Most online poker sites offer new depositing customers a welcome bonus and TigerGaming is no different. What makes TigerGaming’s offer stand out from the crowd is the sheer size of the first deposit bonus being offered.
Anyone who downloads TigerGaming via PokerNews can get their hands on this huge bonus. If you make a deposit of between $50 and $2,500, then email email@example.com with the bonus code “NEWTG” in the subject heading, you will see your deposit amount matched 100 percent in the form of a bonus. Then each time you earn 1,500 Comp Points, $5 of your bonus is released into your account balance.
You have 60 days to release your bonus funds. Any bonus funds not released in this time are forfeited
In addition to the potentially massive welcome bonus, TigerGaming awards new depositing players with not one but two tickets to a $5,000 freeroll. The $5,000 First Depositor’s Freeroll takes place every Sunday at 8:00 p.m. ET and, as the name suggests, is only open to players who have made their first deposit in the last week and features a $5,000 prize pool. As only players who have recently made their first deposit at TigerGaming being eligible for this freeroll, the number of entrants should be significantly lower than you would expect from such a rich freeroll tournament.
Once you have funded your new TigerGaming account, you will be able to participate in ongoing promotions such as the $5,000 Multi-table Leaderboard Challenge, the $5,000 Sit ‘n’ Go Weekly Leaderboard Challenge, and the $10,000 Weekly Cash Leaderboard. It may be the Unlimited Bad Beat Jackpot, however, that yields the most value.
On May 24, “Catfancy” suffered a horrendous bad beat by losing with four of a kind jacks or better but instead of bemoaning their bad luck, they won a gargantuan $229,350 courtesy of the bad beat jackpot which was touching $850,000.
The jackpot has been reseeded and currently stands at approximately $250,000. Thirty-five percent of the jackpot goes to the player who loses the hand, 17.5 percent of the jackpot goes to the winner of the hand, 17.5 percent is awarded to the other players at the table and 30 percent is seeded back into the bonus for the next bad beat jackpot.
