    This is a new dobrosoft room. They are offering a 50% bonus that you work off by 50% of your theoretical rake per hand released in $10 increments. They put an APB at a poker portal for players with incentives and they came to play loose. These are wild games. Just a few tables going usually 2/4 5/10 and a NL game. It is owned by thegreek.com a well known sportsbook. Their cashout policy is a bit tight but not the worst, rake is standard .25 per $5 and PL NL and 1/2 games. 2/4 + are $1 per $20.

    Just a P.S. to my review.

    They have charged me $15 3 times to withdraw by neteller, this is ridiculous. My cashouts have been $100 $200 and $400 I cant imagine these transactions cost them $45. I only had $100 invested so at most my deposit fees are $5.
    Also their new update uses so much memory I cannot run it and any other program at the same time. If you can tolerate these 2 things they are starting the WSOP satilites. I cant stand when places charge withdraw fees, isnt this why there is a house advantage? You dont go to the poker room at the Bellagio and cash out and have them say "$15 fee please"

    Unacceptable PokerWorld behaviour

    That is completely unacceptable to be charged when you withdraw your funds. No other poker site I have played at does this when cashing out via neteller. I've played at PartyPoker, UltimateBet, PokerStars, PlanetPoker, TruePoker, and a host of others.

    PokerWorld also had LiveActionPoker.com send out tons of spam e-mails recruiting poker props. I signed up just to get the details of the program. I was given a list of all the other poker props and a big list of rules on how I had to play in order to get a percent of my rake back. When I posted the details of their program on another website, there were many posts from PokerWorld people that completely denied that they used props at all.

    The last time I checked their site EVERY PLAYER on there was on my prop list. It's hard to believe that there would be "lots of action" when you are sitting at a table full of people that just sit there to make money as props.

    What really bothered me is that PokerWorld keeps having people write in to these boards and claim that they don't use props at all! What a joke!

    I don't trust sites that continually lie. I don't trust PokerWorld.

    I am not an affiliate for any site and I don't care which one you chose to play on, but this bunch at PokerWorld looks mighty suspicious.

    Player beware!

    :rolleyes:

    Pokerworld and liveactionpoker and the other organization that supplied "hosts" to Pokerworld have all apparently had a falling out. PW has taken the program in house although most did not accept the new terms. At nearly 2pm ET there are 2 games going, a short 2/4 and a short quarter game. I would not worry about any money you may have there as it is backed by a huge sportsbook its just that game selection will be scarce.

    They still have at least one more WSOP freeroll for people with 1000 points as well as other promos.

    Although I am sure Pokerworld is not going anywhere many in the poker community have lost faith in this room. I am neutral since I was not involved with the falling out. My biggest downside of this place is the $15 cash out charge, the positive is the WSOP freerolls I have been playing in.

    No charges for cashouts

    PokerWorld no longer charges for cashouts via neteller or firepay. Picks up fees on Western Union deposits over $300.

    It is certainly nice to see a rep from a poker room hitting the boards. This should give a player more confidence in a smaller room when they take the time to address issues and correct mistakes.

    Stopping the $15 cashout fee is a good idea. I know it is a normal sportsbook practice to do that but I am almost positive you were the only poker room that did that. Certainly keep in touch with all the boards Alex and only good things will happen from it.
