Both options require you to use a third party eWallet, that is funded with Bitcoin already. If you choose to use the address, make sure to copy and paste the address instead of manually retyping.

Once you are done, submit your payment. Once the transaction is approved, your Sports balance will receive the deposit. You will need to transfer your balance from the Sports wallet to the Poker wallet. You will then be all set to begin entering Poker games or tournaments.

How to Earn Bonus Points
The term Bonus Points, Comp Points and VIP Points are used interchangeable at BetOnline Poker, but we will use the terms Bonus Point for this review.
When you play with real money from your account, you will earn Bonus Points. This includes “Rake Hands” and “Tournament Fees”.
To see your current Bonus Points, you will need to be on the BetOnline Poker web app or standalone client software. Here you will need to click on green “$” link in the top right corner. This will open up a pop-up that is combination of the Cashier and Account information. Here you will see different balances. For the Bonus Points, they will be at the “VIP points” section.
The percentage of the pot that goes to the house is called the “rake”. The amount you contribute to the rake is your “Rake Hand”. At BetOnline the rake is not taken prior to flop for Hold’em Poker or Omaha Poker. If the pot is not called, there will be no rake.
For every cent ($0.01) you contribute towards the rake, you will earn 1 Bonus Point. This money be from your real money balance, not bonus balance, for you to earn Bonus Points.
So if there is a $30 pot with three players in a Fixed limit game contributing $10 each. According to the rake schedule for Fixed Limit, your rake contribution will be $0.01 for every $0.18 that you contributed to pot, with a maximum rake of $2. Take the $10 you contributed to the pot and divide that by 0.18, then multiply this number by 0.01; this will give you a “Rake Hand” of $0.55, or 55 Bonus Points.
The pot rake for most of the game are from 5% to 5.55%. For Fixed Limit Games, the rake has a schedule of $0.01 per $0.20 contributed to the pot, with a maximum of $0.20 to $3 depending on the type of game. While for No Limit & Pot Limit Games, the rake has a schedule of $0.01 per $0.18 pot, with a maximum rake of $1 to $5 depending on the game.
When you enter a tournament, there will be tournament fee to play at the table. For every penny ($0.01) you pay in tournament fees, you will receive 1 Bonus Point. Your tournament fee must be paid from your real money balance to receive Bonus Point credits.
For example, if you enter a tournament with a $1 tournament fee, you will have 100 Comp Points credited to your account.
How this relates to the 100% Poker Welcome Bonus
When you claim the promo code NEWBOL for the 100% Poker Welcome Bonus, the bonus money will go into your bonus balance. To redeem the bonus balance for real money, it will be released into your increments of $5, for every 5000 Bonus Points you redeem.
