I received a $25 no deposit bonus from BRM on party poker a year ago. After playing almost exclusively freeroll tounaments, my bankroll is now about $100. I never deposited any money, and almost never played any raked hands (about 25 partypoints worth maybe?).
My question is, can I withdraw any of this money, and if so how much? I suspect that at least the $25 no deposit bonus money cannot be withdrawn until I've generated some multiple of this in rake...?
I ask, because I might want to use it as a first deposit on another site (keeping my record clean of never spending any money on poker)...

Besides checking with their support in order to see if yo can withdraw or not you should know that in order to do a cash out you must deposit first.Thats typical in Party network and in most poker rooms

Probably you will need to deposit money before cash out. Most of poker rooms have a this requeriment for security reasons. I didn't have any problem cashing our from Everest but other rooms has this politic.

I'm pretty sure if you make a minimum deposit (and verify your account with ID) you'll be able to withdraw the lot, probably without raking any more. That would be my guess. But if you really want to know, just check with PP support.

You should check the terms of the no deposit bonus from bankroll mob for party poker. I'm fairly certain that buried deep in there somewhere, it'll mention that you have to clear a certain amount of rake before you can withdraw. Also I'm pretty sure you have to make a minimum deposit before you can withdraw, liuke jess said.
Probably better off just playing and building up. I doubt $100 will be a life changing amount, and you can end up building a nice size roll if you play well. Then you could be withdrawing 1k instead of $100, maybe buy your old lady something shiny, get some nooky.

Party Poker's freerolls suck. I'm very surprised you managed to win so much money in freerolls! What tournaments were you playing? As for withdrawing from PartyPoker without depositing first your only chance may be to withdraw to Bank directly. I think all other methods require a deposit first.

I believe you can withdraw everything except the amount of the NDB, but the best you have to do is going read the terms and conditions of the NDB you made. If you cant find any answer there, then go to Party Poker site and read their Terms and Conditions. Or, faster and easier, you can ask Online Suport. If they don’t tell you anything, you can always go directly to the withdraw page, try to withdraw and then you see what happens: if the transfer is done, nice, you don’t need anything else. If it’s not done, there must appear a window with the justification, sending you to a new window where you can read what do you have to do to be able to withdraw.

The BRM freerolls of course... (about $10 from the daily freerolls, and I finished 5th in the freeroll for the top 200 november leaderbord; and won $23.50).
Also I play the $250 freeroll at 24:00 CET, I got 2nd place once and won $20.77... The rest is small wins, a dollar here and there, reaching the final table a few times... And a lot of 11th places before the first time I made a final table
Does any other site have better freerolls? Can you recommend any?
------------ Thanks everybody for your comments and suggestions!
You may only withdraw any funds obtained via a Bonus from Your Account when You have wagered a sum equivalent to five times the Bonus amount and five times the deposit amount that led to the Bonus amount at odds of 2.0 or above.
I suspect that means I can withdraw everything except the initial $25...
Note: Anyone trying to play online poker without betting any of your own money, must beware of the "Inactive account fees"; if you haven't played any raked hands in 180 days, they bill you about $7 dollar. This happened to me a few months ago, but was able to get it back by emailing support. I enrolled in a $1 1-table tournament (which I won), to lift the inactive account fees.
Party poker I probably not happy with customers like me, but I think they are very fair in their terms so far...
