      Hello
      Im a little bit confused by some things regarding the FDB and VIP system

      :dIf I deposit to ladbrokes, will I get to choose in which currency I want to deposit (eg. USD or EUROS) - if yes and I choose euros, how will be the FDB bonus cleared (on their site there is only how to clear USD and Sterling bonus)

      :dIf above stated is not possible (eg depositing in euros) - I will be forced to deposit in USD or Sterling and then to pay the exchange rate whenever I buy to the table, or auto top up (I cant see any other tables than Euro ones in the lobby atm)?

      :dRegarding VIP system - In other thread, someone stated that I will not have the 30% instant but I will have RB according to their system even if I registered under Pokerstrategy - is that how it works? :)

      I also want to add some questions about software
      :hIs there 4coloured deck possible?
      :hI read that auto buy in and auto rebuy are possible, is that right?

      Regarding traffic:
      :cIs there enough traffic to load up 4-8 tables of PLO sh on all limits during evenings mostly? (Whats the biggest PLO played there?)

      :cDo they share traffic with unibet?

      I would be really happy if someone answered some or all of this questions :)

      Thanks
      Tsukk

      Hi Tsukk,

      I will answer a few of your questions in this reply and we have people finding out the rest for whatever isn't addressed here in this post.

      If I deposit to ladbrokes, will I get to choose in which currency I want to deposit (eg. USD or EUROS) - if yes and I choose euros, how will be the FDB bonus cleared (on their site there is only how to clear USD and Sterling bonus)

      Pauline: You may choose what currency you want to deposit in once when you initially register the account, after that you cannot change your deposit method unless you open another account.

      Pauline: I will look into your bonus question now, please wait


      Pauline: The system will automatically work out what you have deposited in Euros and change it to dollars which is the poker currency.

      This is direct from Ladbrokes support conversation.

      The other details I am looking into at the moment for you as this person was able to help further, and the appropriate person was not available, so she gave me the email address. But, overall the quality of support is very good compared to a lot of other poker rooms.


      I'll post again when I have further details for you.

      Oh and yes they have four colour deck I'm almost sure, but I will confirm.

      Best wishes,


      Danny.

      Auto Top Up

      Auto Top-Up is a new feature that enables you to automatically top up your table balance as soon as it drops below a predetermined threshold. This feature is only applicable to Cash games.

      Yes there is auto buyin and auto top up.
      Almost all cash tables are in EUR so you should pick EUR as currency if you do not wish to be charged conversion fee every time you sit and stand up from a table.

      Rake back is up to 30% and it consist of:
      10% player points conversion +
      17% or 20% regular rakeback paid twice a month
      (if your <gold which is less then 350$ rake per month then you do not qualify for this rakeback, if you rake between 350$-1000$ you qualify for 17% rakeback, and if you rake more than 1000$ per month you qualify for 20% rakeback which in combination with point conversion makes up the max 30% rakeback.)

      4 colored deck is possible.

      There should be at least 4 tables up to plo200 sometimes plo400, limit with most tables would be plo50

      Highes stakes for SH is plo2k and for HU plo5k

      but does this bonus have anything to do with the points you can redeem for 10% rakeback?

      And if i understand correctly, i should wait for 45 days in order to claim the bonus, so i would get back more money?

      thanks

      Hi Skodljivec,

      The rakeback and deposit bonus dont effect eachother they dont subtract your points when you earn the FDB, so you will still get your 10% for cash points. Also it wont make a diference if it takes you 45 days or 5 days to clear the bonus.

      Hope this helps

      @ Skodljvec and Ingrid.

      They have changed their new user deposit bonus system.Skodiviec is right in the way that he has 45 days to claim his bonus and should obviously wait until the last day to make his claim as he will get the most out of the old system that way.The claim form is on the link below as well as new details of the new system for people who join and deposited after the 1st of February.

      Ladbrokes bonus page and claim form for old system

      Details of the old system are not there anymore but make sure Skodijvec that you have the exact details of dates that you joined and the 45th day after that so you make your claim that day.I remember talking to you before about Ladbrokes and i'm pretty sure you should be making your claim within the next week or two if i am correct.

      Edit: They do have the details of the old system actually.Just click on "click here" where it says this sentence on the link above:

      *If you made your first deposit before 12:00 GMT 1st February 2012 click here to claim your bonus.
