      The redemption of your bonus is split into 4 tiers. Each tier has a different VPP's requirement to release ‘bonus chunks’, the size of which also vary by tier.

      • Tier 1 - first $50 - 50 VPP's per each $1 chunk - equivalent to 40% rakeback
      • Tier 2 - next $350 - 300 VPP's per each $5 chunk - equivalent to 33% rakeback
      • Tier 3 - next $800 - 1,500 VPP's per each $20 chunk - equivalent to 27% rakeback
      • Tier 4 - next $800 - 9,000 VPP's per each $100 chunk - equivalent to 22% rakeback

      To release the full $2,000 bonus, you must generate 72,000 VPP's.
      That can't be correct that 72k VPP's will release the 2k bonus. When you state for the last 800$ you do actually need 9000*8=72k VPP's just for that.

      I think you need 50*(50/1)+300*(300/5)+1500*(800/20)+9000*(800/100)=152 500 VPP's to clear it. Equal to 2000/(152500/20)=26,2295082% rakeback

      Hi Exitium,

      We've updated the OP to reflect the correct amount - 155,500 VPP's.
      Apologies for the mistake.

      Thanks for bringing it up!

      Hey gumbata1,

      Welcome to the forums. :welcome:

      I am not familiar with the Betfair client but it may mean you have $5 in play somewhere or you have $5 that is not available for cashout. Have you tried Betfair's support at pokerinfo@betfair.com ?

      While you're waiting, you should take a moment or two to Introduce yourself! to us properly.:f_biggrin:

      Cheers :f_drink:
