Managing your bonus.
Bonuses are managed from the Bonuses section of the Rewards tab inside the Black Chip Poker software. You’ll be able to see the expiration date, amount released, and amount pending for every single bonus you’ve taken advantage of.
Choosing your bonus.
With Black Chip Poker it’s possible that you’ll have more than one bonus code tied to your account. With our new Bonus System, you can actually choose which bonus you’d like to work toward releasing first, simply click on the one you want to release and then draft it to the first position.
Earning Award Points.
Just play at our real-money tables and you will be earning Award Points.
You will earn 5.5 Award Points for each $1 USD paid in tournament fees. For example, let’s say you are playing an online poker tournament that costs $20+2 to get into. $20 goes to the prize pool and $2 is the entry fee, for tournaments, we only look at the fee associated with the buy-in. In this example, that is $2, and as you are awarded 5.5 APs for every $1 in fees paid, you will earn 11Aps ($2 x 5.5 = 11 APs). What if the buy-in is less than $1? Don’t worry. You will earn fractional APs, too.
IN CASH GAMES
As we use the Weighted Contributed Rake methodology to calculate your points, you will earn Award Points for playing (contributing), but also for how much (weighted) you contribute to the pot on each hand.
Award Points are awarded at a rate of 5.5 APs for each $1 in rake generated
1. At a 6 max table, everybody folds except for 3 players (A, B and C) who see the flop, each paying $10 pre-flop.
2.Player A goes all-in on the flop for another $50. B folds and C calls the $50. The total pot size is now $130. At the end of the hand $3 rake gets taken from the pot.
3.When using the Weighted Contributed method, this would mean that only the three participating players will receive Award Points as follows:
- Player A receives 6.875 APs
- Player B receives 2.75 APs
- Placer C receives 6.875 APs
