Correction at the end of my last post: It was clear RPM and Merge were the best skin and network for me a year and a half ago.

RPM used to say it was best because of its promotions and customer service. Its promos are now gone and its customer service has been surpassed by Carbon. Joke.

There is no explanation. They simply don't have the money to give better promos. Lock leaving was devastating. Keeping their mouth shut is clearly the correct play here, even if it screams to us things are not going well.

It wasn't lock leaving only. The problem is that given all of the rakeback deals etc. none of the casino/bookmaker sites will join them cause their players will be harvest by rakeback skins. Everyone offers huge deals but no one provides fish (the only skin tha tdo this is carbon maybe).

The only big fishy site sportsbook.ag/playersonly limit access to the games for their fish...

The promotion this month is awesome. No promotions is the new promotion! Going to wait till next month then jump to another skin so I can get rakeback.

It reminds me of that South Park episode where Cartman buys an amusement park and doesn't let anyone in until he has to slowly let people in to maintain the place, then it blows up and every business starts to keep people from using their services thinking it's a great way to do business.

Network fees fluctuate. They likely have gone up recently. This would put the squeeze on some operators, not all of them, and I cannot comment about RPM because I have no inside knowledge of their financial status.

Lock was in fact the biggest culprit of this theft, except they stole from ALL Merge skins. By a massive margin Lock stole large percentage of high volume players by breaking the network rules left and right, then split to form a new network. Now, with a low margin business, they have the industry's worst customer service, don't pay promos, and are pretty terribad with cashouts. Excellent business strategy!

Besides reading their joke of a forum here on 2+2, you should read this at poker fraud alert

Carbon is in excellent shape as you've speculated, tweaked and reran some old promotions, and offered more money in said promos than previously.


Cheers,

Looks like another month with no promotions. Pretty evident they may never come back.
