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 compartmentalized. 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 €750. This means that if you were to deposit €750, you would be eligible for a bonus of €1,500. The bonus is cleared by earning “Summit Points” when you contribute to a cash game pot, or pay a fee to enter an Everest Poker Sit & Go game (SNG) or Multi Table Tournament (MTT).
The Everest Poker bonus is designed so that players start receiving their bonus at a far quicker rate. Summit Points are awarded at the rate of 10 for each €uro paid in rake or SNG/MTT entry fees, and for the first €5.00 of the bonus, €0.50 is credited to your account for each 5 Summit Points you collect – equivalent to 100% rakeback.
The next €15.00 of the Everest Poker bonus is credited to your account in increments of €0.50 for each 10 Summit Points you collect, with the remainder of the bonus being released in increments of €0.50 for every 20 Summit points you collect. Players have sixty days in which to clear as much of the Everest Poker bonus as possible – if not all of it!
Other Benefits in the Everest Poker Welcome Package
In addition to the generous Everest Poker bonus, new players also receive €10.00 in free cash game and tournament tokens, one token into a €2,000 freeroll tournament and 20 Reward Points. Reward Points are the currency into which Summit Points are exchanged for the purposes of Everest Poker´s VIP Rewards program, and they can be used to enter valuable poker tournaments or exchanged for cash.
Possibly of more value to experienced players is the Shasta Sit & Go promotion, which is free to enter for new players for the first 90 days. The Shasta Sit & Go promotion is a six-level “Steps” program which starts at freeroll level (for new players – limited to four games per hour). Players who win or come second in each Shasta Sit & Go game receive tickets to enter the next level.
The top three players in a Level 6 Shasta Sit & Go game each win tokens (€15.00/€10.00/€5.00) that can be used to enter MTTs on Everest Poker. Consequently, you could start your Everest Poker experience playing for free and, within a few hours, have an entry to a tournaments with several thousand €uros in prize money. That´s what we call an Everest Poker bonus!
