Everest Poker Bonus
Everest poker has recently moved from being an independent online poker site to a skin on the iPoker network due to the difficulties it was experiencing in a European poker market which was becoming increasingly compartmentalised. You can read more about this in our review of Everest Poker here.
Inasmuch as it is sad that the ring-fencing of poker players has made it financially unviable for Everest Poker to continue as an independent poker room, the move to the iPoker network has produced a number of benefits to players on Everest Poker – not least the new Everest Poker bonus.
The Bonus in a Nutshell
Everest Poker offers a 200% match poker bonus on all first deposits up to $1,000. This means that if you were to deposit $750, Everest Poker would add a further $1,500 to your account in increments of $2.50 as your earn “Summit Points” by contributing to the rake in cash games or by paying entry fees for sit n go games or multi table poker tournaments.
You have to collect 80 Summit Points for each $2.50 released into your account – Summit points being awarded at the rate of 8 per $1 raked – and have 60 days from the date of your first Everest Poker deposit in which to clear as much of the Everest Poker bonus as possible – if not all of it!
Clearing the Everest Bonus
By joining the iPoker network, players on Everest Poker now have access to “Speed Hold´em” – one of the fastest ways of playing poker and accumulating the Summit Points you will need to clear the Everest Poker bonus. However, on a site which is renowned for the loose standard of play, it could be in your best interests not to risk your bankroll by heading for the fast tables and taking a more relaxed approach to redeeming your Everest Poker bonus.
With a first deposit of for instance $750.00 (which is not the maximum), players will have sufficient funds to open up six $1.00/$2.00 6-Max NLHE tables. With an average pot value of $20.00 ($1.00 raked), and by participating in 20 or so hands an hour, players should be able to earn $15.00 in Everest Poker bonuses each hour – meaning that you would only have to play less than two hours a day to clear the $1,500.00 Everest Poker bonus.
Additional Benefits of Playing at Everest Poker
In addition to the first deposit Everest Poker bonus, players opening an account through any of the links on this page will gain access to two $2,000.00 first depositor freerolls, the Everest Poker VIP Summit Club (with additional rewards for the points collected in redeeming the Everest Poker bonus) and a number of potentially valuable promotions to increase the value of playing at Everest Poker.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of registering an account with Everest Poker is the soft level of competition you will find at the tables. Everest Poker already had a reputation for being one of the easiest online poker sites on the Internet and, when it joined the iPoker network, went straight into the “A” division – the division reserved for sites which had the highest level of “player liquidity” (net losing players). The players from Everest Poker expanded the existing pool of net losing players to such a degree that traffic on the network jumped 15% in the first week.
