Online poker bonuses allow players to earn cash back for playing real money online poker cash games and tournaments at participating online poker sites. Most online poker sites
offer online poker bonuses to new members making their first deposit into their account. The online poker bonus is generally claimed either automatically by all players who make a deposit with the online poker site, or by entering an online poker bonus code
, marketing code, or promo code.
Typically, an online poker bonus is issued into the qualifying player's pending bonus account with the online poker site. As the player takes part in the real money online poker tournaments
, sit and gos, and cash games, they earn points with the poker room. After a predetermined number of points have been accumulated by the player, a portion of the online poker bonus is released into the player's real money poker account. If the player obtains the required amount of points by a specific deadline, they will receive the entire online poker bonus amount.
The details surrounding an online poker bonus will vary from one poker site to the next. Some offer an online poker bonus matching a percentage of the player's first deposit amount, while some issue a flat online poker bonus amount regardless of how much the player deposits into their online poker account.
Many poker rooms release their online poker bonus in increments of $5, $10 or $20, whereas some online poker rooms
simply release the online poker bonus in one lump sum once the player has acquired the total number of poker room points required.
