What is the player sign-up bonus?

Players receive a 100% sign up bonus up to an amazing $1,000.

Elite Benefit Program- Benefit Points

Playing in cash games and tournaments will earn players Benefit Points. Best of all, we use the Weighted Contributed Rake method to calculate their Benefit Points.

In WPN Affiliates brand tournaments, you will earn 5.5 Benefit Points for each $1 USD paid in tournament fees. For example, let’s say you are playing an online poker tournament that costs $10+1 to get into. $10 goes to the prize pool and $1 is the entry fee. The $10 in the tournament does not count for calculating your Benefit Points. For tournaments, we only look at the fee associated with the buy-in. In this example, that is $1, and as you are awarded 5.5 BPs for every $1 in fees paid, you will earn 5.5 BPs. What if the buy-in is less than $1? Don’t worry. You will earn fractional BPs, too. For example, in a real-money SnG with a $5+0.50 buy-in, you will earn 2.75 BPs (5.5 / 2 = 2.75 BPs).

In WPN Affiliates brand cash games, Benefit Points are awarded at a rate of 5.5 BPs for each $1 you contribute to the rake.
