      ok i m really confuse 888 is really giving the cashback? it says 2% cashback till bronze.. for silver u get 4% cashback. by which i understand:

      up to bronze :if i pay 1000$ rake i ll get 2000SP.. which is my reward point. so when i want to convert 2000 point i ll get 2% of the 1000$ rake i paid... which is 20$... perfectly ok.

      now if i m silver: if i pay 1000$ i ll get the same SP. and same reward point so for 4% of cashback i ll get 40$ when i concert 2000SP.
      i m silver on 888 so as they said 4% cashback i shuld get the money as in the example avobe? but its not showing the same it was in bronze or iron or chorom. AM i getting something wrong.. i ll be happy if u correct me ... and tell me where is that 2% to 4% cashback really is?


      i had a conversation with their dumb support in the cashier live chat.. lemme copy paste it here.. if anybody interested u can read it.. at the end it became really funny.. i can imagine her face .. how desperate was she to cut off the chat cause she couldn't explain me a single correct shit::

      Please wait for a site operator to respond.

      You are now chatting with 'Belinda'

      you: hi belinda

      Belinda: Hi , this is Belinda from ; thanks for chatting with me.
      I noticed you are in the cashier, let's get you playing......

      Belinda: How are you Tanzirul?

      you: my support id: #*#* *####

      you: ya i m good

      you: :)

      Belinda: Thanks

      Belinda: Ok great

      you: i want to know something about status point can u help?

      Belinda: OK

      Belinda: Status Points (SPs) are earned for every game or tournament you play.

      Belinda: Bonus Points (BPs) are used to clear your pending bonuses. BPs are accumulated only if you have an active pending bonus; check your bonuses in the 'Get Rewards' page in the Cashier.

      Belinda: You can earn FPPs and BPs by:

      Belinda: Playing in poker ring games -earn 2 SPs + 2 BPs (if applicable) for every $1 of your contributed rake.*

      Belinda: Playing poker tournaments -earn 2 SPs + 2 BPs (if applicable) for every $1 of tournament fee.

      Belinda: Playing casino games (from your poker account) -earn 1 SP + 1 BP (if applicable) for every $16 wagered in the casino.

      you: ok in ur website it says 2% cashback till bronze

      you: and 4% for silver

      you: so i have 2778 reward point now

      you: so i m silver

      you: i paid 1389$ rake for that?

      Belinda: no

      you: as u said 1$ rake for 2sp?

      Belinda: http://www.888poker.com/poker-promotions/comp-points.htm

      Belinda: You can redeem $10 for every 1000 Reward Points you have.

      you: ok so wats the difference between bronze and silver status?

      you: http://www.888poker.com/rewards/statuses-overview.htm

      you: u can see here cashback is 2% for bronze and 4% for silver

      you: whats that mean?

      you: where m i getting that 4%?

      you: r u there?

      Belinda: Yes

      you: u got my question?

      Belinda: Yes but it is not distributed that way

      you: i dont get it!

      you: why u wrote 4% i can see its still 2% cashback for being silver

      you: by cashback u mean converting reward points?

      Belinda: Do you mind holding for one moment, please?

      you: sure :) i ll wait .. take ur time

      Belinda: Ok The percentages means that as you accumulate more and more points your status changes and you gain access to freerolls and win points

      you: its gonna increase at the same rate if i m iron or crome or watever

      you: and i m not getting cashback with more freerolls!

      Belinda: No as the points increases you gain more and more access to more freeroll and winning more points

      you: more freeroll is not part of cashback

      Belinda: Yes it is

      Belinda: $100 Daily Iron Freeroll, $ 200 Daily Chrome Freeroll etc

      you: if i dont win anything from freeroll! how is it cash back

      Belinda: No cash back but points added

      you: just tell me if 100$ rake how much point i will get for bronze? and how much if i m silver

      you: give the xample i ll understan :)

      Belinda: 100 points once you maintain the points needed

      you: for 100$ rake i ll get 200sp if i m bronze i know that

      you: bt for silver will i get 400 sp for 100$ rake?

      you: i need the math :) i m not convinced with just words..

      Belinda: 100 points for Bronze

      you: i m not asking how much point i need to get bronze

      Belinda: No that is the amount you will win Tanzirul

      you: ok and if i m silver.. how much point for for 100$ rake?

      Belinda: Example: If you bet $25 into a $100 pot (25%) and a $4.00 rake is taken from the table, you contributed $1.00 of rake (25%), which earns you 2 SPs and 2 BPs (if applicable).

      Belinda: Thank you for chatting with me, Is there anything that I can assist you with further?

      you: lemme get it

      you: u r answering something else

      Hi pieal

      It's funny but this is exactly what I was wondering last night in bed! I had to look it up for you and I found the answer on their website. It is the same as I thought it would be.

      Just to make things clear I'm going to sum up all the points systems all over again.
      • For every $1 rake you pay you get 2 Status Points (SP) Status Points are used to get a status, these points will reset every first day of the month(except with the VIP but thats not important now). You became silver because you made 500 Status Points in 1 month.
      • For every $1 rake you pay you get 2 Bonus Points (BP)as well. These Points are used to clear a bonus you are clearing.
      • Then there are Reward Points (RP). These points won't reset them, you can just save them up as long as you want. The Reward Points are used to get cashback or to purchase something in their shop.


      Now in order to receive $10 cashback you have to accumulate 1000RP and it doesn't matter which status you have at a certain moment, it will always cost 1000RP to get $10 cashback.
      The difference is (like you told Belinda is well) the amount of RP you'll get per status. From blue to bronze status you will get 1RP per 1SP you make/rake. If you are Silver on the other hand you'll get 2RP per 1SP you make/rake. So the points you accumulate while being silver will get you 2% cashback.

      Here is a link where I found the most important part of this information.
      Climb the statuses

      I hope this is a bit clear for you? If don't understand what I read/mean don't be afraid to ask further questions!

      I would also like to point to our overview of the 888 VIP system here.

      In case this offers some extra information about what to aim for.

      Hi Pieal!

      Sorry for the late reply! I wasn't able to come online yesterday.

      I've read more about this that the lobby is showing wrong blinds/time/etc... The only thing I can advice you is open (observe) a table, look at the blinds and then register. When you observe a table you are sure about the blinds.

      You say you couldn't unregister for a tournament and I had this as well before! I didn't mind at the time but I can imagine that if you have a couple tournaments open it's a more important matter!

      The only thing that you can do is contact the customer support... Last time when they had problems with their software they did repay players if I remember correct. The last issue 888poker had with their software was with the jackpot tables.
      I'm not sure what they will say but keep us up to date please!

      Unfortunately we can't bend the rules.

      However 300 posts isn't that hard to achieve in all fairness?

      Take part in other players blogs, use the hand evaluation section but most importantly DO NOT spam!

      All the best,
      Gary

      Hi Pieal

      At first I thought 300 posts was hard to achieve. But once you get active within the community it's easy! I'm sure you'll make it in no time!
