      I got the free $10 or whatever it was and I am quite happily turning this into profit by grinding cash tables.
      Just got a couple of question:

      1) I am limited in stakes - this is until I deposit I assume?
      2) Does the free $10 count as the initial welcome bonus deposit or is this still available when I do my own deposit?

      Hey Jeff,

      The quote below is taken from the Coral free money page:

      How does the initial free poker money work?

      I received my free poker money. Can I really keep it?

      The money is yours, but you have to login to the poker client within 14 days of receipt of the free poker money and you have to generate at least $10 rake (= 40 StrategyPoints) within 150 days, otherwise the money will be taken away.

      Why can I only play the beginner's limits?

      If you start to play with your $10 free poker money, there is a bankroll limitation in place which only allows you to play at the limits recommended in our beginner's strategy. As a beginner you can only play stakes up to:
      • No-Limit up to €£0.02/0.04
      • Fixed Limit up to €£0.05/0.10
      • Sit and Go up to €£1
      In order lift this restriction you can either make deposit of at least £5, €10, $10 or generate $10 in rake and/or tournament fees.

      When can I withdraw my free poker money?

      To be able to withdraw you need to generate $10 of rake and/or tournament fees and you need to make a minimum deposit. Please note that you can only cash out to a payment option you used to make a deposit previously.
      Free money isn't classed as a deposit. Your first real money deposit will probably auto-activate your FDB or you may have to claim it. The best way would be to contact their support.

      You can read more information at this page.

      Regards

      Laz

      hello,

      I had free money on coral.
      I deposited on coral yesterday and I still have limited account. I asked support how to remove this and they wrote:
      Please be advised your account has been restricted from placing bets by the Trading department, this is due to a business decision on your account. Please be advised there is no means of contacting this internal department and the restriction can only be lifted at the discretion of the relevant department. You will still be able to gain access to other services such as Casino, Poker and bingo but not sport books. I do apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

      can any1 help me?

      Hey MaF1406,

      I don't think I have ever seen a more unclear support response. I can only gather that it has something to do with your sportsbook account being restricted.

      Do you have any more information or updates?

      Regards

      Laz

      Hey

      no updates, still limited by some partners.
      I cashed out and went on another site.

      hi

      i already have an account on coral from last year. last week i received an email from pokerstrategy saying that i was awarded some free money at coral, i got a link and i typed in my coral username (not screen name) there. today i got a mail titled "your money is stuck due to an error", it said that my username doesn't exist.

      so, can i even receive this money?

      Hey md46135,

      Unfortunately this applies to new accounts only. It can't be applied to existing accounts.

      Apologies
