Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Lol I have a math degree, but that's fine. I'm insane. Still, where is my money/response from global support? Still haven't received an Email nor have they responded on this thread.

Odd.... I been playing there for a few months and never got suck out on once. every solid starting hand held to the river....hmmmm 🤔

Sounds crazy, but I actually believe it's rigged myself. The first two days I ran hot as hell just always being on the good side of coolers and my hands always held in the big pots. I've noticed suspicious activity too like this one guy who ran hotter than I've ever see someone run up to $700 in .25/50 in two orbits. He was winning in the most ridiculous ways like 4 way all in with 98hs vs K4hh vs AAhs vs J9hs on T87hhh flop. The dude had 98hs and spikes the straight flush and goes on to spike more stuff like this. On my third day, I would lose nearly all the money in my account, going on an 8 buy in downswing in .25/.50 within an hour. And believe me when I tell you this, I was playing tight as all hell and made sure I had it before getting all in. I went all in with 77 vs KQdd on K76, turn was K, river was Q. In the next round I got all in with AA vs QT on QJ3 flop, turn 5, river T. These two hands were the biggest pots I've ever played on global poker, I was the big stack and the other player happens to have me covered every time. I mean, I've always been a live player and stuff like this happens, but something just doesn't seem right here. They have me covered and then when they get me in a big pot in a dirty way, they disappear shortly after.

Plus, I still haven't received a response as of submitting my verification 4 days ago.

People have to stay away from this site until there's an explanation to all this. It's not like there's only one crazy person complaining about all this. It's several people!

Good to know!!! Thank god I read these comments before depositing... Well i can't even deposit because when I create my account I am told to check my email for a verification and they never send it. I've tried with several emails and no cigars. Thank god though because if I would of been able to create an account and log in I would of lost all my money due to what everyting is being said here.


Get your lawyers ready and sue the **** out of them. Thank you all for letting us know how rigged this site really is. They won't be getting any of my money thanks to you all!!!!

If they tell you they are working on other options for withdrawal that's so you can keep your money with them until they go bankrupt and rob you all just like how they are doing now. They disappeared from 2+2 and from their Email Support according to most of you.

They are still paying out with Paypal. They aren't allowed to be working on other options for depositing/withdrawing while still currently paying their players out with Paypal?

You can tell global caters to a recreational demographic. If these players don't receive a cashout within a couple of days they think it's a sign of the apocalypse.
Lol, you are adorable. Do you have a problem with recreational players? Did you get 4 cashouts promptly, and then have your emails ignored? Did they accuse you of having multiple accounts as a reason for denying your cashout? Did they suggest you use an alternate email, then reply that they couldn't find your account because you used the wrong email? I went through this crap for 2 weeks. Then I posted on two different forums, and was paid that night. Just sayin'. But if you say posting had nothing to do with it, you must be right, because you are certainly smarter than I am. Oh, did I say smarter? I meant to say smugger.

There are always several or more crazy people complaining that online poker is rigged. Been that way since the beginning of online poker.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I can see how some people question the legitimacy of these unregulated poker sites..like how someone said they called out a penny player and then his fortune turned around, I honestly don't think it would be worth it for the company since they raised so much to get it running to steal your 20 bucks..i have had bad beats on rivers and I've also sucked out on rivers, it happens..ive also noticed a lot of quads..i think I've had 4 myself and 2 straight flushes, which I think is a lot for a few weeks of playing considering over 3 years of playing live I've personally seen 4 high hands like that..

Im not saying it's rigged at all, I've seen crazier things live too, (like someone getting 3 quads within 30min live), it happens...maybe the sites rng could use a closer look, but how could we get info on that?

Also the field is way too light for them to really profit off scamming us..most people seem pretty straight up to me...i mean if it was a set up, I'm sure they'd rig tourneys to where you couldn't place at all..and I've made the last payout to the 5th payout about 4 times now..

Their unlimited rebuys really kills the gameplay for the first hour imo..but I'm sure they make a good bit of change off it..just a pain..

Now I haven't done much online playing and am very skeptical of all this bad info I read about every site, even ones regulated like pokerstars.

My advice is, is your so worried about being scammed then just stop putting money into it and play live, it's more of a rush anyway with bigger payouts..or if you don't care and can afford to blow some extra cash, just take it as you spending money on a fun game with no intention of making a living of this..

I honestly can't wait till it becomes regulated in all States cause the freerolls with satellites and vacation packages would be awesome to win..

My 2 cents for the day

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Before your tear a rotator cuff throwing out all these crazy ideas, look into it. The company has filed the paperwork showing they raised 16 million dollars from investors. Somehow, your $20 is important to them. The president of the company has been an executive at publicly traded companies for a long time. It would be logical to suggest he is very well off financially. Think before you speak, this is not a Full Flush scam. They are well funded and overlay every single game just about. If they are scamming anyone, it would be the investors that put up the 16 million, not the couple of dollars from low/micro rollers.

Rigged? Show that scenario happening over 400,000 hands and you can make an argument. Easy to pick any single hand as 'evidence' and that means nada. You can rip on the company for their customer service that has gone down the ****ter the last month or so. They rarely respond here and their emails get filtered out by some ISPs. The people that have had issues with getting emails from the company have alleviated that issue when they opted for a straight generic account like Yahoo! or GMail. Two months ago someone was ranting and raving with all the proof of them scamming them because they never received emails. Soon as they sent from GMail....straight through. If you are in a state where online poker is the most evil thing on the planet, there are internet service providers that filter out emails prior to you ever seeing them.

Coincidentally enough, their customer service went down the toilet just after the Australian government banned it in Australia.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I think some need to be a little more patient with waiting for cashouts. 24 hours isn't long ... a couple days ( still fast enough ) ... a week ... big deal.. as long as you get your cash. Once it gets past a week of pending then I would start to get worried.

I think it is good that GP RCG is being questioned. Ran into and had multiple quads in a short period of time myself. Busted three rolls on countless rivers on the site. It is possible their RCG doesn't work quite the same as on other sites. Isn't their gimmick and work around for allowing US players and using PayPal ... You enter a new sweepstake each hand. How does that effect the RCG if at all ?

We as players should always question RCG. It is better to question them and be wrong then to not question them at all.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

For the nonbelievers, consider this:

How do they afford a $1000 gtd tourny every night that averages 200 players on a $2 +.20 buy-in? Any gtd tourney I've ever played their has at least a 50/50 difference on average. Meaning the buy-in's cover half the prize pool and the house meets the rest. How do they afford the daily $500 freerolls with their current player pool? Do the math and compare their monthly expenses with their income. It doesn't add up. I suppose you some will say they're ever so generously giving away the 16 mil they allegedly raised. LOL

So, where is their profit margin? They're in the business to make (or take) money. So where's it come from? They make nothing off our deposits. You put in $20 and you have exactly $20 to play with. We don't see the rake, but I've read it's 5%. With the majority of members playing at micro stakes, let's say the average pot is $20 (that's being very generous). Then the rake is a buck. $1. Think this covers the bill? Hell no. They steal from us to make a profit.

Last point I'll make is this; let's assume they are legitimate. Why aren't they on this thread providing their customers with the answers they deserve. Why aren't they responding to our emails? Wouldn't they want to uphold their reputation? It's been days.

Think about it.

Oh and btw, to the guy who told me to take some math classes, why don't you have a look at these numbers and also learn a thing or two about programming. It's extremely easy to manipulate an algorithm that puts the odds against you and in their favor.

I wanted to believe global was the real deal, but they aren't. In time, it will become evident to all. But then again, there are still people playing at ignition lol so maybe not. The only way we'll ever have a legitimate online poker room again is if the community comes together and makes a political push for it.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Good at math you say? How many 100K weekends can they do before they go broke?

Slow down and get some information prior to making wild assumptions.

https://www.vgw.co/

Here is a crazy and outrageous thought.....call the company! They filed their paperwork with the regulatory finance agencies and subject to a 90 day financial report. But hey, lets put all that aside and figure that their real goal is to take money from low stakes poker players.

As far as manipulating an algorithm...not so difficult to do, agreed. What IS difficult to do is raise money, deal with private investors, and regulatory bodies that ask the same stupid question twenty different ways. If their goal was so screw a couple of hundred poker players out of a quarter of a million dollars....they would have avoided regulatory oversight, shareholder's reports, and meddling investors. They didn't 'allegedly' raise 16MM, is public f'n record.

Think about it....it isn't that difficult.

First off, you seem to be making a lot of your own assumptions in your line of thought.

If the budget is 16 mil they can do 160, but wtf does that have to do with price of pussy in China? I mean, is that their goal? To go broke? lol

I'm not able to find a number to call, but I've sent 7 emails. 1 per day, for the past 7 days. You find a number and I'll give them a ring. Until they respond, I will remain skeptical.

I have no fear of being wrong. If I'm wrong I will openly admit it right here on this thread. You can screencap it, print it out and hang it on your f'n fridge. What I do have a fear of, is being ripped off.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Slippin Jimmy is borderline ******ed

Rake is 5% capped at $3, in a 1/2 plo game thats going to be ~200/hr in rake, so 1 table running for 15 hours is 3k, extrapolite that figure to the no limit and other games running you're looking at.. idk, at least 15k-40k a day in rake alone. People don't understand how much money rake adds up to.

Also, the rigged accusations are laughable as well. You're just ****ing garbage at poker.

However, it is very concerning that the customer service has been MIA. I requested a large cash out recently and have gotten no response in 3 days -- I believe it'll eventually go through, but with the state of online poker you really should be more proactive as to not worry players who are already skeptical, as we can see from all this autists' crying about how everything is rigged and a scam instead of accepting they're bad

And honestly I don't see myself receiving it but you sure sound confident.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

My confidence was in that the jimmy guy was ******ed, and accusations of the site being rigged is stupid.

I'm not super confident I'm getting paid but it seems more likely than not, if I had to put a number on it, I suppose I'd sell my global balance for 90 cents on the dollar if I was offered it right now.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

It's Sunday. They probably have a skeleton crew working (they are probably just getting to work as I write this). After Monday, if people haven't been getting responses or no more pending cash outs have been approved, then I'm almost certain something significantly bad happened (w/e that may be) and people should write their balance off as a loss. Sounds like bigger cash outs are taking a long time to approve which is a HUGE RED FLAG. As is, something ain't right with the radio silence and flood of longer than usual cash out approvals all at the very same time. If it's too good to be true it probably is.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

No assumptions, I read what you wrote. They do not have a 16MM budget, that was in the bank, less commissions. The fact that they have that money pretty much kills the idea that they need your $20.

The 160 weekends has nothing to do with pussy in China, but it does end the idea that they cannot afford the small dollar overlay they have, in every game right now. It was in reply to your comment, but I agree...nothing to do with pussy in China.

They are listed and easy enough to find. If you want their number, it is not too difficult to find if you look for it.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

What cannot be argued is how they seem to have disappeared off the map on this site and their very very slow response to emails. The only possible negative aspect is the recently passed legislation in Australia that bans online poker. They have offices in Malta, so that can be sidestepped, but don't know if they are having regulatory issues with it.

A simple acknowledgement from the company would sure go a long long way to quelling fears.
