The poker bonus news is always full of offers ranging from matching your first deposit to free tournaments but Paddy Power Poker appears to have the best of both worlds at the moment offering deposit matches, free money and tournaments. To start with Paddy Power is in the poker bonus news for offering $5 free simply for downloading the software and creating a nickname for playing. The money will be in your account within 36 hours and can be used for low stakes cash games or tournaments. Needless to say that there are restrictions on when you can withdraw cash but at least you get $5 worth of free play. Should you decide that Paddy Power Poker is for you then they will give you a bonus of 100% of your deposit up to $500. Be aware however that this online poker bonus will not appear in your account immediately as according to the poker bonus news it is only released in $5 increments and for each increment you must earn 334 power points. Power points are earned by playing online poker at the site and for every €1 rake in cash games you can earn 20 points so how quickly you can reach each section of the poker bonus will depend on what level of blinds you play and of course how frequently you play. Perhaps the most interesting part which is in the poker bonus news is the freerolls for new players at the online poker site. Each new online poker player will be given four tokens for the Monday night tournaments each of which has a prize fund of $250 and cash prizes are awarded to the top 75 each week. This could be a good time to join the online poker people at Paddy Power.
