I deposited 100 into sportingbet. Every one has a different answer on what their bonus is. Can someone tell me what it is. I plan on playing .25/.50 and .1/.2 limit? Where do they tell me how many raked hands that I have played.

08-23-2005, 09:45 PM
its 500 contributed hands and will clear at those limits

08-23-2005, 10:49 PM
does it have to be NL or can I play limit

08-23-2005, 11:04 PM
You can play limit.

08-23-2005, 11:34 PM
is there a minimum rake?

There's no minimum rake, but it is contributed rake: to have the hand count you must have put money in the pot.
There's no place to see how many hands you've played although I think you can e-mail them to ask. You will get the first $30 after 100 hands.

Rather than start a new thread, i thought i'd append to this - what is the availability of microlimit (.5/1 and 1/2) games between 2pm and 11pm ET?

Thanks in advance,
Pete Harris

There are numerous .5/1 and 1/2 games available, not only in Limit but NL and PL as well. The only problem is that they are usually full. If they are full, it usually doesn't take long if you join the waiting list to get on a table. /images/graemlins/club.gif

There's a waiting list? How do you get to it? I was playing on casino.net and couldn't for the life of me find where I could get on a waiting list

If you want to clear the bonus fast and cheap then play the .25/.50 6 max games. Goes REALLY fast.

08-24-2005, 01:52 PM
Two of the three .10/.20 tables are 5 man tables too. Doesn't make a bit of difference in speed, save for the single 10 man table.

08-24-2005, 02:01 PM
Come to think of it they don't have any 6 max tables there , do they? I think they're all 5 max.

I found Stud to be the fastest way. You contribute to every hand (the ante) and every hand is raked. Not to mention the terrible players...

08-24-2005, 08:23 PM
Can anyone tell me if their bonus CAN be cleared or NOT playing .1/.2?

08-25-2005, 12:24 AM
I cleared it yesterday at .1/.2 limit 5 max

I was gonna start a new thread, but maybe I'll just stick my question in here instead.

Anyone else do any extra bonuses at Sportingbet besides the $100 signup? I was browsing the T&C wondering about a sportsbook bonus and ran across 5% reload Thursdays (http://www.sportingbet.com/content/promo/dep_5_reload.asp) which is a reload up to $37.50. I tried to read the T&C, but it is kinda confusing. Maybe someone that already cleared it can explain it.

Also, if anyone has cleared the sports book bonus, please explain that one as well. I never understand these dang T&Cs.

Made my first deposit on Thursday, got this bonus immediately as advertised.

It looks like you have to deposit to the sportsbook, do you do any kind of a transfer then? How does it work? Thanks.

08-28-2005, 09:12 PM
Transfering the money to my poker account worked for me. Their T&C claim that the limit played must be 1/2 and above. Is this true or do any of the limits work? Thanks in advance

You're in luck! I cleared the first $30 of my bonus at Sportingbet.com playing .10/.20 Limit. /images/graemlins/cool.gif
