Where did the commonly thrown around thought that these bots inhabiting these sites are actually "Russian Bots" come from? Many different people from many different countries are purchasing, using and even creating poker bots. Were Russians the first to use them or have they been found to be the most frequent users at some point?

My apologies for that, Ryan. I fell behind on some email over the holidays.

Payments for the previous month are usually paid out around the 15th.

I replied to your email directly. Please let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Happy new year

PokerStars ecosystem

Isn't casino/ side games within poker client biggest treat to PokerStars poker ecosystem? Can someone check Amaya's report how many millions of poker players money is taken that way from poker players/ tables each month?

I didn't move it, but I'd say probably because it was considered to be a quick question and/or random thought. My own thought would be that there are probably at least a dozen existing threads in Poker News, Views & Gossip where this would have been an appropriate post - not every thought needs a new thread. One thing I know for sure, this isn't the forum for a thread like that.

I doubt it, but I'd suggest you PM Mike Haven - he's the one who moved your post.

I'm sure it is possible to check their quarterly / annual reports for casino revenue.

However, it is not a reasonable assumption that this amount is "taken from poker players / tables".

What makes you think that a large percentage of their casino revenue would be used (lost) at poker tables if they didn't have a casino? I would estimate that percentage to be fairly small.

Yes, it is definitely possible to check numbers from annual report.

Doubt, PokerStars casino/ sport betting/ side games are unknown in the betting/ casino world. I guess large % of it is money what would have been otherwise lost on the poker tables and that's great impact to poker ecosystem. Greedy hypocrites!

I was going to link you to their thread, but I see you've already posted in it. I'm puzzled why you'd start a new thread in an unrelated forum asking different questions - their thread is the place for these.

PokerStars Cashout Problems

Hello,

I recently played BlackJack at PokerStarsCasino, and almost lost all my money, but in the end there was a miracle and I won about $2.5k. I played all-in a few times))

Well, now I am trying to cashout my winnings, and I made a cashout request about 18 days ago. My request is still pending, Stars Support is not responding, and I really dont know what to do. They did not block my account or anything, I am still able to deposit and play, but there are no any emails from them or any requests. Just silence. I wrote an email to Stars Support a few days ago, and there is no responce.

If you had similar issues or have any advice, please let me know.
Thank you.

Changing Address in PokerStars Account Taking weeks??

Hey guys,

So I recently permanently moved to Puerto Vallarta Mexico. I logged into my old stars account, saw I even still had some cash and tried to sign up for a tournament. Silly me, doesn't matter that I am actually in Mexico, and have moved there.

In order to play I need to send them documentation of my residence here so I sent them pictures of my passport, my lease and my power bill, but this has now been almost 3 weeks ago. and I still haven't heard anything back.

Anyone have any clue if this process normally takes this long and when I should expect the light at the end of the tunnel?

Is 64spades.com a poker skin on a network or a stand alone site?

We are having problems, because all regulated lobbys are asking us the ID estonian account ( thing we didnt know) and we have to spend 3 weeks waiting for it.

The question is, how can i play lobbys as partypoker? i thought i could play in that site but the page is banned.

There are some easy and legals procediments to can play that lobby or anothers with one have spins and goes or good hyperturbo HU traffic?

Thanks a lot!

% of online poker accounts that are unprofitable

Is there this statistics somewhere? Also, how did this number change since, say, 5 years ago?

Think about what it would take to gather that information, and you'll understand why no one knows the answer. But omni's figure is probably in the ballpark - I think I've seen estimations of 85-95% over the years. It seems like that number would have increased over time, but I have no data with which to back that up.

Which poker rooms are the easiest to win?

Which rooms have a soft field and are safe and reliable (Netbet is crap). Are the Unibet and bet365 rooms soft? Are they reliable?

Re: Which poker rooms are the easiest to win?

Aztec Poker and Pokerplex were great in terms of softness and bonuses and rakeback. Interpoker as well. Empire Poker was nice as well (they send free TVs after a while). but their yellow layout is not for everyone.

This information may be a bit out of date, but it seemed important to answer your request!

All the best.
