      Hi, I received a question at JA forum.

      What is the payout structure going to be like?

      Also, does "Players will then be allocated..." mean the players cannot choose which date they are going to play?

      Thank you very much!

      allocated = given. This means that they will be given a time to play on one of the dates in the thread. The given time will be convenient to the person's time zone.

      Hope that helps!

      Hi nelem88,

      When did you make a deposit with the code?

      You wouldn't receive a ticket, I am emailing players to confirm the SNG they are being entered into.

      Best regards,
      Harry

      Hi again

      I am afraid as the terms state we have to give 48 hours notice, you were too late for this weekends SNG. The only remaining option is the 9th/10th Feb

      Best regards

      so you deposit min $25 and are automatically entered into a STT with a pro? if you win do you have to clear the money you won as a bonus?

      Hey yougotfelted51,

      I would imagine the money won would be put directly into your account and not be a bonus. Hopefully Harry can clarify this for sure :)

      I think it is a little deceptive to say its a "free ticket to $200 STT".

      Because the standard description by poker players of a SnG is by the buy in, not the prize pool. It is actually a free entry to a $20 SnG.

      When you say $200 STT it makes it sound 10x better than it actually is.

      I'm not saying its not still a good promotion, it seems like it is, just that the wording is a bit misleading and when I saw free $200 SnG for $25 deposit pretty much wet myself. :f_biggrin:

      Hi yougotfelted51,

      The SNG will be a $200 SNG with a $25 bounty on the Pro, there is no restrictions if you win the cash. I will email you to confirm your time slot for either the 8th or 9th and you will be registered automatically.

      You only have a few days left folks by the way, if you would like to participate.

      All the best,
      Harry
