      Pacific has a nice bonus, instant and equals around 50% rakeback.You cant multitable a lot there though.
      Stars is great for multitabling, but the bonus is just 100$,then you need some SnG skills to convert the points to cash...
      Landbrokes has a nice bonus, and with lots of play it will be cleared.
      PokerKings can also benice, bonus equals 20% rakeback,and you have 30% rakeback too...

      i was thinking moving some BR to Pacific, but i dont like, or maybe i dont understand about bonus clearing there:
      "1. 50% up to $175 instant bonus
      The bonus will be transferred to your account as soon as you have made the deposit. Before you can cashout you need to have 20x the amount of the bonus in turnover, which means if you have a bonus of $100 you need to have 20x$100=$2,000 in turnover to be able to cash it out. For the full $175 bonus you therefore need $3,500 in turnover.

      "
      i dont understand what turnover?! net rake or what?!to simplify is better maybe to know how many hands on certain limit to clear the bonus or to have posibility to cashout?! somebody know that?!

      stars is good, very good software, perfect for multi-tabling, shared rake points and lots of traffic BUT only $100 max...

      $2000 in turnover means $2000 in rake and since its Contributed Rake isntead of dealt (=Anti-SSS :D ) that's why they mean turnover in terms of revenues.

      You have to contribute $2000 in rake by yourself in order to cash out the money eventually

      Are you sure with this Gerv? On the German site there are players saying they cleared this $3500 turnover in 2 days of NL50 and that you need around 350 points to clear this bonus.

      I would therefore say the "turnover" means having bet or wagered this amount. This is of course not the same as actually having raked that much.

      The rest of the bonus seems a lot harder to clear since you have to actually collect 3k bonus points ;)

      Hi Soycd

      Thanks for your comment, if it is so then is OK, but maybe do you know or you have read on German forum, what about the cashout, it is saying that you must contribute 20x times amount of bonus or rake?! to cashout, i am not shure about that what it means...?! It is strange to me...What do you think?Thanks, Drach

      Hey drachdudek

      Judging by the German thread you need to have "turned over" the amount 20 times. So basically bet/wagered it (not paid it in rake). Another player said he needed a total of 350 points to be able to cash out the instant bonus.

      The other part of the bonus is a lot harder to clear, especially on low limits and requires 3,000 bonus points to clear.

      Hey SoyCD

      You are really helpfull..Thanks...What do you think about that below:.

      !

      ""everbody is saying "it is really easy", but i still didnt figure it out how many FPP do you need to be able to cash out...as according their bonus policy they are saying you need 20x times amount of bets/wageres to be able to clear, and on some German forum people say you need 350points (probably FPP)..but i dont get, i was playing yesterday some hours on NL25 - NL100 (4-5 tables max) and for shure i have made some "bets" maybe 1x time amount of instant bonus, but i got only 7FPPs...what is not in correlation with what people are saying?! Do you have some thoughts and experiences playing there and when were you able to cash out?

      BTW, first experience about playing there is not so bad..software is OK, i had little more problems with software on Everest, but there is very very few tables, but table selection and comfort of play is suitable...""


      Thanks again

      Hey drachdudek,

      Quote from 888.com site


      Frequent Player Points (FPPs) are earned for every game or tournament you play and can be converted to cash at a rate of $1 per 100 FPPs from the 'My Bonuses' page in the Cashier.

      Bonus Points (BPs) are used to clear your pending bonuses. BPs are accumulated only if you have an active pending bonus; check your bonuses in the 'My Bonuses' page in the Cashier

      You can earn FPPs and BPs by:

      1. Playing in poker ring games -earn 2 FPPs + 2 BPs (if applicable) for every $1 of your contributed rake.*
      2. Playing poker tournaments -earn 2 FPPs + 2 BPs (if applicable) for every $1 of tournament fee.
      3. Playing casino games (from your poker account) -earn 1 FPP + 1 BP (if applicable) for every $16 wagered in the casino.

      We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to deny a player of any bonus or promotion including without limitation FPPs or BPs, and/or rescind any policy in respect of such player, either temporarily or permanently.

      * Contributed rake refers to how much rake you are directly responsible for based on how much you contributed to the raked pot relative to the other players at the table. Example: If you bet $25 into a $100 pot (25%) and a $4.00 rake is taken from the table, you contributed $1.00 of rake (25%), which earns you 2 FPPs and 2 BPs (if applicable).
      Hope it helps clear things up :)

      Best regards

      Hey SoyCD

      Thanks again..This is clear.

      As my primary issue was "when and how much to cashout" i contact their support and their message was very clear, maybe also good info for others..

      They said according their bonus policy you can clear all the bonus when gathering arround 3000$ (on the top left corner of your table this bonus is shown), you can cash-out your instant bonus (ex. to cash out your investment + instant bonus) when you reach 300 points...But you can always cash-out your initial deposit and you will left only instant bonus on your account :) ...So what i did is that i cashed-out my initial deposit (i dont like playing there SSS, to less tables...) and i left with my instant bonus which i will try to build-up untill reachin 300points and then i will cash-out all...wish me good luck :)
