View Full Version : Revised point structure at Hollywood

Hollywood Poker has just changed how their point/bonus system works, so I was wondering if anyone has already or would like to do some analysis on how the change will affect clearing bonuses there.

https://member.hollywoodpoker.com/help/PokerPoints.html is the link to the new rake/point structure. I'm not sure if you have to log into the site to see the list or not.

I know I'd seen some posts about the Hollywood bonus being terrible to clear under the old system. I just started clearing the $10,000 bonus there last night, so I don't have any data regarding how quickly points were gained using the old system vs. the new system, but I 3-tabled $2/$4 for about 4.5 hours and earned 760 points. While not incredibly fast, that doesn't seem terrible.

with the new points system, bonus is worth as follows for ring games:

7x = 100% rakeback
9x = 78%
15x = 47%

13.5x (bonuswhores 15x with the extra $1000 at the end)
= 52% rakeback

5 points per $1 tourney fee remains the same as before, as does casino points.

higher stakes will "clear" the bonus faster, but the rake contribution is proportional at all limits.

Perfect. Thanks.

Update to the original post:

Here's a link to the new point structure that doesn't require you to be logged in:

Any idea how 52% rakeback at Hollywood with the new rake compares to lesser rakeback elsewhere?

Are Hollywood players eligible for the daily point bonuses at PokerRoom, or do they have something else similar?

Seems like if I could work off the BW bonus in occasional high-volume days it could be a good deal. This had been my approach to PR reloads before: run them off in a single day and get an extra $30 or so.

As of today, itís easier than ever to RAKE at Hollywood Poker! Thatís right Ė our RAKE structure has been improved so you can LOSE MONEY in RAKE faster. Weíre talking more RAKE per Real Money hand and this means you can LOSE YOUR MONEY FASTER, earn LESS bonuses cause you lose it while earning, and GO BROKE more quickly than ever before!
