Which Rooms Give Me The Longest Period of Time In Which To Earn My Bonus?Published on 2009-07-11 02:34:45
There are a few things that you need to consider when it comes to poker rooms bonuses.
Most people tend to focus mainly on how much the room is offering.
Some rooms have offered ridiculously large bonuses in the past (think five figures).
However, if you read the fine print, you will quickly notice that you only have a very small amount of time to actually earn the bonus.
In the case of the five figure bonus, the room in question was only giving its players a month to earn the bonus. This is something that you need to keep in mind.
Most major rooms give their players 3-4 months to earn their bonuses.
Party Poker, with their $500 "Super Sign-Up" Bonus, give their players 90 days to fully earn their bonuses.
Full Tilt Poker is slightly more generous, allowing their customers up to 120 days to earn their welcome bonus.
Titan Poker, which is one of the largest rooms on the iPoker network (as a matter of fact, I think that they are the largest), also gives their customers three months to earn their initial deposit bonus.
Of all of the major rooms, Pokerstars gives their new customers the longest period of time in which they can earn their bonus.
Pokerstars gives their new customers up to six months to earn their bonuses. As far as I am aware, this is the most generous time period of any of the major online rooms.
The downside? The size of the bonus is fairly weak - a maximum of $50.
Compare that to the $600 that is offered by Full Tilt Poker - it's quite a difference.
