      This is really a good promotion for the new players.
      I am an existing player at 888.
      I understand that i cannot link my 888 with pokerstrategy?? Is that correct?
      That is a big pity.

      This is totally unfair that only new accounts get tracked.

      I hope you can work something out for those of us who were tracked by PS in the past.

      Hey kimmie007,

      Unfortunately this is not possible. Accounts can only be tracked on creation.

      Poker rooms pay us a small portion of the rake generated for referring customers to them. If you are already a customer, then there is no way a poker room will give us that portion.

      Regards

      Laz

      Is the 888 still one of the partners with Pokerstrategy? I belong to the Portuguese community but I now live in an English speaking country. I can I open an account through PokerStrategy on 888?

      Hey JonhyRico,

      Provided you have never held an account with 888, then you would be eligible for all the goodies.

      Hey CustardKid,

      Unfortunately tracking is set when the account is created. It's not possible to re-track existing accounts.

      LOL what a BS.

      Start as affiliate for poker site so players join through you to get you some benefits, then cancel affiliation and f+ck players up, wait a year for dust to settle, and then repeat (afcourse without retracking previously tracked players) to get more benefits without having to reward players.

      Obv the new bussines model of PS :heart:

      Can you get tracked if you used to get tracked when 888 and PS.com used to be partners?

      Sorry if this has already been answered just wanted to clarify.

      Thanks

      Hey guys,

      This is quoted from the original post.

      Why will I not get SPs if my 888poker account was tracked previously by PokerStrategy.com?

      The previous partnership between 888poker and PokerStrategy.com ended two years ago. The new partnership is based on a new agreement and focuses on the acquisition of new players only.

      Can I register to the private PokerStrategy.com freerolls in the future (if there will be any), if my account was tracked previously by PokerStrategy.com?

      No, unfortunately you will not be able to participate in potential exclusive promotions in the future. These will only be available for players that sign up with 888poker via PokerStrategy.com after June 03 2014.

      Jup, and when PS scoups the benefits that they get to affiliate new players for 888, they will brake their agreement with the site, so they dont need to give players benefits any more. And then they will repeat the process every year or two.. This site is a scam since Korn left.

      Is there any way we can know that PS won't do this again in the future?
