Re: GlobalPoker explained

You can't contact these people other than email. They do not mention ANYWHERE about SECURITY for collusion, chip dumping, players being able to see opponents cards, multi accounts etc etc. You can't get info on a tourney/sng before you start. I think turbo means 10 min blinds, who knows cant tell. Beware! ThE site has a lot of early Ultimate Poker vibes. This seems like a very sweet deal for a very few people.

Hello,

You can't convert Gold Coins into $. This isn't how the Global Poker model works.

Global Poker, sells virtual currency (Gold Coins). These are virtual chips which you can accumulate and play with but they cannot be redeemed for real money.

When purchasing Gold Coins, players are given bonus sweepstakes prizes by way of “$weeps Cash”. The $weeps Cash can be used to buy into the $weeps Cash tournaments and ring games however any of these that are accumulated or won can be cashed out through PayPal as real cash prizes.

You should have both a $weeps Cash balance and a Gold Coin balance. They are not convertible from one to the other.

Hope this helps.

Can Gold Coins be used for anything other than buying new avatars?

Re: GlobalPoker explained

Saw this in the sweeps rules section of the site:

Sweepstakes/Prize Promotion Cash expires after 60 days from the date of initial issue of the Sweepstakes/Prize Promotion Cash.

Does this refer to money I deposited? Or is it something else?

I personally haven't seen any of my cash disappear and I have been on the site for 109 days since I started tracking things.

But I agree, that is an interesting statement there and I would love to hear what global has to say.

Re: GlobalPoker explained

It probably has something to do with the free $2 that they give you so you can't just keep getting the free money and cash out. I do agree that it is ambiguous and should be clarified.

MonkeyPox, I think you hit the nail on the head. Still, I agree with you I would love to see a "Global Official" account confirm that is true.

NVM: It says it next to the gold coins amount on the purchase page.

Re: GlobalPoker explained

Also be advised that on cashing out via Paypal, they make you pay the Paypal business transaction fee, which is kinda lame. Just take that into account when putting in your cashout amount.

Yes, its been a large topic of discussion through out these very forums. Global support does continue to indicate they are looking to actually solve this, my guess is by giving extra on the cashout to "cover" the fee. That way when you say "cash out $50" $50 actually shows up in your Paypal account.
