.435/100 pts for $2000 Bonus
Is there any other shortfall for the Ring Game Ticket other than the 7 day unused expiry?
You are right. At the moment the tickets are on sale( until the 18th) and are more valuable.
One disadvantaged is that at some point you would have to play short-stacked unless you are willing to drop a level or two.
The tickets also have some advantages.
- You will likely loose the ticket before collecting the points needed to release it. Most likely a lot sooner.
- You cannot loose money with a ticket. This is not case while clearing a cash bonus.
- You can use tickets while clearing a cash bonus.
