Poker Bonus, Marketing, and Referral Codes

I will be updating this blog soon with another newer version of the bankroll building guide.

Until that is up I wanted to list a couple of good bonus code resources and marketing referral code resources.

Here are two spots for the best marketing code for PokerStars or PokerStars.com bonus code

Here is a good spot for a referral code for Full Tilt Poker or a Full Tilt Poker bonus code

All of the above sites are good for marketing and referral bonus codes for sites that accept US players. For sites that do not allow for US players please try some of the bonus codes below.

Bonus codes for Partypoker.com can be found by clicking the previous link. There are also PartyCasino.com bonus codes and Partybets.com bonus codes.

Welcome to the Ultimate Bankroll Building Guide

This a great way for both relatively newbies and experienced players to build a bankroll. Many of the online poker sites offer bonuses to new players, and here you will find the best way to take advantage of these great bonuses. Many players start off depending solely on winning to increase their bankrolls. Why not keep your winnings and make some bonus money as well? I will guide you through the process step by step, site by site. With the current explosion of online and offline poker, now is the time to hop on in and make some money. In theory, you could start with as little as $20, but I would suggest $200 so that you are more likely to be able to succeed. You could play your best poker and still lose a couple of hands, and your $20 could be gone very quickly.

If you do not want to go the bonus route, I would highly suggest skipping to the last step and playing at Party Poker, as it is the best site with the best promos. That being said, it is definitely in your best interest to take advantage of all the bonuses on all the sites listed.

The first thing you need to do is open a Neteller account. Neteller will serve as your online bank that you will use to fund your poker accounts, and to cash out your winnings and bonus money. So, the first thing you need to do is open a Neteller account and fund it with $200. It is extremely easy to fund with your regular bank account.

Please bookmark this page, as it will take you a week or two to clear of the bonuses. Also, feel free to email the link to any of your friends that play poker. They will definitely thank you for it later.

When you are finished, you will have turned your $200 into over $1000 just by breaking EVEN playing poker. If you win money then great, you might even have a couple of grand. It is very rewarding to be able to break even, but still win! Good luck and please email at bbsbombers@yahoo.com with any questions that you may have along the way.

First Stop- Gaming Club Poker

The Gaming Club is the first stop because it offers the biggest bonus on your play. You can get a $300 bonus on your initial deposit, regardless of the size of the deposit. I would suggest using $200, though their minimum deposit is $20. Why should you deposit more than $20 then? Simply because you have to play poker to clear the bonus, and by just depositing $20 you are running a very high risk of not having enough to play for awhile. You can play your best poker and still lose sometimes, and $20 just does not give you much margin for error. But hey, it is your money, do as you wish :). Just click here and sign up to play. There is no bonus code needed. The bonus is dispersed into your account in $20 increments as you earn BRPs. BRPs are awarded to your account each time you play a hand. All you gotta do is play poker, and the bonus will be credited to your account. Please note that you will only be able to clear $80 of this bonus at the $.50- $1.00 and $1-$2 levels. The rest must be cleared at $2-$4 and higher. So, if you like playing low stakes, clear $80 of the bonus and come back and clear the rest later when your bankroll is bigger and you have some more experience under your belt. Again, click here to get started.

Second Stop - Pacific Poker

Pacific Poker offers a 25% bonus on your first deposit, max bonus of $100. Deposit $400 to get the max bonus at Pacific. Just click here and sign up, there is no need to put in a bonus code. Pacific Poker has the softest games on the net, bar none. Their software is not the greatest, and you can only play one table at a time. Clear your bonus and move on.

Next Stop - Pokerroom

Next stop is Pokerroom. The bonus here is 20% on your deposit, max bonus of $100. Deposit $500 to take advantage of the full bonus. Pokerroom is a pretty cool site for a number of reasons. The first being that you do not have to download any software to play. This means that you can even play a few hands and clear the bonus from work ;). Pokerroom also has some good promos including daily freerolls, the royal money promo, and the chance at becoming a staked pro for year. Click here to sign up and play. Clear the bonus and move on to the next stop. There is no need to put in a sign up bonus code here, just click on the link.

Next to Last Stop- Absolute Poker

Absolute has one of the biggest bonuses out there. You can get a 35% bonus on your first deposit, max bonus of $210. You will need to deposit $600 in order to get the full bonus, however you can deposit less if you like you just will not get the full bonus. Click here to go to Absolute, and when you sign up make sure that you use the code AP35 in order to get the bonus. Absolute is not one of my favorite places to play because I do not care much for the software. However, I would certainly suggest clearing the bonus because $210 is just too much to pass up. The cashouts are quick, so I would suggest clearing the bonus and moving on.

(NOTE: Absolute has amended their bonus terms. You can now get more bonus money! You can get a 35% bonus up to $350, and also an additional 15% max $150 for using Neteller as your deposit method. So to get the max bonus deposit $1000 and you can get a $500 bonus. $350 will be automatically credited to your bonus account, and to get the extra $150 for using Neteller you will need to email support)

Final Destination- Party Poker

There is a simple reason that I have left Party Poker for last. It is in my opinion the best of the best of all the sites, and it is the one where I play regularly. Click here to go the website. When signing up use the sign up bonus code CARDBONUS and you will get 20% added to your first deposit. The maximum bonus that you can get is $100, so I would suggest to make sure that you deposit $500 so that you will get the full $100 bonus.

Why do I like Party Poker the best? First and foremost the competition is terrible, thus making it very easy to win money on this site. Pacific is the only site that rivals Party in terms of bad players, but Pacific does not allow you to play on more than 1 table at a time. Party also has some great promotions that they run all the time. They have a new Party Points system in which you can use your points for different tournaments. These tournaments that you use your party points in have cash prizes up to $10,000 and they also run a Party Points tourney in which you can win a free seat to the $10,000 buy in Main Event at The World Series of Poker. You can also use your Party Points to get some cool merchandise. Party Poker also runs a couple of daily freerolls that are free to enter as long as you have a real money account. In addition to all this, you will also get an entry into a $5,000 freeroll tournament with your first deposit!

Please remember to use the sign up bonus code CARDBONUS to make sure that you will benefit from all of these great promotions. I hope you enjoy all of these promos as much as I do, it is far and away my favorite place to play.

If you have trouble downloading the software, or it gives you an error message, please email me at bbsbombers@yahoo.com and I will help you out. I will even create the account for you if need be.
