No free $10 for my birthday from 888 this year but I can get an extra free $10 if I deposit $10 with a code they gave me which is fine with me until I saw this:

Terms & Conditions
All 888poker Terms and Conditions apply.
The birthday bonus is only valid for 14 days from the date of sending.
The Birthday Bonus money can be cashed out only after an amount totaling forty (40) times the Bonus amount has been wagered by an entrant.
The bonus will be granted 24-72 hours after making a successful deposit


£400 for a wager seems quite steep especially for only $10 and when I will only be playing on 2NL tables. There seems to be no time limit though this time which means it is possible to clear.

I am wondering if I should do this or just deposit $10 and grind that instead of worrying whether I have cleared the wager or not. What do you guys think I should do out of the two choices I have?

I don't really know,
I'd say it is very hard to get $400 out of $10...
But it doesn't cost any money or something...
Altough you have to worry about it and keep watching and hoping to get the $400...
Conclusion: dunno
Thumbs Up

I think you can cash out your own money at any time, so take the bonus, and don't try and clear it, but if you do clear it it is a bonus

That is actually a good idea. If I could make a couple more $ off of it I could withdraw my own $10 then feel safer grinding, especially if I take your strict BRM route like you do. I'll try that I think.

Does losing the first $10 after getting the bonus mean that the bonus is gone and the $10 remaining means whatever I turn it into is still withdraw-able?

I reckon it is always withdraw-able, but I haven't got a lot of experience with 888

the $10 bonus will be the last thing to go im afraid. also, they may keep it as a bonus rather than give you the cash to clear, not 100% sure on that

Cheers yeah 888poker do take care of their players and that is why i play there when i am free and nothing much to do and yeah the terms looks vague so take the bonus and contact support to be more clear how much time limit there is on it. Otherwise you could end up losing the money you deposited. Anyway good luck, but i think you should deposit and play and not take the bonus, other places have better bonus that is worth your time instead of 888poker. Anyway good luck at the tables mate!

Guess i'll give the bonus a miss then and just deposit $6 for the $10 which is spare money I have. I'll see if there is any decent deposit bonus's first just to see but 888 have always been a bit rubbish with wagers regarding their bonus's. Funny how completely free money has an easy wager compared to when you deposit money and get a special bonus.

Thanks for everyone's replys and advice.

Make sure first that you can cash out the money, leaving in the bonus to play with.
In some cases in other sites if you withdraw, prior meeting the requirement for the bonus,
you are losing it.
