Re: Ask us about Thailand!

Can anyone confirm if they can play on real money tables on party poker.

I emailed support and they said "I am afraid that Thailand is one of the countries where we do not offer real money service unfortunately, so you will not be able to play for real money from there. If you try to play, your account will most probably be blocked, and you will then have to go through the process of sending documents for verification, etc., in order for the account to be unblocked "

So it will probably be blocked....eh. I'm tempted to gamble it up and see if I do get blocked.

How much is involved with setting up a vpn? It always sounded a bit suspect to me.

I'm very keen on spending some time (at least 2 months) in Thailand but would need to be able to play on Party.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

been there, and it did






ok tbh it was meh, wasn't bad but wasn't good... altho the bread was possibly the best I've had in Thailand.

went to Palm beer garden tonight and was pretty similar prices to dukes but was definitely better, with some quite expensive stuff on the menu(2k baht steaks). I think dukes can def get away with medioce food because of its great location. Plus walking back to the inner city from palm beer garden I got to practice my ladyboy spotting abilities! I need some improvement before going back to Fabriuqe imo

had a plate full of pad thai w/ chicken for lunch @ some random place in the inner city for 60 baht and it was awesome. guess that tells me to start eating more thai food??

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

Ill be staying in Koh Samui for a few months soon, probably at Aumpai Luxury.

Anyone knows if its possible to use Moneybookers or Neteller Prepaid Card to deposit?

As far as i know I cant use my moneybookers account to deposit, and Neteller doesnt work in Thailand at all right?

Any major sites that I cant play on when im there?

thanks

You can use neteller to deposit and withdraw in Thailand, you just can't login on your neteller account (on neteller site I mean) or your account will get locked
but you can deposit from pokersite without any problems

I am sure they will confirm this soon

i know they deliver to our house, but that might be the closest they'll come to Kata. will probably go the extra distance for an extra 100 baht or so. I love the egg sandwiches.

pizza company also delivers, http://www.pizza.co.th/1112/frame.php?page=register

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

Miriam!

I remember you giving a short break down of areas that are cool to live in and check out in CM a while back but I can't find it now.

If you were to get a place for a short while (couple/few months) where would it be and how long would it take to get reliable internet set up in said new place?

Thanks!
