Deposit Bonuses

USA Poker Welcome Bonuses Bigger Than Ever

You may have heard already about Black Friday, the day three of the Internet’s top poker sites got taken down in the USA. But in the face of that, not only are some of the other USA poker sites keeping their tables and tourneys open to players in the US, but they’re offering some of their greatest welcome bonuses ever.

Of 9 poker sites still serving USA players, 5 of them are giving away welcome bonuses of $1,000 or more. The other 4 are offering maximums of at least $500. And 7 of these 9 first deposit bonuses are over 100%, meaning that get more back in bonus cash than you have to deposit in order to receive it. Three of these bonuses are 200%.

Playing Texas Holdem online is not as easy as it used to be for players living in the USA. But it’s not impossible. You just have to look past the big 3 major players that just got taken out of the game to find the smaller gems still in the game.

Full Tilt Satellites Some of the Best Ways to Play Poker Online

To say that satellites at Full Tilt Poker are abundant would be a vast understatement, with the site boasting so many satellite tournaments into both live big money land-based and online tournaments that there’s at least one running nearly every day of the year.

To win large prizes for a little investment when you play poker online satellites are the way to go. At online satellites you pay a small buy-in (and sometimes none at all) to get the chance to win a more costly seat in a tournament with a large cash prize.

At Full Tilt Poker, those opportunities range from satellites into WPT and WSOP events to Full Tilt’s own FTOPS and MiniFTOPS. The site also hosts satellites all week long into the Big Money Sundays trio of tournaments: the Sunday Brawl, the $750K Guarantee and the Sunday Mulligan.

Use the most current Full Tilt referral code when you sign up and you can get much of those satellite tournament buy-ins free in the form of bonus dollars.

Comparing Tournament Offerings Of Two Leading Online Poker Sites

Two of the top poker sites, particularly for players in Europe, are Titan Poker and Poker Stars. In choosing which of these sites at which to play, one factor worth taking a look at is their tournament offerings.

PokerStars real money tournaments include three kinds of Sit & Gos: Double or Nothing, Fifty50 and Steps tournaments. They also offer two types of Multi-Table Tournaments: Shootous and Heads-Up tournaments. But they don’t stop there, offering rebuys, bounties, knockouts and deep stack tournaments as well as short-handed tournaments with 4-max and 6-max tables and of course guaranteed tournaments with guaranteed cash prize pools. As well, PokerStars offers three types of turbo tournaments: regular Turbo, 2X-Turbo and Hyper-Turbo.

Titan Poker, meanwhile, also offers guaranteed tournaments and some of their Sit ‘n’ Go tournaments have progressive jackpots. Their schedule of regular tournaments includes daily tournaments, freerolls and VIP tournaments.

Both sites also offer satellites, of course, into major land-based tournaments.

In Online Poker & Online Casinos Both – The Bonus Code is Where it’s At

It doesn’t matter whether you’re interested in playing online poker or in playing at an online casino. Regardless, one of the best ways to make the most for your online gambling investment (not to mention one of the best ways to find out which places are the best to join) is to look at the bonuses they offer new players.

For example, right now with the Party Poker bonus code you can get a matching bonus of 100% of your initial deposit up to $500. That gives you $1,000 to start playing online poker with, for an investment of only $500.

Online casinos are the same way. The best online casinos, just as with the best online poker sites, are often those with the biggest welcome bonuses. Why is this? Because it shows players two things: 1) that a site has the funds to put its money where its mouth is, and 2) that the site is genuinely interested in rewarding players for choosing their site to join.

Finding Poker Sites Compatible With Linux Operating System

You hear a lot about which poker sites are Mac compatible but you don’t hear as much about poker sites compatible with Linux operating system. If you use the Linux operating system and enjoy online poker, then you already know how much of a challenge it can be to find sites to play at. Or perhaps you have both Windows and Linux, and while you prefer Linux, find yourself having to play online poker using Windows because you don’t know where to play that supports the Linux OS.

The fact is, poker software makers have yet to develop a poker client native to the Linux platform. But that does not mean you’re out of luck entirely. You could still play either no-download instant poker in Flash or Java, use a PC-emulator or play free, play money Linux poker games in preparation and practice for real money online poker games played on Windows.

Online Poker Satellite Tournaments Offer Bigger, Better Winnings

If you’re only playing online poker for the quick cash winnings from ring games and regular tournaments, you may be missing out on opportunities abounding for much larger winnings. There are many online poker sites with satellite tournaments that award free seats in live land-based tournament as their top prizes. And the top prizes in these live land-based tournaments are generally much higher than any prize pool in a standard online poker tournament or even the biggest in pot in most online poker cash games.

One of the biggest live poker events of every year is the coveted World Series of Poker with its $10,000 Main Event featuring a multi-million dollar prize pool. There are many online poker sites with satellite tournaments into the World Series of Poker, and in fact many of them have those very satellites running right now. In addition to those WSOP satellites, all year long the World Poker Tour makes stops around the world, and there are several online poker sites with satellite tournaments into these WPT events as well. And these are just two examples of many.

Help Decide Who Wins PokerStars Dream Job Australia And Win Big Yourself

PokerStars has selected the finalists for its 2010 DreamJob Australia promotion. There are 10 of them in all, including a 55-year-old mother of two, and you can see their photos and learn a little about each of them on the PokerStars site.

The next phase for each of these candidates is to win your votes to try and land them that dream job, a yearlong contract playing for PokerStars in the Australian New Zealand Poker Tour events. The way that you “vote” for a particular candidate is to register for the special satellite tournament that they are hosting, with 10 satellite tournaments in all, each one to be hosted by a different finalist. Voters may of course only vote for one candidate and therefore can only register for one satellite tournament. The candidate with most number of players registering for their tournament wins the DreamJob Australia. And you win the satisfaction of helping send them there (along with whatever prize money you cash out with from the candidate’s tournament).
