      I've been thinking about buying a cash bonus from the shop, please correct me if this incorrect or not recommended:

      1. Get 250K points and buy the $500 cash bonus.
      2. Clear the bonus at $1 per 1000 points = $500 x 1000 = 500K points
      3. Buy the $1K instant cash bonus for 480K points
      4. BR jumps to new level(+$1500!).

      P.S.: Is there a time period limit to clear bonuses since the day they are bought? ($500 bonus)

      2. 10$ (not 1$) per 1000 points.

      as Corey said..

      but I'd wait for at least $1k bonus if I were you.

      o. =/

      so it would end up like this:

      Step 1. Get 250K points and buy the $500 cash bonus.
      2. Clear the bonus at $10 per 1000 points = $500/10 = 50 x 1000 = 50K points
      3. Buy the $1K instant cash bonus for 480K points <--- cant buy it yet
      4. BR jumps to new level(+$1500!). <--- nope

      So for a low volume player like me I must:

      Step 1. Get 480K points(77K atm) and buy $1K instant bonus. I understand I don't have to clear this with MCP?
      Step 2. BR +$1K, welcome to NL100 in case I'm not there already =P
      Step 3. Pat self on back.

      At the rate I'm playing it would take about 2.7 years to get the $1K bonus =/

      For 500$ bonus you would need like 1,4 years + 0,3 years for clearing that bonus... Same shit.

      I will still go for the 1K, I dont want to be tied to Mansion forever with a 500 bonus that has to be cleared. I will go up to NL100 in the future hopefully and points will come in faster.

      Can someone explain me why Titan offers so much more rewarding bonuses than Mansion, although they both belong to iPoker? As I have noticed: Mansion offers $100 cash bonus for 60k MCP, and Titan offers $800 (!) for 80k TP. That seems to be HUGE difference and it seems kinda ridiculous.. Do u happen to know, if there is any catch in the bonus or it is just as bad as it looks like?

      Hey Danny917,

      Even though they both belong to the iPoker network they are 2 completely different Websites/Companies. So they can offer bonuses how ever they want to for what ever value they want.

      You can't compare Titan points with Mansion Points. They are not the same.
      Titan doesn't give points at the same rate as Mansion.
      At the end, you need almost same number of hands for same cash bonus on Titan or Mansion. But Titan is slightly better anyway. But not much.

      I think it equals the same only if you use Mansion for more than 6 months, because you get their "loyalty boost" after that period of time. If you play less than half a year, I think Mansion is still much less rewarding.

      I think Mansion becomes better if you play there for 6 months. I think I already calculated this before.

      You can do it too (it's not that hard) and report back.

      Should I go for the $100 or $500 clearable bonus right now instead of waiting for the $1K? I have 77.7K MCP and would make around 400 MCP a day.

      Reasons:

      - Clearing the $10 increments will motivate me to play more.
      - I will get to NL100 faster.
      - I can buy the $1K instant bonus much faster when I'm on NL100.

      Aight, I tried to compare cash bonuses and that's what I found:

      http://www.mansionpoker.com/club-mansion/calculator/

      http://www.titanpoker.com/pl/vip_club.html#calc

      Data I put in:

      -Fixed limit
      -Full ring
      -0.5/1$
      -20h/week
      -6 tables

      Results after:1 month/3 months/6 months

      Titan - $260/$1,040/$2,260
      Mansion - $74/$479/$787

      I am still not sure if I searched correctly, but that is what I found on both websites. I'd be happy if sb could check that, and report it back here, because according to these graphs it seems even sicker for me than before ;o

      400*30 = 12000 MCP per month

      3*12000 + 30000 = 66000 MCP



      Well that's really low to be honest. Maybe in your place, I would really cash in that 100$. I think your reasons are good so, go ahead :)

      Don't use calculators :) I'll calculate for you from actual data, if you want. Don't have time atm, will do in few hours.

      FWIW, I did a bit of a comparison recently (including the loyalty boosts).

      My calcs had Titan > Mansion by a significant margin in terms of $/adjusted points on both Pro/Gold status (~50%) and Elite/Platinum status (~25%) (Mansion/Titan).

      I assumed (based on reviewing my history) that the approximate ratio of base MCP:TP per hand was 1.15:1.

      Of course my calcs may have been incorrect (been known to happen) but it convinced me to move back to Titan if I ever clear my $1k bonus at Mansion. :f_mad:
