The Betsafe Poker Bonus

You may never have heard of Betsafe. But it's a big player in Scandinavia and offers the biggest bonus available today. Let's take a look...

First thing we notice here is that it has the most generous amount of return for the rake out of all of the sites. But wait, it only pays your bonus back to your in one big increment, and you only have 43 days in which to clear it. This means that attempting such a big bonus is a big risk. If you clear it on day 44 (not day 43) then you get ZERO. Now, Betsafe also have a safer 70 day bonus option that pays $1000. Let's have a look at that one:

This one is a lot safer - you have 70 days to make the bonus. And you actually get a more generous percentage of rake back in the form of bonus money. The cash back is a smaller percentage of the bonus, however.

So how long will it take me?

OK, with a bank roll of $500 we'll be playing the $10+1 Sit N Goes. That's $1 of rake for every tournament played and we can do around 40 in a hour using the strategies outlined in my book BonusHunter. So to clear $2222 in rake we'll need to play for around 55 hours. So 70 days should be quite enough. You'll earn a total of $1444.44 for your 55 hours work.

So maybe go for the $1000 bonus then?

Well, yes and no. It all depends on whether you're sure you can put in the 87 hours required to earn the big boys bonus. If you can, then you're almost doubling your hourly rate. Of course, there's another option. Deposit $1000, play the $20+$2 Sit N Goes but request the smaller $1000 bonus. Then you can earn more rake and clear in the bonus in around 28 hours. Then your hourly rate will be $52 an hour - the best of them all. Click the button below to take a good look at your options.
