of up to $200 by entering our exclusive WPT Poker deposit bonus code, 2012free. This is the maximum World Poker Tour bonus that can be activated with
In order to release the World Poker Tour bonus, players will be required to earn 6 WPT Points for each $1 of the WPT Poker bonus. WPT Points are accumulated when players participate in real money online poker
cash games, and tournaments with an entry fee.
At WPT Poker, and all poker rooms, a small fee called "rake" is taken from the pot for facilitating the poker game
. For every $1 a player contributes in rake at cash games, WPT Poker bestows 2 WPT Points to that player.
The amount of rake paid by each player in a pot is calculated by dividing the total rake collected from an individual pot by the number of players who were dealt cards in the hand. Thus, if $1 is raked from a pot in which four players were dealt into the hand, then each player is considered to have contributed $0.25 to the pot, and is awarded 0.5 WPT Points.
WPT Points are also gained when players pay tournament entry fees. A tournament entry fee is usually about 10% of the buy-in amount. For instance, when buying into a $20+$2 Sit and Go, $20 is contributed to the prize pool, and $2 is paid to the poker room for their services. WPT Poker issues 2 WPT Points for every $1 paid in tournament entry fees; therefore, the $20+$2 Sit and Go would earn each participant 4 WPT Points.
To determine the total number of WPT Points that would be required to clear the 100% WPT bonus, multiply the total bonus amount by 6. For example, a $100 WPT bonus would require players to acquire 600 WPT Points during the 60 day bonus earning period.
The World Poker Tour online poker room does not award partial bonuses. In order to claim the WPT Poker bonus, it is necessary to accumulate the required number of WPT Points within 60 days of making the first deposit, else the entire World Poker Tour bonus will be forfeited.
