      Hey guys, sorry to sound repetitive to previous threads, but curious to how this works? Once you pass the test, then you receive 50 dollars for free? how does this work though, as in does a percentage of my rake or something along those lines go towards poker strategy or?

      Cheers

      You probably have to do an id-test. And you dont have to pay any of your rake to pokerstrategy ;) --> Rakeback

      hi soundflip,

      yes that sounds correct. you pass the quiz, pass ID verification, receive the free $50 and start playing with it. you generate rake in the poker rooms where you play, they give us money for bringing a new player for them.

      you can check out our business model here. :)

      MrArtVandelay, thanks for chiming in here. just want to clarify that rake is different from rakeback. rake is the part the pot that the poker room takes every hand (so it goes to the poker room). rakeback is the part of that which goes to the player and is usually expressed in percentages.

      hope that clears everything up guys. any more questions, dont hesitate to ask.

      smiles,
      wendy

      Hi Moderators,

      I want to know the status of my starting 50$. I am waiting for it since I passed the quiz already and submitted the needed identification but there is no feedback yet.

      Thank you for your kind help.

      hi markcasement :)

      welcome to our community! dont worry about matel, he's a real kidder :D but still awesome like the rest of the community :)
      it usually takes around 48 hours but the weekend is coming up so there might be a little delay.
      will have someone look up your case and get back to you soon. also pls keep a close eye on your tickets as that is how primary communication occurs. in the meantime, why dont you watch some videos or read some articles first to get you started? :)

      we look forward to seeing you around.

      also @ soundflip, how is your case going? i see you havent become bronze yet :( any updates? let me know pls.

      smiles everyone and have a happy weekend!

      Hi MrArtVandelay,

      Considering you only sent your ID today and that it also now the weekend I would suggest going to bed :)

      The transfer will most likely be delayed as it's the weekend but rest assured it will in your poker account within the next 48 hours, as long as you pass the ID Verification.

      All the best,
      Gary

      that's really great to hear! :D now all you need is a little patience :) . remember, no need deposit, just wait for your funds to arrive. in fact, it is better not to do so at least until you receive your free starting capital to avoid complications. ok? let me know when it gets there!

      cheers guys. :)

      hmm im not sure, sent off a ticket or what not to technical support. I'm now bronze, which im not sure what that means? But ive already deposited with the bonus code, which makes me think im likley not to receive the bonus now? If the site hasnt registed me as actually picking a platform, could be a bit of a pain in the arse, and might have to use a different site or make another deposit somewhere else?

      hi soundflip,

      being bronze means one of two things: either you've received your starting capital or you've been tracked to PokerStrategy.com by making a deposit. the support team would know better which case it is. let me confirm this for you first. also, i would advice not making a deposit anywhere else until you receive your starting capital. (just to reiterate, it does not require a deposit to be transferred to you, and in some poker rooms, actually make it more complicated). il try to get an answer for you asap but its the weekend so must request for a little patience. :)

      sigh, failed the id check for whatever reason. Do you not think it would be a good idea if everyone could submit id again once? just to like get a clearer picture or somthin although we dont know where we went wrong..
