|2015 update - Carbon Poker remains open but is closed to affiliate referals, therefore we can no longer offer support or exclusive promotions. PokerBonus recommends Americas Cardroom, US friendly with 27% daily cashback and a $1,000 signup bonus.|
The Carbon Poker initial deposit bonus offer is 200% up to $5,000. That means if you deposit $2,500 you'll receive a free $5,000 bonus which releases cash into your account as you play.
Carbon Poker's signup bonus offer is open to all new players for their first deposit after downloading the client.
Once you make your first deposit into your new Carbon Poker account, part of the deposit will be matched as noted in step 1 below. This is your deposit bonus.
Once you accumulate the required amount of player points (in cash games or tournaments), a portion of your deposit bonus is earned and placed in your Carbon Poker account. Once you have earned part of your bonus, you can play real money games with it or withdraw the funds.
Please note when you make a withdrawal, the remaining un-cleared bonus will be lost.
In order to receive the best Carbon Poker deposit bonus available, all you need to do is follow these steps:
1. Click the 'Claim Bonus' button to download the free Carbon Poker software from the Carbon Poker PokerBonus download page.
2. Create a Carbon Poker account by clicking the 'Create Account' button once the software is installed.
3. Make a minimum deposit of $10 using the bonus code listed on the sign-up page and start playing.
Carbon Poker Bonus - 7% Additional Rakeback
Each increment of $10 is released in return for raking $150 as you play. $10 / $150 = 6.67% value back.
The Carbon Bonus is thought of as extra Rakeback because few players are able to clear the maximum bonus. Reasons for this include:
- Credit card deposits are capped at $1,000
- The highest stakes at Carbon Poker are $3/$6
- Hard to multitable at midstakes with the current traffic
Since the bonus is only good on the 1st deposit, and lower stakes means lower rake, the maximum bonus amount of $5,000 is rarely cleared within the 90 day period. A player would need to pay $75,000 in rake, or $25,000 each month, to release the maximum bonus.
In any case, the $10 release increments still make it a good promotion for players because even low-stakes Carbon players are able to release at least a portion of the bonus.
