Hi, I am considering to sign up either gamesgrid or hollywood poker, probably hollywood since their offer bigger bonus. Anyone with experience with this site? Also, I see statement in bonuswhores.com "15x for $9,000 of the bonus, with the last $1,000 coming as a 0x bonus. (Making the whole bonus a 13.5x bonus.)". What does "15x" means??? Also, "13.5x" is good? or bad??? advice please.

It all depends on how many hands you play but basically what they are saying is that for every hand over $20 (a $1 rake) you will get 1 point. You need 135,000 of them to clear the bonus. Id say it would take AT LEAST 6 months for an average bonus whore to clear it. There are much better bonuses out there that are less than 13.5x and while they dont give you $10,000 in one shot they are usually between $100-$200 for each site every month.

15x, 13.5x, doesnt matter. it is all very bad.

with the BW/hollywood poker 1000% bonus specifically....can i withdraw $500 of my original $1000 deposit and still be able to earn the bonus? I like the fact that it clears in $50 increments....50x15 = 750 points...shouldnt be too bad if you get $50 every 750 points. how many tables can you do at HP?

IF you focus solely on clearing this bonus and put up something like 30k hands/month at 3/6, I don't see how you cannot finish this in like 4 months time. This is not a bad offer for someone who has: no rakeback, ambition to play lots of hands exclusively at one site for 4 months at a time. 10k is nothign to snooze at.

-nice offer - if it wasnt because of the greedy rake they just implied. I believe they have the same rake as pokerroom. Id be very surprised if you have any money left when you have finished the bonus. You will likely lose much faster than you can clear the bonus. Unless you are very lucky and very skilled....
