Deposit bonus...

I took advantage of the borgatapoker 600 initial deposit 100% match deal.. but now after 3 days of putting in around 5hrs a day playing 5 6handed tables at a time.. realizing how impossible this is going to be...

Almost feels like a scam, needing to reach 1200 points for 10% release.. meaning would need to make 12k points for all of it... with a deadline of 45 days i think it was...

Just inquiring on if anyone has been able to make a dent into that bonus release...

Yeah 10% back on a first deposit isn't a very enticing bonus really.

Yeah, I did some calculations to figure out that it would be pretty hard to release even $200 of it.

And I'm having trouble playing more than a few tables because I don't see a time bank button and my hand gets mucked in 20 seconds. Is that normal?

Re: Deposit bonus...

I am going to make it pretty easily playing SNGs so it is possible. I am around 20th on the leaderboard so that means only around 30 people will be able to complete the bonus, and that definitely sucks. Kicking it to 90 days would definitely be a fairer option. With that said, the average reload I have been clearing in the last year cleared at 6.67%, even slower than this one, so calling this a scam is hardly called for. This just adds another 10% to your rakeback, if you had read the details you could have got a more manageable bonus.

Re: Deposit bonus...

Not really saying its a scam since it was in the fine print from the start, but just saying they are throwing a bonus out there that 95% of the players probably wont reach... I'm at 5 tables per day (6max) roughly 3-5hrs per day, for 3 days and i'm only sitting at around 400 points... lol just disapointed on how much longer this is taking then expected is all.. just throwing my 2cents out there, and seeing if there was a better way to do it.

I've done that and my cards are auto-mucked. I don't even get a chance to hit a time bank button even if one popped up. Do you get a time bank on both Party and Borgata?

Like the other guy said, the time bank starts automatically once you hit zero.

You may have to go to Options > MultiTabling > "table pops up in front at action". It will refocus the table to you once you hit the end of the initial short time bank.
