      Hey onepark,

      Is it your first deposit on 888poker?

      For the first deposit bonus you do not need to type in any bonus code. Please see the bottom of this page as well:

      I've depozited 10$. Reached 79$ and guess what?? I still didn't clear my depozit bonus. Only halfway through. 888poker has one of the worst bonus programs I know about. It's ok to play there, cause ther are a lot of weak players (even weaker than me) but clearing up the bonus is a nightmare.

      So unless you are not a micro player stay away from 888 bonus.

      A bit of math for you:
      I've gathered 80strategy points. For every 1$ of rake I get 4 strat. points. so I've generated 20$ of rake.
      In my bonus account I have 0.50$. So if we calculate that a player actually gets 2.5% rakeback.

      So is that a great deal or what???

      (the other site where I'm a regular I get 27% rakeback, so in this case my RB would be 5.4$)

      CONCLUSION:
      + lot of weak players (if I'm winning that must be true),
      - opening a bonus sucks.

      cheers,

      @onepark: No bonus code is required.

      @bbosstjan: You need to collect 100 bonus points for every 10 dollar of the bonus. $1 in rake= 2 points. So you need to generate $50 in rake in order to release each $10 bonus. Thats 20% rakeback.

      Best regards,
      Hannes

      I guess your calculation is right. I've checked my Rewards section and I've made 60 points and need 40 more to clear that 10$. however after the bonus is cleared what is the RB? While I'm clearing the bonus I guess there is no rakeback? In my revards point value is stated that 60 points are worth 0.60$.

      So to avoid confusion here's screenshot:

      888poker doesn't offer direct rakeback. You earn points, which you can exchange to cash.

      As you can see one reward points has the value of $0.01. 888poker has different levels. From Blue to VIP Diamond. You get up to 18 reward points for one status points. So you get between 2% and 36% rakeback using your points.

      Best regards,
      Hannes
