You earned 500 VPPs and achieved SilverStar status in July. As a special thank you, you were credited with one entry ticket. You then earn 2,500 VPPs in August and achieve GoldStar. This earns you two more entries (as shown in the table above). You then go on to win a VIP Trivia freeroll. This awards you another ticket, which means you now have four chances to win.
