Re: Marconi Cup Carnival Has Arrived
PokerStars sent me an email saying I could get $20 worth of free ring play on their sister site Full Tilt "with no strings attached" if I paired my existing accounts.
Being a greedy bastard I thought "cool" and did as they suggested.
I went into my Full Tilt account and, sure enough, there was the $20 voucher. I validated the voucher then jumped on a 5/10c PLO table and started playing.
I admit I played a little loosely but hey, how can I lose? Lost the ten bucks then went back to my account to find they had taken the money from my funds and not the free money.
Sent them an email and they said I had used the voucher incorrectly.
How it's possible to use a voucher in the wrong way they did not say so I just said "no worries, close my account".
(This is no big deal as I rarely play there anyway, not enough action.)
So I lost $10, big deal! I was more than happy to get back all of the money I thought I had lost on Black Friday.
This is just a warning so others don't get caught. If you do this "free money" thing then email them first and ask EXACTLY what you have to do to claim the $20.
It looks to me as if some of the old Full Tilt management are still in place at that site as PokerStars wouldn't pull anything this dodgey.
