View Full Version : Slight change to Poker Plex monthly bonus

You used to get a $50 bonus after you were DEALT 300 hands (dealt meaning it was irrelevant whether or not they were raked and whether or not you contributed).

In November:

"Every player will have the $50 added to their POKER account (not their ECASH account) after they have completed their 250th RAKED Hand of the month!"

Emphasis is theirs not mine.

Its not a huge change and is still very worthwhile IMO. I think it may take a little under 500 dealt hands to reach.

In any event, if I state the bonus as $50, 5x rh, it looks good.

Agree, but my Oct. hands were 308 with 151 raked at 1/2 6 max. Bunch of tighties.

aren't they raked like the other cryptos (i.e. $1 rake out of a $20 pot counts as 1 raked hand)?

Nothing in the email leads me to that conclusion. They simply say a raked hand. I looked on their website and it looks like it isn't yet updated showing the T&C for the November bonus.

No. Interpoker states you need $1 in rake for a "raked hand". At PokerPlex a raked hand at 1/2 begins at $5 pot and .$.25 rake. The only requirements are that you play 1/2 limit or higher-don't know the NL table where the raked hand counts.

Also William Hill gives out 5 british pounds(apprx$8.70) for each hour of play up to 5 hours--again you have to play at 1/2 limit or above.

Dom't know about the others -have only played on the 3.

I've only just signed up today. Does that mean I can get the bonus for this month with 300 dealt hands?

yes if you finish it up before the 31st. also remember the hands must be at least $1/2 limit or 50c/$1 NL to count.

Thanks. I'm playing right now so I'll be able to claim it.

I started playing for the $50 bonus last night at 1/2 limit. I've played about 280 hands in a mix of full-ring and 6-max...and I'm up $75 without having gotten the bonus yet.

Either I'm running really well, or I've found a new site to play at...despite the lack of tables in play.

That will probably be the case for the November bonus.

<ul type="square"> A raked hand is defined as any hand where at least $1 (or /, depending on the table) is taken as rake. Every hand you are dealt cards and the total pot is $20 or more, a raked hand will be counted towards your bonus. You do not have to contribute to the pot for the hand to be counted as raked.

Further to this, every hand you play where between $0.25 and $0.99 (or /, depending on the table) rake is taken will count as 1/4 (one quarter) of a raked hand. [/list]
This was in the October 27th PokerPlex newsletter/e-mail. It was for a promotion in October requiring 2000 raked hands, not the monthly bonus. However, I'd bet 5 against 1 that the new PokerPlex bonus will be a 5/4 version of the Caribbean Sun Poker bonus.

For the October $50 bonus, the 300 hands do not have to be raked.

At the bonus whore website for poker plex it is now saying 250 hands raked, where raked hands between .25-.99 only count ass 1/4 raked hand. Can anyone confirm this, because if this is true, this is another crypto not worth doing.

Fish,

Move up to 2/4.. this clears in about 2 hours! /images/graemlins/smile.gif

haven't ventured to 2/4 6 max yet, might have to give it a try. I'm guessing 2/4 full sucks like 1/2 full.

6 max isn't that great either, but at least there are some 19/1/0.5 players that fold their blinds over 95% of the time.

The Poker Plex website still says 300 hands. I emailed them to ask and got this reply.

Dear Derek,

Hello and thank you for contacting Players Help.

Yes, it is right. In order to receive the monthly bonus, you will need to play 250 raked hands. The requirement is no more 300 hands but 250 raked hands.

We hope this attends to your enquiry. If we can be of any more assistance...

[/ QUOTE ]

I played 303 hands (1/2 6-max) on November 1 and got paid out immediately. I assume 250 of them were raked. I'm absolutely sure there weren't 250 raked for $1 or more.

Mine says a $50 bonus, but there's an extra $50 in there for some reason. I just chose not to say anything and hope my PIN number comes soon.

I just cleared the bonus at 320 dealt hands. I also got the $100 added instead of $50. I am sure they will figure this out soon. Im just going to leave it there for a while and see what happens!

i cleared with just a little over 225 hands total. weird.

WOW.....I had left money since last month and assumed that I hadn't counted the $50 from last month and that was why I saw $100, I cashed it out with no problem. Also, it only required 300 dealt hands at 1/2 to clear.

Sorry for ruining this bonus for everyone.

How did I ruin it? After 'meaning' to sign up with Plex for about 18 months I finally broke down and signed up in October.

What's going on? I hit this bonus up in October and it was a breeze. Quick software, bad players, PT compatable and everything. Tried it tonight and it was slow as [censored] and unplayable. Last time I played on a Thursday morning. Could the number of players really slow it down that much?

Might have been something with my computer. I rebooted and it was working much faster. Players were terrible again, not surprisingly.

Guess they must have figured out the error. I only got a $50 bonus instead of $100 that some of you got.

Can't believe you passed up 900 of the easiest dollars ever. Poker Plex has been so soft

FWIW

FWIW, I just finished 300 DEALT hands and received the bonus. As of right now, it appears it has not changed but I bet that it will in not too long. I'd get this Crypto out of the way first this month.

if you play to 250 raked (by the crypto $1 formula), you will get credited another $50 bonus.
