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

Hi 888 rep.

Is this statement from another 888 thread true ? : "Cassava randomly decided they dont want to payout bank wires in usd, strictly euro from now on."

My account currency is USD but withdrawal page ( bank wire ) says " your withdrawal will be paid in € ".

Thanks

I think cashouts are getting slower. I had the slowest ever recently, took almost 3 weeks to get the cash.

I cashed out on stars too and it took 2 days

Hi,

Players (both Brazil):
tokaRaul
vauuter

They are chip dumping right now. Sitting at an empty table, raising like crazy preflop, and then folding to some min bets or 1/10th pot raises, and leaving the table.
They did this many times on different tables and stakes.
Money goes from vauuter to tokaRaul.

Now they are "transferring" money from tokaRaul to admrom007.
Same pattern. Fold to small bets leaving transferring player with few bucks or going all-in with really weird hands as long as the receiver have a better hand.

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

When cashing out from a usd 888 account to an euro bank account, is it possible to get the exchange rate beforehand? Before clicking 'withdraw'?

Made a test cashout and 888 absolutely raped me on the rate. Like 10+% loss compared to actual rate.


Also wrote an email to support, twice, they didnt bother to answer.


Will likely stop playing on 888.

I always withdraw in USD (to my Euro bank account).

You choosing that option? Don't withdraw in Euro.

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

Hello everyone,

The 2018 World Series of Poker Main Event attracted 7,874 players from around the world, including dozens who qualified via 888poker.
Of those, Denmark’s Martin Sejer finished as the last qualifier standing, ultimately placing 159th place for a career-high $57,010.

Not too shabby considering he qualified for just $109. Oh, and he got in on his first try!

For more info and comments from Martin click here.

I seen a Chilean and many different Peruvian accounts doing this last year. The Chilean was the one constant with all the dough being transferred to him/her.

Report it by e-mail to 888 and hopefully they can block any cashout on the account in question. Now that I see this happening again it vindicates why I do not play here anymore as I do not believe this site can be trusted to stop even the most basic of scams such as this without the intervention of other players.

@888rep:

my cashier looks completely different from what is linked above.

when i click on "cashier", a browser window opens and while that browser cashier is pretty, it does not allow any of the settings that the cashier you linked allows.

so what do i do?

If you email or phone support they will be able to look into your account and advise you.
If you go into the poker lobby CASHIER you will find a dropdown list of all the toll free phone numbers available or if not then contact support@888poker.com

This has been investigated and dealt with.

Just open a USD account at your bank and withdraw to that. Then convert using your bank.

It's pretty easy to set up.

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

thanks for that tip, mvp. i already took that route, but my bank is taking a 3% uncapped vig on these kinds of transactions which i wont pay.
moreover, 888 will only pay my withdrawals in euro...


i have played on this site or its skins for several years and raked 4 digits every month over extended periods of time.
it is just very disappointing as a customer to be treated like an idiot the one time, you want something from them.
i'm gone.


in regards to my mail from 8 days ago: i just received an answer. but read for yourself guys....
it would be hilarious, if it wasnt so sad.

answer to: whats your usd/euro exchange rate? can i cash out in USD?

Dear XXX,

Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.

The exchange rate you receive when you make a deposit/withdrawal via your chosen payment method is one that is determined on a daily basis and is implemented into our systems. These exchange rates are comparable with the daily commercial rates offered by banks and credit card companies.

The deposit and withdrawal rates will differ as is the case with buying and selling rates which banks and currency exchange kiosks offer. The rate you receive in regards to the payment of winnings is determined on the day your withdrawal is processed not the day you request it.

John, should you have any further questions on this issue please do not hesitate to contact us again.

I thank you for your cooperation and understanding.

Kind Regards,
Camilla
Transactions Team.

cliffs:
-its not possible to know at which rate one is going to cash out.
they decide when the cashout is going to be processed and which rate is going to be applied at that time. you are not going to know it in advance.
-the rate is "comparable" with the ones banks use (aka. we have our fantasy rate and take 10% of your cashout, WHATCHA GON DO ABOUT IT?)
