No deposit bonus
888 has a $20 no deposit bonus. The bonus consists of $4 in “money bonus”, 6 Tournament Tickets with a value of $1 each and $10 free play for selected casino games on 888casino.
The $4 can be used on 888poker.com and 888casino.com. The $1 tournament tickets can be used to play SNGs or MTTs.
To get the no deposit bonus, just download the poker software and create an account, but note that all three aspects of the no deposit bonus must be used within 7 days from being credited to a players account. According to the terms of the promotion, “Any unused free play, cash and Tournament Tickets granted under this Promotion shall expire 7 days after being credited to a player’s account and shall be removed from the players account following the expiration of such time period.”
Deposit match bonus: 100% up to $1500, 90 days to clear.
888’s deposit match bonus is a biggy—100% of your deposit up to $1500. It releases in blocks of $10, and you have 90 days to clear it.
The downside is that this bonus takes a lot of work to clear—you need to rake $50 to release every $10 chunk of bonus. The get through the full $1500 bonus, you’ll need to grind more than $83 in rake every day for three months to release it all!
The good news is that you’ll also be working your way up the VIP tiers as you go!
888’s program is one of the best VIP programs in New Jersey. Everyone starts off at 5% cash-back, 15% is achievable for many players and the top level provides 35% cash-back.
How it works: At 888, as you play poker and casino games you earn Status Points. In poker, you earn 2 SPs for every dollar attributed in rake. Status Points, as the name would suggest, track your progress through VIP Status Tiers.
You also earn Rewards Points, and the higher your status, the quicker you accumulate them. Rewards Points can be converted instantly into real dollars at a rate of 1RP=1c, but redemption of Reward Points for cash must be done in 100-point units.
Every month 888 puts on freerolls with up to $10,000 in guaranteed prizes just for its Rewards Members! The freerolls run daily, weekly, and monthly.
Move up the status tiers and gain access to regular freerolls.
All players get access to a $50 Daily Freeroll. For players who reach Iron, there’s a $375 every Friday. Go up a tier to Bronze, and you also get to enter a $1000 freeroll every Saturday. And max out at Silver+ with a monthly $3000 freeroll, scheduled on the last Saturday of each month.
