Pokerinside.com - 'sponsorship' scam - Do NOT use this site.

The site has a very professional look to it and it's very easy to presume that this is a site like pokerstrategy
or pokersource where they genuinely do fulfill their promises of paying out no deposit bonuses or 'sponsorships' as Pokerinside like to call it.

But as I have this blog and I'm involved with a whole network of poker sites and forums I'm always on the look out for new deals that I can be affiliated with and recommend. This is not one of them.

The advertising of the $10 sponsorship is very clear, but once signed it becomes a little hazy on the steps to receiving it. But there is a 'live support button,' try clicking it and receiving any support at all is not as easy as it sounds.

After many and I mean many attempts to get through to General Support
I was told that all the sponsorships had ran out for the day and I was to come back, click claim at 12am Eastern Standard time in order to receive a bonus. That's 5am GMT.

When I got round to doing this I was told the next step would be to contact Live support again and my bonus would be issued immediately. The only problem I expected to encounter was the whole 75 attempts to get through.

You get this lovely message telling you that 'your enquiry is important to us. Please wait an operator will be with you shortly.' Two short lies.

Persistent in my ways I looked for an alternative way to contact the team and luckily at the bottom of the e-mail outlining my entitlement to the bonus was an msn contact.

Try adding the address and you will speak to a not so friendly guy called Mark who says that he has nothing to do with no deposit bonuses that's a seperate department and he is too busy 'dealing with serious players who want to deposit.'

Oh well, back to trying the support button.

When I finally get through, I'm asked for my PI username. Which I give and then I'm subjected to 35 minutes of trying to coax me into depositing.

When it's clear and apparent I'm not going to deposit and I do actually want what was advertised and what they are clearly unwilling to give I get this response. Btw 250 raked hands would mean they would be guaranteed $10 in commision before you even get $10, why bother?

Chat was cut off by general support very promptly after this.

Complete waste of my time and I don't recommend anybody to waste their time with these bunch of cowboys. Especially when there is much more efficient reputable sites out there like pokersource who deliver on their promises. Which coincidentally of much greater value, wider selection and paid out in a shorter time.


  1. lol, this site is the best! you're a donkey...
    Whining about 10$ is more then just kiddy.
    You can get up to 42% Rakebak + freerolls what makes the rakeback much bigger and you are crying about 10$? :D No problem i send u 10$ idiot... xD

  2. I went through the sponsorship process and it went smooth I had my 10$ via Moneybookers within 15min. If you are from certain country you might need to deposit first depending if a lot of players have recently steal money from etc.

  3. You even delete my comments... wow what a legit blog. If you can't take critic don't write fucking idiot

  4. no comments have been deleted at all, shows what kind of a retard u are 'HolaChekita' the comment is right there, spastic.

  5. Grinder , $10 is not the point. They do not deliver on what is advertised, full stop. The proof is in the post.

  6. oh I've got another issue. I am getting all the freeroll tickets untill august 18th 2011. They responded me that they are not my affiliate directly and therefor I could t get the tickets.

    Then why did I get the tickets allt he time from copper to gold and why the hell do i earn nibs and getting a customed paybackplan?

    trust me pokerinside and betmost is a scam.

    when I reached vip lvl 6 last month I could have a pointbooster of 550%, that makes me like over a 160k points. However, I didnt received it, so I contacted them. Betmost said that I wasnt a direct betmost player and therefor I dont get the boosterpoints. Neither could I cash out my points for money, however I can join the monthly vip freeroll and having lots of points which I cant use...... Can anyone help me to get to this people to the fbi or something?

    1. Betmost and Pokerinside work independently of each other. If you have a Pokerinside rake back plan, you don't get to cash in Betmost points or use their booster system. If you opt out of the Pokerinside plan then you can use the Betmost plan and get the 550% booster and cash in points. PI pays out weekly, Betmost would be more of a monthly plan.

  7. It's appropriate time to make a few plans for the longer term and it is time to be happy. I've read this post and if I could I wish to suggest
    you some attention-grabbing issues or advice. Maybe you could write subsequent articles regarding this article.
    I desire to learn more things approximately it!
