      Hi hprhadfield,

      I have moved your thread to it's relevant board here in Beginners Questions.

      I guess you are talking about our Twenty for Twenty Promotion at PKR then?

      Here are the terms and conditions from the page:

      • This promotion is open to players from Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Canada, Australia, Greece, Ireland, Norway, Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

      • This promotion is only for players who do not have a PKR account yet.

      • You can collect 20,000 play money chips by playing on the practice tables of PKR.

      • Players have 30 days after creating their account to build a bankroll of 20,000 play money chips.

      • The $20 will be credited to your account within 7 days after completing the challenge.

      • Players can withdraw the free $20 once they have paid $10 in rake or collected 1,000 PKR Points.

      • If a participating player makes a deposit, transfers funds from their PKRCasino balance, or places bets on non-poker games before they have first reached the target balance of 20,000 play money chips, they will no longer be eligible to qualify for the promotion.


      If you have fulfilled these terms and conditions and you're country is eligible then I would suggest sending PKR an email and ask them about this transfer.

      Kind regards,
      Gary

      hello there hprhadfield,

      Can you please calm down and speak in a friendly way to your fellow community members and to my moderator? That's a first :) thank you.

      Now, the link that Gary posted is actually full of with all the important information especially for you. I'm not going to quote it again because I believe you can read it yourself. If you feel that you fulfilled the terms and conditions and still didn't receive the $20 then please post here and I'll escalate your case.

      I've also stated clearly which countries are not eligible in the chat thread which is linked to every news/promo page regarding this: Twenty for Twenty: Get your free $20 at PKR!

      Please keep in mind that the free $20 is only available to players from the following countries: Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Greece, Ireland, Norway and the Netherlands.

      Hi again,

      Actually, I wanted to verify whether or not we are giving incorrect information.

      If you look at my avatar, I am a moderator. I wouldn't have the powers to change pages or links or that. I work voluntarily for PokerStrategy.com helping members like you to get questions answered/problems solved

      I'm not exactly appreciative of your tone right now, but if you would kindly reply to my previous question, I will gladly look into this for you.

      Best regards,
      Gary

      Well then, that's fair enough.

      I think it's fair to point out that PKR set the rules up for these promotions so it may be worth your while in talking to them.

      PokerStrategy have nothing to do with the terms of conditions of this promotion so it's all in the hands of PKR.

      If you do talk to them, I suggest toning down on the anger as it won't get you very far.

      We offer a FREE $50 starting capital which is considerably more than $20.

      You can view all that information here

      All the best,
      Gary

      you could also try depositing A few dollars and see what ps has to offer, their articles, vids and coaching stuff is great, not to mention the great forum members who are second to none :-)

      Chill out, Give them a chance its not their fault pkr set such requirements :)

      I have no Idea what kiwi's use as currency but most sites have very low min deposits :)
