      Hi there. I referred my friend Tammy and helped her sign up.. she had to give her id and she reluctantly did and then she was asked if she could be called and she asked why first.. then she was denied her starting capital.. she was peeved.. i also referred my mom and ofcourse helped her sign up.. she had to give up her id and the she was denied her starting capital. I got to say i was somewhat emberrassed especially after wowing her with my poker knowledge in the quiz.
      Is there any changing ur minds? Please, if not for them for me.......

      Since no one has answered i can answer and try to help ;)


      Hi AdamLaw33 & welcome your girlfriend and mom to the community.

      Sorry to hear that your girlfriend and mom haven't received the starting capital, but do please bear with the support team.

      It does take a few days for them to check & verify your ID documents and to arrange for the allocation of your starting capital or to contact you if further details are required.

      Keep an eye on your emails (including any spam filter/folder just in case), the support team will be in touch with you shortly.

      Best regards,


      Pontus

      Hi Adam,

      Sorry to hear that both your mother's and gf's applications were refused, however the support team do not refuse entry very often and never without good reason.

      They (your mum & gf) can of course contact support and see if they will enlighten them on the reason why, however please bear in mind that PokerStrategy are not obliged to do so and will not if it meant disclosing one of the security aspects that it employs.

      Whilst they have been refused the free starting capital, they could of course deposit a little of their own funds to get a bankroll started, or maybe try to cash a few freerolls.

      Best regards & good luck,


      Bart

      they sometimes do misktakes like this, but I'm pretty sure you used your mothers and your gf's identity to make 2 more accounts for yourself.

      shame on you boy! :spade:

      I also had a friend who apparently received no further info after passing the quiz. Problem is, he doesn't care enough to write a support ticket. What can you do? It's nice trying to refer people, but you can't force them to be motivated. If someone was truly motivated to play they'd do it with or without pokerstrategy.

      I received my own $50 with no checks and no hassle.

      People are not motivated enough to take the time and read and get things together, I referred 48 members, only around 6 passed the quiz and a total of 3 got their starting capital but they all want to play but they don't want to spend 5 minutes passing the quiz

      People who don't even want to spend 5 minutes of their time reading those articles and doing the quiz aren't exactly the type of people you want to give $50 to play poker to..

      Well, that's generally not a helpful attitude for poker ;) Maybe you can convince him that a bit of patience is the key here?
