Don't play on Betonline

It's a real pathetic operation. bad software poor cashouts and awful customer support. I sent for a cashout at the start of the month mind u i had to wait till a friday so that i didn't have to pay a fee for my check cashout and they waited a while to approve it then told me that it was sent out by fedex on the 6th and they would get back to me with a tracking number. i never got that number and i asked them for it on the 9th and got no response. they said that at the most it would take 7 business days and today is the 7th day and of course i have nothing and they don't respond when i ask them whats happening. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this site.

Why didn't you do your research before joining a new site?

lol wish i had of. a buddy told me that he had done some research and it seemed ok. guess that serves me right.

really sad that i had a ton of software issues that cost me a bunch of pots and they blamed it on me. told me it was my issue. such a joke of a site. i hope everyone else heeds my advice and stays away.

so i went to the live support they offer and told them my issue and they told me that since ther eis a delay they will pay me with moneygram tomorrow. i will let u know if it works out. hopefully they can at least do this. funny that they told me there is a delay when they supposedly already sent it.

I'm confident you will get your money from them one day, but I hope you learned a lesson out of this...and everything DOES seem ok, to anyone not a member of 2p2.

Hero Poker Network, which seems to share 100% of their tables with the Action Poker Network.

This is correct, and players are able to run both BetOnline and an Action skin at the same time, which has to be a major security flaw.

Re: Don't play on betonline

they sent me an e-mail just now giving me the info to go get my money at moneygram I'm going to go get it tomorrow i'll let u all know if it goes ok. if i get paid i can't really complain about this issue but the software does suck horribly and really has cost me a ton of pots with bad disconnects and not being able to sit back in on the game after it disconnected me and then dealing me a hand and not letting me raise more then the min etc... etc...

Betonline scam

I deposited $50 to see if a usa player could play. They took the money. I played 2 hands and won $4.62 . I waited a week or two and wanted to see about withdrawing funds. They said the min withdrawal was $100. So I said you want me to put $50 more in my account before I can withdraw anything. I don't think so. They closed my account with no payout. I'm gonna wait til congress passes new laws to play in the usa.

In fairness, most sites have similar minimums with Cashouts.

When there is a game going... they are the best.

I requested a moneygram for $800 after 5 est today. They are big over there about only working on payouts 5 days a week during normal business hours.

Re: Don't play on Betonline

Christ I was on Full Tilt (Ponzi Scheme) and Poker Stars (decent but shut down by the DOJ April 15, 2011) Tried to get on Carbon (per 2+2 recommendations and thier marketing) and never could even get a deposit thru western union and I tried 5 or 6 different times over a 2 month period so that told me that Carbon was a JOKE!

So about a month or so ago I downloaded Bodog and used Visa to easily deposit $100 and won pretty good for the first 2 weeks or so but never tried to withdraw and then all of a sudden I started running terrible. I was getting sucked out on by 1 and 2 outter like crazy.

So I deposited about $200+ more and over the next 6 weeks I played really tight and aggressive and got QQ busted 3 times in the same day by Fish, had my broadway sucked out from the turn by a weak flush with NO pot odds for the player. Seen runner runner happen several times for a huge 1:5 underdog to suck out. So I uninstalled the Bodog Software and went searching for another Poker Site that a USA player could feel confident about playing on.

After researching all day I downloaded BetOnline and really did not like it ... So I googled BetOnline reviews etc and just found this thread that says...

Don't play on Betonline! Christ is there NOT one PokerStars "like" online Poker Site left for USA players to pay on, or are we all just back to the brick and mortar casinos miles from our homes.

So Betonline is no good humm.... ? Thanks for your Post OP.
