      Hi guys

      I'm going to make my first deposit on 888.
      I know there is a first deposit bonus. Do I need to do something to get this bonus?
      It's the first time I deposit somewhere.
      I first downloaded and installed the software directly from there website. Then I downloaded it from Pokerstrategy.com

      It said use this link, so I did but maybe a bit to late? Can I still receive the FDP?

      Regards

      as long as u didn't create an account through the UNLINKED PokerStrategy Referral URL then u are safe. If you did then you wont be receiving any PS points. You are entitled to a FDP, regardless being linked to PS or NOT that's the Sites Bonus offer, PS is just advertizing it.

      Big thanks Heave112!!
      I did register via the PS link. I received PS points as well with the $8 free I got on 888.
      But thanks for answering!

      Hey guys

      Got an other question.

      I made my first deposit (and got $10 extra which 888 gave me). I got my first deposit bonus and have to clear it in 3 months they said.

      Now 3 months doesn't really look like a lot of time to clear 100% of the bonus.
      Is it possible to clear the whole bonus in 3 months?
      I deposited $82 do currently playing NL2, doesn't really matter I know but just to let u know.

      Regards

      Don't chase bonus, but play your A game imo. If you force it, you might loose entire roll.

      +1

      Play your normal volume, play your A game. Chasing bonuses can lead to disasters :(

      Wish you every luck at 888 :)

      I'm not going to rush it don't worry about that. I was just wondering.

      But if I look at your reaction it looks like it's not easy/not possible to make it to the full 100%

      It's a bit weird though playing on 888. It's SOOO soft. It's a bit adjusting coming from party.

      Which limits are you playing? Perhaps we will cross paths :P

      If you think 888 is soft, you should move onto the Cam tables, even better ;)

      Say WHAT?? I just played on one of those tables. I played the NL4 one, my BR isn't big enough to play higher. So I sat down with $4 and got off the table with $20 in only 350 hands or so.
      Made a total profit of $30 today!
