100% up to $555 when using PokerBonuses exclusive bonus code PB555.
The bonuses clear at a 8x PP rate, so players must earn 8 Player Points for each $1 of bonus.
Bonus clears in one lump sum so consider this when making your first deposit.
Player Points are awarded in the following manner:
When you play real money cash games, player points are awarded based on the rake (fee) that you contribute to each pot. You are awarded with 3,6 player points for every dollar you contribute in rake. If you for example contribute 0.6 dollar in rake you will receive 2,16 player points ($0,6 x 3,6 = 2,16) if you contribute 2 dollar in rake you will receive 7,2 points ($2 X 3,6 = 7,2).
If you are choosing to clear the bonus through single and multi-table tournaments:
3,6 Player Points are awarded for every paid dollar in entry fee (real money tournaments). For example, if you enter a $20+2 tournament, you will be awarded 5 * $2 = 7,2 points, if you enter a $5+$0.50 tournament, you will be awarded 3,6 X $0.50= 1,8 points. The points are awarded when the tournament finishes. Players playing for valueback will receive valueback of 6%-40% of tournament fees depending on VIP status.
Percentage of tournament rake refunded when clearing the bonus:
Betsson Poker offers a VIP Club program where players can receive 6%-40% valueback depending on the number of Player Points and rake that has been accumulated.
