Since fulltilt have a reload bonus going until tomorrow.

I was wondering if its worth bashing out the bonus or ignore it and just take the rakeback?

Does the bonus not come out the rakeback anyway, in which case its no advantage doing either?

The deposit bonus and reload bonus will both affect rakeback as per the information on our rakeback page:

http://www.thehendonmob.com/full_tilt/rakeback_faq.html

You are not going to be worse off playing with rakeback and a bonus than just one or the other though, you'll get more money clearing a bonus whilst receiving rakeback than without.

Rob, can you be more specific on how much of the rakeback is affected by the deposit bonus.
Thanks

All rakeback is on the net profit Full Tilt make from the account. Obviously these figures are extremely rough and will vary greatly depending on stakes/short handed or full ring etc. but say you paid $300 in rake or tournament fees in a given month, and cleared $100 of bonus:

Assuming there were no other negatives like processing charges on the account, your rakeback is 27% of ($300 rake - $100 bonus), or 54 dollars, plus you also got $100 in bonus - total $154.

If you were just getting rakeback, you would have received 27% of $300, or $81.

If you were just getting the bonus, you would have got $100.

Hope I've explained that OK, if not, let me know.

You're fine for rakeback if you signed up with referral code MOB but to get your bonuses credited you will need to email support@thehendonmob.com with the details (account name/real name/amount transferred) and I'll get the bonus credited for you, else you will still get the bonus when you make your first standard deposit.

No, you just don't get rakeback on money already given back to you.

So yes you will receive rakeback whilst getting a bonus and you will be better off taking both, you just wont get as much rakeback.

A word of warning so that you don't make the same mistake as me.

"Spending 1000 points in the FTP store removes $1.35 worth of rakeback (showing as $5 in the Used Points column). Added money to tournaments comes off gross revenue based on the equity added per player, i.e. if $100 is added to a 100 player tournament, that counts as -$1 gross revenue if you take part (taking 27 cents off rakeback). Entering freerolls using FT points will affect your rakeback based on the equity added per player, not the number of points spent."

It's worth reading the above paragraph. Particularly when there are tournaments such as Poker Million which has a final with a guaranteed place worth $30,000 and you can buy in direct for 5000 ftp. Although you might think 5,000 points is only the equivalent of a baseball cap, if the overlay turns out to be big you will end up with a hefty negative rake figure. So don't fall in to thinking this is a freeroll as you could end up with no rake back for some while.
