Note! If you already have an 888poker account, you will not be able to receive a no deposit bonus, even if you have not received it before. It is intended only for those who transfer money to the room for the first time. Combating multi-accounting is a top security priority. For such a violation, all of your accounts will be blocked. Registration is only possible once.

How to withdraw bonus money from the account

Before making a cashout (that is, withdrawing funds from the poker room), you will need to fulfill several conditions.
1. Confirm your identity and place of residence . To do this, after registration, you will need to upload scans or photos of an identity document (for example, a passport) and a document confirming registration (for example, a bank statement).
2. Make a deposit for any amount (minimum possible) . This is necessary for this, in order to fix the method of replenishment and withdrawal of money in the room. After that, the cashout option will become available in the same way. For example, if you deposit $10 with Skrill, then you can make cashouts to the same account.
3. Win back all bonus money. You will not be able to withdraw bonus dollars (be it a no deposit offer or a first deposit bonus) until you wager them – that is, you pay enough rake to realize your bonus in full. You can track this progress in the client in the My Rewards section (the screenshot shows how to find it).

After fulfilling these conditions, you will be able to withdraw money at any time using one of the methods that you previously used.
