Default Question about the Littlewoods poker bonus

The terms and conditions say you get 25 for 200 raked hands at 1 or more every month. I'd rather not play the tables for the sake of building my $1/$2 database and keeping things 'clean.' So if I play $1/$2, how the heck will I keep track of how far along I am? Does that cryptocounter program I heard about convert currency for you? I've always just counted the raked hands myself in pokertracker. How do you tackle this bonus?

Thanks.

I don't play at littlewoods, but you should really be clearing all crypto $1 rake hand bonuses at 2/4.... Its much faster!

You can still use PT to count the raked hands.. just use the filter on the Game Notes tab and set preferences to filter for the month! [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

p.s. in cryptocounter you can enter the exchange rate, and it will multiply for you.

The terms of the cryptos usually state 1 unit of whatever currency table you are playing on.
(Note: that this means a substantially higher rake on the non-$ tables)

Also, you can enter the exchange rate in PT, should you play on the non-$ tables.

From their promo rules:

[ QUOTE ]
In order for a Raked Hand to count toward releasing the bonus money, 1.00 or more in rake must be generated in the hand. *Beginning November 1, 2005, as a special feature for our smaller limit players, for each hand you participate in which generate at least 0.25 units ($//), but less than 1.00 unit ($//) of rake, will count as 1/4 (or one quarter) of a raked hand toward clearing your bonus.

For example every four hands you play which generate between 0.25 units and 0.99 units ($//), will count as one raked hand toward clearing your bonus.

[/ QUOTE ]

Only in the first bolded instance do they say instead of $//. This is probably an oversight on their end. I played this month on $1/$2 limit tables and got the bonus after accumulating the right number of full and quarter raked hands.

But did you get the bonus in pounds or dollars?

If the latter, maybe it'd be best to do it for the 25 pounds, yes?

The bonus is in pounds regardless of the tables you play on!
