It's a clever scam if I may say. I've signed up by many different account names, all of them follows the same pattern. Starting off, when I first registered the account, the program give me all these nice hands (AA, KK, QQ, JJ, AK, AQ...) and every hand I call or buy I hit it. the money was flowing in. then after my first cash out, all these shitty hands (62, 72,32,k2) started to show up constantly. doesn't matter what hand I call with, nothing hit for me. I lose al my money back plus the cash out amount before it even get to my bank. happens everytime.
The "cash out" process also were designed to make you lose more before the money get to your account. Why the fck does it take more than a week for them to give you your payout vs instantly when you deposit ??? hint, money come in = "good", money go out = "bad", they want to slow it down as much as possible.
The poker program is rigged in a clever way to keep the balance of cash flow into their site as much as possible. The outcome are predetermined. the newbies always are in favored so that they remain on the site. The experienced players or the people who actually win some money are repeatedly get sucked out so that they will try to win their money back, thus, still remains on the site. Someone tell me that didn't happen to them. If you have pocket Aces, they get trips, if you have AK, they beat you with A2 and so on.
The poker program is also good at memorizing your playing pattern which makes it easier to setup hands for you to lose. Let's say they want you to lose but you refuse to play and fold every hand, what do they do?? Simple, they pull up from memory, the cards that you will most likely to call and give you those hands repeatedly until you call but they give your opponent who they want to win, a bigger hand.
It's going to be hard to resist playing a pocket Jack or AK suited or sometimes pocket Aces in extreme cases only to get sucked out by a smaller pocket or a bullshit hand. you know what i mean. Also, they keep track of your earnings and if you win too much, they will make sure you lose all of it back slowly before you can start making any money again. they don't do it blatantly but if you pay attention, you will see that you can only win on small pots and loses on almost all "All-ins" doesn't matter how good your hands are.
Pay attention to everything I say here and see for yourself. Poker is suppose to be a game of chance and skills, not a fuking setup game. Don't be an idiot and give them your money.
spread the words and shut down the site. Tell them to get a day job and start making an honest living.
