View Full Version : OT: Looking to deposit $500 somewhere

11-27-2005, 06:57 PM
I wasn't sure where to post this but since I like this particular forum the best, I decided to go here.

I'm looking to deposit $500 into a site, hopefully to play a variety of games - SNGs, MTTs, and limit ring games. I was curious as to what sites you guys recommend for bonuses. I will probably play a little more limit ring game poker up front to clear the bonus so a softer game there is obviously preferable.

Thanks for any and all input. I apologize if this information is listed elsewhere but I was hoping for up-to-date bonus opinions and thought you guys would be best to ask.

Party, best selection of fish-full games. There are some signup bonuses like WOWREAL20 and IGMPAY when used with igm-pay, double check the internet forum with a search to be sure.

Depends what stakes and what you want to accomplish. The bonus and software at full tilt are awesome, but the games suck. Party's games are beautiful, but the bonus isn't so good. The stakes you're playing matter because the amount you can make by playing in better games is relative to the fixed bonus amount. Smaller you play, more you should look at sites with bigger bonuses.

I hope to play some 3/6 and 5/10 at some point so that's probably my primary objective. I am viewing bonuses as the deal breaker between two otherwise good sites.

With only $500 you're way underrolled for 5/10 and 3/6, even 2/4.

Putting $500 on a site doesn't mean thats his whole bankroll...

If you are playing 2/4 or higher I recommend Euro bet's 100% bonus. If you are playing lower I suggest party / empire.

Thank you. I'm aware of that. Hence my statement "I hope to play some 3/6 and 5/10 at some point."

As for being underbankrolled to play 5/10 overall...no, I'm fine. But I appreciate the concern.

If you're not already with Absolute I would recommend them with the 200% (AP200) first deposit bonus. That's what I did and am finding it reasonable easy to clear and I am only playing omaha high low 1/2.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I appreciate all of them.

Does anyone have any 5/10 experience at Absolute? I know their SNGs are pretty weak but don't know much about their ring games.

This area is monitored by pokersourceonline.com.
There is no easier bonus out there to earn than parties 20% initial bonus to $100 and no site with more available games. I would go to pokersourceonline and sign up through them and get there additional bonus which can be a chip set or up to $90 gift certificate. Make sure you put a nov. bonus code to increase your prize at pso.

I play $2/$4 shorthand at Absolute. It can be tough- I assume at $5/$10 there's even less mistakes made. I would recommend the Crypto sites. You could do 5-6 of them and even if you broke even - you'd come close to doubling that $500.

If you play smart and steal well you can beat the 5/10 absolute games.

Anyone know what the 5/10 is like relative to Ultimate Bet?
