Bodog offers an excellent welcome bonus for new players that’s simple to collect. When you create your account and make your first deposit, Bodog will match it dollar-for-dollar, up to $1,000. Depending on the size, you might collect a few $500 freeroll tickets too.

Bodog credits the cash to your account in installments of $5. For every 150 Reward Points generated, you’ll get one installment.

Reward Points are earned by generating rake in different poker games:

You have 30 days to release the bonus in full, otherwise, any unreleased cash expires.

Remember to activate your bonus within the game client before you start playing.

In addition to the bonus, you also receive tickets to play in the Free 500, a free tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of $500.
