      Hello Nemanjal87,

      From my understanding of the wording it simply means that you will need to make bets on the poker tables to a total value of $5000 before you can cash out.

      So if you raise $35 pre-flop and then bet $40 on the flop then this total of $75 is counted towards your required value of $5000.

      Kind Regards,
      -Steve

      Do I understant well that for example: I have get 50 starting capital. I have won next 500 dollars. So 500 dollars I can cashour immediatly and 50 dollars whan I wager 5000.

      Or I have to wager 5000 to cashout my 550 dollars?

      Hi,

      received already an answer. You need to wager $5000 before you can cash out the $50 + winnings.

      Good luck at 888poker,
      Hannes

      you need to bet at the tables for 5000$
      not win or loose , just bet , ie : you win 2500 hands of 1$ and loose 2500 hands of 1$ therefore you are on 0 loss 0 win BUT you made 5k wagering cause you bet 5k. then you can cashout

      Hi,
      How much time do I have to wager the $5000? And where can I monitor the cash I have wagered so far?
      Thanks!

      As far as i'm aware there is no time limit for you to wager the $5000.

      If you contact customer support at 888 poker then they should be able to advise you of the current amount.

      I was wondering about this 5000$ wagered. I guess this only goes for those who got their money through free 50$ offer.

      How about if I make an account and deposit my own money on it. Is then a minimum wager prerequisite for withdrawal or I can then withdraw anytime I want and any amount I want?
      say I deposit 20$, do I have to wager 2000$ before I can make a withdrawal?

      thanks for your answer...

      I found out today that by making your own deposit you are obliged to wager 20-times your initial deposit before cash-out.

      So for an example if you deposit 50$ of your own money you are required to wager 1000$, as an opposite to getting free 50$ from PS where you have to wager 5000$ (100 times the initial deposit from PS)


      Even so, for a begginner playing on micro stakes even 20-times is not so easy to do...

      with regards

      Just out of curiosity, does the wagering mean how much you bet or how much goes into the pot for rake? E.g. if I make a bet of $100 and everyone folds, does that $100 count?

      Wagering is the equivilant of the amount you bet so in your case if you bet $100 and evryone folds then you will have wagered $100.
