VIP Program

888’s program is one of the best VIP programs in New Jersey. Everyone starts off at 5% cash-back, 15% is achievable for many players and the top level provides 35% cash-back.

How it works: At 888, as you play poker and casino games you earn Status Points. In poker, you earn 2 SPs for every dollar attributed in rake. Status Points, as the name would suggest, track your progress through VIP Status Tiers.

You also earn Rewards Points, and the higher your status, the quicker you accumulate them. Rewards Points can be converted instantly into real dollars at a rate of 1RP=1c, but redemption of Reward Points for cash must be done in 100-point units.
