Realize the Value of Bodog Poker Points

Share this
They say value is the new ‘cool,’ and that makes Bodog Poker the coolest poker room in the industry!  Bodog offers fantastic value to all its players, with low buy-in tournaments, big event qualifiers, and freerolls. But perhaps one of the most unrealized values at Bodog is their Poker Points (PTS). Once you’ve piled up enough, you can use them to enter some of the biggest tournaments available; Bodog’s Sunday $100,000 Guaranteed, the World Series in Vegas and other live events. You can also use your poker points to enter and win prizes in Bodog Poker Points Tournaments, or you could convert them into cold, hard cash!

Your first 50 Poker Points will automatically be added to your player account when you create a screen name, which is part of your public identity at the tables. After that, building your points is up to you.

Earn points by playing in ring games when you have contributed to a raked pot, get 3 points for every $1.00 in fees paid for tournaments you enter (an entry of $50+$5 earns 15 points), or receive 1 point for every 60 minutes spent playing at real money tables (max of 500 points for playing time per calendar month). Points are not awarded for time spent at play money tables, freerolls, or if you are sitting out.

And now, for a limited time, if you earn 2,000 or more poker points in a month, Bodog will double your monthly total for you with a double points bonus! The bonus will be added to your account in a lump sum at the end of the month.

Those Poker Points sure can come in handy when you’re low on cash but really itching to play some poker. Use your stack to enter and win cash prizes in 30, 100, 400 and 1,000 Bodog Poker Point tournaments, special tournaments that allow point buy-ins and pay out eCash or Tournament Credits (T$). T$ can be used just like eCash for buy-ins to many of the scheduled tournaments that Bodog Poker offers.

With $500 to be won at the 30 Point tournaments, one T$29 payout for every 20 players entered in a 100 Point tournament, one T$100 payout for every 17 players entered in a 400 Points tournament and one T$270 payout for every 20 players entered in a 1,000 Point tournament, you can see that there is money to be won no matter how many points you have.

Each day at 10:40pmET, 30 points gets you into the PTS Freeroll, where the top finishers share in a $300 prize pool. On Sundays at 9:15am, 10:15am, and 11:15am ET, enter the $10K PTS Qualifier (Turbo) for 500 PTS. One player for every 15 entered will win T$109 that can be used to buy into the $10K Guaranteed at 2:00pmET on Sundays. Then on Sunday at 12:20pm ET and 2:20pm ET, 750 PTS secures your place in the $100K PTS Qualifier. One player for every 20 entered will win T$162 that can be used to buy into the Sunday $100K Guaranteed tournament.

On occasion, Bodog Poker hosts events that result in additional PTS buy-in tournaments, such as qualifiers for the World Poker Tour (WPT) or the World Series of Poker (WSOP). Just imagine, winning your seat at the biggest poker tournament of the year using no money!

Of course if you prefer, you can turn your poker points into cash. The exchange rate is 100 points for every $1.00 US. The minimum amount that can be exchanged is 500 points, and you can convert as often as you like up to 25,000 points per 30-day period.

Registering for a tournament is easy. Once you have downloaded Bodog Poker and created a screen name, select the “Scheduled Tournament” tab, choose the tournament you wish to enter, and then click “Register.” To convert your points to cash, log in to Bodog and select the “Account” tab. Then click on the “Points to Cash” tab, enter the desired “Amount to convert” and click the “Convert” button. It’s that simple. Start playing at Bodog Poker today and watch your bankroll grow!
