I really dislike how Amaya is handling things since it bought pokerstars. First the rake increase in some games and then the spin n goes, KOs and beat the clocks... All games that make variance higher and make people play more volume which only benefits the room. But that's not what I wanted to talk about...

Those "mega" bonus that you have to deposit 30 USD for have 88% ( Shock) chance to give you under 2$ and only 7% to give 5$. They could afford to give more away considering you're gonna pay rake with that cash anyways. Besides, why give the same bonus 2 days in a row in their calendar? It's kind of strange.

Yes unfortunately, pure businessmen bought poker. They dont care about game only about their profit. Thats the way it is. But I wouldnt complain about that promotion. You still get "free" money for nothing. You dont even have to play with those money, they are not restricted. You can deposit and then after 2 days withdraw it back with that bonus. So they cant giveaway much more there. Btw I got 2 dollars from that Smile

I am not sure what are you trying to say? Confused Well If you are bad player and want to play, sure you cant loose that money very quickly. But in this case you would loose those money even if you would get much more from this promotion... So whats your point? Big Smile

What you were expecting anyway.
It is a business and they are trying to get as much money from the players as possible.
At the end its a player's choice to participate in these promotions or not.
Smaller sites give better promotions to lure their players, but they arent doing bad either.

well if someone offer you drugs, you dont have to take it. same goes with spin&go. but obviously many seem to play spin&go, so why blame amaya. its still "your choice" to play or not to play.

i have to say regarding the deposit bonus i also feel like they kidding me. they want me to deposit but all they offer are these cheap "pokercash give away" tickets or other sh!t.
anyways, its just like in real life. if you want something (better), you have to take it your self. so if you rake alot on stars just talk to them for better offers (reloadbonus).

First of December, NOTHING. I won a freeroll ticket and this was just some announcement for that freeroll

Second of December, DEPOSIT 100 EURO ????? really, why do other people get other amounts, "TheMachine" get an offer for 30 dollar??? really amaja, nice trick, hahahah

Any way I wonder what the " " " " " " bonus " "" " " " " will be today.. deposit 300 and wager 9500 on slots? It wouldn't surprise me. We will see Question Disagree

The last deposit promo war really a joke. You have only the real Chance of 50 percent for a 2 bucks bonus. So you must pay more rake for a deposit and later a withdraw. But if you want to play some games, than it was ok a little extra cash.

Seems like the amount you have to deposit If you wanted to participate in this promotion depends on limits you usually play and how much you play. I play mostly only FR and micro and really occasionally last months, thats probably why I only needed 30$ to deposit.

There a quite a few of these bonuses' that are hard to unlock but, at the end of the day, they are still giving you free money. You are going to play on the site anyway so you might as well have something for free along the way

Nowadays, every online poker room seems to be desperate to attract and retain as many as customers possible. The situation of global online poker market has gradually changed since, I would say, around the mid to late 2000s. The 2011 Black Friday incident made it even worse.

Just don't pay for it.

See, you can lament that pokerstars are just businessmen, but they will only make money if people use their services.
They are there to make money but that can only happen all the time people keep paying out.

So, if poker players complain about stars, then they are the dumbarses

Interesting bonus differences, some must deposit $100, others only $30 to get the money. My offer was for only a deposit of $20. But with a 46% chance of getting $1 and another 46% chance of getting $2.

I got an offer to make a deposit of $ 30 a possible prize will be $ 1, most likely, I think this is ridiculous offer, and are worse than party poker, I think I will not accept any offer from poker stars, today also was a ridiculous offer Angry

Bro its all bout that damn money bro, amaya aint different, they have obligation to their share holders just like any other corporation that has stocks on the market, and those quarterly reports have to be always positive, meaning they have to be always making money, and you poor thing expect them to trow away money Big Smile its simple math bro Big Smile

Hey mobsters!

You guys got me all wrong. This promotion is called MEGA bonus. You used to have a chance to win 20 000$ if you hit the jackpot, now it's 2500$. And terrible odds of getting more than 2$.

I mean I like free cash even if it's just 1$ but the name of the bonus just doesn't fit what it actually is anymore. It's a completly new promotion with the name of an old one... Im not complaining I'm just saying pokerstars was better before Amaya.

I liked when I received those emails for the mega bonus rewards the occasional time now that was a bonus deposit $100 usd get a gtd $20 award now that was a promo but this one put $50 and only get a $1 gtd looks like stars is a bit of scrooge on Christmas to the players they will make a killing on this promo which sucks for us players who just want to catch a break once in a while
