Loyalty & VIP: 

Poker Points

  • What are Poker Points? How do I earn Poker Points?
    Poker Points are used to obtain Poker bonuses and are collected automatically when playing with real money at bwin Poker. Your unused Poker bonuses are indicated in your account. Depending on the promotion, a specific number of Poker Points must be obtained in order to get the indicated real money bonus.
  • How do I obtain a Poker bonus?
    bwin Poker users are informed about bonus promotions by e-mail or through the Poker website on a regular basis. Once you receive a bonus code, you can redeem your bonus in your account. As soon as you have collected the required number of Poker Points, the bonus is automatically credited to your account.
  • How many Poker Points do I have? What happened to the previously indicated Poker Points?
    The Poker Point system is only used to process Poker bonuses. For this reason, no Poker Points are indicated in your account. If you have an unredeemed Poker bonus, then the number of Poker Points you require to obtain a bonus will be indicated in your account.
  • What happens if the bonus expires before I am able to obtain it?
    The bonus must be redeemed in the specified period, otherwise the bonus expires and the collected Poker Points are lost.
  • In which order are bonuses processed when I have several Poker bonuses in the account?
    The Poker bonuses are processed in the order in which you redeemed them for your account. This order cannot be changed. Once a bonus expires, the next bonus is processed.
  • How many Poker Points can I earn?
    There are two ways to earn Poker Points, you can get them from playing both Real Money Cash Games and Real Money Tournaments.
    • Hold'em, Omaha, 7 Card Stud, 5 Card Draw Cash Games:

      Poker Points are awarded based on the rake that you contribute to each pot. 3.25 Poker Points are awarded for every dollar you contribute in rake. Points are awarded in 0.01 steps, for example if you contribute $0.40 in rake, you will receive 1.3 Poker Points.

      You will get an amount of Poker Points that is proportional to your specific contribution to the pot. For example, total bets in a pot are $20 (note that uncalled bets will not be part of the pot size), of which you contributed $8. The rake for this pot would be $1, and your contribution would be 40% ($8/$20) of the pot. 3.25 Poker Points are awarded and you will get 3.25 * 0.40 = 1.3 Poker Points.

      Individual rake Poker Points Individual rake Poker Points
      0.10 0.325 1.6 5.2
      0.20 0.65 1.8 5.85

      1.2 3.9 2.8 9.1
      1.4 4.55 3 9.75
    • Tournaments:

      5 Poker Points are awarded for every paid dollar in entry fee (real money tournaments). For example, if you enter a $20+2 tournament, you will be awarded 5 * $2 = 10 points, if you enter a $5+$0.50 tournament, you will be awarded 5*$0.50 = 2.5 points. The points are awarded when the tournament finishes.

Currently there are running five of these every day, with a buy-in of $5+0.50. They run at 3:25, 5:25, 7:25, 9:25 and 11:25 PM ET.

Rake Structure

The rake is an amount of money taken by the house from all players as a payment to play at the table. This rule applies regardless of whether real money is used, to make the game more realistic. However, if there is no flop, or if fourth street in stud games is not reached, no rake will be taken from the pot (no flop no drop policy). Below you will find bwin Poker's rake structure. The structure is based on the stake level and the max rake is based on the number of players.

Fixed Limit

Pot size Rake taken per Pot
Lower than $0.50-1.00 $0.01 per $0.20
(Maximum rake: $0.50)
$0.50-1.00 to $2.00-$4.00 $0.05 per $1.00
