Status Points are collected at the following rates: 1 SP for each €0.01 rake generated in cash games and 1.5 SP for each €0.01 rake paid in tournaments (SNGs and MTTs). SP determine the VIP level you reach.

The only way of maintaining a VIP level is by constantly playing real money games, because reaching a specific level doesn't mean you won't be demoted to a lower one. You have to maintain constant the earned Status Points average, which translates into generating constant rake volumes. Technically, the levels are maintained when at least one of the 3 moving averages returns that specific level value.
A moving average is a succession of averages derived from successive segments of a series of values. Lottomatica uses the 7 - 30 - 100 days moving averages. You will be automatically assigned the most profitable level based on the comparison between the level reached by each moving average.
