Re: Announcement of the site hosting the 1st & Last events
 
Now this is just an if, but lets say we get to the first ISOP event. We're a few rounds in and suddenly RV has a big server crash like they've been known to have during large tournaments like this in the past. What will the response of the ISOP and RV be then? This would be a very bad way to start out the series. I may have been a bit harsh with my original comments due to personal problems I've had with multiple prima sites in the past, but this is my biggest worry, and its one substantiated by their past history.

Re: Announcement of the site hosting the 1st & Last events
 
honest to god, i have not heard of these server crashes and that's why i said i bet we can win you over. i don't think this is an issue anymore and if it was one, it has been solved. i'm told that the software is vastly superior to the product that prima launched with a long time ago and that not only are all the server issues fixed, but they are lightning fast. i can attest to the spped. i was playing 2 games recently (which is one too many for me, but i can handle it), and the software was so fast that i could not even keep up with that single extra table. yes, i'm a spazz and i am old.

you DO bring up a great point on crashes though. we all know that every site out there is prone to an unexpected crash and the way that will be handled will be clearly spelled out in the rules. what i can PROMISE is that regardless of the site, the tourney would be halted and that nobody is going to sit there and steal blinds. obviously the rules for a crash are more extensive than this but they will be posted with every site's landing page.

again, i can't tell you how confident we are in the site and network and i promise that server crashes are not SOP for royal vegas. give it a shot (pleeeeeeze), i want to use you as a "before and after", 1,000+ post believer after the first event is done. prima has gotten as big as they are based on this software that has developed to a superior product through continual upgrades and improvements..

there will be no problems with the server, i promise

Granny or somebody???
 
Will we be able to play from ANY Prima site or will we have to play from RV? I do have an account there but prefer TGC.

Re: Granny or somebody???
 
to play in the first event and the championship event you need to have a RVP account. i'm certain they will do a great bonus offer to coincide. tgc is not a sponsor this first year. perhaps season 2.

i *know* i can count on you to be at that first final table david. you one of the old timers here and i expect the old timers will do great in these events. i expect anyone with decent game to do great in these. there should be plenty of dead money.
(especially in any event mason might play)

As I understood it, the Prima sites strictly enforce the rule of only having accounts only on one skin. (I think it was for Prima sites that I saw a few posts about accounts being frozen for having accounts on multiple skins.) Is my memory just flaky here? If not, how will this issue be resolved?

as far as i know, this is not an issue. however, this is an operations question and i am going to let jek handle it. he may already be at a superbowl party (not much to do in s. dakota so they probably are all boozers and started drinking 3 days ago)

hopefully he will clarify this by monday at the latest.

I sent them an email asking if you could have an account at multiple Prima skins, and if you could claim the bonus at multiple skins. Here's the response:


Hi there

Thank you for your email.

You are permitted to have an account with more than 1 Prima Poker operator.
However the terms and conditions of Prima Poker state that a player may
only 1 alias across the Prima Poker network. When you register your account
with us, you will need to use the same alias that you are currently using
at your poker room.

Please be advised that you will be eligible for the sign up offer at Royal
Vegas Poker. The offer consists of free $10 which is credited 24 hours
after the account has been registered as well as the 40% match bonus up to
a $100 purchase. Please note that there is no deposit required for the $10
to be credited to your account. In order for the deposit to be credited to
your account, you will need to play an amount of raked hands which is equal
to double the purchase you make. For example if you make a $50 purchase,
100 raked hands will be required in order for the bonus to be credited.
Please be aware that raked hands from Multi table and Sit&Go tournaments,
as well as $0.05/$0.10 and $0.10/$0.20 limit tables do not count towards
your raked hand requirements.

We look forward to having you at the Poker tables.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any further queries.

Kind Regards,
Claudio
Poker Support Center



In other words, it's no problem.

How is it that there is an obvious piece of spam here and no one has commented on it yet?

Re: Granny or somebody???
 
The second key question here is the documents one. Could you please email Prima regarding this? They do not just do this regarding credit card issues, but also cashout ones as well. And when they 'ask' you for it, your account is FROZEN until you comply. I would be interested in knowing their response.
