it looks like the initial bonus clears at 50% rb, is that correct?

$50 for 100 VIP points, 1 VIP point per $1 paid in rake. I hope it gives out partial points.

Then after the first $1000 bonus is unlocked we get $30 per 100 VIP points, so 30%.

so my questions are the following.

1. the recurring bonus, is it bonus money we have to unlock by playing more, or just 100 VIP points, $30 cash.

2. Can the points earned be spent on anything?

3. And does anyone know how much % rb earning the points themselves ends up being?

4. Do they have any reload bonuses, are we eligable under this deal?

it looks like 50% CONTRIBUTED rakeback for the bonus and then 30% contributed after that.

but if you move up in their VIP the rakeback increases up to at least 55%, and maybe higher

Earn cash back for your play each and every month.

I'll get answers from Arctic. Regarding #1, the money released is cash; it isn't bonus money.

You would be eligible for reload offers, though I'm not sure if they are offered, or if they would clear along with the recurring bonus, or if the recurring bonus would be placed on hold.

Your equation for converting the bonus offer to a rakeback offer is correct.

This is right, the bonus is based on Contributed Rake, not Rakeshare. As thoroughly discussed elsewhere, this benefits the LAG/shorthanded player, full table TAGs are hurt by the contributed method.

Also, we arranged to have you move up in tiers at 1/2 the level noted. So if you rake $4k in a month, we can get you to the 55% bonus level. If you have a history of raking well for us, email me and I'll contact Arctic about giving you a bump from the start so you don't have to 'earn' the higher VIP tiers directly on Arctic...Basically I'll vouch for you given your history on a different room.

More details here for those that had the email eaten by their spam filter: http://www.rakebacknation.com/arctic-poker/. Its a pretty sweet deal for a prima room.

Heres the word from Arctic:

1. Its cash.

2. Probably not, but maybe in the future. They mentioned a live tournament package would be available for anyone earning 120k VIP points, though I don't have details on this and it isn't 100% confirmed.

3. Basically its 50% rakeback while clearing the bonus and 30% rakeback thereafter.

4. Reload bonuses probably won't be available. If you notice one in the future let me know and I will find out if we are eligible. As a general rule though, expect that they will only allow one bonus to be cleared at a time.

Hope this helps,
Rob

Ah, I found this on their VIP page, “Become an Arctic Pro!! Once you receive Arctic Pro Ultra status you will be guaranteed one live tournament promotion. Everyone can be a pro at Arctic Poker.”

If this is something anyone is interested in pursuing, I'll find out what exactly the tournament promotion would be.
