not sure if this is the right subforum, so mods please move the thread if necessary..
anyway, all sites offer deposit bonuses. what are the rules regarding withdrawing your bonus, i mean, can u just release the bonus and then withdraw all your money? that doesn't sound too possible...

Hallo!

It depends to the room you want to have the bonus. For example: On Stars you have a first deposit bonus. If you release the whole bonus of $600 you can withdraw the next day and play for the bonus. Every 170VPP you will get $10.

But i cannot say how it works on every other room.

Hi lidibogovic,

With pretty much every deposit bonus I've ever used this is the case. Once you unlock the funds they are 100% yours and would find it pretty unusual if there were other limitations before you can withdraw (other than supplying Identification).

When you clear a deposit bonus the sites make sure they cover in rake what they would be paying you through your bonus should you get through it. Each bonus (at least on this site) has all terms clearly stated and if it has some random clause one of our users would of flagged this in the appropriate forum.

Any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Best wishes,

Danny.

here is my idea....don't laugh grin
i am playing on poker770 with 50$ i got from pokerstrategy, climbed up to ~750$, so suppose i get up to 2000$ in couple of months, i decide to withdraw it, and than deposit it back to be eligible for the bonus. i release the whole bonus amount, and say along the way i hit sets and boats all the time, end eventually bring my br to 5000$ (initial 2000$, 2000$ bonus and 1000$ earned along the way). can i withdraw my 5000$ then? smile

Hallo!

If you make $750 from your $50 from Pokerstrategy, you cannot withdraw before you release the bonus.

You have to deposit another $750 to the $750 from your startingkapital and after that you can withdraw $750 or also more.

After clearing the bonus, you can withdraw everything if you want.

Sorry, you want to climb up to $2000. Than you want to withdraw? But in my opinion you have first to deposit to be eligible for the bonus. I will look it up again.

I believe what he means is, in order to activate the FDB, you'd need to deposit $1000 (it's 200% up to $2000, so 1k deposit does it as far as I know.)

Once enough rake is generated to release the full $2000, they're 100% yours to do with as you wish.

Hopefully...

Regards,
Richard

Free $50 Bonus Details

- Release: To withdraw the $50 you need to have earned at least $50 in rake + tournament fees
- Deposits: players are allowed to deposit before and after the $50 have been paid

First Deposit Bonus Details
- Availability: the first deposit bonus is still available after the $50 have been paid
- Amount: 200% up to $2.000
Bonus will clear at $5 per 350 770-points ($5 chunks for 350 points earned). This is a faster redemption rate than other 770 players (which get $2 for 150)
The bonus status will be visible in the software.

- time to activate AFTER registration: it is activated straight away - unlimited time to do the deposit
- time to clear bonus AFTER deposit: 45 days

No additional bonus code is needed for this.
- Minimum deposit: 10$ by prepaid card, 20$ by other methods
Winnings and deposits above $50
- No restriction here - all winnings can be claimed.
The technical restriction on playtech applies that a player has to do a minimum deposit in order to make withdrawing possible.
The player must confirm identity and utility bill, must not have duplicate account, and withdrawal through the same method and same account used to deposit beside bank withdrawal if deposited with credit card.


in summary, something like the scenario you described is perfectly possible. smile build $50 --> $1,000 and withdraw, deposit $1000 (and get 200% bonus so $2,000) clear your bonus, withdraw everything.
the only flaw is, before you make your first withdrawal, you need to have made a deposit which the room usually requires in order to verify that the ewallet/credit card is yours. so THAT deposit will be your first deposit. unless you do it via bankwire/check or some other method which does not require a deposit to verify. you will need to check with their support regarding this matter though.

hope that helped.

smiles,
wendy

Thanks Wendy.

That's how it is. For most payment methods you need to make a deposit first in order to do the cashout. And this would already count then for the first deposit.

If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Best regards
Hannes
