So I'm looking at their bonus, 110%. 10% is up front and the other 100% is awarded based on the amount of points you get, based on playing for a full 30 days before the bonus is released. I'm not planning on playing there at all past 30 days but if I like it that could change. Basically I want to know:

1. how smooth deposits/cashouts have been
2. how good their customer service is
3. If anyone's done this particular bonus, were there any catches they don't make obvious in advance. I'm thinking
4. Just noticed there are under 2k players. I know it's Saturday morning on the East coast (where I am) and that other places in the US are also early morning, but pokerstars has 81k. I'm looking to play low stakes ring games in the neighborhood of 5c/10c. Will I have a hard time multi-tabling (I'm thinking at least 6)?

I'm just considering putting $500 on there and hopefully cashing out in 30 days with $1050 + profit. I may not be able to get the full $500 but I figure most of the hands will be .25 points per hand, with some .1 and the rare .5 once in a while. Luckily if they charge a rake, I get points which equals money towards the bonus. $500 = 5000 points = 20k hands. Considering I've played over 30k hands so far this month at pokerstars, I don't see a problem as long as I can continue to multi-table there. Don't try to make too many plays, just play solid tight-aggressive poker, play to beat the rake. I'm assuming I can beat the bodog low-stakes games but I figure unless I lose $550 I'll be breaking even. Just wanted to see if I should go through with this. I don't want to put $500 on a site I know nothing about and then by some catch not be able to withdraw any of it by some technicality I didn't see and end up $500 in the hole. Thanks.

yes, you will have a prob multi-tabling 6 ring games at any level. Customer service seems to be very attentive and helpful with very quick response times. Haven't tried to withdraw yet and only play with their money so someone else will have to field the other 2 questions. I will say they give $2k away in freerolls everyday and usually have large overlays in their Guarrateed $ MTTs so site is a great place for those of us with small banks and/or just love MTTs.

1. I had no problems cashing out via paper check from bodog.
2. They have a phone number at least, and a real person answers it (I called yesterday to see what my balance was in January). I have not had any issues that would require extensive interaction with customer service, however.
3. I have not done this particular bonus, but the 10% upfront alone makes it worth while.
4. Don't know anything about bodog ring games, sorry.

My question isn't if I will have a problem, I currently do it at pokerstars. My question was are there enough people (tables) to do it.

Also I looked at their rake structure and apparently I'd have to play a lot more games than I thought, they're generous with the rake at low limit tables which although usually is a good thing is not if you're trying to clear a bonus that relies on rake. But either way, even $350 isn't bad for free (and I still keep profits).
