December, 2013 -If you have read our PokerView Download page, you will know that the poker download process is quick and easy, and that the PokerView Bonus Code “POKERVIEWBONUS” should be entered when you make your first deposit to take advantage of a 150% PokerView Bonus on first deposits.
There are plenty of other good reasons for registering an account with PokerView, and these can be found in our PokerView Review and RakeBack pages, but the headline attraction for playing on the site is the PokerView Bonus. So how easy is it to redeem?
Use the PokerView bonus code when you signup or make your first deposit, in order to get yourself a bonus of 150% up to $750. Besides from that you will also get some nice extra, like a free webcam in case you would need one.
The PokerView Bonus is redeemed by collecting “PokerView Player Points” (PPPs) which are awarded at a rate of 10 PPPs per dollar contributed to the rake in a cash game or paid in tournament entry fees. A $5.00 increment of the PokerView Bonus is paid into a player´s account each time they collect 375 PPPs – an effective rakeback rate of 13% (more about effective rakeback rates on our PokerView RakeBack page).
If you have entered the PokerView Bonus Code “POKERVIEWBONUS” and deposited $500.00 in order to qualify for the full PokerView Bonus of $750.00, you will need to earn a total of 56,250 PPPs. It sounds like a tall order, but you have 120 days from the date on which you made your first PokerView deposit in order to collect those points and, as are examples show below, it is much simpler than it may at first appear.
In the examples below, we are going to assume that a player has deposited $500.00 using Bonus Code “POKERVIEWBONUS” to qualify for an extra $750.00 bonus and follow standard bankroll management. Therefore, starting with a bankroll of $500.00, the player should be headed straight to the 100/200 NL tables ($1.00/$2.00).
Even during the quietest times of the day there will be several short-handed tables and a couple of full ring $1.00/$2.00 tables to join, as well as the option of Heads-Up depending on your level of skill and aggression. Most of the cash tables on PokerView have a table limit of 100 big blinds, so with a $500.00 bankroll you should be able to open up two tables each with the maximum buy-in of $200.00.
As a rule of thumb, most players get involved in about 20% of hands, so on a table which is playing 50 rakeable hands an hour with an average pot of $40.00 (rake = $2.00), you would be contributing $10.00 to the rake (win or lose) and receiving 100 PPPs per table per hour. Within two hours, you would have collected sufficient PPPs for the first $5.00 increment of your PokerView Bonus to be released into your account.
You could just carry on playing like this for four hours a day and the full PokerView Bonus would be released within 68 days. However, if you are a breakeven player, your bankroll will be increasing by these $5.00 increments enabling you to open a third, fourth and fifth table and accelerating the speed at which you are collecting PPPs and redeeming your PokerView Bonus.
Redeeming your PokerView Bonus if you are a multi table tournament player is a little harder due to the relatively low volume of poker tournaments with a high buy-in. Following standard bankroll management, you should start to redeem your PokerView Bonus by competing in poker tournaments with a $25.00 buy-in. Although there are plenty of $20.00 + $2.00 tournaments running in a day, they are fairly evenly spaced out, so if you bust out of one early you may have to wait a little time before another starts.
For this reason, we are going to focus on the $20.00 + $1.60 Double or Nothing 6-Max Sit and Go tournaments which are starting each time 6 players are registered and which can be played alongside any larger scale tournaments you are competing in at the same time. These “mini” tournaments are regularly concluded within 30 minutes, and it is easily possible to manage four at a time thus paying $12.80 in tournament entry fees in each hour and earning 128 PPs – a quarter more than could be earned on a cash ring table in our example and without so much risk of variance.
As with our cash game example, as your bankroll increases, so you can enter more valuable games – PokerView hosts a daily $25,000 Hi-Rollers tournament plus a weekly $100,000 feature game for which the qualifiers are regularly undersubscribed. Indeed, undersubscribed guaranteed tournaments among the higher buy-ins are very much a feature of PokerView, with those that are re-buy/add-on often populated by loose players willing to take a chance and pay the extra buy-in(s) when they bust early.
The PokerView Bonus is amongst the easiest to convert in the industry – requiring just a few hours play each day within the extended qualifying period to convert the full $750.00 bonus (Remember you must use the PokerView Bonus Code “POKERVIEWBONUS” to receive the full benefits listed on this web site).
Once you consider that the PokerView RakeBack also ploughs money into your account every day, it is possible to accelerating the clearing requirements much faster than indicated above, or play for fewer hours each day - or even take a day off!
