The concept of poker deposit bonus is one that has caught on greatly in popularity in recent times, especially among online poker enthusiasts.
As the concept of poker deposit bonus becomes more and more popular, several meanings are getting attached to it – though for the most part, it is taken to refer to money which the various poker sites add to the accounts of the people who deposit money with them for poker playing purposes. This the poker sites do either to encourage more people to play poker with them, and also to attract new poker players to their sites, seeing that some of these online poker signup bonuses are paid to new players who deposit money into their poker accounts for the first time.
For the most part, the poker deposit bonus is quoted both as a percentage and a dollar amount. And for the poker deposit bonus to be attractive, it has to be outrageous. Something like a 20% poker deposit bonus, for instance, simply won’t wash with most people seeking to play poker – who on the most part tend to be highly ambitious people with big dreams and seeking to win ‘big-time’ and get the money to make their dreams come true. If they wanted modest returns, after all, they’d be in forex or in the stocks. Poker is for the big boys, who can take big risks and earn big bucks. So for most part, the minimum acceptable poker signup bonus is 100% – where a potential poker player who deposits something like $100 into their account gets another $100 to play with (to make $200) added by ‘the house’ into their online poker account. For the most part though, 200% seems to be the highest available poker signup bonus.
Take note though, as mentioned, that there tends to be an explicitly mentioned dollar amount cap to most (virtually all, in fact) of the poker signup bonuses. Some sites offering a poker deposit bonus will, for instance, state that that they are giving a 100% or a 110% percent bonus, but quickly add a rejoinder that they are doing so only up to $100, $200 and so on, with very few (if any) going anywhere above $500 on the maximum side.
