      Hey Slunnko,

      AFAIK, this is correct. But in my opinion, I suggest you just grind out the $5,000 because you should be winning more money if you are studying the articles and watching the videos so you can move up the limits and win more ;)
      With BRM ofcourse :)
      Regards,

      Kyle.

      Hi Slunnnko,

      You need to wager $5.000 in order to withdraw $50 + winnings.

      If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

      Good luck on 888poker,
      Hannes

      Hi everybody,

      I recently got my second starting capital to 888poker, thanks for that.
      My question is: if I make a deposit (for example: 30$), can I withdraw the starting capital + the 30$ I deposited? Or just the 30$ ?

      Hi andreaspreg,

      You still need to wager $5.000 in order to withdraw your starting capital.

      If you have further questions please do not hesitate to ask.

      1. Some1 told me u just have to be silver to withdraw the money.Is there any truth to that ,on any of the platforms?
      2.Some1 else told he got a 100$ bonus from pokerstrategy once he reached a certain amount of pokerstrategy points(he didn't say how many).Was that ever the case ?
      3.What happens if u try to withdraw a part of ur winings before u wager 5000$ ?
      4.Is there a time limit ,or once u wagerd 1$ u have the rest of ur life to do the rest ?

      Hey,

      1) You can withdraw any time, as long as you fulfil the cashout policy.
      2) We had something like this long time ago. When getting the starting capital at 888poker, you can now get a $300 bonus.
      3) You need to wager $5,000, otherwise you cannot withdraw anything.
      4) There is no time limit for the $5.000 wager restriction.

      If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

      Best regards,
      Hannes

      Have one more question .I asked 888 how much money I have wagered via their website.The website gave me an inquiry number but I did not recive any emails from them telling me 'they received ...blablabla... and they will answer me later'.
      Is there any other way to contact 888 support other than the website ?

      Ask them on chat how much you have wagered unless you want to wait 5 days for an answer.

      888 support is very weak. I asked them if it's considered a 100bb wager or a 1bb wager if I go all-in and no one calls and they told me it's considered a 100bb wager which is wrong. Then I went all in a few times, no one called and the next day when I asked how much I have wagered it was only a little more than the previous day.

      ya ... i was thinking about the chat but i didnt find it.anyway 888 does not email to inform they received your question,they just email u in a day or so with the answer :
      "... the wager you have now is 3043.21 USD. You can check the amount of wagering you have completed by the amount of Bonus Points that you have received. For every $10 you wager, you receive 1 point. When you receive a bonus please check the number of total points you currently have, and how much wagering is required. Please note that any cash out that includes the bonus amount will be subject to the wagering criteria."
      PS: if any1 knows thats not true pls tell me!
      Also i will be gold soon engough and i only have like 200$ .Does that usually happen or am i an exception ?

      Hello dividead,

      As far as I know the information is wrong. You receive for every $ rake 2 status points.

      We will ask 888poker.

      Guys,

      This looks like a typical "casino member" predefined support response to me, so forget the details about accumulating status points from that post as casino and poker are a different animal as we all know...

      For poker:


      $1 rake = 2 status points, $10 rake = 20 status points etc.

      So to wrap it up - it's a conversion rate of 1:2 (rake/SP's)

      This is for ALL statuses from blue to VIP Diamond


      Thereafter you got the status points to reward points conversion table, which you can review on the website:


      http://www.888poker.com/rewards/statuses-overview.htm



      Hope this clarifies all your questions.


      Greetings!

      So basically, it's no difference whether I have 100$ or none, I can't cash out the money above the 50$ bonus if i haven't wagerered 5000$ ?

      ather question: if you deposit something, i don't know, lets say 20$, you can cashout the money you have above 50$ + the money, you have deposited ?

      thanks.

      i used to have lots of questions about this site

      1 : can i withdraw the initial $50 ? No(unless u wager $5000 already)
      2 : if say my bankroll @ that site is $250 , can i withdraw the 200 i win ? Yes i managed to withdraw , but its only after linking my account with moneybookers , which require me to deposit USD30 before i can withdraw.
      3 : should i withdraw excess above 50 ?

      Definitely your choice , but the $50 is insignificant to the amount u can win if u play well there . Since the $50 isn't really yours , u won't be playing on scared money ( provided you do a proper bankroll management)

      i withdrew USD 100 to test , it took them a few days for them to transfer to my account , but they did. ( so in essence i withdrew my initial $30i deposited and 70 from the site winnings )

      Thank you for your answer.

      The conditions have been changed. In order to withdraw $50 + winnings you need to wager $5,000.

      Best regards,
