View Full Version : Clearing bet365 bonus


11-29-2005, 09:58 AM
Has anyone cleared the initial deposit bonus at bet365 playing .5/1 FL? The reload bonus says you must play 1/2, but i haven't read any standards on the initial deposit bonus.

I cleared it playing 0.5/1 limit. Just have to send support an email when you're done, or for every $10 dollar if you want your bonus faster.

I played a mixture of .5/1 and higher and all the hands counted. Which is good, since the stud FL games there never seem to have games above .5.1 anyways.

there are turbo tables there, which are fantastic for clearing the bonus- the players that tend to play on them are super-loose donkish action-junkies, they get like 200 hands/hr on them, more are raked vs the non-turbo tables, and the clock is like 10 seconds- leading to a lot of time-out folds from the players that can't make instant descisions.

yeeee haaaa.

Is the same true of the Reload bonus? I know it also says 1/2. But is .5/1 good? experiences?

So if somebody playing for the first time than can they play .50/1 for the initial deposit bonus? Thanks

What about lower tables? Would $.1/$.2 fixed limit tables work for clearing the 1st deposit bonus?

For reload bonuses the .5/1 LIMIT table will not count (although they will show up in your raked hands counter, they will not go towards your bonus). Only hands at .5/1 NO LIMIT or 1/2 LIMIT will work for the reload.

As far as the new player bonus goes .5/1 LIMIT is fine as well as .25/.50 NO LIMIT

Hope that helps clear things up a little.

For October and November I played at .5/1 for the reload and it cleared with no problems!

Poker rooms don't always enforce their T&C's. Just yesterday I received credit for November hands played that were below the specified limits. This is a risky strategy however, because they could begin enforcing the terms at any time, and you'd have no recourse.

But as it stands now, they appear to be counting any hand that rakes at least 25 cents, which I believe means the pot has to be either $4 or $5, depending on the game. You probably won't see many of these at .1/.2 fixed.

You make a good point.
I guess I was mistaken on what limits actually work towards clearing the bonus.

Do I need to redeposit money to receive the monthly reload or can I just start playing with the funds that are still there from last month?

Thanks.

You can play with the money you have in the site. As far as
what counts as raked for the bonus.I Think that last month
Some people said they got the bonus(reload) playing .50/1
and some didn't. So you might play 50 hands a .50/1 and
see if they will give it to you.

As rocky as the 365 tables can get it may take a lot of
hands to clear. Even if they are letting people get by
with playing at that limit.

Yes, it apparently varies depending on the customer service rep that handles the request. At least one person reported an initial denial, followed by success after playing a few more hands and sending another request.

I've been playing a mixture of levels. Playing entirely within the rules would force me into some difficult choices. The 1/2 full-ring limit tables are as tight as anything at Crypto. I realize stealing can be profitable, but that seems like a lot of effort. And .5/1 pot- or no-limit is a little out of my comfort zone, especially since most of the games are 6-max.

If your doing the reload they clearly state that it has to
clear at 1/2 limit or .50/1 no limit.

Is the deposit bonus a 500 raked hands for $100? Once you've cleared this, can you just do 500 more raked hands for the December reload bonus?

Worked for me in october and november at .1/.2 (yes, they claimed it only worked at .5/1+). No hassles with service, they just gave it to me.

Edit: oops, I played NL. It took a few days to clear (longer than your average party 7x)
