No Deposit Bonus guide
October 12, 2008
This is our guide to getting the best use out of the various No Deposit Poker Bonus offers that are currently available. It is only intended as a general suggestion, and cannot take into account that some offers may not be available to the player.
Many free poker bankroll offers are available at the same poker room but are offered by different bankroll providers. For example, Titan Poker is the most popular of the ‘no deposit poker rooms’. There are currently four different providers that offer free poker money at Titan Poker. But you can only have one poker account at Titan poker, so it is obvious that you can only claim one of these free bonuses.
Ok, that is fair enough. But it gets more complicated than that. Some of these bankroll providers have other offers available at other online poker rooms, and some have only one offer available (the Titan one).
To make things worse, some of these bankroll providers that have multiple free poker money promotions available restrict how many of them you can claim. So taking the Titan Poker offer from a bankroll provider that has other offers might mean that you can’t claim the other offers.
So now you can see that it makes sense (and it pays!) to take your time and see all the offers that are available first before deciding which one to take. We have here our idea of the best way to approach the various no deposit poker bonuses.
Get $697.70 in No Deposit Poker Bonuses
We are going to start with the poker rooms that offer a no deposit sign up bonus directly. That is, you don’t have to go through a third party site to get the free money. Currently there are six of these poker room bonuses available – Poker770, PokerTime, 888Poker, Betfair Poker, Riva Poker and CoolHandPoker.
Five of these no deposit bonuses are available only directly from the poker room so we can claim these without worrying that it will affect us later on. These three are 888Poker ($8), Betfair ($10), Riva Poker ($5), CoolHandPoker ($8) and PokerTime ($5 + $20). The Poker770 direct offer is $7.70 for free but currently PokerStrategy has a free $50 at Poker770 so we will leave that one for now and choose which one to take later on.
Not every player will be eligible to claim all those bonuses due to country restrictions, but for those lucky players that are entitled to all of them, they will get a total of $36 for free up front plus have the opportunity to clear the extra $20 from PokerTime which brings the total free money so far to $56.
Next we are going to take the poker bankrolls from providers that have only one offer available, and that offer is not duplicated elsewhere.
The only such offer at this time is from CelebPokerMoney who are giving $9 for free at Celeb Poker with a pending bonus of $190 which you can earn from playing poker with the free $9.
Now we go to those providers with only one offer but where there are others that also provide a bankroll at that particular poker room. The only one such site offer is PokerNetOnline ($50). Their free bankroll is at Titan Poker. As we know, there are four Titan Poker bankrolls available. As it happens this is the best free bonus that is available at Titan, so we should choose to take this one.
All going well you should now have seven poker accounts and have received a total of $95 up front plus you should have cleared some or all of the extra bonuses totaling $310 bringing your free bankroll total to $405.
Now we get to the bankroll providers that have multiple offers available. So let’s find the unique offers amongst them. Starting with PokerSource, they have two bankrolls which no other provider has, Bodog ($25) and Winner ($25). The Winner Bankroll deal has an extra bonus of $50 which you can ear while the Bodog one has no extra bonus so you should choose the Winner deal if you can. They also have an offer at Party Poker and Titan. We should already have taken a deal at Titan Poker, and Party Poker is available elsewhere. One thing to note about PokerSource is that they allow their members to claim a free bankroll once every six months so if you have to you can come back to them in six months time.
Moving on to YourPokerCash, they have a deal available at Mansion Poker, Party Poker and Titan Poker. We should take the Mansion Poker deal here. The Mansion bankroll is for $20 plus a pending amount of $140.
If you do well with one bankroll YPC will allow you to claim another one later on.
All going well, by now you should have received $140 into nine new poker accounts and have cleared most of the $500 pending bonus cash for a total roll of $640.
The last provider with multiple rooms is PokerStrategy. You can only get one bankroll from them but you can choose from five different rooms to get it in. The current rooms are Everest Poker, Party Poker, Titan Poker, Poker770 and William Hill Poker. You should already have taken a Titan deal, and you can go back to PokerSoure for the Party deal in six months. The Poker770 deal is good, but you can get $7.70 directly from that room, so you really should choose between Everest Poker and William Hill here.
If the rooms available have suited you well, you could now go and claim the Poker770 bonus directly from that room too.
Adding the PokerStrategy bonus and the Poker770 direct bonus brings our total up to $697.70!
All going well you can go back to YPC and claim a second bankroll once you have finished your first one, and you have the option of going back to PokerSource in six months time for another bankroll there too.
