you've got the gist of what we're doing, there's no
need to waffle and give you the reasoning behind everything,
so with our new found haste and enthusiasm, lets move

second port of call is Sporting Odds. The offer
on the table here is superb.
raked hands required (within 100 days).
it is basically the same clearance rate as you have
just played at Bet 365 (20c bonus per raked hand), but
twice as big a bonus and therefore twice as big a raked
of your bonus will be released after your first 100
raked hands, with the final $70 being released after
you complete a further 400. Hands raked at any level
count towards your total.
a small but sturdy sum - say $30-$40. This should be
enough to guard you against a bad run of luck and should
be enough to clear the 500 raked hands at Low Limit
tables, if you play sensibly. If you prefer to play
No Limit or higher Limit games, you might want to deposit
slightly more. It's up to you.
to note about the site
would say the standard of play is slightly lower than
at Bet 365 (the Prima Network), with 70-80% of players
seeing the flop on many of the Low Limit tables. This
means that when you get a big hand, you win big. But
be careful, your pocket Aces will often be beaten by
someone who started with a far worse hand than you and
just happened to flop 3 of a kind or better. Be prepared
to get a bit frustrated from time to time, but be prepared
to make a killing too, if you play it right.
there is no display of how many raked hands you have
accumulated. I found this annoying at first but soon
gained a small amount of satisfaction from harassing
the customer support on a regular basis - not usually

have one $200 daily freeroll, open to 500 entrants at
19:00 GMT (Although their server time is wrong by one
hour, so its actually at 20:00). Always worth a go,
especially with relatively few entrants.

24 hours of clearing the bonus amount. Once your bonus
is cleared, you are free to cash out.

are visiting 32
Red for a slightly different type
of bonus, and a bit of variation! Some may not
like the sound of it, so take a read and see
what you think - if it's not for you, move on
to site #4.
play through bonus
importantly, special Thursday 3-2 bonuses!
it is back to the Prima network for our 3rd site, so
you will actually be playing at the same tables as you
were at Bet 365.
Red requires a minimum deposit of $50, for
which you will recieve an instant bonus of $10 and an
uninspiring $25 play through bonus (uninspiring because
you have to stake a whopping $1,400 to claim it). HOWEVER,
that isn't why we are here!
then, why are we here?

for the following reason. Every time you get dealt a
red 3 and a red 2 as your pocket cards, on a Thursday,
they will give you $10.

received a $10 bonus on a non raked hand).

red 3 and 2 can be either a diamond or a heart.
You therefore have 4 possible hand combinations

How should I play for this bonus?
you like to play one table, giving it your undivided
attention, watching for player traits and exploiting
the bluffers, this bonus is not going to be that profitable
and you should view it only as a bit of added excitement!
if you want to maximise your profits, it is recommended
that you play 3, 4 or even 5 tables.
I play 4 tables (I find 5 just a little too much to
handle) and go all out for a couple of hours whilst
reading the news or a forum... As you're not actually
looking to win hands, you can afford to play a lot,
lot tighter and can therefore afford to not give it
your 100% attention. Try playing the 10c/20c Fixed Limit
tables and only play the very best hands. Using this
tactic, I will usually hit a couple of Red 3,2's and
come away with a nice bonus.
at 32 Red, make sure you again take advantage of their
freerolls. As you will be playing a lot of hands on
a Thursday, you will be able to qualify for all the
"100 raked hands" criteria freerolls, for
the next 24 hours. These tournaments often have as few
as 400 players, with 80 places paid and $250 going to
the winner. At the very least, you stand a good chance
of picking up a few dollars!
should view this site / bonus as an ongoing bit of fun,
to run in conjunction with your more stringent bonus
whoring on other sites.
you played your first two sites to a break even level,
you will have a profit of $150 and can therefore afford
to have $50 tied up in 32 Red, whilst moving on to other
sites to continue bonus whoring. So with that, carry
out your progress check then lets move on!
here to move on to site number 4!
