The Best Poker Bonuses
Poker rooms propose different kinds of bonuses: no-deposit, fixed, percentage and monthly. They have two major type of wagering requirements: players must either
wager certain amount of money or bet number of raked hands (they can be combined and wager is calculated via poker points system). Player cannot withdraw money before wagering requirements
are met. Bonuses are typically for your first purchase at a poker-room, though very often rooms will send their members a promotional e-mail offering this type of promotion for special
occasions. Many rooms also give money to those who will attract another player into the room (refer-a-friend bonus).
A no-deposit (freebie) bonus is free, meaning that the poker room requires absolutely no deposit to receive the bonus. They will simply place some free chips
into your new poker account after you open it! It's nice bonus, but quite rare, right now only several B2B
and Prima Network rooms offer this bonus, including Crazy Vegas Poker ($10).
The fixed-rate (match) bonus is when the poker-room will give you a certain amount in free chips for a certain amount of opening deposit. The current amounts are
as little as a $20.00 bonus for a $20.00 deposit, and as high as a $1000 bonus for a $1000 deposit!
A percentage bonus is exactly what it sounds like. You make a deposit at a poker room and they will give you bonus chips based on the amount of that deposit
(usually 20-30% up to $100). Right now it's the most popular bonus type at poker-rooms.
The monthly bonus is usually pay per play bonus, which casino provides on regular (monthly) basis. Monthly bonus is usually paid for limited period of
play or certain number of raked hands played.
