I haven't heard anything good or bad about them recently. How are they about paying?

Reason I ask is I just received a pretty interesting email from them today. They're offering 30% rakeback if your rake is > $200/mo....pretty enticing.


and lmao @ this image they have on their site...I should email them and ask permission to use it as my avatar :p

No problems getting paid from Nordic and they are pretty fast as well. Not instantly like Stars or FTP but a withdrawal to Moneybookers will take approx 48 hrs and to a US bank account 3-4 days or so.

After you have cleared the 1st deposit bonus, don't forget to go for the easy reload one:


Reload now and you will get 100% Bonus up to $200 on your deposit!

NordicBet celebrate 5 years in February and have two fantastic offers for you! Play 500 raked hands during 5 – 11 of February; send an e-mail to poker@nordicbet.com and you will receive your bonus up to $100 within short time. If you want $200 you have to play 1000 Raked Hands during 1 – 14 February.

Terms and conditions:

• This is a one-time offer. The offer can only be used one time per computer and per household.

• To receive the bonus, you must at least buy $20 in poker chips. Maximum bonus is $100 for the 500 Raked Hands promotion and $200 for the 1000 Raked Hands promotion per player.

• You can only receive one of the two different reload bonuses.

• 500 Raked Hands for the $100 bonus and 1000 Raked Hands for the $200 bonus must be played before the bonus will be credited to your poker account*.

• The reload bonus cannot be used in combination with other bonuses.

• Certain conditions apply and we reserve the right not to pay out the bonus or to withdraw the offer at any time.

• You must have received the Sign Up Bonus before getting the Reload Bonus.

• These rules also apply to other poker related bonuses, such as a signup bonus.

*To get 1 raked hand according to our bonus rules, the pot must have been raked at minimum 25 cent.

The bonus is only given on new deposits from a credit card, bank transfer, Neteller or Moneybookers. To transfer money from your poker account to the sportsbook account and then back to poker does not qualify you for the bonus. Neither does money received via “Buddy Transfers”

The $100 bonus offer is valid from the 5th of February to 11th of February and the requirements are 500 Raked Hands. And the $200 offer is valid from the 1st of February to the 14th of February and the requirements are 1000 Raked Hands

There have been an insane amount of players reporting that Nordic Bet has refused to pay their bonus after playing the required raked hands. I advise any player that is considering their Big Bang bonus to steer clear. It appears they never had any intention of honoring the bonus as not one player has reported receiving it but endless players have complained about being labeled as a bonus abuser. It appears simply clearing the bonus is abuse.

Yes, the big bang promo is a big disappointment. I have cleared half the bonus and just fired an email simply asking them if they are going to screw me or not. Waiting for a reply.

If they don't change thair minds about this they should be rogued, or at least not recommended. Seems like they didn't realize this promo was going to cost them money, which is insanely stupid of them.

Charlie, I can tell you right away if you're gonna get your bonus or not. How much have you raked halfway through it?

They told me that they would review my play and decide if I'll get the next bonus, when I have completed this one.

I think I won't since I intend to stay at the microlimits due to latent tilting. However, I don't have any problem with that whatsoever, as long as they tell me about it first.

Smart move, better safe than sorry.

There's a rumor going that you need to rake around $1000/5K hands to be sure to get the bonus over and over. For this you need to play FL 2/4 or higher and NL with blinds 25c/50c and up. They've also started giving smaller amounts to those don't rake enough(according to them). A friend of mine pays around $500/5K and gets $200 each time.

Note that I'm not defending NB in any way, I just want everybody to get the most they can out of this bonus.

This seems to only happen at Prima. Bet365, Intertops, Grand Bay and now Nordic Bet. Ask many hardcore Prima players and they will tell you horrible stories about the first three skins, now here comes a fourth. There seems to be an issue that these rooms offer raked hand bonuses but they get paid on contributed by Microgaming. A tight player is not going to generate as much revenue under this system and end up being accused of bonus abusing when it is actually the way Prima pays the skins revenue that causes these problems.

When these operators come up with promotions that are based on dealt raked hands this is going to happen over and over if they are not forced to keep their words on their promotions. It is certainly not players faults that Prima pays the skins based on contributed MGR, not dealt MGR. If the skins do not like it they need to do contributed bonuses.

I agree, how they are paid is not an excuse to not to honor their promos, even G.R which is a 5x has no problem or whatsoever paying singup bonus and you can play even lower stakes, it is a bad management not player's fault.

Yeah, i would say not recommended. BTW NL i think its 1/2
