Jao Poker

What's the deal with this site people ? I hear them getting drug by forum members on other forum sites but most all sites get drug on the forums.


What's the deal ? Multi-Level marketing and affilates, etc. Is the site legit?

The only thing that I seem to not like is the $250 minimum purchase amount. Is this true ? ...or did I read into it wrong?

Jao Poker Jao Poker Jao Poker WTF ?


Thanks everyone !

Re: Jao Poker

It's an obvious pass. Better options in terms of software, deposit/withdrawal options and basically any other category possible.

No bitcoin offered and who knows about if they will payout or not. You need to be referred in order to play there. The site is never going to grow and will always be a ghost town of a few affiliates playing and trading money back and worth.

The $250 is what it costs to become an affiliate not the minimum deposit I'm pretty sure.

Re: Jao Poker

A few of the "affiliates" have been spamming one of my facebook groups. It seems to be a dodgy pyramid scheme with no actual liquidity. The consensus at the time of writing seems to be "Avoid!"

Re: Jao Poker

Thanks guys!

All I know is if you want to send ten bucks or something and play then go figure

but the $250 affiliate is another thing. You may make a ton. You may make not a ton lol

I just keep it simple.

I'm not sure what your facebook group is, but I can say for certain that it is not the only one. I've seen them spam at least a dozen facebook groups incessantly.

Re: Jao Poker

They are paying out via Paypal.

NEVER trust an unregulated gambling site that offers to pay out via a service in violation of that service's TOS.

It took at least a year for some of the regulated NJ sites to get PayPal comparability, and that's through big, well known corporations like Caesar's.

That was the most obvious red flag to me.

Prob less of a scam than them just naturally trying to get business. *Just remember: Everyone can't have $250 in their pocket at the same time Ahahahha

Re: Jao Poker

You all are funny and most are very ignorant about what Jao is offering. But, that is ok...I am happy to answer your questions.

1. They do accept Bitcoin
2. If you are just a player on the site, then it is no different than ACR, Ignition, etc with the exception that you have no deposit or withdraw fees and you can do it as much as you want.
3. There is a lot more to becoming an affiliate than $250 (and $100 of that goes into your poker account.) There is no differen between receiving rake back on Jao or any other site other than Jao is just set up differently which is better for the affiliates and gives the opportunity to earn A BOAT LOAD MORE.

Jao Poker is trash. Nobody is earning a boat load off anything as no games run on this trash site.

Re: Jao Poker

Here is a copy of the email I sent asking what documents they want to see to get verified before withdrawing money, and their response.

Basic reading comprehension failed. If you want to capture the English market then learn English.
I won't be depositing.

I follow actionashley on Instagram and she got a deal with them but it's too sketchy in my opinion. I think she's a good person with morals but this site just seems like it's gonna go down in flames

Tell her there are much better places to represent. Sites with 10-100x more traffic. Sites with payment methods that aren't likely to be shut down tomorrow. Sites that don't charge her $250 to be an affiliate. She's a mother with 3 kids... help her avoid something stupid.

Re: Jao Poker

Do any of you know much about NLOP ? I have had money on there for a while and they are in the process of changing banks or some ****. Anyways, I'm in limbo waiting for them. What really sucks is everyone seems to worry about some site all the time but when I think about it, I can't recall when I actually got ****ed by a poker site before and that is what is so depressing about NLOP. They used to be my little bread n' butter free type site and then finally win some cash on there and can't w/d it cause of this switching of their banks bs issue. It really sucks !

I lie not my ninjas: https://gyazo.com/64f9ba223b4c57a84c3651071c3ae227

Maybe some of you can help me to raise some kane or something 1st place in their $500 with damn near 1k people that night. $200 just sitting there and I cannot cash it out yet. **** !

It's easy to win on websites that are effectively play money sites...

1k people entered that 500 tourney Kahn.

There are no gifts in this world. You don't think it's a piece of cake to win $200 do you?

Giving you a chance to edit your statement so you don't sound/look so bad to others.

Re: Jao Poker

I heard an alleged story from a reliable source about the owner scamming a couple deals here in minnesota. As well as hearing other unfavorable things.

I'd stay far far far away from the site and owners

.... and it is now August 20th 2017 and the long promised store to spend your reward points is still non - existent. It's a shame because they have the power to change some of the players (and even the haters) attitudes. Why tell the players the store will be open in June ? More BS

Re: Jao Poker

Here is an example of the quality people representing Jao Poker:




This was in response to the article we wrote about their shady business practices (content theft, spam, multi-level marketing, etc). The response from Tam Nguyen, one of their biggest spammers/promoters is typical of what you'll find when they are challenged about the business model.

Furthermore, his claims are false. He seems to be saying that I/my business approached him seeking some sort of "free ****" in a "deal." This was never the case. We've been speaking out against this poker site for a few months now and finally published some negative information in an attempt to dissuade people from signing up at the next Lock Poker/Full Flush/insert failed poker site.

P.S. Jao Poker - we will now be promoting this story to a much wider audience and will work to rank our article exposing Jao Poker's shady business practices higher on page 1 of search engines. Thank you for the motivation
