      Hi, guys!

      I started playing on Full tilt poker. I got my $50 from PS.com

      And I saw I got 120 days to clear the bonus. But I couldn't find any info what exactly means to clear the bunus.

      So please explain to me. :P

      Thanks in advance!

      Hello mishkagg,

      Bonuses are usually cleared by playing a certain number of raked hands. For the Full Tilt bonus you need 16.7 Full Tilt Points for every dollar so to clear the $50 bonus, you need 835 Full Tilt Points.

      The bonus is paid out in step of $5.

      Best regards,

      Oh, thanks you for the answer!

      Can I ask one more question? What happens if I don't manage to get 835 Full Tilt Points in 4 months? Do I lose $50 from my account on Full tilt poker or what?

      Hello mishkagg,

      The starting capital you received was $50+$50 so a total of $100. You already have $50 of these on your account - and a further $50 will be released in $5 steps. You have 4 months to clear these additional $50. If you don't manage to clear the entire $50 by 4 months time you will have whatever you have managed to clear by then (and simply have missed the chance to clear the rest).

      Nothing is subtracted.

      Best regards
