View Full Version : Easy to clear bonuses for a small stakes NL player

For the 25NL and 50NL players, which bonuses are worth clearing besides the party skins and the crypto's?

Prima skins
iPoker skins with the old bonus terms

I would also add that playing $25 or $50 NL at Crypto is now probably not worth it given the change to the WR there as far as what constitutes a raked hand (at least $20 pot = $1 rake). Unless you play it off in the casino.

most of the Crypto skins are still using dealt hand or hourly bouns structures, which do not have minimum rake requirements. however, you must play NL with blinds at least 50c/$1 (equivalent of NL$100) in order to count.

your original conclusion was correct, your reasoning not necessarily so.

InterPoker requires a $20 = $1 rake to count as a raked hand. I should have qualified my statement by saying Interpoker and not generalizing all of Crypto.

bodog's bonus is really easy to clear as well...i played .25/50 NL and cleared it in a week.

Anyone have thoughts on Pokerroom for SSNL? What would be an equivalent room to how it clears?

it's 14 cents bonus for every $1 rake ($20+ pot), with 7 cents for a 50c rake. this falls between the bonus structures for Ultimate Bet and Poker Stars, neither of which would be classified as 'easy to clear' for micro NL.

Sorry for asking so many question but you have been informative! You mentioned Absolute, a skin I have yet to whore. Is it safe to say that playing .25/.50 NL Short, the bonus using Neteller (50% to $500) would take roughly 16000 hands? I figure about 30% of pots are raked to .25 at that limit, too little or too much? Just curious as to about how many hands that bonus whould take. Thanks

I would think that more than 30% of 25c/50c NL hands would hit the $5 pot threshould (10bb) necessary to be raked 25c...should be at least 50% IMO. so with shorthanded tables dealing 100 hands per hour, figure about 50 hands raked, or $5 worth of bonus cleared per table.
