How is the bonus paid?
The bonus will be released to your account in incremental amounts as you collect FPP's (frequent player points). Your bonus will be paid in $5 increments (or less if the last amount in your pending bonus is less than $5). The exact amount of FPP's you need to collect for your bonus will be displayed in the 'pending bonus' area in the Cashier Summary.
How do I collect FPP's at Cake Poker?
You will automatically be collecting FPP's (frequent player points) all the time you are playing for real money in a cash game (ring game) or tournament. FPP's are awarded based on how much rake or tournament fees you have paid.
- In cash games (ring games) you will be awarded 1 FPP per $1 in rake.
- In tournaments you will be paid 7 FPP's for every $1 paid in tournament fees.
The Cake Poker system is very accurate and counts cents towards FPP's as well. For example, if in a ring game a hand where you are dealt cards achieves a rake of $1.57 you will receive 1.57 FPP's, if you pay 50c in tournament fees you will receive 3.5 FPP's.
What else can I use my FPP's for?
Cake Poker runs a very good loyaly rewards program based on the FPP's you collect whilst playing on the site. Check out our Cake Poker Rewards section for more info.
How long does the bonus last?
There is a 90 day limit on this bonus. Don't worry if you don't achieve the full amount in the allotted time as the bonus is released incrementally into your account. You will be able to keep any bonus you have achieved by collecting FPP's up until the point when the promotional bonus period ends.
What about reload bonuses?
Cake Poker regularly offer reload bonuses and even if you are still collecting your initial registration or deposit bonus you will be able to 'stack' the bonuses. This means that you can reload using a special reload bonus code and once you have played through the requirements for the initial referral bonus you will automatically start collecting for the reload bonus as long as you have entered a current reload bonus code when you made your next deposit. Cake Poker are very good at letting players know when a reload bonus is available to check your email regularly for any special reload bonuses on offer.
