Email support and tell them to switch you to a lucky account. If you're really nice I'm sure they will. you should notice an improvement immediately.

Re: Friend of Mine used to work for FTP

He told me some details...and a lot of technical jargon that I dont understand. He basically told me not to play there b/c it is not a standard fair game like you would expect.

Re: Friend of Mine used to work for FTP

I cant even begin to repeat the technical stuff he said. Bunch of programming lingo. He was high level in operations there. Although he did end up leaving abruptly over some kind of problem with management. He basically told me that ....yes it is rigged, the random deal is is set up b4 hand to make certain players win. Not on ALL hands, but on certain hands. He also mentioned something about people that work for FTP playing on the site. Mostly Med. levels. They can see hole cards too. Maybe ill get him to post here tomorrow.

BTW...not an april fools thing if thats what youre thinking

Im low limit player. Im acually up overall there. He came back earlier today and told me all this stuff. After hearing I just went and donked off my last $75 without care. Now I will NEVER deposit there again, after hearing what he told me. Basically comfirms my suspicion on FTP being unfair game especially. Even though there are winning players, he said they make it so that they dont win as much as they should. He also states even if you have an edge...they can make it so you lose over long run. He has worked there for 4 years and quit last week. Ill talk to him some more and try to get clearer details.

Re: Friend of Mine used to work for FTP

Why would they make them lose though? What about high stakes people? The pros, etc?

I guess to generate action. He didnt really get into the high stakes. I just picked him up from airport and we only talked for about 1 hour. 4 people quit there last week and I guess they are going to expose them soon. Just remember you heard it here 1st.

Re: Friend of Mine used to work for FTP

Your friend is playing the April Fool joke on you OP. He will tell you tomorrow. There is zero chance this is true. If it was rigged and he was allowed to know about it, he would have signed his life away to secrecy to be allowed access to that information. Zero chance of truth.

Re: Friend of Mine used to work for FTP

another thing, he mentioned is that they have caught numerous users with a program that can see hole cards. They did however confiscate their money for cheating, but he also siad there is a possibility of 1000s more having this program. and there is not much they can do about it now.
