House Rules:Tables Availability

To maintain healthy player and financial balances within the cardroom, players with weekly winnings of 750 Euros(or equivalent of) on our cash tables will see their access limited to certain tables. The status of each player will be reset at 00:00 every Sunday at which point all the tables will be made available again.This restriction does not apply to any tournaments.


I'm a big fan of Minted and it's a shame they are going down this route.

Re: Minted hates winning players too

MintedNeil, can you clarify the changes? Does it affect all tables or just some?

Re: Minted hates winning players too



This is what pops up if you try to join a table with more than 1 Italian player. It doesn't actually have to do with your player rating but rather that you've won money. Apparently they are getting a warning message when they try to join tables with players who've won money.

Re: Minted hates winning players too

For those not familiar with Minted they have a 5 Euro cap on regular tables and a 7 Euro cap on Cap tables. They also recently switched from 5% to 6%.

They do have a good promo through December 31st of max rake of $1 on the dollar tables.

I think it's about how much money you've won not your stars.

I've won over 750 Euros this week and haven't had any problems getting on any tables yet. Of course, I haven't reset my client since last night.

HM says I've only made $594 USD this week. I wonder if it's gross winnings?

Well I was just able to join a table with 2 Italians so now I don't know wtf. Maybe that's not how it's being applied.

Neil said it was a bug so perhaps we'll be able to join any table after the fix it. 750 euro is like $1k and I don't make that much a week so it shouldn't apply to me.

Re: Minted hates winning players too

We need some clarification from Neil. I was starting to point my fishy friends to the site but will definitely be recommending Merge if this doesn't revert back.

Re: Minted hates winning players too

This is certainly not limited to Minted only. I have had several students complain about this today, they play on a number of different skins.

So a bug typed this out on the website?

Re: Minted hates winning players too

OK so if this is their new policy, then they just lost a player who rakes at least 1k a week for them

No it's a bug that it's being applied to players like me and blobbloblob who've made less then 750 euro in the past week.

Re: Minted hates winning players too

They run a reduced rake promo which generally appeals to 2P2 types, and then turn around and say only fish are welcome. So now they'll just have a bunch of fish paying less rake, even though fish generally could care less about the rake. Your average fish would never have a clue how much rake they're paying.

Re: Minted hates winning players too

This is kind of brought on by minted themselves. I bet by far they are the least profitable skin with the highest % of winners by far on the network. Only a matter of time imo. I guess its better than the skin shutting down (yet).

This is nonsense. Winning players give them thousands every month in rake. They're probably the most profitable skin.

I hope the network realizes that this is just recipe for multi-accounting and chip dumping
