Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Promotions Thread

They don't give a **** about the VIP cause most of their heavy grinders have RB through 3rd party affiliates. The only ones I have seen are for TigerGaming. The eastern euros already have half my cost of living and they get RB on top of that. Better options if you're a US player imo.

Well mdroz if you don't play there why are you in this thread.

Great question.

It was August, 2011. Senior year about to get an accounting degree. I plunked $250 down on this new site called BOL and started grinding 25NL. Damn was I bad, but it didn't matter. This was when BOL was a stand alone site. Pre Tigergaming, pre bots, pre eastern euro scumbags. The games were great. Check out some of the older threads about it. Relative unknowns making 50-100k in the 10/20 games over a few months. In about 12 months I turned that $250 into 10k. 25NL to 200NL.

I never got that accounting job.

RIP BOL, I will never forget you.

Can you elaborate on the heavy grinders receiving RB through 3rd party affiliates? I'm just curious to know b/c I don't want to be missing out on this. Thanks in advance.

For a promotions thread, it seems to have died off, some strange reason.

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Promotions Thread

I regularly get emails about their promotions. They also usually have them located on their website. I will occasionally make a post about them, but I don't take advantage of most of them since I'm not usually looking to compete as a high volume grinder. Why it's not more regularly updated by Mike or anybody else I'm just not sure.

Hi Mike,

I think a promotion that would be available to PLO players would be great. Preferably a rake race of some kind. I would also love to be able to exchange VIP points for some value, preferably $$.
Thanks,
Sam

+1 million

Maybe you could divert some of that $30k monthly rewards budget for the .05/.10 and .10/.25 NLHE account sharers over to PLO players.

Pretty sure they released a statement saying you will only be able to use points for a satellite to the main on Sundays. Other than that your points are useless. Good luck at the tables

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Promotions Thread

Pretty much. This was the most recent statement about it, which didn't do anything besides piss a lot of players off.

We understand that there has been some speculation and frustration as to why we chose to modify how Player Points were traded back in August, 2019. Allowing players to buy-in with points to most tournaments seemed to serve its purpose in the past, but as we have grown, we found ourselves in the position where it began to limit our growth potential in terms of tournament offerings.

BetOnline is always looking for ways to offer a better experience to our users, and when it comes to poker, we look to offer our players some of the biggest tournaments online. To continue to grow our prize pools, we chose to reduce the options that accepted Player Points down to one, our Sunday Main Event satellites. Our main goal is that the community as a whole will benefit from the increase in new tournaments and prize pools.

Since then we released a new tournament schedule in September, 2019 that included new structures, more guaranteed tournaments and hundreds of thousands in additional guaranteed prizes every week. Our Sunday $60,000 Main Event has now been increased to $75,000 and we also offer a monthly $100,000 guaranteed tournament on the last Sunday of the month. We’ve also upped our promotional budget to ensure that the liquidity of our poker room is at an all-time high.

To this day, players still have access to points, and while they might feel they have been limited as to how they can use them, we assure you that we will continue to offer additional options in the future.

Thank you for your support and understanding.

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Promotions Thread

back to back weeks where I completed the 'missions' for the mission grinders weekly freeroll and I never received the tickets to enter the tourneys. last week I received an email apologizing for not receiving one and they would give me a ticket for this week. Of course I never received it.

It looks like most people didn't receive the ticket as there are only 12 people registered for the freeroll. The incompetence shown by bol is insane.

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Promotions Thread

Hey Mike, I have sent you a PM with lots of information about banned player "bloodywolf"s new account "BenjaminFr" 9 days ago and you haven't responded, whats up with that?
If a player who got banned after cheating people out of 6 figures comes back with a new account, shouldn't that be of a high priority?

Kind regards

Hey Vince,

I hope you had a nice weekend, I forwarded the message you sent me to the security team that day. I have not heard any information yet, but usually they investigate and then act without any prior warning to me.

I will chase this today.

Kind Regards

Mike

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Promotions Thread

I don't like the changes to the "Welcome Back" promotions you offer to players who haven't played in a while. I miss the $5000 freeroll which didn't have any requirements to enter. One of the more recent of these promotions had a bonus instead of the freeroll. Another one did have a freeroll for $10000, but you had to meet some requirements to qualify. I prefer freerolls to bonuses for this promotion.

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Promotions Thread

Mike, are there any promos in the works? Maybe a return to the daily/weekly cash rake races?

PLO cash game players have had 0 promos for a couple months and we get crushed by rake.

It seems like the writing is on the wall, as BetOnline has been slashing rewards as of late, VIP points gone, SNG leaderboards gone, rake races gone, Iron Man gone, probably more I'm forgetting, and there's been nothing to replace them. It would be nice if you offered something to the players.

Hi fossilkid93,

There are plans afoot for 2 different series and PLO promotions, also way more PKO's and bounty's have been planned for our ever growing and varied schedule.

I hope to give you more accurate details soon.

Kind Regards

Mike

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Promotions Thread

Sounds promising, hopefully the meetings are going better than those for VIP points.

In any case, I think all here would prefer to be given updates, good or bad, rather than kept in the dark and strung along like with the VIP points situation.

A return to something similar to the rake races (which actually gave PLO players a chance to win rewards) or a PLO high hand leaderboard would be nice. I played exclusively on BetOnline last year, and had several 150+ hour months to close out 2019, but so far this year have only played 100 hours total on your site and been spreading my play around a lot more because the complete lack of rewards for PLO players is off-putting.

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Promotions Thread

I completed the challenge for event 4 but haven't received any tickets for completing the challenge. There are 22 people registered already. It starts in 17 minutes and I want to join.

Edit:
It has started already and I feel like I wasted my time doing the challenges that didn't even get me into the tournament. I guess it works for some people and not others. What a joke.

Re: BetOnline.ag Poker: Promotions Thread

It sounds to me like you should be entitled to some ticket compensation to an MTT of equal value. Send a private message to BetOnline Mike to see what he suggests.
