I just finished my first two Pokersource promotions and since both sites were on the Ongame network I thought I would save time and review them both.

Bwin has a confusing loyalty program (b'inside) which has to be signed up for on the website after you have downloaded and registered. You need 20,000 market points with this b'inside loyalty program to complete the promotion. You get 10 market points per $0.10 rake and 100 market points per $1 tournament fee. So it takes 200 $10 +$1 sit n go's to complete the promotion. If you prefer not to play poker you can always bet in the casino or sportsbook as this will also gain you market points.

Hollywood Poker's system is simpler . You gain 0.1 poker points per $0.10 rake and 5 poker points per $1 tournament fee. So it takes 65 $10 +$1 sit n go's to gain the 325 points required to complete.

Be advised on this network you have to contribute to the pot and the rake has to be more than $0.10 to earn points, so the size of the pot is important and has to be above $2 or the rake will be too small to earn points off. ( I wasted a fair amount of time playing at the micro limits).

Therefore I give Bwin : 5/10 (for a confusing points system and other issues)
Hollywood poker gets 9/10 (3 times faster than bwin and easily completed within 4days).

PSO gets 10/10 I received the points and thereby the books from the store within a week of completing the bwin promotion and the Stoxpoker subscription from the Hollyowod promotion within 2 days! Very fast and efficient so thank you PSO.
