888 Poker Bonus Review

888 Poker is always looking to attract new players to their online poker site, and the welcome (or opening) bonus at 888 Poker is a big part of the package 888 offers. While an online poker opening bonus is a pretty straightforward promotion at the end of the day, it can still be a bit befuddling for a new online poker player unaccustomed to the terms and jargon of poker sites like 888.

With those players in mind - along with players who want to know the rakeback value of the opening bonus at 888 - we've put together this guide covering everything you need to know about the opening deposit bonus at 888 Poker.

888 Poker opening bonus - Basic elements

Make your first deposit at 888 Poker and you'll be eligible to cash in on a 100% bonus up to $400. That means 888 Poker will match the amount you deposit with a bonus amount. You can then earn that bonus (moving it from bonus money to playable funds) by playing real money cash games at 888 Poker as well as 888 Poker tournaments.

Use the promotional code XXXXXXXXX when making your first deposit at 888 Poker.

How to deposit at 888 Poker

Only your first deposit at 888 Poker qualifies for the opening bonus. You can only make one qualifying deposit, so you'll want to deposit the most you can (up to the maximum bonus amount of $400) in order to get the largest possible opening bonus at 888 Poker.

How to release the 888 Poker opening bonus

As indicated above, bonus money must be converted into playable funds before it can be used for games or cashed out. 888 Poker converts bonus money in $10 increments as you hit established point thresholds through playing real-money games at 888 Poker. For complete details on how that conversion works, continue on to the next section.

How Do I Earn the 888 Poker Opening / Welcome Bonus?

888 Poker releases $10 of your bonus every time you earn 100 status points. When we say "release," we simply mean that the money is moved from your bonus account (where it can't be cashed out or used for play) into your real-money account (where it can be used as you like). Note that you don't have to redeem or spend these points to release the bonus - you simply have to accumulate them. This repeats until you have released your entire opening bonus into your real-money account.

Earning Status Points at 888 Poker

Ok, so you need 100 status points at 888 Poker to get $10 of your bonus released into your real-money account. But how do you get status points?

Simple enough - 888 Poker awards you two (2) status points for every one (1) in rake you pay (including fees paid to enter tournaments). So you need to pay $50 in rake to earn 100 status points, meaning that the 888 opening bonus returns at a rate of 20% rakeback.
