MELROSE PARK, IL -- Stern Pinball Inc., in cooperation with the International Flipper Pinball Association, says it's offering the first player rewards program in pinball history. It will reward dedicated players by giving the opportunity to use their rewards to purchase new SPI premium games at IFPA prices, Stern said.
Officials said the promotion, known as the $tern Rewards Program, will leverage the IFPA's World Pinball Player Rankings system to enable players to qualify for the program. For the 2012 calendar, players who qualify will have the opportunity to redeem their rewards until Aug. 15, 2013.
Each month, the player who has earned the most World Pinball Player Ranking points in the previous 30 days will be designated as the IFPA "Player of the Month" and qualify for the rewards program. In addition, the three players who move up the most in the rankings each month will qualify for the rewards program. Finally, at the end of 2012, the top 250 ranked players will qualify for the rewards program.
