Launched in 2002, Heypoker offers not only poker but casino and sports betting as well. They are a part of the poker network OnGame, which is a good thing for the skilled poker player looking for fish. OnGame is a popular choice among sports betting sites that wish to add a poker room, and you can therefore find plenty of unskilled poker players here – punters that won a bit of money and decided to try out poker for fun.
Heypoker is headquartered in Malta and owned by the Swedish company 360Holding AB. Since the poker room is a part of OnGame, the gambling license for poker is from Gibraltar.
Heypoker has five different welcome bonuses to chose among, so it is easy to find one that suits your particular poker playing plans. The bonus will be given as a matching bonus on your first deposit.
$20 bonus. 100% matching bonus. You must deposit at least $20.
$100 bonus. 200% matching bonus. You must deposit at least $50.
$500 bonus. 500% matching bonus. You must deposit at least $100.
$1 000 bonus. 500% matching bonus. You must deposit at least $200.
$2 000 bonus. 500% matching bonus. You must deposit at least $400.
You release your welcome bonus into your account by playing for real money at Heypoker. If you have chosen the smallest bonus ($20), you only need to collect 160 player points to release the entire bonus. For the largest bonus ($2 000) you must gather 16 000 player points. Some bonuses are released in fractions, while other can only be released as a whole.
When you make your first deposit, you will receive free entrance to the Bankroll Booster tournament, a $1 000 GTD.
