A poker bonus is an amount of money that is deposited into your online account when you sign up on a website to play. This amount varies according to the website and some websites don’t offer any at all. Some sites will match the amount that you deposit of your own money, and some match to half of it. When a website does offer them, it is fairly noticeable as they are usually clearly advertised on the site. Many times they are offered for a number of games on that site as well.
These bonuses are real and they are not scams to get you to play. You can clear this bonus simply by choosing the game that you want to play that the bonus covers. Read the rules of the game first because there are sites that have you play a number of raked hands before being able to use the bonus. Tournaments may be offered at various sites as well where you can earn these bonuses. If you are a new player and don’t fully understand the rules of the sites, check out the link on each site to the rules and read them carefully before you start playing to avoid any misunderstandings.
