      I want to know how (in what method) they offer their rakeback. For example:
      - PokerStars have a VIP shop
      - FTP had a weekly rakeback plus a shop.


      The reason is that I plan to use their first deposit bonus to the fullest and than leave the site. When I leave the site I want as much as rakeback as possible and not have certain ammount of points in a VIP shop or whatever.

      Hi ragney,

      Thank you for your post, we are happy to hear you're thinking to make a deposit and will be happy to help you out regarding your questions.

      Pleno's explanation regarding what you should look at next to rakeback in each poker room can be found here.

      $100 Bonus

      Important: You have to deposit within 10 days after creating your account to benefit from the first deposit bonus. You will need to play a raked hand within 90 days of creating your account on bwin. Otherwise, your account will not be tracked to PokerStrategy.com and you won't be able to collect StrategyPoints.

      As soon as you've made your first deposit, we advise you to opt-in for b'inside - the VIP program - by clicking on the b'inside link on the top right-hand corner of the bwin website.

      When you make a first deposit you get a 100% bonus. This means that a $200 first deposit gives you a $200 bonus! The maximum bonus amount is $1000, for first deposits of $1000 or greater.

      Clearing the bonus: After making your deposit, you can begin using your bonus on bwin. The bonus will be paid in payouts of 10%. For example, if you deposited $200, you get your $200 bonus in payouts of $20.

      In general, poker players get 3.25pp for each $1 contributed rake in cash games and 5pp in tournaments.

      You have 60 days in which to clear the bonus. If you haven't cleared your bonus in that time it will expire, however, any amount that you do clear is yours to keep.

      Exactly how many points you have left to clear your bonus can be seen under »Poker» My Account.


      Anything else we can help you with please don't hesitate to contact us again.

      Are you sure about this info? I think you actually have 90 days to clear the bonus and you get it in one chunk when you reach the required poker points.
