Postby Tank » Tue Apr 19, 2005 8:09 am

tonights macho monday and the midnight freeroll where cancelled, no reason given, plue the limits on entrants are going up, and yes they have added a new free roll I have been hearing horror stories about trying too cash out from various sourses about Pokerhost.. Is there any way too check out whats going on with them? cause tonight their on line help didn't even pick up and that is strange,,, because the rest of the games where working perfectly but we need too find out if anyone knows anyone

Poker Host only started up at the beginning of the year so they are still quite young and working out the kinks. I have been playing there almost since they went online and I have gone through their ups and downs as they improved the software. Seems quite stable now although I think their servers may need to be updated.

Never had one problem cashing out from there with my NETeller account. I made an initial $50 deposit when I first signed up with them and anytime I want to make a withdrawal, it goes through without any hassle.

Oh yeah, and they have some really good freerolls there.

Just my thoughts on Poker Host. :)

in my opinion pokerhost is a real comer ....they listen to the players and have continued to evolve the software to suit the play...they recently started to boot sitouts from tournys after the frist 5 minutes which is great cuz some of these tournys can gave 50 percent no shows ..and after 5 minutes the field has narrowed considerably...I like the points tournys and the merchandise tournys ....have a shirt and a hat

the trick to withdrawing from pokerhost is getting that first deposit over and done with.  If you win freeroll before you deposit it's considered z"promotional money" and you have to play a number of raked hands to release it.  Good play there and pretty nice freerolls

update, wudegod is very correct about making that initial deposit.  i think the minimum is actually $30.  if you dont make the initial deposit then you have to play 5 times the amount of freeroll money you acquired before your initial deposit.  you also have to play at table of $1-2 or above.  each hand played must be a raked hand.  i have also heard that ph doesnt consider a blind hand as a raked hand.  dont know if this is true.  ph also reduced the amount of money offered in their freerolls about two weeks ago.  only 50 for previous 100 and the nightly 500 is only 300.  i really like the heads up freeroll though.  i am upset that the early morning tournament is only omaha.  ph use to rotate the am from stud to omaha every other day.

you need to see the flop in order for the hand to be considered a raked hand. floping preflop even you you contributed to the pot does not count... ie BB and folding from a raise.
had a couple problems with them at first, but once i deposited/raked/ got established... no problems

,At PokerHost it is important to make your 1st deposit even if you only plan to play freerolls.  You can turn around and withdraw it all, and makes any winnings including freerolls regular real money.

The money won in freerolls cannot be withdrawn until a real money deposit is made and even then, you have to "earn" the money you have already won with raked hands.  IF you make a deposit FIRST, all winnings can be taken immediatly with no rake requirement...the key here is if you deposit BEFORE winning "promotional money"

I made an initial deposit and was able to withdraw it, and money won from freerolls without any problems at all 8)

Think these guys might also have a betting company tie. Think i heard it somewhere where you can switch money between their site and the betting company and its easy to withdraw from the betting company. Im certain it was PHost i heard this about just dont remember the betting companys name.

Poker Host in my opinion is one of the worst sites on the net! They're basically like Bank Of America....all they care about is money...they don't care about customer service unless it makes them money.  They have the most rediculous cashouts I've ever seen on a site, and by god don't ever win a freeroll there withought depositing first.  Trust me, FIND ANOTHER SITE...and NEVER PLAY THERE!

It's SBG Global Sports, Casino, Poker, you can find a link to the site from the PokerHost Software.. There are two buttons in the bottom right hand corner Red and Blue that will take you there
