PokerStars has more than one bonus code. We recommend STARS600 but FREE20 is another option for players with smaller bankrolls.
Both bonus codes include tickets for 100k Privilege Freerolls.
STARS600 is the main bonus code and it gives players a 100% deposit bonus up to $600. The full value of the bonus does not have to be claimed with the first deposit. In fact, players have up to 60 days to make three qualifying deposits.
You first step is to register your new account.
During the registration process, you will be prompted to Choose Source. Here you should select Marketing Code as the source. Then type in the Marketing Code “ith.com” as shown below:
Then, visit the cashier to make your first deposit. In the cashier, you must enter the PokerStars bonus code when making your first deposit. You have the choice of inputting FREE20 or STARS600 depending on you preference of bonuses.
FREE20 is a less confusing bonus code. Simply make a real money deposit of $20 or more using bonus code FREE20 and a free $20 is credited to your account in less than 36 hours. Click here to read more about the PokerStars bonus code FREE20.

PokerStars Welcome Bonuses
Having filled out the account registration, PokerStars will give you a list of depositing options to choose from that are geared towards your geographic location.
The PokerStars has two welcome bonuses to choose from. The first option is a 100% deposit bonus for up to $600 – in which case you must earn points to receive your bonus, which is paid out in $10 increments. In order to receive this PokerStars deposit bonus, you need to enter the PokerStars bonus code STARS600 into the “Bonus Code” box above the Submit and Cancel buttons.
Alternatively, you can enter the value FREE20, in which case if you deposit $20 or more, you will immediately get credited the extra $20 free within 36 hours – without having to earn poker points first!
Your deposit bonus will be added to your cashiering screen and you can track your progress from within that screen.
It is important to note that there is no PokerStars rakeback available, so taking advantage of their bonuses, reloads and VIP Program are the best ways to enhance your earning potential at PokerStars.
VIP Player Points (VPPs) are the key to unlocking the STARS600 bonus. In most games players get 5.5 VPPs for every $1 in rake. One thing cool about PokerStars is that they also give players 5.5 VPPs for every $1 in tournament fees – some online poker sites do not count tournament fees for points.
When 200 VPPs are accumulated then increments of $10 of the 100% up to $600 bonus are released. Players have 4 months to clear the bonus. The bonus is available in multiple currencies as follows:
USD ($), Max: $600, Clearance Rate: 200 VPPs per $10
EUR (€), Max: €500, Clearance Rate: 250 VPPs per €10
GBP (£), Max: £400, Clearance Rate: 300 VPPs per £10
CAD ($), Max: $600, Clearance Rate: 200 VPPs per $10
