PokerStars Announces Pricing Changes as of March 26 | PokerNews

PokerStars announced on its blog two changes to its fee structure in many of its multi-table tournaments (MTTs) as of March 26.

The changes will effect lower-stakes and recreational players and not impact higher-stakes players. Starting on Monday, rake on all MTTs with a buy-in of less than $20 will increase while rake will decrease for all Time Tourneys regardless of the buy-in.

The exact pricing changes have not yet been disclosed, however, the short blog post mentions that players can always find the exact rake of an event within the lobby of the tournament.

Director of Poker Innovation and Operations for PokerStars Severin Rasset, cited several factors for the change, while also suggesting similar pricing and other changes will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.

“Pricing is a key commercial consideration for every business and we will increasingly use a dynamic pricing model that gives the greatest flexibility to respond to market dynamics,” said Rasset. “Therefore, we will be reviewing and adjusting our pricing, bonusing and promotions, and our Stars Rewards program on an ongoing basis. The changes we make to our pricing are based upon various factors including customer behavior, commercial and promotional considerations, and the overall long-term sustainable health of the ecosystem.”
