Re: beast points per hand thread

So if I play 2000 hands @ 50nl a day how many beast points would I earn. And how many player points would that get me? And if I have a rakeback deal does that change either?

700-750 beast points if you're playing mostly 6max is a ball park ish figure.

Deposit bonuses

Is it pointless to deposit for a bonus when you get rakeback because they deduct it from your rakeback? I didn't realize that when I made my last deposit in order to qualify for a bonus. Curious for future reload bonus promotions.

Re: Deposit bonuses

what if you do not get rakeback but instead VIP, does a deposit bonus hurt you in any way?

Elite Benefits Program breakdown

I am trying to figure out whether to stay with my RB or switch over to the elite program. I've been playing a decent amount of volume (been near the top of the SNC leaderboard since I started a couple weeks back) and don't know if giving up 27% RB is smart.

Has anyone broken down the elite program? I am trying to, but without understanding what combat points get me it is difficult since I don't have access to the store. If anyone has the knowledge of what each level breaks down to roughly in terms of RB% that would be awesome!

Re: Elite Benefits Program breakdown

You need to rake 18.4k to get more than 27% rb if taking cash instead of TBs, but if you're sng grinding you could take TBs and get a tad more than 27% after 2k+ raked. I'd stay on rakeback for ease of understanding and no volume commitments as you only stand to benefit a few % for massive volume commitments.

Re: Deposit bonuses

You cant double dip rakeback and reload bonuses, but it isnt all bad. The way I read it, you dont lose $1 of rakeback for every $1 of bonus you redeem, you only lose $0.27, so in actuality you only get a 73% reload bonus instead of the 100% they are advertising. If you are on the VIP program, I dont think it effects anything.

The bigger problem with the deposit bonuses is that they are damn near impossible to clear. A $5 sng player would need to play 15 9 man turbos to clear $1 of bonus. So to clear a $100 reload bonus he would have to play 1500 in 60 days. Is that even possible without grinding 12+ hours a day everyday?

Re: Deposit bonuses

this seems very very misleading though, because they don't say anything about this on their promotions page where they advertise the reload bonus. so if I did the math right the 23% reload bonus is only about 16-17%?

It is mentioned on the rakeback page

Re: Deposit bonuses

Ok. So basically seeing as I have 35% there is no point in me taking a dime of my $2,000 deposit bonus?

Why not? If you cleared the whole thing, you would essentially be getting 100% rakeback for that $2000

Not even close. Everytime you realease a bonus payment it is deducted from your rakeback payment. So it ointless to redeem.

Re: Deposit bonuses

Pretty sure it works much the same as it did on FTP pre black friday. It is still benefitial to take a bonus w/ rakeback even with the deductions.

According to the rakeback page the bonus money is deducted before any payments are made so in essence you would be getting an advance on your rakeback at 100%

Re: clearing bonus, incorrect point tallies

This same thing keeps happening to me; my point tallies are not correct, though support keeps insisting there is no problem. May I also PM you my username, WPN Rep?

+1. Feels like I should be getting more considering the stakes and volume I put in.

Are you trying to clear the $1000 welcome bonus?

How many tables/stakes and hours do you put in a day? How many points do you get?

How long do you estimate it will take you to get the full amount?

Thanks

I wanted to sign up at WPN to take advantage of the $1000 bonus. I was under the impression that it would release into your account dollar by dollar , is this not true?

Those of you trying to get the bonus , how much playing do you guys do

Thanks

Re: Deposit bonuses

Found the answer in an old post

No, it's just calculating less rakeback when you're clearing bonuses.

So like you're getting you're 20% or w.e. back on the bonus, you're only getting Rakeback on the 80 you're still paying. So if you paid 100 in rake, you'd usually get 27 dollars back. With a Bonus you'd get 100*.2= $20 (from the bonus) plus 80*.27 = 21.6 (from rakeback) so a total of 41.6 dollars.

You need 27.5k BPs to clear. I've around 24k in two months. So about $900 cleared. I play around 30 hours a week mistakes Husng and Mtts. Prob can clear it in 2.5 months but sadly they only give us 2

Are you getting the right AP for the MTTs? I've paid something like $12.50 in tourney fees in the past week and gotten only about 6 APs, though I have gotten the 68.75 BPs. Do APs and BPs accumulate at different rates? (assuming no multiplier)

I've been told 1AP=1BP by live support.
