In times of financial hardship, like the times were are currently part of, there is nothing more welcome than free money!
Betfair Poker realises people love free cash so have increased their sign-up bonus for new players up to $500 regardless of how much you actually deposit. All you have to do is download the client, opt into the bonus and start playing.
You get 60 days from the first day you play a hand on Betfair Poker to sign-up for the poker bonus and once you opt in you have 60 days to earn as much of the $500 as you possibly can. The bonus releases in $10 increments for every 400 Betfair Points you earn at the cash and tournament tables.
The bonus will be paid into your Betfair account every Wednesday based on the amount of points earned in the previous week, as long as you have earned 400 or more during that time period.
A lot of sites brag about $600 or $1,000 sign-up bonuses but you have to deposit that amount and they match it, this is $500 absolutely free. Quite a useful way to add to your bankroll.
