I am doing a survey of online poker sites, and I want to know if anyone has any particularly bad experiences with any of them, refusing refunds, continual crashes, or anything else.

  • Yes I have and I am out 15-20K with no recourse. They are slime, I will never play online again. – Jon Jan 27 '15 at 8:23
  • Care to elaborate @Jon? – Robbie Dee Jan 27 '15 at 11:23
  • No, beyond saying that when the port Authority act passed a number of sites just disappeared, and resurfaced with new owners and new affiliate programs. Costing me a lot of money. – Jon Jan 27 '15 at 19:09
  • I'm sorry, but I had to close this. Like you said: it's more of a survey, a poll, which is very out-of-touch with StackExchange's Q&A model. In this form, there's no way to determine what the correct answer is. – Radu Murzea Feb 6 '15 at 18:38

Some of my gripes on the few sites I've played - YMMV:


Poor currency conversion rate. Also owns Full Tilt but that has a better conversion rate - go figure.

Dreadful rakeback


Poor interface, crashy software, cashier problems, very slow support.

Full Tilt

Laggy at times


Charge for cashouts below a certain limit


Bovada: happily takes your deposit but when you cash out they want an imprint of your card, drivers license, etc.


Full Tilt - gets shut down by FBI from one day to another and all money gets locked for a year.
