A Poker Stars rep on Two Plus Two confirmed that all players will receive the welcome bonus regardless of whether a code is used: There’s a confirmed issue with the deposit code field.
From what it appears, cash out methods are currently limited to the deposit methods a player used, as well as Resorts cash at the cage.
e Check deposits cannot be cashed out until at least one e Check deposit clears. In order to register a real-money account, I had to first attempt to sit at a real-money table.
Although only in a limited launch phase, server response has been generally lightning fast, vastly outperforming existing NJ operators.
Login and payment processing requests are processed instantaneously, and geo-location issues have been practically nonexistent.
Upon attempting to sit, I was notified by the software that I must first flesh out my account details before making a deposit.
Most likely, this is a kink that will be worked out prior to launch.
Also worth noting is that players do not have to claim the entire 0 on their first deposit.
Instead, the bonus can be spread out across as many as three deposits.
There is no apparent expiration date on this offer.
