Edinburgh, United Kingdom, November 01, 2014 --( Christmas is coming early for PokerVIP players, with the world-renowned affiliate site giving away a huge $210,000 in prizes during its Winter Miracle promotion.

The promotion is the largest ever rake race launched by an online poker affiliate during the winter months, and comes off the back of the tens of thousands of dollars given away each month since PokerVIP relaunched in August.

As with previous PokerVIP rake races, the top 250 players will be rewarded for their play across a number of qualifying online poker sites, giving themselves the chance to earn a Christmas bonus. Players can climb the monthly leaderboard by accumulating VIP points for each dollar they rake at any of 15 PokerVIP-approved online poker rooms.

The promotion will award a potential top prize of up to $22,000 for the overall winner, as well as all the high-end bonuses, rakeback and promotions to which PokerVIP members will already be accustomed.
