      im sorry for making new thread as there are 100s of them about ID check, but I didnt passed an ID check and i dont know why as I send my copy of passport at first and I realized that it could be all about my country as im lithuanian but i live in UK and now i sent them proof of my adress and another copy of passport, my question is Will they check my ID again or I rather give up about my free starting capital? :)

      Thank you

      Hello gbern25,

      As my colleague, JustKyle88, has mentioned in reply to your previous post on the subject it definatey wouldn't have anything to do with your nationality.

      Did the ID you sent to us match up with the address that you registered on your your account with us?

      Are you sure you have entered all your details correct on your poker platform, and on your profile page? Please remember that you have to put the name of your account here:
      Also make sure that you enter the PokerStrategy bonus/marketing code otherwise your account wont be linked and the money wont be transferred and then you would have to choice a different poker platform?

      PokerStrategy do reserve the right to refuse providing the $50 starting capital, but would only do so with good reason, e.g. if you fail the quiz, fail to pass the ID check, have applied on multiple occasions or for legal reasons (U.S. resident) etc. The vast majority of applications are successful.

      Moderators do not have access to your details for your own safety/security and so I cannot tell why exactly you were refused and the customer support team may choose to not provide a detailed reason if it meant giving away some of the security measures that it is required to undertake. I would however suggest contacting them again to explain your concerns and to see if they are happy to provide you with more details on their decision.

      I hope this reassures you a little, we really are a very friendly community here and would really welcome you with open arms if you chose to stay and are able to sort out the starting capital or deposited a little money yourself.

      Kind Regards,
