View Full Version : Sign up bonus on Stars


12-01-2005, 07:45 AM
Downloaded Stars software last night- want to sign up for real money games (will be nano / micro limits for first few months)- I couldn't find any links to Bonuses? I will be deposting about $50 to start with.

Any help / pointers much appreciated.

Ian

They only do random deposit bonuses.

Just wait until the next time they advertise, they come every 6 weeks or so.

Thanks for the info.

Just as a rough guide- what would be a typical sign-up bonus on $50? And is there ususally a restrictions on which games you need to play to clear the bonuses- are the nano / micor limits included?

Cheers,
Ian

20% most likly, So $10 hehe.

They are stacked, meaning they dont expire and you can have 2000 bonuses all waiting to be cleared. I've got about $500 to be cleared($150, $200 etc).

You can clear it when you get to higher stakes buddy.

Good luck at the 0.05/.10, Enjoy it - its fun!

Are you only entitled to these bonuses if you sign-up for a bonus when you open the account?

I haven't worded that very well... What I'm trying to deduce....

If I get home tonight, open a real money account on Stars with no bonus (as there aren't any on at the moment), will I be able to take advantage of future bonus offers?

I am eager to get started- hence I was planning on starting on the nano limits tonight. For the sake of $10 or so, it it really worth me waiting for a few weeks until the bonus offer comes along?

You will be eligible for future bonuses.

They are generally 20% up to $120.

They are stackable.

They never expire.

You need to get FPP points to clear them and I don't know how far down in the nanos you get FPP. I know my wife plays some at the .02/.04 tables and doesn't get any.

But the bonuses are stackable and never expire.

I have the last three bonuses stacked and am only about halfway through clearing the first one which was from the start of the WCOOP which was, I think August or something.

I don't understand how stacking works ... do you mean you can just put off the bonus until future months? what do you have to do to accomplish this... just sign up for it and then don't deposit money until you want to work on the bonus?

sign up, screw the bonus $10 is crap and by the time you can clear it, it will be peanuts anyhow.

Then load up PT/PA configure both, then start grinding .05/.10

Stackable means you can have multiple bonuses to clear at the time.

Dont expire - Means exactly that, they will stay with you FOREVER untill you decide to clear them.

i have 3stacked or so, about $500 worths.

Stacking means you can deposit 600 bucks for a 120 bonus. You can then decide to not play at stars. 2 months later they offer another bonus and you put in another 600 bucks and now you have 240 in bonus to clear. You can continue this way as long as you want. 3 years from now you can then decide to clear your 2000 dollars in bonus money. that is stackable

You have to deposit to get the bonus every time they come around.

If you REALLY want to clear a bonus with a $50 roll, you can play the stars tournaments. The $1+.20 gives 1 FPP, so you would basiclaly get .20 off your entry.

For $50, shouldn't he be playing the Boss sites? Of course, the conditions might have changed from when I cleared them way back when, but IIRC, you could clear the Boss bonii at microlimits. No better bonus for someone with only $50. Do all 3 for $100 each, then go to Stars.

Which sites are the boss poker sites (i know imperial). And assuming the terms haven't changed, a contributed rake hand at any limit counts?

There are a ton of posts about the Boss sites. Just do a quick search and you'll find all you need to know. I don't want to mislead you on any of the latest info, but these are definitely the best microlimit bonii out there. If you can't win at these tables, don't even think of moving up elsewhere. Softest games EVER.

I like the advice. I am worrying too much about $10 (6?!!)

Thanks for all the info guys- going to sign up this weekend and get started.

I already have PT.

I have had a few private messages offering me upto $50 sign up bonus. Are these kind of "affiliate deals" OK in principle? Should I be taking someone up on an offer? Or are there any big catches to look out for?

Sorry for the noob questions- it just sounds too good to be tru- ie sign up with Stars on my own and get ziltch, or sign up through someone and get $50 free????

Regards,
Ian

Ignore every PM you get, If they are a decent place they would be decent enough to pay for advertisting.

Basically all this "Instant bankroll" schemes are ok to start with, but you lose things like $100 party bonus...

If you grind like i did and others from 0.05/.10 building a BR and whoring when you can then you will be able to go to party and et the full $100.

Just grindf mate, Dont do any instant fast bankroll schemes.

If you have any q's and dont wanna spam boards feel free to pm me, I've helped a few guys go from $0 to $600, bonuses have changed though.

Thanks POKhER- I really appreciate the info.

I thought it was enough to learn how to play the actual game, let alone the minefield of RB/Bonuses/PT/HUD/etc/etc- I might actually get to playing soon!!!!

Ian

Lol, Keeping up with bonuses is tough, make BonusWhores you're homepage and check the bonus forum section often.

Right now you wont have enough capital to get them, But thats what should be the extra driving force for you.

I worked from 0.02/.04, you're starting above me /images/graemlins/laugh.gif Good luck.

When you get to .25/.50 bonus whoring becomes a bit more of a reality, I mean you could chuck in $600 with debit card then back out to get the stars reloads(Stackable) and think of it as a future invest ment but thats your decision.

I keep my OWN cash out of poker, Playing with winnings.

12-02-2005, 09:48 AM
I think I'm probably worrying too much about betting "into everything" for the outset?

Does this sound like a solid plan to you:

-Delete ALL private messages with offers of bonuses / RB
-Transfer 20 into Neteller
-Sign up with Stars: Deposit 20 with them
-Configure PT to work with Stars HH's.
-Start playing (and enjoying)the 0.02/0.04 limit games
-Think about bonuses and possibly RB when I am a few rungs up the ladder.

How does that sound?

Many thanks
Regards,
Ian

Or you can do casino.net put in $20 Play 500 raked hands,
these are contributed by the way. Break even get the $100
bonus then do sportingbet and then sporting odds(note
sporting odds doesn't take Neteller and they will not let
you cash out until 28 days after your deposit).

They took out all of the micro limit tables so you have to
play micro No limit. The software is bad and the players are
worse,so if your game is on you should make even more than
your deposit and bonus.

Do a search on this forum look for Boss,boss media or just
search the three names that I gave you. It has been some
time since I whored these sites and they may have changed.
But I remember anything being said about it on this forum.
