Re: New Jersey Online Poker Thread

You have to be within range of other WiFi networks also that can triangulate your position. In other words, your niehgbors.

My office area in my new house is in a bad spot to receive the signal from my neighbors. But I solved that by turning on my 4g hotspot on my phone and on my verizon jetpack thing at the same time. Two extra Wifi signals. I don't connect to either of them. But the extra WiFi hits are all jt needs to see.

You can do that OR get some sort of antenna/receiver that can pick up the WiFi signals from your neighbors. Try different parts of the house potentially...such as a window that is closest to your neighbor's house. See if that makes a difference.

Thanks for the advice. When I was able to successfully be located earlier today, it was when I tried playing upstairs as opposed to downstairs. But now I'm upstairs again and it is not working. I see other wifi networks listed as available on my computer though, so I assume those are my neighbors.

Re: New Jersey Online Poker Thread

So my buddy wants to bet me 5k he can play WSOP or any NJ site from New York, bc heís in IT and says he can rig it and never get caught?

Is this possible?
I really want to bet him but heís really confident and he has an office in secaucus and says his computer goes through there from New York.

Is there a way for him to do this? Anyone ?

Iíve heard itís near impossible to play if youíre not physically in New Jersey

Can he get me a job in Secaucus? Sort of serious. I'm good with math.

I understand there have been players that have been able to play in the past due to being near the PA/NJ border. Also, players that have not been able to play due to being near the border. I do believe Geolocation have made great strides. Currently, it isn't recognizing my location and I live in Jersey so I am unable to play. The only recommendation I get from their Support is to play on their App which does work, but it's not ideal since I like to multi-table and play on my PC. Good luck if you take this bet

Iíll ask... itís a lot of Ethernet cables.. are you good with packets?

Ya Iíve heard some crazy stuff about the geolocation or whatever... I was hoping someone would come in here and know for sure if itís possible/impossible... I donít trust these it robot guys

Yes, near impossible and obviously not worth the risk either

Iím not advocating for doing it or anything nefarious... I tend to agree itís ďnearĒ impossible... thatís why Iím taking that side of bet

But my friend is in IT and thinks he can do it and I was under impression you canít. I tried to bet $100 he couldnít do it but he insists on $5k minimum bet which makes me think he knows something I donít.

The funny thing is my friend doesnít even want to play on the site and nor do I... itís just one of those IT debate type things that he thinks bc his internet goes ďthroughĒ New Jersey that he would be able to do it.

The funniest part is he wonít even attempt to do it without a minimum of 5k wagered. He doesnít even want to waste the time downloading. I said letís just make a friendly wager gentlemanís bet for no money and he refuses.

So itís 5k or nothing

Re: **The New and Official 888poker (ROW) Players' Thread**

888 Poker is dog ****. I've been playing over a month on there and they still haven't validated my identity for me to cash out. I've emailed them eight times with no response and recently wrote the New Jersey State Division of Consumer Affairs and copied 888 Poker. Guess who responded? That's right. Consumer Affairs.

Now I have to file a formal complaint because these people hold your money with zero response. No one should play on this site.

Yeah, your friend thinks that being on his company intranet is enough to circumvent geolocation detection for NJ sites. They are more sophisticated than that. I'm not up on the latest, but I think you are required to prove your location through a cellphone? Either way, they use more than your IP address for location detection.

But with that said, I wouldn't bet against him.

Thanks for response..

Ya I think he can do remote access on a computer thatís in New Jersey and do it that way. He said thereís like 2-3 ways he could do it.

I work in IT. It's unlikely he's able to consistently do this over a long period of time.

That said, for a short period like one hand or one session this is doable. Especially if he owns an office in NJ. I wouldn't make this bet.

Re: New Jersey Online Poker Thread

For the last 2 years+ I've played on the BetMGM skin and not once on the Borgata skin. All of a sudden I'm getting emails for offers on the Borgata skin that are way better than I'm getting on BetMGM. For example I got a freeroll ticket for the 50 seat into the $1060 WPT main on Borgata skin and didn't get the same offer on BetMGM in spite of earning about 5k points per month so I'm switching to Borgata. Does anyone know how to import player notes from one skin to another?

Thumbs down Re: New Jersey Online Poker Thread

PartyPoker NJ lost my business yesterday/today. They sent me multiple invites to their WPT main event satellite, which I then attempted to register to. Got a message no ticket, so I contacted customer support a few days before and was told "Everything is good on our end you're registered, come back Saturday." I follow that log in Saturday and can't register, I contact customer support again put on hold until I get disconnected no follow up call. I call back after the disconnect and talk to someone else about the issue, they tell me I'll have a response in 24 hours. I tell them I don't have 24 hours, they say the'll put a note in to have them respond in time. I call 30 minutes before the start of the game and I'm told to hold. 40 minutes later I'm told they've been having issues with that, it has to go to another department to be handled. So I figure there won't be a fix... about 2 minutes to 7 they say they've issued me a ticket to the other freeroll that starts at 7. I go to log in and register... guess what? No ticket available. Get back in touch with customer support they try to figure things out for another 30 minutes - tournament is out of late registration and told I'll get a response from the proper department. I get a response later asking me to screen shot it not letting me enter... a tournament that's been running for hours... with no late registration available. Sure that's going to happen. I let them know their own schedule and say I can't do that. Eventually today I get a message saying there's nothing more that they can do and no explanation as to why, or how it happened. My two cents, if they can't even issue a ticket correctly why would I trust them with my money?

TLDR: Poker site invites me to multiple freerolls, plays run around with customer service and doesn't allow me to register to said tournaments.

Party/Borgata/Bet MGM NJ

Sorry if this is a thread already but I canít seem to find it. Does anyone know what is up with Borgataía casino cage withdrawal method? I requested two withdrawals last Saturday and they were literally approved in 5 minutes.

Two days ago I requested a withdrawal of $3,500 and it still is pending and not approved. I donít understand how the other cashiers were rapid approved and available for pickup but now this one seems to be delayed. Has anyone else had similar experiences?

Also, admins, if there is a thread for Party NJ feel free to merge.

Thanks

I installed teamviewer on my laptop at one point and it was impossible to get geo-location to work ever again on my laptop. Not sure if that is case for you as well.
