Stars & 888 IMO for bonuses/rewards[emoji4]

Stars has a great first deposit bonus giving you lots of $1 Spin & Go Tickets to play (you’ll have to look on their site to see I think I received 15-25 tickets) and a $10 Spin & Go ticket.

888 has a Club Rewards system where you Level Up your account and are eligible for freerolls that increase in prize pool as you gain higher levels. They also have multiple Daily Freerolls for members that have deposited on the site :)

Good question... especially as the sites seem to be getting leaner & leaner on any rewards.

I can't tell you what the best one is & I guess it depends on what games/limits you're playing. pokerstars seems to be about the worst these days... and at one point in time they were probably one of the best.

Stars? Do you mean 'Pokerstars'?

I only play micro stakes on Pokerstars but my experience has been that they are one of the worst.
ie. the ridiculous 'Chest' system where you have no fixed % amount in Rewards/Rakeback... & instead you get some 'mystery' prize. This wouldn't be so bad if the prizes weren't so pathetic. (ie. currently I'm required to earn 2,850 pts. to win 1 Chest and that chest has never come with better than a couple of 25cent Spins &/or a $5,000 useless KO freeroll. That is GARBAGE!). If you were to work out what % that is in Rakeback I'm guessing it'd be something like 1/10th of 1%

I totally agree regarding the pokerstars. That's why i want to know about other poker rooms. Which is the best for cash game or tournaments according to you?

You have to look at the total package and not just rewards. What good are rewards, if you pay more rake in the first place and/or there are no action in the games, you want to play? If for instance you want to grind SnGs, you cant sit and wait an hour for a game to begin.

GG Poker has a really nice starter called the HoneyMoon. You do need to sign up for it and then there are daily tasks to complete but the rewards really are fantastic! Not sure if they have it any longer.

My favourite site is 888 - tons of Freerolls for depositing players ( luck frenzied all in games)
And I found and quoted this on bestpokersites.org - 888 was rated as #2

888 Poker

“#2 - An Innovative Poker Rewards Program for Non-US Players
888 are now the second biggest poker room, and their player rewards program has been a big factor in their recent increasing popularity. Their rewards are aimed at regular players more than the high-volume ‘grinders’. There are a lot of levels in the 888 rewards program. You move up by collecting gold coins (points) in the real money games. One unique factor is that you never go back down levels, any rise is permanent.
You can exchange your coins for bonuses or cash rewards via the 888 cashier. You can also spend them in a special store which has everything from 888 clothing to chip sets or even gadgets.
In addition to the point based reward system, each day you will get to spin a wheel to win extra prizes. These range from tournament tokens (the most common prize), though to ‘Blast!’ Sit N Go entries or $5 free play in the 888 casino.
888 are also big on one-off promotions for their players. You will also be able to qualify for the World Series of Poker each year, as this site is one of the main sponsors. Topping it all off, you get rewarded at 888 even before you deposit. New players get up to $88 in free play, simply for registering.”

OP's OP asks about Reward Programs... nothing more. :confused:

GGpoker has a very good reward program. The starting bonus is quite good and then there are freebies every day and cashback.

I haven’t played many sites recently since my return, but like many have said, stars is one of the worst for decent rewards, I’ve never been overly impressed with party pokers bonuses when I’ve tried either…
Im liking 888, 1 small deposit gets you many freerolls (including up to $109 tickets, I’ve won a couple), $200-$5000 games, regular play gets you into special freerolls for thousands.
Hand of the day on cash games has paid me a surprising amount in my short time (many .50-$1 days but a few $5-$10 bonus’s too) I’m on .02/.05 tables doing $2 buyins
Plus seasonal bonus games and more…
Traffic is slower than I remember but way softer than many sites, also good satellites (usually with added value) to bigger games…

in my opinion, the best rakeback at AmericasCardroom. even at low limits, you can get good rakeback just like in the best poker times (10 years ago) I tried many rooms, well, there is simply no better reward system at the moment! (this is not an advertisement)

Not sure i would be as concerned about the award system so much. I am more worried about having a good and safe site to play on more that awards. Looking at the rake system would be more inportant as well.

Well poker rooms often change their welcome programs fairly often, but they do have lots of other ongoing great events all the time. Most poker rooms have really seemed to scale down their welcome programs quite a bit lately. Plus they have the spin to get free stuff each day, and you can do 2 spins 1 on your computer and one on your mobile. Freerolls all day long. I just won a $109 ticket from one of the Freerolls. I had also won a $55 ticket. I have won over $200 from their Freerolls in the past 2 years, yes they are a all-in-shove-fest for the most part, but that’s the way it goes. 888 is still a great place.

Plus I quoted that post from online and who knows when it was posted and 888 was still doing that. :)

Bet 365 is offering quite good promotions right now. $365 play bonus, free tickets. The player base is not too strong either.

Yes, they are still doing that. The reason why I asked because they said we will give you $88.
