New Welcome Bonus Options at bet365 Poker
January is the time for New Year’s resolutions for many people, and it seems that it’s no different even if you happen to be a mobile poker site. Today sees the launch of a brand new welcome bonus at what many may see as a pretty small and unassuming site, but one which is hoping that its new promotion for new customers will allow it to sit at the table with the big boys a little more in 2015.
I am talking, of course, about bet365 Poker, which – although a major player in the online and mobile casino and sports betting scene – still hasn’t quite managed to crack poker in quite the same way. While there were some recent improvements made to the company’s poker app, which made it faster and easier to navigate, the real news story coming out of bet365 is the improvements being made to the welcome bonus.
Out the window has gone the standard 150% welcome bonus we’re used to over at bet365, and is a brand new system which offers you three brand new deals to choose from. Yup, you don’t just get stuck with what the site wants you to have; you get to choose what deal you think best suits the way you play!
Standard Opening Offer
This is what you might call the vanilla welcome bonus. There’s few thrills, as all you have to really get excited about is a 100% bonus which will give you up to £100 in free cash. All you gotta do to claim is to deposit £10 or more during your first deposit, and whatever value you deposit will be doubled! This is a good option for people who want to see their money quickly, as you’ll only need to wager it over 20 times. You can play your cash on any game you see fit (and I’d highly recommend you make it poker.
Slots Only Opening Bonus
The name really says it all with this one. While the standard opening offer gives you the chance to play on any game, the slots only welcoming offer will double that offering, but require you to only play it on the slots that bet365 makes available to poker player. Yup, you can get a 200% bonus of up to £200, but your playing is restricted to slots. What’s more, you have to play through your cash 30 times to get hold of it through this method… best avoided if you ask me…
VIP Opening Bonus
This one is for those high rollers, and if you ask me, pretty bloody confident players out there. As always with the term VIP (at least when used in conjunction with online and mobile gambling) the word is a double sided sword. While you can land yourself a bonus of a whopping £500, that’s actually only going to be a 50% bonus, meaning you need to deposit an even more whopping £1,000 to qualify. You’ll need to wager through your cash at least 30 times, and your minimum deposit has to be at least £200 – which if you think about it, would actually make this offer worse than the standard one. So yeah, this is only really great news for those of you who are going to unload a grand at bet365.
Which to choose?
Well, that’s entirely up to you. My two cents on the matter is that you’re there to play poker, so why lock yourself into playing only slots? Moreover, choosing between the other two is really just a matter of the size of your bank balance. Whatever you end up choosing, I’ve do doubt bet365 have some great things planned for their Poker arm in the coming months, and will definitely be worth getting on board with now.
