so has anyone here been affected by this? I have the Betcoin BTC address in question as an input for a transaction made on 8/9. On 8/20 I received a "buy" transaction, and initiated a small "sell" transaction to test the waters. I have yet to receive the mentioned email, but will update if I do.

Re: Betcoin Poker

Couldn't you just buy coins on coinbase and then ship to a separate wallet before sending to a poker site?

"sell" transaction went through as expected...

Betcoin/SWC/etc. -> Blockchain -> (Electrum) -> Coinbase from now on

Re: Betcoin Poker

How is the rake compared to a SuperNova playing PLO on PokerStars.

Betcoin doesn't share cash game tables with anyone, oonly MTT+SNG. Betcon does not participate in Elite Benefits program (the VIP program that is a clone of PokerStars). Thus, you could never reach that Supernova equivalent level.

You'd be far better off on one of the WPN skins which offers a VIP program equivalent to pokerstars program (circa 2012) and the free rake race The Beast. In which case the answer to your question is that the games on WPN are cheaper than pokerstars for PLO grinding. Of course, the game liquidity is not that of pokerstars.

Even if Betcoin did offer the WPN cash games, which is very very unlikely to happen as they are a part of WTN, not WPN, I wouldn't recommend playing there at this time. Betcoin is, currently, poorly managed.

No NJ players? Getting an access denied on new account screen. Getting the same thing when I VPN from somewhere else.

They are sharing games with WPN who banned NJ, NV, and DE so I doubt any of those states would be allowed here either.

Re: Betcoin Poker

You would think they would at least let me bet sports. If I am using BTC it shouldn't matter what state I am in. I solved the problem in the process, 5dimes takes BTC now and is A+ rated, no reason to mess with this site.

Re: Betcoin Poker

Anybody from the states having problems playing poker on the client or the flash version?
Support changed my password so I can log in now, the website page shows my balance, but when trying to register for a tourney, it says I have no money and the wallet is acting up on the poker side. It seems to be OK on the sportsbook web page.

Ya the client keeps freezing on me - furthest I could go was to a tournament lobby upon which point I could not register. Unresponsive.

I can't believe they won't add BBJ tables to limit games... be the best place to do it. also their new revised rake schedule is better but still ****ty.

I don't know about sportsbetting, but for poker this site has the biggest donks on there period... idiots calling my open shove 100+ bb stack with 33, QJ, A4, 88... lol.

but man this site shells out some major rewards. If you can find the right deal on bitcointalk.org the cryptocurrency forum, you could get like 70% rb and just sit there all day long waiting to catch fish down a river.

I gotta let 2p2 know about this gold mine... a lot of the casino slot players come here to play a lil poker.

But there are angle shooters here too, probably 12 year olds winning a freeroll and then doing button stealing crap and hit n runs...


These are just some of the HH i have in front of me. But there's some really retarded plays some ppl make... like not playing a hand for hours and finally open shoving all in with k3 off preflop, lol.

          they say (I didn't get it last withdrawal FWIW) that they send a confirmation email to initiate a withdrawal. I'm guessing you didn't get an email? Any more information you can give? Sorry man, that sucks

          More details please?

          I mean betcoin has gotten their ssl and site tuned up pretty nicely lately. And the login for their software is no different from bovada or some other site. So it must have been a malware you contracted yourself.

          You should try posting your problem in these 2 places and you will get proper attention:

          https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=56.0

          https://www.betcoin.ag/forums

          But I highly doubt it is because of a security flaw on betcoin's part. They are no less secure then WPN

          the past 3 withdrawals I haven't received the conformation email (yes, I've checked my spam folder) and had to contact customer service to process it. Do they REALLY send them?
