Party Poker announced their big February promotion and it is the return of the Snowball. While that might remind those of us in the Northern Hemisphere how cold it is right now, the promotion itself is pretty good. The Snowball is a series of freeroll entries, mini bonuses and by the end big bonuses. These are all instant bonuses, they are unlocked by earning Party Points rather than making a deposit. You don’t need to clear these either, once you earn them they are cash in your pocket. The prizes “snowball” as well. You don’t get one prize at the end of this, you get every single prize you earn along the way.

So what are the prizes? The first 5 are freerolls. A $5,000 freeroll entry for 5 points, 10K for 25 points, and up to a $50,000 freeroll entry for 200 points. After that it is onto mini bonuses. You get $3 in cash for 300 points, $4 for 400, and $5 for 500. This doesn’t sound too impressive given that is 100 points per $1, where Party’s initial deposit bonus is 6 points per $1. It slowly gets better. The rate improves at 750 Party points as that earns you $10. 1,000 points earns $12, and then it jumps up even more at $1,500 points for $26 in cash. This keeps increasing until the end of the Snowball which is a $5,000 prize for 75,000 points. If you reach 75,000 points you would earn $10,000 along the way plus your freeroll entries. So you can see why on their own the points per dollar amount seems weak, but you aren’t earning one bonus at a time, you are accumulating more and more prizes as you go along.
