      Read all and still dont understand fully:
      if i make a 600$ deposit in one time i have
      a half year to clear the bonus
      and if i i deposit 300$ and after 89 days deposit
      another 300$ i have a total of 89 days+ half a year to clear the bonus ??
      Am i totally wrong o right?

      Hey advola,

      Once you make your first deposit, you then have 90 days after that day to deposit up to the full $600 bonus.
      AFAIK It does not add an extra 90 days to your initial 90days if you deposit once again while your getting your total up to $600.
      From your First deposit you have 6 months to clear however much you deposit in your 90days days from your first deposit

      Hope this helps.

      Here's another link if this didn't quite make sense, hehe.


      Regards,

      Kyle.

      Kyle is actually mistaken there.

      The clearing period depends on your date of deposit.

      I made two deposits one week apart. The expiry date of the second bonus, is exactly six months from the second deposit date.

      So the best say to exploit this bonus, if you don't have so much money lying around and aren't playing the mid/high stakes is to deposit again right before the deposit period is over, this will give you 9 months to clear the whole thing.

      But IMO is you are playing NL50+ the deposit should be easily cleared in 1-2 months.

      I've cleared $450/$600 playing Nl25/50 SSS multitable in the 2 months i've been active so far.

      /\ /\


      so as said here i understood correctly?
      who between of you is right???


      my only problem is i hate cash games...
      and play only mtts up to 55$
      and 45plyrs sng 26$ buyin
      multitable 3 at the most...
      so its hard for me to clear it fast so a extra 3 mounths will be very helpfull

      so who is right??? im really want to start there yet...


      another q: where to write the "stars600" code???
      cuze i want to get pokerstrategy points from stars to

      or it is different from the refferal code

      cuze in full tilt there is no deposit code

      Hey advola,

      I'm not sure why elhh82's expiry date starts from his 2nd deposit, maybe got lucky :)

      My advice would be to contact support@pokerstars.com ASAP to get an official confirmation on what their conditions are for this offer.

      About your questions referring to where to write your stars code and gaining pokerstrategy points:

      If you already have a PokerStars account it is not possible to re-track. Sorry. There is many of us that would wish to have our account re-tracked but they just won't do it. :(
      If you haven't already got a Pokerstars account:


      Hope this helps.

      Regards,

      Kyle.

      so

      let me get this straight

      in an nl50 game, you release at least $10 every 170 hands that the rake is over .40c?

      i am thinking of joining ps.

      kyle, i deposited 300 twice.

      the first bonus expires six months from the first deposit, the second one expires six months from the second deposit.

      Player deposits $300. He gets $300 of pending bonus that will release in $10 increments every time he earns 170 VPPs for the next 6 months or until this instalment of the bonus is fully cleared (17 x 300 = 5100 VPPs). If he deposits another $400 within the next 90 days he will get a further $300 of bonus (as the maximum bonus is $600). This $300 will release in $10 increments every time he earns 170 VPPs. The player will start to earn this instalment after the first $300 has been cleared and will earn it until the bonus is fully cleared or 6 months after the second deposit.
