Re: rake back

You will get into the Elite program by default. You can get Rakeback directly from ACR, just contact support and they will help you with the setup.

You can either get on live chat to have it changed or drop a PM to Winning_TD to take a look.
To further this point, "a lot" means around $7,000-$8,000 in rake per year (so around $650 or so per month). Anything below that, and being on rakeback is the better play.

Rakeback & The Beast

If you switch to rakeback do you still get money from The Beast?

Without doing the math, Im going to guess if you are going to earn enough points to compete for the beast, you are probably better off sticking with the VIP rewards.

Re: Rakeback & The Beast

The calculations I've seen show that rakeback is better until you get 100,000 achievement points... This year I am at just under 30,000 AP but the weeks I play quite a bit get a decent amount from The Beast.

Also, unless I'm missing something you're earning less on VIP than rake back until you hit the 100,000 mark which is another consideration for calculating the better option

Beast Tournament Tickets Change?

Wasn't the tournaments for The Beast for the 25 guaranteed seats for the $1,000,000? Now it's showing for The Cage? This is my first week taking the beast points race seriously, so not sure if I'm just crazy. Which is entirely possible.

Re: Rakeback & The Beast

The way I'm reading it, I get $1,150 from VIP or $1428 from RB (at 30,000 point milestone) ... If I played tourneys the VIP would be better

Beast and SNC satellites have been to the 1M gtd for some time now, but that's over. This week's leaderboards are awarding tickets to the satellites on Dec 21st.

Re: Rakeback & The Beast

Anyone know if you sign up for rakeback, can you start an account on another skin and just keep VIP on the new username/skin and rakeback on the old username/skin?

According to the chart you would get $1583.50 from VIP and $1428 from RB at 30k.

You basically cross the 27% threshold at 10k BP

That's if you take tourney bucks... I don't really like to play tourneys that much. I'm a cash grinder.

Re: Do P2P xfers activate rakeback

They don't have anything to do with rakeback. If your account is set up for rakeback, you'll get rakeback on any rake you generate, regardless of where the funds you played on come from (deposit, P2P, freerolls).

If your account is not set up for rakeback and you want it, you can email support and they will switch it(or visa versa if you're on rakeback but want the elite benefits program instead) but this is a one time only switch either way.

Rakeback, Elite Benefits, Bonuses & Depositing thread

i am trying to clear the "winning" bonus and my points earned seemed to be incorrect.

i track my rake in the "my account>transactions" tabs regularly and they just don't jive. and this has happened every time i try and earn a bonus.

i am aware that race fees and such don't count toward "real" rake and all that. and that, as a rakeback player my rake will deduct the bonus from the total before the % rakeback is tallied. Taking all this into account, the points earned are fairly far off ... again.

i've talked to support a couple times this go round and several times with every other bonus. they say they'll get IT to look at it but nothing ever happens. i can see plainly how much my total "real" rake is with their own tools. and therefore i know how many points i should have. not difficult. how do they not get it correct then?!

Anyone else have (or have had) this problem?

Frustrating. the bonus is the reason i have money on here....

Re: clearing bonus, incorrect point tallies

I am currently clearing a bonus as well. Mine only updates every couple of days, usually in a big chunk. I don't know if that is what you are seeing as well or not, though. I went from having $1 clear after a day, then it didn't update for a couple days and it was at $8, etc. Seems to be pretty accurate for mine just serious lag with update. Hope that helps.

Re: clearing bonus, incorrect point tallies

Same thing, they used to be cleared every new day after midnight. After the problems experienced by the site the last few days, I have not yet to receive any bonus. And support is acting ignorant or lack of interest in the situation

Re: clearing bonus, incorrect point tallies

im curious why i have not had bonus cash each day to release? dont it refresh daily? i have a bonus rolling but over the last couple of days I have not had the opportunity to release it daily, some days it stays at $0. any chance this has to do with the lag and connectivity issues that have been happening?
