Does Microgaming/Stan James support deposit and withdrawal via Entropay?

Also, is there a time limit on completing the bonus?

Anyway, at peak times there are over 10,000 players online at Microgaming. You can also check cash game traffic at PokerScout.Com.

If there are any specific games you want to know about just let me know and I'll jump on to have a look.

Hope this helps,

not great reviews for ipoker. Setting aside the usual 'rigged' statements there seems to be a lot of talk about pokerbots on this site. Can you comment on what the site does to combat the use of bots

I think you're a tad confused because of his SN. Stan James has nothing to do with ipoker. However, I was concerned given the huge microgaming scandal and asked some questions. It seems as though Stan James is a very reputable name, so personally I would have no issues with depositing there.

Hi Ankimo,

StanJames does accept deposits and withdrawals via Entropay. Just register your Entropay card as you would a normal credit / debit card.

The terms of the bonus was changed recently. It needs to be cleared in full within 60 days.

Hope this helps,

Jamie

Hey striiing,

I wouldn't take the reviews on PokerScout too seriously to be honest.

Every network has an awful reviews and keep in mind that PokerScout is probably the most used third party website by poker room employees. I think a lot of those reviews are just shills.

As for what iPoker does about bots; I can assure you they take action. Whether it's good enough or the exact methods they use to catch the bots ar effective, I'm not sure. Every week a few players who signed up to iPokerVIP are banned because they're bots and we are informed of it - so there is certainly some action being taken.

Every site has had it's fair share of bot scandals. Any online game attracts botters who want to cheat the system. Recently an articles have been published concerning bot rings on Merge and 888 so iPoker certianly isn't the only victim.

iPokerVIP does not represent the iPoker network and StanJames (the room being discussed in this thread) is not on the Microgaming network, not iPoker.

Hope this all helps,

Jamie

Good thinking.

If users deposit at a reliable skin that holds their funds it's a good way to ensure you stay safe. StanJames is a big name and you won't go wrong with them for sure.

Hi striiing,

Don't worry about it.

It's a bit of a curse that the first part of our name is the same as the name of a poker network.

It's supposed to be Internet Poker VIP though or something like that.

Anyway, I understand.

They are part of microgaming..the same microgaming that was involved in ripping players off for 5m dollars...so why should I all of the sudden trust this site?
09-28-2011 , 03:35 PM
Because unlike Eurolinx/Battlefield, they've been around since 1973?

Hi Byrung,

I understand you might not be Microgaming's biggest fan, but you should be more annoyed with Eurolinx and Battlefield than you should be with the network.

It's undeniable that Microgaming dropped the ball when granting operators like these access to the network, but Microgaming are not guilty of theft. They're guilty of negligence and I whole heartidly agree that there is no place for this lack of action or care in today's poker world. Safety is king.

StanJames holds players funds. The company makes the vast majority of it's income from sportsbetting and casino and there is truly no chance they would do anything underhand. It's just not worth it for them.

As Jasper pointed out, StanJames have been around since 1973 and you can learn a little more about them here.

However, I do certainly understand you might not feel comfortable on the network. If I got burned by a license on any network, I'm not convined if I'd be back myself.

Take it easy and if there is anything else you need just hit me up,

Jamie

Hey Andre,

Fair question.

StanJames simply aren't a big poker company. They're a very big sportsbook and online casino, but don't have a lot an incredible number of poker customers to cater to.

This is of course changing and they're bringing in a new poker manager very shortly. You can definitley expect the site to be updated soon.

Hi,thanks for the reply.I will be waiting untill the new manager arrives and they decide to update thier poker site with accurate and reliable information including current tournments and promotions, untill then i will not make my deposit...

Hi Andre,

That's fair enough.

It is worth noting that iPokerVIP players are not eligible for the promotions showcased on the StanJames site. The criteria to get rakeback is a low easier to achieve (and the % is higher) and our own rake race is far more rewarding than StanJames' 'The Cage' Rake Race.

There is not much on the site that should concern our customers.

Good luck when you sign up,

Jamie

Hi, I'm interested in depositing at StanJames as well.

Their site: http://www.stanjames.com/poker/Promo...g2007220112812

shows that, for 50NL, you earn 0.5 points per hand if you contributed to the pot. So if my VPIP is 25% or so, I'm earning 0.5*0.25 = 0.125 points per hand. To earn 18000 loyalty points (if I deposit $1000), I would therefore need to play 18000/0.125 = 140k hands in 60 days, which seems like a bloody lot.

Am I off in my calculations?

Almost correct. The deal isn't particuarly flattering for small stakes 6Max players.

That being said I've never heard of anyone raking much over $2k to clear the bonus in full and I'm sure there have been some 50NL players in there.

Anyway, the SB and BB are deemed as a contribution to the pot on StanJames, but don't count towards your VPIP on HEM or PT3. That should make a fairly significant difference.

Hope this helps & Good Luck,

Jamie

how long do you have to clear the bonus, and how many points do you clear at micro NL /PLO? ( if there is any micro traffic)

You have 60 days to clear the bonus from your first deposit and you can find a breakdown of how points are earned here

Good luck,

Jamie
11-16-2011 , 01:41 PM
the rake is about 15bb/100 at micro plo as a general rule, then that needs converting to points...about 1.80 in rake for each 1 in bonus (for the 500 at least)

These sites have all the stats - would it kill them to give a guide of how many points you earn per thousand hands at various games/limits? - only stars seems able to give out this info if asked...
11-21-2011 , 09:14 AM
Does this site accept players who are American but living/residing in the Philippines?
