Poker Bonus Codes are used when new players are making a deposit at an online poker room. Bonus codes are usually special bonuses offered by poker rooms as a way of trying to get you to sign up at their room over another room. Many poker rooms require new players to enter a code in order to receive the bonus. Some bonus codes are better than others. For example if a new play signs up at Doyles Room they will receive a 110% bonus to $500, but if you use the Doyles Room bonus code “1000DOYLES” you will receive a 100% bonus up to $1000. That is an extra $500 just for using bonus code!

Earning a Poker Bonus
The poker rooms give these great deals to players, but you must play poker to clear the bonus. This means that you will earn pieces of your total bonus as you play. Depending on the size of the bonus, it usually takes a few hours of play to unlock $50 of bonus money. The more tables and higher the limits you play will normally unlock it faster.
Your deposit bonus is actually unlocked in small increments (Usually $5 or $10) and is then given to you once you earn a certain amount of points from playing poker. You have to be playing at real money tables in order to unlock your bonus. Tournament and SNG fees will also count towards clearing your poker bonus.
If you play mid stakes poker or higher, you should definitely look into poker rakeback. You can get a good portion of your rake back on top of these poker bonus offers.
