      If I got $ 50 from PokerStrategy at 888 poker is considered a deposit? so if I received money from you at 888 do i have to make another deposit?

      The Free50 money is not considered as a deposit unfortunately. You need to make another deposit.

      Hi there. Question, I have an account at 888.com but it was not set up via poker strategy. The only account i have via poker strategy is with bet365.
      Can i still play at 888.com freeroll or isnt it allowed. I also have account at Party poker but it wasnt setup via poker strategy either. Can you shed some light on this for me?

      Thanks

      Pokerbry :)

      The lobby only shows "announced" and registration doesn't open until the tournament starts! There are no entrants yet either.

      I haven't made a deposit on this site yet, only my original $50 from PS. I know I will have to deposit $30 and that is fine, is this why it is not open for me to register or is this going to be sorted? Don't want to deposit to find there is still a problem.

      Thanks!

      Sorry Bro,

      maybe you can ask the guys from 888.com if they can retrack your account.

      Otherwise there's no light, because you need a tracked account.

      If it was more than 30 Dollars it is.

      The tournament will work proper. It's a mistake, that the registration starts at the same time like the tourney. 888.com will fix that, guess, Registration is going to be available 3-5 hours before the start.

      Normally you get tracked, when you download the software through the Download Link in the Pokerrooms Sektion.

      http://www.pokerstrategy.com/888-pacific-poker/download

      You have to type the username in.

      Hi all,

      here now some information regarding the freeroll.

      1) Due to the high numbers of participants in the other freerolls, we managed to increase the number of seats to 6.000, so hopefully everyone who wants can participate.
      2) 888.com can set 2 dates of registration start. One for restricted players, and one for all the other players.
      The registration start for the restricted players starts at 6.00 GMT (6 hours before the tournament).
      The registration start for all the other players "starts" at 12.00 GMT like the Tournament, so no other player can register.

      In the Lobby you'll find the registration start for the other players. So don't be confused. If you are eligible to play the Tournament (tracked account + 30$ Deposit until the 21th of April) you're able to register from 06:00 GMT to 11:59 GMT. (but be careful: only until maximum number of entries is reached)

      PS: If you don't have an account yet, where you have deposited $30, it is your last day to do that in order to be eligible to play in the freeroll.

      Tournament is listed under Restricted Tournaments.

      Btw. How many days it takes to start showing my earned PS points from 888?

      Edit: It's already working :)
