What Is a Bitcoin Poker Bonus?

Any online poker room worth its salt will offer you a generous bonus package when you sign up. Ignition Poker already has the biggest bonuses in the industry, but we’ll add even more free money to the pile when you use Bitcoin to do business.

Wait, free money? That’s right. You may already be familiar with our Ignition Poker Welcome Bonus, where we match your first deposit dollar-for-dollar, for up to $1,000 in bonus money. But if you use Bitcoin (or its counterparts, Bitcoin Cash or Bitcoin SV) to make that deposit, you can earn up to $1,250 instead, and get a larger match bonus at 125% instead of 100%. Even better, you can earn bonuses on every deposit you make when you use cryptocurrency. In the latest chapter of our Crypto guide, we’ll tell you all about the coveted Bitcoin Poker Bonus, and how to collect it.

How to Activate a Bitcoin Poker Bonus

Before signing up for the Bitcoin version of our Welcome Bonus, you need to know how to deposit Bitcoin at Ignition Poker. Still not quite sure how this works? Still asking yourself, “What is Bitcoin?” No sweat; you can find out all of the details elsewhere in our handy guide. It’s easy to figure out, and once you do, your first Bitcoin deposit at Ignition will be a cinch.

When you make that deposit, don’t forget to select “Ignition Poker Welcome Bonus” from the drop-down menu of Available Bonuses. Once your deposit goes through, you’ll have 30 days to clear the playthrough requirement; the more poker you play, the more bonus money you’ll earn. Consider playing our fast-fold Zone Poker games to reach your targets more quickly. Playing at higher stakes will also help you during this stage, but as always when it comes to poker, make sure you’re playing at stakes that you can afford. Don’t sacrifice sound bankroll management to chase down bonuses.

On top of all that free cash, our Unlimited Casino Match Bonus offers 25% match bonuses, up to $1,000, for every additional Bitcoin deposit you make at Ignition. You’ll need to play the games in our casino to clear the playthrough for this particular bonus; these include popular table games that will be familiar to many poker players, such as Caribbean Stud and Caribbean Hold’em. And for even more value at the poker tables, keep an eye on the Promotions page at Ignition for the next Bitcoin Poker freeroll offer.

How to Use a Bitcoin Poker Bonus

Every time you clear one of the eight bonus levels with your playthrough, we’ll put that bonus money directly into your Ignition Poker account, so you can use it to play any of the games on our menu. Unlike other “blockchain” poker sites, your account balance (including your bonus cash) is in US dollars, so you don’t have to worry about getting your currencies mixed up.

How to Withdraw a Bitcoin Poker Bonus

As with deposits, withdrawing your funds at Ignition Poker is easier when you use Bitcoin. Note that the bonus money you earn may require some added time before it can be withdrawn. Check the details on every bonus you claim to find out more. And make sure to collect all the other bonuses you can earn at Ignition, including our famous Royal Flush Bonus and Bad Beat Bonus – no playthrough required. Happy hunting!
