Cashing out poker bonuses


In my previous post I've talked about some + and – of online poker bonuses. Now I would like to tell you about how to cash out the bonus you have earned. The first thing you will have to do is to clear it out. You may ask what does that mean? Well clearing out the bonus mean, that you will have to play a certain amount of time or hands before the bonus will be released to your account. This is kind of security to avoid players of getting the sign up bonus and immediately withdrawing the sign-up money without ever playing. That would lead online poker room to bankruptcy 🙂 Also, tournament play usually does not count in to this. There is usually a link on the poker room to your profile or cashier to check how many hands you still have to play to clear out the bonus. Most often, there is a 1 raked hand per 1 bonus dollar rule applied, but some exceptions exist.

So after clearing out the bonus, money is released into your account and you can use it wherever you want. You may continue playing with it or you may withdraw.

See you at the tables!
