Party Poker is one of the world's biggest online poker sites and also offers casino games and sportsbetting. PartyPoker.com was once the biggest online poker room but since the 2006 legislation has fallen behind pro-US sites like FullTilt and PokerStars. Still, Party Poker is the place to play for European poker players which makes their games quite soft. Along with a sizeable initial deposit bonus players should have no trouble building their bankroll at Party Poker.
PartyPoker.com recently upgraded its bonus offer for FTR members! This new offer is a huge 100% on your initial deposit up to $/£/€500! PartyPoker.com has one of the most easily cleared bonuses around. To clear a bonus (receive the money in your account) all you need to do is complete the requirements Party Poker has set and the money will be released to your real money account.
When installing the software, be sure to type in the Party Poker bonus code FTR500 so that Party Poker will automatically credit your account the proper amount for the bonus. You can earn 100% of your initial deposit up to $/£/€500. This means that the most you can earn with the bonus is $/£/€500 total. To earn the entire $500 you need to make a deposit of $500 (100% * $500 = $500 bonus.) If you decide to deposit less than $500 you may earn 100% of whatever your deposit amount was.
Clearing this bonus is a piece of cake, but it varies based on which currency you deposit. For $USD, collect 6 times as many PartyPoints (8x if you deposited with Euros) as your total bonus. So $500 would require 3,000 PartyPoints. The bonus is released in 10 parts, 10% each time. So every 300 PartyPoints will send $50 into your account. For £GBP, it is 9 times Party Points and €EUR is 8 times Party Points.
Earning PartyPoints depends on what stakes you are playing. Basically, the higher the play, the more you earn, as you would expect. But it is pretty top heavy - at $.05 - $.10 you need 380 raked hands for 10 Party Points, while at $.50 - $1 you need only 13 hands per 10 points. If you play as high as $5 - $10, ten points are earned every 13 raked hands. This keeps going up and up, so obviously the higher you play the faster you will earn. The bonus expires in 60 days so make sure to clear it before then!
In addition to clearing the deposit bonus, PartyPoints are now worth more than ever. Party Poker now has a cash back (works like rakeback) program built into their VIP rewards. It works like this – Play and collect PartyPoints, the more PartyPoints you collect the higher your VIP level, the higher your VIP level the more cash back bonuses you collect. By reaching the top tier, you can earn up to 40% cashback! Yes, that works just like Party Poker rakeback, built right into their VIP program!
Party Poker has eliminated fees for ALL deposit methods (excluding Wire Transfers)!
Remember to use the Party Poker bonus code FTR500 when signing up to be credited the bonus amount to your bonus account!
