Or maybe I'm reading it wrong?
This is from BOL's Rules section regarding the VIP points:

POP points accrue from 1st April to 31st March each POP year. POP accrued in each POP year remains valid until 30th June of the next POP year, at which point it expires and is forfeited.

The problem is that we weren't informed they were pushing it back 3 months. I recall making sure I spent the last of my points by the end of March. Because I was uniformed of the delay I still had points going into July. I would have made sure I spent those points in June if I had known this would happen. And if I hadn't done that I could have also just made sure the balance was at 0 by September 1st. Instead because I had 26,000 on September 1st and I had 29,000 on July 1st they are acting like they left 3,000 as a courtesy when in fact they put it down to 0 and didn't make it negative 3,000.

There is also no explanation in the rules that if you had points from the last year still on April 1st and spent them before June 30th, but made some new ones before June 30th that you would be deducted an equal amount to what you still had on April 1st.

They made a mess out of it with the delay and it's unnecessarily confusing. Either way the policy is stupid. There is no good reason for the points to expire.

Re: Unofficial Chico Network (BetOnline, Tiger, etc.) Discussion Thread

Looking to first time withdrawal from Betonline in the US, should I just do a check? Looking to take out 800. I get a free check a month, correct? Has anyone had issues cashing their checks? Should I go a different route? Not setup with BTC.
Edit: if you would recommend, what BTC wallet should I check out?

Thanks for the response. If I submit withdrawal Friday doe's it auto apply my 50 discount or do I need to email customer service. Also, any particular money gram store you guys like?

BetOnline and Sportsbetting accept players from the USA. Tigergaming doesn't.

Where can I sell Bitcoin for USD because I'm not going to use coinbase and risk my money. Not even through an intermediary wallet.

Thanks

Blockchain is fine, some people are just super super snug about security. Just don't leave it in there forever.

The easiest route would be Site to Blockchain.info to Coinbase to Bank. As was explained to me not too long ago, you want the extra step from site to blockchain before the exchange just because most exchanges will close your account for gaming transactions. Blockchain doesn't care so just use them as a middleman.

PS - I know it sounds like it'll take forever but it really won't. BOL processes payouts in like 24h. The transfer from Blockchain to CB is super fast (a few hours) and then CB to bank is just a couple of days.

Blows away having to wait 86 years for a check by mail and then waiting another 42 for it to clear.

Search Google for a local Bitcoin ATM near you.

Check out Apple or Google store for a wallet on your Smartphone and then send it back to Coinbase or GDAX or Poloniex

What makes Sportsbetting inferior to BOL in your opinion? I assumed they were almost the same exact thing similar to how Ignition is to Bovada.

Re: Unofficial Chico Network (BetOnline, Tiger, etc.) Discussion Thread

Does anyone else have issues where BOL tables will freeze up when trying to raise? It doesn't happen every time I raise but infrequently sometimes in big pots. This has been happening a lot lately for me in MTTs. I do use Table Tamer so not sure if that could be part of the problem. If you could include in your reply if you are using Table Tamer that would be great. Thanks.
