      Don’t pay: play. Keep your account active with just 50 cents this month


      Hi Marek,

      It’s been a while since we saw you at PartyPoker.com. We’ve made some big changes while you were away.

      We’ve listened to our players and as a result now have fantastic new tables, a more generous loyalty programme as well as bigger and better tournaments worth $10 million guaranteed each month. What’s more, you can now choose Canadian dollars as your account currency. Visit your Party Account to find out more.

      Keeping your account active couldn’t be easier! All you have to do is log in to Party Poker and play 1 raked hand and or any MTT or STT.

      As you’ve not used your account recently*, we wanted to remind you that after six months of inactivity we charge an administration fee of 5 Euros each month. The first charge will be deducted in 15 days.
      Make sure you aren’t charged: just buy in with as little as 50 cents and play one raked hand at our limit micro-limit tables.

      Log in and play on PartyPoker now, or visit PartyPoker.com to download our latest software.

      For more information, please read our terms and conditions.

      If you have any questions regarding your account, please contact our Customer Care Team.


      Sincerely,
      The PartyPoker.com Team

      Seriously, wtf?

      Yeah, they do that. They are the only poker room which does that as far as I know..
      It's kind of a weird practice but on the other hand all you have to do is play a single raked hand in 6 months which is easy if you have money in your account. And if you don't they don't deduct anything obviously..

      Jesus Christ, first check the forum for such threads, you will see a lot of them. Second read the f*cking terms and conditions mo**on, let me give you a hint about something, you have agreed to give them 10 % of the money you will cash out if 4 months between your last deposit and cash out have past.

      also if you contact them and not just making a thread which you can already find you will see that if you say you will play again even if you don't play you will get your funds back in the next 24 hours, damn it people check first what you are signing and then don't ask stupid question...

      At least 888 Poker has a similar policy. That is apparently legal in Gibraltar. If I remember correctly Maltese online cardrooms require you to log in often enough if you don't want them to confiscate your funds.

      Sounds like someone's on a downswing
