      ok it just occurred to me

      if you have a bonus to clear and you need 5000 points to do it...

      could you buy 5k points from iron man shop for 150 medals? it should do the trick, right? or even get into a satellite with full tilt points, win it and not enter the main event, therefore earning points

      Hi George,

      Sadly not, you have to actually "earn" the points by playing. It's not so much the points themselves, but the rake that you generate whilst playing that is used to clear the bonuses.

      Sorry mate, nice thinking though.

      but a friend was clearing the first deposit bonus and he entered a sat using ftp for the $750k guarantee. he won the sat and opted out of the tourney, earned 42k points and his bonus was cleared instantly

      Ok mate,

      Well for a tournament, I guess he effectively paid the entry so gained the payout through playing, however it's not possible to clear from just purchasing FTP using medals.

      Best regards,


      Bart

      WOW... are you serious, his bonus was still active when he won but as soon as he unregistered his bonus magically cleared itself?

      well to enter the 750 guarantee you need 43k points.

      when he won the sat he was effectively given 43k points to enter the tournament and was registered automatically.

      so, when he unregistered, he was given the points into his account and his bonus was unlocked.

      maybe we should bear taht in mind when clearing mid year bonus and so on.

      all it takes is a cheap ftp satellite.

      thanks for the info bart :)
