re: Poker & Carbon deposit bonus
I chatted with their live support. It turns out that the bonus code I used requires me to make 1200 points(!) before the first $10 is released. I got 200% bonus in return for the tougher clearing limit.
It took me 6 months playing 4NL to clear 375 pts... so it's gonna take me more than 18 months at this pace to clear $10! Thus for me to clear the full $100 in deposit bonus, it'll take me 10.5 years at this pace! LOL.
This plus the $15 charge for withdrawal (check is the only option offered to me) is a drawback.
Well at least I am getting 35% rakeback and the competition is bad so I'll stick with Carbon. I screwed up using a bad code to sign up.
