Default SnG Bonuses

Which sites have bonuses that can be cleared just playing SnGs? I like bonuses, but prefer tournaments to ring games.

PokerStars and Absolute, although Absolute clears really slowly with SnGs or tourneys.

I wouldn't be suprised if this was just an oversight and they never bothered to change it. It used to require 6x Bodog points per dollar to clear a bonus, and the tourneys gave 6 points per dollar of fees. Some time ago they reduced the requirement to 3 points per dollar cleared, but tourney fee award stayed the same.

There are not any strings attached, though, if that is what you mean. I have cleared a few bonuses there playing tourneys only without any problems.

Bodog is first and foremost a sportsbook.
I'm sure they initially designed their 20% endless reload structure to support/drive the sportsbook business.

Since they also have a poker room and a casino, I assume they wanted to find a way to expand the bonus to include them as well. Also, keep in mind, Bodog's poker room traffic is still pretty light compared to the major sites, so I'm sure they wanted to be somewhat generous with the poker bonus to drive traffic.

The offer quite a few guaranteed tournies that don't get enough signups to support the guarantee. So, they'd rather give someone $10 to play in a $100 buy in than to have to fron the $100 themselves.
