Join the world's fastest growing online poker room PokerKing. With a new player deposit bonus, exclusive tournaments, and the industry's best loyalty program.

  • In the poker industry loyalty systems are built to reward and support professional poker players. These are players that play on many tables simultaneously. Many of them are playing long hours and prey on recreational players. However, recreational players make up the vast majority of players online.


    Like anybody else professionals have the right to play online, and they have success with it. But we don’t plan to reward them for their success. Unfortunately, recreational players are often neglected by loyalty programs that reward professional players. At PokerKing we would rather focus our rewards on the players who show true loyalty to our site.

  • There are two different types of points:

    • Status Points
    • Royalty Points

    Status Points
    Your Royal Club Crown level is decided by the number of Status Points you acquire. These points are then multiplied by a factor assigned to each Royal Club level. For example, if you earn 100 Status Points and you are a member of the Royal Crown level your Status Points will be multiplied by 4 and you will earn 400 Royalty Points. In order to maintain your level you need to earn at least half of the points you needed to achieve that level each month. For example, the Royal Crown level costs 20,000 Status Points to achieve but only 10,000 to maintain.

    Please see the chart above for details.

    Your Status Points are reset on the first of each calendar month. The Status Points are used as a constant counter of your play and cannot be redeemed or transferred.

    During the first month you earned 2,000 Status Points and you got Silver Crown membership.
    If you earn less than 1,000 Status Points, you will be dropped to Bronze Crown at the beggining of the next month.
    If you earn 5,000 Status Points you will receive Gold Crown membership etc.

    Royalty Points
    Your Status Points earn you spending points called Royalty Points. Royalty Points may be used to purchase products in the Royal Store or as the buy-in to selected tournaments and events.
    Please note: Royalty Points only expire if you do not earn any Royalty Points within one full calendar year.
    For instance, if you earn any Royalty Points in the year 2010, your Royalty Points will not expire that year. However, if you earn no Royalty Points in the 2011 calendar year, your Royalty Points will expire on December 31, 2011.

    For every Status Point you earn, you also earn Royalty Points based on your Royal Club level.

  • Our Royal Club program has been designed to share most of the points with recreational players. At PokerKing we aim to fill a gap missing in the poker industry today: taking care of recreational players on a regular basis. It shouldn’t matter if you play one table at a time instead of ten.

    The criteria to move to the next level are much lower than any other online poker room. And when you reach the next level the following calendar month you need only half of the required points to maintain that level. Even better, if you do not maintain that level in the following month, we give you an additional 30 days grace period to ensure that you keep your achieved Crown level.

    We are sure that you will be pleased with the results.

  • You earn points by playing in PokerKing games which have a rake or fee.

    In PokerKing tournaments, you earn points based on the entry fee. You receive Status Points at the rate of 6 Status Points for each $1.00 USD paid as a fee.

    Fractional Status Points will be awarded in hundredths.

    For example:
    Playing in a $5 buy-in tournament with a $0.50 entry fee will earn you 3 Status Points.

    Please note: “Play Money” and “Freeroll” tournaments do not charge a cash fee, so you do not earn Status Points from them.


    You will receive 6.6 Status points for every $1 you paid in rake. The part of the rake that feeds the rake race jackpot is not accumulating you Status points. Status Points are awarded based on the same formula to each player. However, as you progress to higher Royal Club levels your points are converted into Royalty Points (spending points) at higher multiples. As an example, 100 Status Points at the Bronze Crown level will earn you 100 Royalty Points while at the Royal Crown level your 100 points would earn you 400 Royalty Points. All Royalty Points are redeemable for cash in our Rewards store at any time.

    “Play Money” and “Freeroll” tournaments do not charge a cash fee, so you do not earn Status Points from them.
  • The higher your Royal Club level, the more Royalty Points you will earn for each hand played at a real money table or for taking part in tournaments with an entry fee.

    The table below shows how you can reach higher Royal Club levels and how many Royalty Points you can earn at each level.

    Royal Club Levels List

    Royal Club Level Status Points Status Points required to maintain level Royalty Points earning factor Sample based on 1000 Status Points earned
    1 1 1X 1,000
    2,000 1,000 1.5X 1,500
    5,000 2,500 2.0X 2,000
    10,000 5,000 3.0X 3,000
    20,000 10,000 4.0X 4,000

    EXAMPLE 1:
    A Bronze Crown member plays in a qualified raked hand. He earns 1 Status Point and at the same time he also earns 1 Royalty Point. A Gold Crown member plays the same hand and earns 1 Status Point, but earns 2 Royalty Points (not 1) for playing this hand.

    EXAMPLE 2:
    A Platinum Crown member plays in a raked cash game hand for which 2 Status Points are awarded. He earns 3 Royalty Points for each Status Point, so he would receive 6 Royalty Points for playing this hand
