Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I didn't say that they "vouch" for Global. I just know that for instance, if they suspect someone is using their SES service to spam individuals, they'll lock it down. If they detect any sort of Ddos attack, they'll block IP addresses. I was just stating they are very diligent in those regards. I would think that matters of "homeland security" ( illegal internet gaming act was passed as a homeland security law i think ) would be taken seriously, but who know's. I guess I could see it being similar to not being able to hold an ISP responsible for illegal activity a customer performs using their service.

As far as S3 goes, that's just their block storage solution. The only type of websites you can host directly from S3 are static sites. Global is using ec2 instances behind public load balancers, they might be using S3 for log files or other various file storage.

Agree with all you said. There is zero chance Global is flying under any radar and no venture partner is unaware of what the business model is.

What is extremely amusing is the idea that random members posting on a public forum somehow have more insight than legal teams and large public companies/regulatory agencies.

I see what you are saying, but I would also say all of those "bad" behaviors have a direct impact on Amazon servers, so therefor they care a great deal more when a server is being used for spam. If their IPs end up on blacklists, that is bad for business.

I think, although cannot prove, it is much more likely that Amazon sees it the way your ISP does as you state. We will take action when someone tells us too.

Agreed with you completely on how Global uses Amazon services, I am using the phrasing of S3 in a sloppy way to refer to any services Global might use at Amazon. Not meant for an actual understanding of how they are designed, just more laziness than anything Sorry about any confusion from my end on that point.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I've done the mail in envelopes deal. 5 envelopes at $6 each should be $30 per month.

Does anyone know if this is generally distributed at $1 per day over the entire month? Also, do you get a new email every 6 days letting you know that the next disbursement has started?

Thanks!

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Question about deposits. It says Deposit, $10 USD, Get 50K Gold coins, Free $10 and Free $10 sweeps cash. So does that mean I get $20 in playable funds along with the 50K in fold coins or is it just $10 in playable money?

The $weepsCash is the currency you can cash in for withdrawal. The gold coins can get you access to some $weepsCash games, but the fact that you your purchase is of a gold coin that has zero redemption or intrinsic value is how they are able to allow US players the ability to play poker.

Purchasing a $10 package gives you 50,000 Gold Coins and a promotional 10 free $weeps. So you have 50,000 Gold Coins to play with and 10 free sweeps to play with, not 20.

Are you getting a 500 error message when you try to log onto the site?

Some others in another thread are saying the same thing. I wasn't able to get in yesterday, but today I am fine. It sounds like all of the issues are not resolved

That looks like a 500 error msg. That is entirely on their end, although not intentional. They would have to chk the Apache logs to find the exact cause, but it is not recognizing you as being active when it transfers you to the PayPal site. Clearing the cache/cookies, etc. may have an effect, but not guaranteed. Might want to PM one of the reps here with the screen shots for them to pass on to their tech people.

Now that the minimum buy-in is 25 big blinds, maybe they'll be less harassment.
