How to release the bonus:

Each time you play you earn WHPoints. For every 350 WHPoints you will release $5 of your bonus. You earn points pretty quickly. For example a tournament fee of just $1 will earn you 30 WHPoints. You have up to 60 days to release the full bonus amount, so if you play quite often it's pretty easy to clear the full $600 if that is what you deposit
