      Contacted Titan support today regarding what happens to STB when september is done.


      Me: Will Summertimebonus continue in october?
      Titan-support awnser:

      Sophia: xxx, the SummerTime Bonus will continue until further notice from PokerStrategy that this will end.
      Sophia: Since they have not given any dates yet, the promotion is still ongoing.


      Can anyone of PS confirm this?

      That would be awesome since I only joined a couple of days and didn't get 25$ rake yet!

      In the German Forum there are saying that it will continue at least for the first days of October, but no official statement has been made.

      At this time, the official version is that the STB ends on September 30th.

      Hope to get some updates soon (probably Monday afternoon). :)

      Direct from the German VIP Forum.

      Quick translation: The STB continues for October, maybe it'll be changed for November. :D

      When i ask titan support for my rake they allways say the rake + tournament fees, is the rake for the rakeback only the rake or rake + tournament fees?

      that would be all, there's no other type of rake. cash game rake and tournament rake [this includes SNGs for example]

      You just add the two and you got your total rake.

      Did I get it right? The summer time bonus replaces the normal bonus of 100$?
      Because I played half a day to reach 2500 Titan Points and when I asked for my 100 bucks they had no idea what I was talking about.

      icallwith5high: heeeeeeeeeei
      icallwith5high: hello
      icallwith5high: hi
      icallwith5high: need help fast
      Millo: I apologize for the long wait. We try to attend to all our players the quickest possible time. My name is Millo from the Online Support Team. I am glad to assist you with your concern.
      icallwith5high: hi
      icallwith5high: please hurry and gimme my bonus, I have 2500 Points :D
      icallwith5high: my pokerstrategy bonus
      icallwith5high: hurry hurry please
      Millo: Can you please be more specific, Laurentiu?
      icallwith5high: pfft you are supposed to know that the accounts created with the pokerstrategy affiliate
      icallwith5high: get 100$ bonus after reaching 2500 titan points
      Millo: I'm sorry but I can't seem to understand what you're trying to say, Laurentiu. Titan or Pokerstrategy does not have a promotion like that, or less likely, it's different.
      icallwith5high: no no no
      icallwith5high: you are uninformed

      ...
      etc. etc.
      ...

      Millo: The 2,500 points was about withdrawing the $50 initial bonus.
      icallwith5high: so I can go to cashier and withdraw 50$ or what
      icallwith5high: who needs to withdraw just 50$ anyway
      Millo: Well, it's merely up to you, actually.
      icallwith5high: aham
      Millo: For more information on Pokerstrategy's Summertime Bonus Promotion, please click here.
      icallwith5high: no you might give me a virus lol
      Millo: What do you mean?
      icallwith5high: it was a very funny joke

      That´s right.


      During the Summer Time promotion there is no $100 bonus for the starting capital. Even as a person who passed the quiz you receive $10 bonus for each $25 rake instead of $10 for each $35, and thus you are able to get more than $100.

      But, after the summertime bonus ends theres no more 10$ per 35$ rake? Because Ive only joined a couple of days ago and im playing very low limits, the most ill get with the summertime bonus is 30$.

      So is pokerstrategy going from 50$+100$ to just 50$ after the summertime bonus ends or what?

      @Nabukadnezar:

      With the old bonus system, you got $10 from your bonus for every $35 rake you produced ($35 rake = 140 StrategyPoints = approx 600 Titan Points). You would have needed to accumulate around 6,000 TP for the whole bonus ($100) to be released.

      The guy from the support was right, the 2,500 TP are a cashout requirement for the initial $50 (and any winnings derived from them).

      Anyway, as you got more than 2,500 TP, you probably generated about $140 rake, so this Sunday your account will be credited with about $55 (from STB). If next week you again generate 2,500 TP, you'll be getting another $55 next Sunday.

      And... there is really no need to be rude with the support. :)


      @Rowkilla:

      PokerStrategy has stated that even after STB ends (and nobody knows when it will end) there will be a permanent bonus for players on Titan, so you'll probably be able to get your $100 (and more) even playing micro limits.

      Hello Rowkilla

      If we discontinue the Summertime bonus after October there will be something to take its place- as to make sure no one is at a disadvantage.

      This here is a bit confusing. So if i understand this right I got 50$ starting capital and i'm collecting 350$ rake to get another 100$, but while i'm doing this i'm getting extra sumertime bonus (10$ for every 25$rake)?
