      Hi,

      Haven't played on PP since I cleared my original no deposit from Pokerstrategy.

      Now I got offered a 100% up to 500$ reload bonus. Clearable in 5 installements (100$).

      Release conditions:

      Released in 5 equal installments of 20.0% of deposit amount. Each installment is issued when: Standard Points = 2 times the bonus amount on PartyPoker.com


      So I would need 200 standard points to clear 100$, right?

      I'm currently playing NL25 or NL50 shorthanded.

      Could any of the partypoker regulars tell me if this 200 standard points /100$ is a good deal or not? (equivalent in rakeback?) Might consider going back to party then.

      Thanks in advance.

      Thats a good reload bonus party is offering. Last month I got a reload bonus offer of 20% up to a maximum of $100. 200 standard points=$100 thats right. Why not deposit the full amount and get even more money. Do you know how long you get to clear the bonus? At nl25 you get 2 standard points per 20 raked hands and at nl50 you get 3 standard points per 20 raked hands. At nl25 you could clear a $100 bonus in 1000 raked hands. You could do that in a single day. I think its a very good bonus.

      200 SPP is for a SSSér on 8 tables 3 days of work on NL25 ( 3 hours per day )

      100% reloads are always lucrative so I would do it ;)

      Yup, it's 2x times TOTAL bonus for each realease. That should be 10x but it seems 8x is enough. 100$ is totally clearable with 4 x NL25 in 10 days. Party is still so soft i think it is worth it eventhough it is not the best bonus around (~25% rakeback + u can exchange points for money?)

      Ok, read up in German forumpart a bit.

      2 = 1.6 rounded up.

      1.6 x basicpoints is needed for every chunk (1/5) of the bonus.

      So total basicpoints to clear total bonus: 1.6x*5 = 8x , which isn't a very good deal alltogether.

      10 days thats not very long. Also the email I got from party about the reload bonus also had another offer. From September 15th to 19th if you can get 100 party points you will be eligible for a 50k freeroll held on September 20th, sounds like a good deal.

      Hello,

      "standard points" or "basic points" are only other words for "party points". I need 1.6 points for 1 $ (25 % reload deposit bonus 15 days maximum 250 $). The offer seems nearly a bit too good. But may be its true. The maximum is 250 $. That means i can deposit 1000$ to get the maximum bonus of 250 $. Or is 250 $ the maximum for my deposit? I dont play frequently on party but with the new table layout i like it. Can sb. help me? thanks very much!!!
