888 poker is offering FTR's members an exclusive 100% bonus for up to $500/£300! And, to make the deal sweeter, they are giving away a free $8 no deposit bonus (for residents of select countries)!
The 888 poker bonus clears at a rate of $10 Bonus Money per every 100 Bonus Points (BPs) earned. This means 50,000 BPs need to be accumulated to clear the entire bonus. Players earn BPs by participating in real money games.
Bonus Points earned playing Tournaments or Sit & Gos depend on the amount you paid in tournament fees. You earn 2 Bonus Points + 2 Status Points for every dollar that goes the the house. For example, if you registered for a $20 + $2 MTT and a $10 + $1 Sit and Go, $3 ($2 + $1) would be considered the total tournament fees. You would earn 6 ($3 x 2 BP) Bonus Points and 6 Status Points.
At cash or ring games, players will earn 2 Bonus Points + 2 Status Points for every $1 of your contributed rake. At 50NL you would need to play about 1500 hands to earn $10 of your bonus. This number may be skewed by how tight or loose you play since 888 used the contributed rake method. A 50NL grinder would probably have to play at least 75,000 hands to clear the full $500.
This improved bonus from 888poker has many positives to consider. One is that you get an entire 90 days to earn the bonus! This is a piece of cake considering that you only have to rake quite a few hands over the given time frame. Second is that the bonus is release in $10 chunks, so if you fail to pay the amount of rake you need to for your full bonus, you won't be all out of luck.
