Re: *** Unofficial Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) Thread ***

Yes, there was a network-wide issue at the time of your post and it's now under investigation. You can follow the bug thread of the PKR forum to see how the situation develops, though the thread is filled mostly by bugs exclusive to PKR's atrocious proprietary 3D client that is not up to the network's usability standard thus far (has no auto-addon, no seat auto-centering, poor HUD compatibility, etc.), but alas it's the only MPN operator that has a public forum, to my knowledge, so it's also the best source of info about network-wide things. (To post there, one has to create an account with PKR that also serves as the forum account; but you can just lurk.)

Re: *** Unofficial Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) Thread ***

I like Betsafe but only being able to cashout via bank transfer or Visa sucks. I was under the impression that bank transfers were different from wire transfer but still got dinged 15$ cdn by my bank.

Do other skins offer instadebit or EFTs? I'll have a look but asking in case someone happens to know. Thx.

Re: *** Unofficial Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) Thread ***

My MPN account got frozen for verification, they called me on the phone and afterwards sent an email that my account has been re-opened many hours ago. Now I try to log in and the account says that I have self-excluded myself, which I have nt. Support not replying and I'm freaking out because the self-exclusions are irreversible according to the iste. Any experiences with similar issues, can they re-open it if they ****ed it up themselves?

Yes. But for the depo bonus you don't need to deposit a lot, you just pick a target that you think you can clear within the given time allotted. So it's a playthrough bonus, at least on Betsafe, idk about other skins.

Yeah, the extra bonus at PokerLoco, in absence of races, is not worth the suffering - as said above, the skin just too unreliable in terms of cashouts.

Actually there are at least one more skin that offers you unlimited bonus,and thats a better choise than Pokerloco. But you have to find the right affiliate.

Re: *** Unofficial Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) Thread ***

Hi Alex, as far as I can see, there are the following limitations on how MPN operators can promote themselves:

1. The VIP cashback can't exceed 30%.

2. The return from deposit / reload bonuses apparently can't exceed 20% of rake (except Ladbrokes when they were on the MPN ).

3. The network apparently decides the total size of promotional prize pools given to an operator (or group of operators run by the same company) to spend in a month.

But are there any other restrictions, in particular, of the frequency of reload bonuses? I thought operators were otherwise free to promote themselves the way they wanted, it's just they can't give too much to regulars because the True Value system makes a $ of a regular's rake less valuable.

Oops, apparently, the True Value system is going into the past, as per today's MPN blog post that I've just noticed, which is quite a revealing read as usual

Being a fun or exciting player to play against
Chatting and making them feel welcome, thus encouraging them to play longer
Playing a loose style – i.e. getting involved in big pots with them
Starting a new table – giving them an opportunity to play when there might not have been otherwise
Playing quickly
Doing many other things we haven’t thought of yet

You can decrease an opponent’s value by:

Abusing them in the chat – causing them to quit or play shorter sessions
Playing excessively slowly
Making them feel targeted or predated upon (for example, parasitic tactics like using a seating script to instantly sit with the fish)
Cheating against them (for example, colluding with a friend)
Playing an extremely tight style
Being a dull, unexciting person to play against
Doing many other things we haven’t thought of yet

It’s time for us to move to Level 5, and factor in everything about a player’s impact on the ecosystem.

We can then reward players far more intelligently than the industry does now, and in a way that doesn’t penalise winners simply because they are winners, or reward depositors simply for depositing.
I hope my activity at PKR forums counts as a plus I was dreaming for so long to see any poker site incorporate chat activity and timeout frequency into VIP rewards.

Re: *** Unofficial Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) Thread ***

Does anyone know how the welcome deal bonuses work on Betsafe? Like is there a downside to choosing a bigger welcome bonus or do they get released in chunks?

Re: *** Unofficial Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) Thread ***

The chunk size does depend on the bonus size, so select it carefully.

The terms can be found here.

MPN (microgaming)

I'm looking for a new pokersite but I'm very prudent now since cake poker stole 4k from me.

Can anyone who play there tell me how microgaming is ?

Is my money 110% safe?
Software?
rakeback?
Popular skins?
Max table?

Thank you

Re: *** Unofficial Microgaming Poker Network (MPN) Thread ***

110% if you choose your site carefully.
I like it some don't. Runs smooth and you can turn off animations thats enough for me.
You can get 30% + 1st deposit bonus that´s 20% + races easily. Everything else just look for aff and ask.
Big european bookmakers. Nordicbet, betvictor, stanjames etc. DO NOT take a small site if you can get 5% more rb. Not worth it imo.
Don't know prolly something like 12.

Is HM1 running on microgaming or should I be considering purchasing HM2?
