The bonus at EmpireOption is pretty average, around 30% for any deposit. The amount grows as the amount of money in the account increases. EmpireOption offers additional incentives from time to time but when doing this review, they weren’t running any.

One of the things that impressed me most about EmpireOption is the amount of information they include in the platform without making the whole thing complicated or difficult to understand. The wide choice of different trading accounts is appreciated. However I would have liked to see a choice of a second platform such as the MetaTrader 4 platform.
Simplicity seems to be the name of the game at EmpireOption. The website is user-friendly and the registration process is straightforward. I was pleasantly surprised to find attached to the email confirmation I received following my account registration, a User's Guide with the basics on how to start trading binary options. The other educational tools, including the ebook, seminars and videos with step-to-step instructions, are also uncomplicated but are highly informative and well-defined.
