      ok so i came across this site and thought i'd try my hand at poker.

      i signed up read the up for the quiz, took the quiz and passed it, a couple of days go by and still nothing.

      then i get an e mail requesting my photo i'd so i uploaded it and emailed it back, nothing for 2 days or so then i get a phone calls, verify my details and wait after nearly a week i hear nothing, so i contact support and get this back.

      Dear 33julian33,

      I'm sorry to inform you that we cannot grant you the starting capital due to the fact that you did not pass our telephone check.

      However, please let me draw your attention to our excellent first deposit bonus offers listed here:

      Poker Rooms & Bonuses

      Thanks for your understanding.

      Best regards,
      Jeff.

      +1

      At the end, the 50$ is the least this site offers ..

      dont get me wrong peeps this is great for people to start out, but some of the things that i have read just seem a little over the top, like him scanning accross his ID and then they ask for a picture of him holding his ID .. i mean come on.. seriously ..


      but if however this does work and they payout i will start reffering people, but i just have to be sure this is not one of those sites that offer you stuff and dont pay .. maybe its just me.. but i have ran into a few of these in my time .. lol

      if it wasnt the real person.. pokerstars or the other platform would pick up on it and they wouldnt get their cash anyways.. so these people would just be wasting their time ..

      I got my first AND second $50 starting capital with no serious hassles. A photocopy of a passport is not a big deal really, and yes, I've made more than $50 by grinding my own money using much of the material here.

      It was a special promotion, a few months back. I guess, since I wasn't playing any poker after blowing through the first $50, they wanted to get me going again. So they picked me out of a hat or something, and I got another $50.

      That got me addicted to poker again :f_cool:

      Now I'm borderline profitable!!

      lol

      THANKS POKERSTRATEGY!

      33julian33 i laughed when i read this post. I have been having such problems with Jeff, have sent i dont know how many mails that have basically been ignored. The starting capital is awesome but i agree the uneccesary missions that you have to go through to recieve the starting capital is hardly worth it. You follow the steps and are then told to do one thing and then another, they should just provide all info when you sign up so people know what is required.

      Hi guys/girls,

      I cannot stress enough that PokerStrategy is a 100% legitimate and well respected company and loved by it's 2.5m (probably more now) members.

      PokerStrategy sets a simple set of instructions/requirements for membership and it's free starting capital qualification. These have been determined to help protect both yourselves and PokerStrategy from potential fraud.

      Basically, the steps are their for your own protection and rather than verbally abusing the system and/or members of support team before you really get to know about this site and how it operates, I suggest that you review these steps and ensure that you have done everything required of you.

      Customer support will happily assist you in any query you may have.

      @ clarey, our Community Manager Hadi has mentioned why you are experiencing problems in the following thread, provided for your assistance in case you haven't seen it:

      If everyone can follow the instructions provided carefully and provide everything that customer support request in a timely fashion, then delays in receiving starting capitals will be kept to a minimum.

      And if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask our customer support team or for general questions moderators may also able to assist (but moderators do not have access to your accounts so cannot check specific details).

      Thanks for your co-operation and enjoy your poker and the many benefits of membership here of which the free starting capital is a very small part.

      Best regards,


      Bart

      I received my capital without any issues. I referred four friends, so far only two of the four has been asked for photo ID check..

      But I see that some people not wanting to go through with it, because neither of those friends wanted to provide it.

      I don't really see what the big deal is, but I'm kind of lax about these things too. :f_biggrin: I got myself on a junk mail (my home address) list for a bunch of gambling sites because I signed up to a site through a junk e-mail :)

      On the contrary, PokerStrategy made me let my guard down! This site is so legit, that I figured "what have I got to lose by trying the other sites?!"

      Well, actually, not much really. I get a cd-rom for some silly casino site about once a month or so, so max, about 15 seconds sorting through my mail.

      So again, why are people paranoid?

      Hi altruist,

      You raise very valid issues there and it always pays to do everything to protect your identity etc, especially when dealing online.

      Your right, you should only provide ID once you have checked and are confident that the site in question is legit.

      If some people really object to providing ID verification, then they can always deposit their own funds in the poker platform. The ID verification is primarily there for the free starting capital, but PokerStrategy reserve the right to ask as part of the terms and conditions of application of course.

      Best regards,


      Bart

      No problems with pokerstrategy.com. 50$ received within 48h, questions asked in a timely manner.
      If you're not getting the bonus is very likely in my opinion that you are doing something wrong. No disrespect intended.
      Best wishes,
