Then they got replaced with vouchers to spend in Ladbrokes poker shop, which was a bit annoying tbh though as I understand this was a Ladbrokes based decision? Now for the last few months there has only been freerolls for Ipads, which I have zero interest in. Seems to be all going downhill IMO..
Hey Jay_Whufc

We 100% agree! We would instigate the race again tomorrow! It just becomes a vicious circle of course...they drop the race.....people leave...rake is less....the race therefore drops further etc....ad nauseam

More people should complain! And i will make sure the Ladbrokes team see this post.
Please address your emails to care@ladbrokespoker.com

And of course you can vote with your feet and change rooms/networks for other races...we still have about $400,000 in other races .

As for May...hard to say at this point, hopefully Ladbrokes and Prima reconsider the promotions limits that are in place…..

Actually last month for new players at Ladbrokes there were 2 iPads in a freeroll and about 7 people turned up
So the value there was good at least!

Went via your site to sign up at RPM. Went through sign up, email activation and entered details etc. Attempted to deposit and was not allowed. Then had the following exchange with live support.


RPMJon: [20:32] Welcome to RPM Poker Chat Support. How can I help you today?
Brendan: [20:32] Was in the process of signing up, entered all details and verified email. I go to deposit but get a message : " You cannot initiate a deposit at this time. You do not have permission to make deposits." Why is this?
RPMJon: [20:32] Hey there.
Brendan: [20:32] hey
RPMJon: [20:33] Are you playing from Australia?
Brendan: [20:33] yeah
RPMJon: [20:33] Unfortunately we don't accept Australian players for real money.
Brendan: [20:34] An anouncement was made on 2+2 forums that you do by one of your reps which is why I signed up
RPMJon: [20:34] I apologize for that. At this time we have made the decision to not allow real money play for Australians.
Brendan: [20:35] ok

Sorry Bren. We were told by Merge themselves.

Yeah I'm not complaining about you guys, I even have a PM from RPMSeth detailing promotions etc.

Now I've signed up though, I'm not sure where I stand with other rooms. I never got to enter a dep. code but have signed up with your cookie and given all my personal details etc.

Bren you stand in good stead. You can still sign up wherever you like for rakeback. Nobody is going to trouble you with this one given you have received inaccurate information.

Let me know if you have any problems

Hiya rocky1210

IN this case "dormant" basically means if you have not played at WH in 2011

Hence this promo is a great one for all those dormant accounts out there...iPads for all

We will be putting a list of players on the site in due course (Monday most likely) and emailing everyone who is eligible then

Best wishes

fml, just a week ago signed for ParadisePoker and now there will be no race for April. Will the race be back next month?

Why is there no race, does it mean we'll get some other good promotion after the 70k races end on April 11th?

Woohoo, according to my Page looks like im eligible but will wait for the email before I start playing.

Another quick question, with regards to receiving the iPad, is it a case of as soon as the $4k is raked, or when the 6 months are up?

Thanks

Re: *** Official RakeTheRake Support and Promotions Thread ***

We will probably ask players to email us as soon as they have generated the revenue...then we will order the iPad within 60 days. The reason we have to wait is that we need to be sure that there are no chargebacks/fraud on the account.

Hey chinz

Yep that came totally out of the blue for us too. Paradise pulled the plug for budget issues.

In fact we just sent an email out about 2 hours ago advising Paradise players of the races at other rooms on the Boss Network

Such as Heaven
€5,000 Rake Race (returned 14% Extra in March!)

or InterPoker
€5,000 Rake Race (returned 28.5% Extra in March!)

I am afraid we do not know what they have planned after the 11th April as of yet.

Apologies if this has already been asked/answered, but for those of us who are participating in the February Betfair iPad promotion - will we be getting a second generation iPad (iPad 2) or a first generation iPad (no loinger available through the apple store)?

iPad 2 for everyone

we have emailed Betfair to double check but given the price is the same, it would make perfect sense to send the latest model!

Re: *** Official RakeTheRake Support and Promotions Thread ***

I noticed there's a new iPad promotion for Cereus players:

Quote:
We are giving away as many iPads as you guys can win over the next 6 months.

There are several different ways to win one and we want as many of you as possible to take one home. This is all in addition to your regular rakeback and other promotions that we offer. You wont find any other affiliate offering you this additional value so be sure to tell all your friends and family and be sure to mention it on your Facebook pages and Twitter it to the world! The potential returns are in excess of 60%!

Dates of Promotion: 1st April 2011 to midnight on the 30th September 2011

How to qualify for this promotion:
Qualification for an iPad is straight forward:

New Players
Rake Target: $3,000
Dates: 6 Months (Between 1st April 2011 to midnight on the 30th September 2011)
Prize: iPad 2

Existing Dormant Players
Rake Target: $3,000
Dates: 6 Months (Between 1st April 2011 to midnight on the 30th September 2011)
Prize: iPad 2

Eligible players: Click here for the list of eligible dormant players
(If you are a dormant rakeback player and eligible for this prize we will have sent you an email. If you are unsure, please contact us here)

Prizes: Each successful player will receive a 16GB Wi-Fi iPad 2
This is probably an ignorant question but does that mean $3,000 in rake through all six months?

Hey...not an ignorant question at all. Just means it's not clear enough so we will change it.

It's a total of $3000 (i.e. NOT $18,000 total)

Hey Spartan73

On Cereus currently not sorry. If you are able to sign up at William Hill you can get one for rake $2,000 within 6 months.
Otherwise look out for extra promotions next month

Hiya, there is no "basic rakeback" on iPoker. The network has a VIP cashback system which differs form site to site. Depending on what stakes you play etc determines what level of cashback you can get. As you would expect the bigger players will be the ones who are at the top end of the % returns
