There are 1000’s of poker rooms online today and almost all offer some kind of bonus to new and old members. It can be in the form of sign up bonuses, matching bonuses or loyalty bonuses. However, They all come with restrictions. There are many terms you need to familiarize yourself with. This can be a difficult task, so I put together a small information page, to cover the basics of poker bonuses.
First deposit bonus
This is a bonus offered to new players. It involves you making a deposit and the poker site giving you a percentage extra. The extra money you get can be anywhere between 10-200% on you deposit. You also have to consider the minimum and maximum deposits to qualify for the bonus cash. Minimum can be as low as $10 and maximum as high as $500. This type of bonus usually comes with a playthrough requirement*.
