Poker Ocean is proud to introduce Poker Ocean Points - our new unique player points. And not only that, we are very excited to introduce new features in the Poker Ocean software that will make your playing experience more thrilling than ever before.
Poker Ocean Points are earned at ring games based on the "rake taken" during each hand. For example, if $0.50 in rake is taken at a hand, all participating players, whether they contributed to the pot by placing a blind or a bet, or whether they folded, will receive 1 Point. If $3, the maximum rake, is taken at a hand, all participating players will receive 8 Points. Clarification: “rake taken” refers to the entire amount of rake taken from all players during the hand, and not from any individual player.
Poker Ocean Points are also awarded at tournament play. For every $1 in fee each player generates, he will receive 20 Points.
Exact information about Poker Ocean Points is detailed here.
When you sit at a ring game table, you'll see a line above or below your nickname. The word Points stands for Poker Ocean Points. After each raked hand you will see this number grow. This represents the number of Points you've earned at that ring game.
Note the number above the player's nickname - this is the number of Poker Ocean Points earned at that ring game.
Remember, you only earn Points if the hand is raked, and the rake has passed a minimum of $0.25.
Click on the My Account button at the bottom of the Poker Ocean software and you will see a new window with details of your available Real Money. But, there's something much more. You will be able to see lines detailing your Poker Ocean Points Balance and your Pending Bonus Dollars.
Poker Ocean Points Balance - This is your running total of accumulated Poker Ocean Points.
Pending Bonus Dollars - This is the amount of bonuses you are entitled to receive, whether from a First Deposit Bonus or a Reload Bonus.
Bonuses are released automatically at the rate of 1000 Points = $10.
Bonuses are issued automatically - For every 1000 Points you earn, $10 will be redeemed from your Pending Bonus Dollars account and converted into real money. This is done automatically - as you play! $5 is issued, no matter what your currency.
Deposits are added automatically - When you make your First Deposit, entitling you to a Signup Bonus, the amount of your bonus is added to your Pending Bonus Dollars automatically. This bonus will be redeemed as you earn Points.
