New players at Sun Poker
are eligible to receive a 100% Sun Poker bonus matching their very first deposit of up to $600. There is no coupon code required in order to qualify for the new player Sun Poker bonus. One can simply download the Sun Poker software
, fund their player account with one of Sun Poker's instant deposit options, then begin playing online poker
and earning Sun Points that will be applied toward the release of the player's Sun Poker bonus into their cash account.
Sun Points are awarded for participation in real money online poker cash games, multi-table tournaments, and sit and gos. For every 5,000 Sun Points a player earns, $5 of the Sun Poker bonus is transferred from their pending bonus account to their Sun Poker cash account. In addition, the player keeps the Sun Points, which are counted toward the player's VIP Poker Club level, and can be exchanged for cash.
The number of Sun points earned for playing real money online poker games
at Sun Poker is relative to the player's VIP Club level; the higher the VIP Club level, the more points one obtains. As a new player starting out at Sun Poker's Mars VIP Club level, $1 paid in tournament entry fees is garnered 150 Sun Points, and $1 in pot rake rewards
players with 15 Sun Poker Points. The following month, if the player reaches level 2 of the Sun Poker VIP Club - Earth - by attaining 7,500 Sun Points in the first month, they will release the Sun Poker bonus even faster, earning 225 Sun Points per $1 paid in online poker tournament
fees and 22.5 Sun Points for every $1 paid in cash game rake.
The details of a player's Sun Poker bonus can be viewed in the My Account tab in the lobby of the Sun Poker software. Several countries have been excluded from receiving the Sun Poker bonus due to past abuses of Sun Poker bonuses. Players living in Australia, China, Bulgaria, Malaysia, Latvia, Ukraine, and Turkey are encouraged to contact Sun Poker after 30 days of real money play, at which point Sun Poker's management will make a decision as to whether or not to allow the player to receive the Sun Poker bonus.
An online poker player
living in Montreal decides to give Sun Poker a try. After downloading and installing the Sun Poker software, the player registers a real money account, and makes an instant deposit of $50 using NETeller. Sun Poker credits the player's pending bonus account with a $50 Sun Poker bonus.
The new player participates mainly in satellites to larger guaranteed multi-table tournaments, earning 150 Sun Points for every $1 paid in online poker tournament entry fees. Eventually, the player obtains 5,000 Sun Points, and $5 of the Sun Poker bonus is transferred into the player's real money account, where it can be used to buy in to more tournaments, or it can be withdrawn when the player is ready to request a cash-out.
The Sun Points that the player earns can also be traded in at the cashier for $1 per each 1,000 points, essentially doubling the player's bonus amount. The player will need to earn 50,000 Sun Points in order to clear the entire $50 Sun Poker bonus.
