WSOP: 100% Match Bonus up to $1,000 - NJ & NV
The next best welcome bonus in the US, in the WSOP's 100% matched deposit bonus up to $1,000. Here are the details:
The amount of the Match Bonus will be 100% of the player’s Qualifying Deposit, up to a maximum of $1,000.
If a player’s Qualifying Deposit is greater than $1,000, he/she will be only eligible to receive up to $1,000 Match Bonus. players will need to earn 50 APPs for every $5 to be released.
No bonus funds are released for APPs earned that only partially fulfil an APP increment. Example: If a player deposits $63, the first $60 would be released $5chunks, with the $3 not being applied to the bonus as it does not fulfil the minimum $5 requirement.
Match Bonus funds are awarded to a player’s restricted bonus account, and may not be accessed nor will it be wagered at the time of grant, but rather are released into the player’s real-money bankroll incrementally as he/she accumulates Action Player Points (“APPs”).
