I am not familiar with how it works at the higher levels but when it settles down we will know more about whether its good or bad.  Well done on getting them prizes from the scratchcards.  All I got was casino bonuses, a $10 free bet which had to be wagered even had I won and a bonus that I had to wager money to unlock and then wager again to withdraw.  I dont want to sound ungrateful for the bonuses but the wagering requirements are excessive imo.  When I was on Paddypower if they gave me any bonus to unlock it for withdrawal all I had to do is half on red half on black avoid 0 moneys mine.


I am sure they will move the level 100 game up higher in near future and now that I am close to the level I bet it will be before I can play 1.  Thats what happened the last time just as I achieved the status required.  They then had to let everyone play one and setup a new one so the lack of info cost them $10000.  Will be interesting to see if they have learned anything from it.  And from this latest change happening without any notice I think the answer is nope.


I play the level 60 and level 80 games and dont find them to be crapshoots.  The level 40 and 50 games are because 888 changed the blind structure.  This super turbo approach has cost 888 alot of good poker players but it also has increased the number of inexperienced players.  I remember when 888 had normal and turbo versions of the double up games and $20, $50 and $100 games were routinely running many tables but now there is barely a $10 table running and i have only once in last 2 years seen a $20 game run.


Some like this and say more fish and some will say poorer standard of poker.


As long as its profitable for 888 they will keep following this dumb model.

Just been reading about this on 2plus2 on 888s official thread and just like you said Rhonda the higher levels seem to be getting screwed.  The way this seems to work I want to remain a crap poker player and get rewarded for itWink.

Got to level 85 and my scratchcard was play 50 raked hands for 5 dollars bonus errrr nah i dont play cash table pretty much ever plus what kind of bonus is that anyway shove it up your arse 888 .
ive read about people getting 10-100 dollars regular in those all ive ever got is like 1-5 dollars and i didnt even get the scratchcards for the 1st few times i moved up 5 levels and nope im not complaining just making a point cater to your customer at least i.e a mtt unlockable bonus..

A point to add when changes lie this are made is for 888's benefit not the customer probably to pay tonka all the sponsership $$$ making stars sh*tty chests look better again.

Thats the bonus I got too.  I had to play 50 raked hands in snap or something and I thought ok gr8 Ill do it but what I wasnt aware of was that even tho I had to put alot of money at risk to unlock it I still had to then put even more on the line to cash it out.  Just silly imo and Im not joking about how easy it was on Paddypower to unlock bonuses.  The only reason I dont play poker on Paddypower is no freerolls and the software graphics were changed and traffic plummeted. 


The 888 reps and mods are always helpful and do a gr8 job but the people above them who make the decisions just dont listen to our feedback.  The chatbox being changed has been slated constantly as 1 of the worst changes ever made here but have they done anything, nope.  Solution is put an option in settings for players to choose which setup they like.  Problem solved everybody wins.


Trouble with these people in the high chairs is they only see profit nothing else matters and you mentioned stars and they are the exact same.  They assume that we want something for nothing all the time which is not true.  All I expect is when a bonus is offered to me is that I dont have to jump through hoops for 2 weeks trying to unlock it and then jump through more to cash it out.


Even tho I dont agree with the change in blind structure in the level 40 and 50 reward freerolls I do think 888 offers the best freeroll structure out there at least that I am aware of.  I played on stars and there does not seem to be any free games where you dont have to use your coins to play and even those are sattelites so there is a big plus point for 888.


One more piece of feedback for 888 In order to get more involvement on this part of the site would it be possible to include a registration option for new players when they sign up to play poker.  I think alot players dont participate here because they dont even know this exists.


Sorry about the long post m8s.

Just completed one of my daily challenges and got a scratchcard. Was a very welcome 10 dollar bonus, think though it was meant to have a couple of 0's on the end

There is alot of confusion amongst us players about whether this be active challenge is play 10 days cosecutively or not.  Can anyone shed any light on which it is.  I am hoping it is not consecutively because my broadband is hit and miss at the moment and I can barely play 2 games in the day lol. 


Company who I wont name contacted me saying they were upgrading my service to fibre power and it would be quicker.  Here I am with broadband dropping in and out after never having a single issue b4.  Thats what an update means in Ireland.

The previous ones have been any 3/4/5/6 days so I take it this is the same.

Hi m8s I passed level 100 and was due a scratchcard for clearing 5 levels.  I recieved an igoodies ticket prize through a message and not in scratchcard form.  Is this prize for something else or is it instead of the scratchcard?  Its the first time I got a ticket to this so looking forward to having a crack at it.

We are unable to access players accounts in the community so you will need to ask support. My scratchcards often take a day or 3 to arrive so if you have just gone up a level it may still be on route Smile
