BestPoker uses an interesting bonus system. You can choose whichever variant you deem to be the best for you: if you want to invest only a small amount of money and be able to clear the BestPoker bonus quite easily you can for example use the $50 bonus. You can however also choose to go for the claim bonus of $2,000. The choice is yours and while you may choose any of the 6 poker bonus variants freely, keep in mind that with a low first deposit it is very hard to clear the higher bonuses.
The various different claim bonus offers have deadlines ranging from 90 days for the lowest to a mere 20 days for the highest poker bonus. All of the offers have been changed from lump sum deals to incremental offers which is definitely more player friendly. The amount of steps and money cleared per step vary greatly depending on the respective bonus and should be taken into account when deciding which bonus variant to go for.
You can find the various different poker bonus offers listed below in more details.
BestPoker currently doesn't offer any reload bonus. However there are reload promotions on an irregular basis and you will be informed by BestPoker in time.
We mentioned the six different poker bonus versions that BestPoker offers their first depositors. These offers vary greatly in amount of money and time for clearing them. For easier understanding we have decided to list the different bonus offers below:
- $50 - 5x$10, Time: 90 days
- $100 - 4x$25, Time: 60 days
- $300 - 4x$75, Time: 60 days
- $600 - 4x$150, Time: 60 days
- $1,200 - 4x$300, Time: 30 days
- $2,000 - 2x$1,000, Time: 20 days
When making your first deposit you can freely choose any of the different poker bonuses. As you may imagine it will not make a lot of sense to go for the highest bonus with a first deposit of $100. You would have to be an incredible poker player to clear at least the first part of the $2,000 bonus, let alone the whole bonus, in 20 days with a bankroll of $100.
The biggest danger with any claim bonus always lies in a possible overestimation of one's own capabilities. Keep in mind that - especially as a new poker player - it makes no sense in picking a big bonus only to realise half way through that you won't be able to actually clear it. Fortunately the new bonus variants offered by BestPoker are incremental bonuses thus allowing you to clear them in several steps which basically means that even if you overestimated your skill and time spent playing you should not end up completely empty-handed.
The point system has also been revamped and simplified. You will now need 8 Player Points per bonus $ regardless of the chosen bonus instead of up to 11 as was the case before. The $50 bonus will require a total amount of 400 PPs while the $2,000 bonus requires you to earn a whopping 16,000 PPs. Player Points can be earned for participating in cash games (1 point per $ of rake, the rake is limited at $3) and tournaments (5 points per $ of tournament fee).
The Player Points are being calculated in steps of 0.1 which basically means that a rake of $1.80 doesn't merely earn you 1 point but 1.8 - some small thing which can already make a huge difference after some hours of play. Also be advised that sometimes these Player Points take up to an hour to be credited to your poker account so it can be a bit hard to know your exact Player Points amount especially when multi tabling.
Attention: We want to reiterate that with the introduction of the claim bonus system at BestPoker new poker players run the risk of opting for a bonus variant that exceeds their first deposit and their level of play, making it hard or sometimes impossible to clear the whole poker bonus. Luckily BestPoker decided to simultaneously switch from lump sum deals to incremental bonus offers which means you will at least have the chance to clear some of the bonus instead of losing out on all of it if you indeed overestimated your level of play. We strongly advise you to roughly calculate how many Player Points you can achieve in the time given for clearing your preferred poker bonus before actually deciding for it. The best poker bonus in the world is useless if you cannot clear it in time.
