Bonusing System

Ya Poker’s bonus system is the most advanced in online poker.

Now you’ll earn a bonus when you:

  • Make a deposit
  • Enter a bonus code into the bonus code redemption field (Bonus Section of the Cashier)
  • Purchase a bonus from the store

Our system also simplifies the tracking and redeeming of your bonuses.

Bonus management

Bonuses are managed from the Bonuses section of the Rewards tab inside the Ya Poker software. You’ll be able to see the expiration date, amount released, and amount pending for every single bonus you’ve taken advantage of.

Bonus choice

With Ya Poker it’s possible that you’ll have more than one bonus code tied to your account. With our Bonus System, you can actually choose which bonus you’d like to work toward releasing first.

Earning Award Points.

Just play at our real-money tables and you will be earning Award Points.


You will earn 5.5 Award Points for each $1 USD paid in tournament fees. For example, let’s say you are playing an online poker tournament that costs $20+2 to get into. $20 goes to the prize pool and $2 is the entry fee, for tournaments, we only look at the fee associated with the buy-in. In this example, that is $2, and as you are awarded 5.5 APs for every $1 in fees paid, you will earn 11Aps ($2 x 5.5 = 11 APs). What if the buy-in is less than $1? Don’t worry. You will earn fractional APs, too.


As we use the Weighted Contributed Rake methodology to calculate your points, you will earn Award Points for playing (contributing), but also for how much (weighted) you contribute to the pot on each hand.

Award Points are awarded at a rate of 5.5 APs for each $1 in rake generated

Bonus tracking

You can keep up with your bonuses by referring to the Bonus Progress Bar. This can be found in the Bonus Section of the Rewards tab. As soon as you hit the bonus requirement, you will be able to redeem it for cash.

Bonus redemption

Once you have earned out the required Points to release your bonus, you will be able to hit the “Click Here to Redeem” button, as soon as you click it, the bonus will be automatically entered into real money balance. You’ll see exactly how much you have within the Rewards section.

Eveything you need to manage, track, and release your bonus ca be found in the Bonuses section of the Reward tabs.
