Hey guys!

Are any of you guys familiar with the gold tokens on 888 poker? I have over 900 now and Im wondering what's the best thing I could buy with it... I could get 3x3$ ticket and 1$ ticket for 900 points. And if I wait till I get 1000 tokens then I could get a 10$ bonus but I'm not sure what this bonus really is because I can't click on it. Anybody knows?

10$ is an instant bonus into your account.

you can also buy 9 times a $1 bonus that also gets immediatly in your account.

ops...before mistaken. its no pending bonus or something... you get money Blink

Dont know but i think thats best way to spend yours gold token is to buy ticket bundle 5$+1$ for 500 coins so for 1000 gold token you will get 12$ for tournaments...
Maybe they have some beter deal dont know it Smile

take $ 10 is the most reliable option ... and then you can play other games and increase the win tickets .... it is not very reliable especially in plays 888 there are too many people

I really don't like the word bonus you better read T & C before going with that. I know that casino bonus are restricted. you can't win more than the amount of the bonus. Don't know if it is the same for poker.

IMO you are better with tickets however again read T & C. Good luck with the choice you will make. Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

Yes that's exactly what I was thinking Pinotte, the word "bonus" usually comes with strings attached... like a playthrough requirement. Unfortunately I can't read the T & C unless I have enough gold tokens to actually buy it.. So I was leaning towards getting tickets.

Ivanjkp --> Yeah thanks for pointing that out, it's odd that having more tokens doesn't really give you better deals. I thought the 900 or 1000 points deals would be the best. Anybody tried the "instant cash" deal at the bottom? It says convert your gold token into real cash...

best bet would be to ask on 888 forums, the regs could answer all theses questions for you

Yeah, I asked on two plus two forum and it seems Ivan was right, best deal is the 5$ + 1$ tickets for 500 gold tokens.

"Originally Posted by TheMachineQc
So the last option at the bottom, the convert tokens to cash thing is bad too?"

Here's the answer I got, and it makes perfect sense:

"It depends on the extent of your fear of variance.

Ticket bundles (2x$6=$12 per 1000 tokens) are 1.2 times more lucrative than exchange for cash ($10 per 1000 tokens), so bar the variance, even if you have a -15% ROI in tourneys, you're still better off buying tickets."

Since you want to play and not cash out, the tickets look better indeed.
You will have more tickets to try your luck and win something.
And once won, the money will be in your pocket, while you are not sure if the cash
from the points,can be cashed out due to restrictions or not.

@TheMachineQC

i took all gold tokens and cashed out. so i guess there is no restriction or play through requirements. actually the gold tokens is like cashback/rakeback imo.

the only explanation that i had no trouble could be, that i collected enough points long ago..
but if your fine with TT then all good Smile

Today I decided to buy a ticket for 10 gold coins .... and of course everything went as I thought ... the loss in the early stages of the tournament and my all exalts hatred 888 ... there are still a couple of tickets ... It is necessary to quickly lose their and forget about the poker

If there is no play through requirement for the cash you get from the tokens like
teddy says, that is an option too.
But with the amount of tickets you can get and a bit of luck you can win more than that.
All you need is just one good finish.

I think the $10 Bonus was the best Points to cash changing. You can also buy $1 tickets, but it was also ok to take the bonus directly. So you can choose between your favorite games and not only between sng´s and tourneys.
