bank accounts.
The interest is computed and paid out on a monthly basis. To qualify for the interest payout for a certain month, you must remain an Elite VIP member for the duration of the month, meaning you must gather enough VIP points to stay in the club (10,000).
If you want to receive the interest, you're also not allowed to withdraw any funds during that month. A restriction that might bug professional or semi-professional players who depend on their winnings for rent, food and child support - and the necessities of life too.
