Default Hollywood Poker 1000% to $10000 bonus.

Surprised that this hasn't been posted here. Bonuswhores has a special deal with HP for this long term (1 year) bonus. The first $9000 is cleared at 15x points and the last $1000 is free after you cleared $9000.

However, with the new pokerroom/skin rake structure, I'm not sure if this bonus is better than rake back, at least probably not in the lower levels.

Yeah, I just saw that at bonuswhores. All you have to do is deposit $1,000 to get the $10,000 bonus. Not sure if the bonus clears quickly enough; besides, with all of these other bonuses I am trying to clear, I might not have time to get around to it!

On the conservative side of things if you earned a point a minute, 135,000 points would take 2250 hours. That is about the average 40 hour work week for an entire year. Often at PR the games are not good during the earlier parts of the day, and there is generally not enough traffic to have very many high stakes games going.

I can't see many lower stakes players taking advantage of this. Furthermore, PR has a policy that if you withdrawal during the bonus period before clearing you forfeit the bonus. Tying up $1k (plus whatever you win)for that long is -ev for a lot of players.

You can make 10k in bonuses a hell of a lot easier than that, and you get to get paid as you go, although a 10k chunk of cash at the end would be pretty cool.

I don't believe PokerRoom has this policy. I've deposited for a bonus and withdrawn most of the deposit within days. The bonus is still there. Can't say if Hollywood has the same policy or not.

OK I stand corrected.

Maybe it is just their initial deposit bonus.

I hadn't realized it was released $50 at a time.
