Types of Poker Bonus

When you play in online casinos you can find a number of poker bonuses.  These can provide you with free poker cash and many other exciting benefits.  The most common type of bonus available is those for new account sign ups.  These are designed to encourage new players to join the website and are very effective marketing bonuses used by most online casinos and poker rooms.

Free Gift

Some poker sites will offer free gifts as incentives to new players. Typically these gifts are desirable gadgets such as MP3 players or smartphones. Free poker gifts are not as common as they used to be. This is because they are some difficulties inherent with offering physical products that need to be stored and then delivered to the account holder.  Some websites get around this by offering virtual gifts such as eVouchers to spend in the online poker store on the website.

Deposit Bonuses

This is the most sought after type of poker bonus. You can really maximise your poker playing cash with top deposit bonuses.  Most of these are based on a very simple offer of 100% match up on all initial deposits. This would be on a maximum deposit amount and over a limited time period.

So for example you could be offered a 100% poker bonus on deposits of up to $500.  That would mean that in order to get the full bonus for poker play you would have to deposit $500. Then you would get another $500 to play with for free.   You would then have a good starting bankroll of $1,000 to start playing with.

Tournament Bonus

If you are already an experienced poker player then you may be interested in poker bonuses that offer free entry tickets to popular tournaments.  Some of these events can have ‘buy ins’ of a couple of thousands dollars or more.  This is a great poker bonus that could save you a lot of money if you enjoy big money poker tournaments.

Terms and Conditions

There will be a number of terms and conditions associated with poker bonuses.  Make sure you read through these first before you apply.  For example in some cases you may only get the bonus if you make a deposit within 1 month of opening the account. This means if you leave it to long to put some money in then you could miss out on any free poker cash bonus.
