New online player questions .. pls help

Postby cueball » Sun May 10, 2009 4:45 pm

Hi all,

I am new to this forum, chanced upon it while surfing and surprised to see many sg people in a poker community. Have been playing home games myself but would like to start playing online. However, quite confused by ps webby's explanation, hope someone could guide.

Below is a purchase limit - does it mean i can only buy 10US worth of ps deposit the first time? I read that they have bonus chips for first deposits , like even up to 100% capped. Does it mean if I deposit 500 US (on a 100% bonus capped 500US), I can get 1k in chips? Wouldnt they lose money if i immediately cashed it all out without playing?

Also below in red, what does it mean that I can cashout any amount above the deposits that you have made with any other deposit method ? If i deposit 500 us the first time using MB, and over time, say build a BR of 3k, can I cash it out all at once thru MB ?

Hope you guys can help with my queries. Thanks in advance!

You will need to start again by selecting Moneybookers from the PokerStars Cashier's Deposit Options screen.

Currently Moneybookers purchase limits are:

US $10 - minimum purchase
US $600 - maximum amount to purchase within 24 hours
US $1,500 - maximum amount to purchase within 7 days
US $2,000 - maximum amount to purchase within 30 days
What about my cashouts?
You may use your Moneybookers Account to cash out any amount above the deposits that you have made with any other deposit method. You would need to make at least one purchase with Moneybookers to be able to cashout to it.

U misunderstood how poker bonuses work. Almost no site gives u the bonus money immediately, you have to play through many hands to get the full bonus. There is also a time limit to play before your "bonus money" is gone if you do not reach the required play requirement on time. Your deposit money of course remains where it is.

PS gives u the max $50 bonus for the first deposit.

As for the question in red, what they are saying is that, if you got money in Stars through any other means, such as a transfer, you can also cash that out through MB too provided u first make a deposit with it.
