What is a bonus from a poker site?

Poker bonuses explained

It might sound too good to be true. But online poker websites offer bonuses to new players when they first create an account. Why do they make these offers available? It is an effort to advertise and attract new players. These new players will deposit money, and the site is betting on the fact that they will earn more from the player in the long run in the form of rake than they will lose from the amount that they give in the bonus.


This is not the only reason that a poker site would want to give a bonus to a new player. In addition to the longterm benefit of rake from this player, sometimes poker players will move from playing poker to playing other games such as blackjack and roulette. In these games, the poker site which also offers gambling is able to make a much better profit.

What kind of bonuses are available online? It depends on the country. For specific information about Irish poker bonuses, click the link. Otherwise, here is a general explanation of what kinds of different bonuses are available.

Deposit Match bonuses

These deposit match bonuses are usually actually the best option for most players. Especially if you are a strong grinder or paly a lot of poker, you should be able to make the most profit from a deposit match bonus. This can range to up to 600USD, which can be unlocked by playing generally stakes of around 25 cent and 50 cent blinds. It will take a lot of time to unlock these bonuses, however. Unless you are playing a lot of tables of 1 dollar big blind poker with a buyin of 100 dollars, you can expect to require at least full time hours to be able to unlock this bonus. Thus, it is vital that you know you are a strong, winning player in order to unlock these bonuses.

Not all sites offer this kind of 100% deposit match bonuses. A site that does for example is www.pokerstars.com. If you are new to poker, you will want to start on a site that does not. Why? Because you can utilize a different bonus which requires a smaller investment, and once you have improved as a poker player, then you can go onto a site that has a 100% deposit match.

No deposit required bonus

These ones often have a huge amount of terms and conditions. However, you can actually profit through these. It can be money credited to your account that you have to unlock, but over the long term you can actually start a bankroll without ever having to deposit a single cent.

Smaller match deposit and tournament credits


If you do not want to invest hundreds into poker, you can usually max out an immediate deposit bonus between 20-40USD in terms of tournament tickets. Often, sites will allow you to deposit a small amount of money and get a small match that does not require very much play in order to fully unlock.
