Bet365 Bonus Review and Comparison
Bet365 is a top online poker room targetting UK and European players and I thought it would be the perfect room to continue our look at other online poker bonuses and compare them with the Cake Poker bonus of 110% up to $600. Bet365 does not accept US residents, but for everyone from elsewhere in the world, this article could be very interesting.
Bet365 offers new players a solid 200% matching bonus up to $1000 on their initial deposit. It is important to note that you are not required to use a 2012 Bet365 bonus code when signing up to receive this bonus. The Bet365 bonus is placed in a pending bonus account and $10 of the bonus is released every time you earn an additional 1000 merit points.
In tournaments you receive 15 merit points per $1 in tournament fees and in cash games you can receive up to 11 merit points for raked hands. If we just look at tournament fees this equals out to you earning $0.15 of your bonus for every $1 that you pay in fees. This is much worse than the $0.42 of your bonus you earn for every dollar you spend at Cake Poker.
Bet365′s bonus expires after 60 days and any amount of the bonus that you have yet to clear at this point will be forfeit. Cake allows 90 days, which also takes the Cake in this category.
So Bet365 only wins in the matching percentage and total amount that you can earn, however those categories only matter if you plan to play a lot in the first 60 days in order to clear the entire bonus. If any amount of your bonus is not cleared then you basically should have played at Cake Poker instead.
This once again goes to prove that Cake Poker has a very solid first deposit bonus and all players who use Cake Poker sign up code SIGNUP600 will benefit from this fact for their first 90 days playing at Cake!
