thumbs down 888 and the Royal Straight Flush Jackpot

Hi guys,

I recently registered thru PokerStrategy.com to 888poker, and have come to share with you my experience with their Royal Flush Jackpot.

Yesterday, the 8th of August 2010, I had the fortune to bump into 2 Royal Straight Flushes - The gods must have smiled at me.

888poker has a promotion for Royal Straight Flushes, which awards 100% of a cumulative to a Royal Straight Flush of Spades, and 10% to any other.

I checked all the terms and conditions, and both seem to be valid, as some players at the table checked and confirmed at the time. After that, I have contacted support, who told me that I would receive it in an hour or so, or a phonecall. I received none. At the time the Jackpot was on 208,975$00.

When I insisted with the support after that hour, I was told that they had to be verified (understandable considering that 2 RSF in one day is not common for the same player) and that they could give me no time frame for me to receive an answer - "This is the procedure" is what I was told.

The impression that I got from this communication is that 888poker aka Cassava Ent. are relutant to give away the $, to extend their propaganda of a large RSF Jackpot. If things get too extended, I am afraid that I will have to turn to the official entities that licene and regulate the online poker industry.

I would appreciate it as well if PokerStrategy.com would use their influence to rush the process, which I am sure would be considered by 888.com.

Thank you for the time, and I am hoping that the process will be brief. fish confused

Cheers,

Club Filipe

This means that I should get the full 100% of the Jackpot + 10% of the 25.000$00 that starts the next round of the jackpot.

Hello Filipe,

Congratulations to your 2 royal flushes.

If you played on a Royal Flush table and fulfilled the terms and conditions of 888poker you should receive the money.

As far as I can see, there is no JP icon in the first screen shot. So hopefully you were eligible.

If you need further assistance from us, please contact our http://resources.pokerstrategy.com/Editorial/elements/ps_image_arrow_link.pngCustomer Service.

Best regards,
Hannes

Hi guys,

Thanks! fish grin

In the Hand History tool does not show the JP contribution from players, but in both time I am sure to have fullfilled all the terms.

The Jackpot is still running, and misleading others that may get another RSF... Let's see how brief they are paying out.

Miss you all, and hope that you can give me some advice on how to proceed, since they are PokerStrategy's partners and it is not related directly to your service.


Kind regards,

Club filipe

Hi Filipe,
I sincerely hope I can say Congratulations! fish grin

The first screenshot, Spade Royal Flush, does not have the JP symbol, in green or red, in none of the players... the place where the jackpot amount should be displayed is covered with the pop up... was this a jackpot table? fish eek

Hope all T&C are covered and that you do not have multiple accounts, they don't forgive it in case of prizes. shark evil

They might need some time to check everything, although you might not like it.

Their customer support line is free, give them a ring if the email replies don't convince you - my advice: call the PT line wink

Keep us posted.

Cheers, Soraia

Hi All,

I spoke to one of my colleagues and had it confirmed that the Jackpot payout has been performed accordingly. Also the Jackpot has been updated in order to avoid further confusion.

I'm awaiting further details with regards to the exact amount.


As soon as I have further details, I will post them here!!


Greetings,

Sebastian (888poker VIP Poker Team)

Hi kallebah,

The 20K for the Diamond RSF are in my account, but I will only take it for granted when my cashout is approved, which is taking quite a while.

Let's see how hard it will be. 6 days have passed, and yesterday the 20K were back in my account without any notice of denial for any reason.

Today I got an email asking for documents, which I have sent twice before I got the Jackpot, thru email for a smaller cashout, and using the cashier tools on the software.

I will post my final impression as soon as the $ is cashed out. Thank you.

Regards,

Club Filipe

Did you get it for the fist one? because on most sites that doesnt qualify as usually the royal flush has to include two picture cards in your hand.
Interesting to know if not

Hi Lekingdom


From the T&C the jackpot is only applicable if you play at a jackpot table
