      Hello nukem1981,

      Are you saying you have 24,86£ on your restricted account?

      The term 'restricted' refers to you needing to gather 300 basic strategy points before you can cash out the money (and before you receive the additional $100 bonus).

      In the meantime you can play with it just like with regular money.

      Hello nukem1981,

      Have you tried sitting down at a table yet? You should be able to use your restricted money in the same way as normal money.

      I got into a few tourneys, didnt do to well but still hanging onto about $10.


      So if i gather 300 points then i receive an extra $100 ?


      What if i loss my money.. can i still deposit my own money in order to carring on building up my points to collect the promotional $100?

      Hello nukem1981,

      Please be sure to follow the bank-roll management. With starting capital of $50 you don't have sufficient bankroll for larger tournaments - just SnGs. I recommend re-reading the strategy articles - since the bonus $100 are void - if you lose your starting $50. You can of course deposit your own money later - but this initial bonus will no longer be valid.

      If you play according to the strategies, and use bankroll management - reaching 300 points should not be a problem.
