Manage to stumble on this site and saw this post. I just had to make an account to warn you. DO NOT

would be my advisement. They only have one cash out method at this point, and that is by check. I have requested 2 checks from their site, and the first one took 5 months to come in. The second one is currently being processed, and it has been 6 months so far. I just received an e-mail today saying that they can't guarantee that my request will be processed. Keep in mind that their website suggests that this process should take 10-14 days, obviously being a lie. With a maximum cash out of $3,000, it will take me more than a couple years to get my money out.
On a side note, I was a player who was invited to all the highest free rakeback tournaments at their site. This means I was one of their largest rake generating players. They seem to care none about their customers, not even their bigger players.This lead me to completely stop playing on their site.
If you're just looking to just play, go ahead. The competition isn't great, but it's not atrocious. If you're looking to make money seriously, steer clear. I wouldn't be shocked if I don't even see all my money, so I just wanted you to know what you would be getting into.
