Shockingly receive payout from CircleLine (Everleaf)
I get an email this morning letting me know that my withdrawl from 'CircleLine Poker' (Everleaf Gaming Network) Sept.2012 has finally gone through and been deposited in my Moneybookers
account. I was shocked!!!
For those who aren't familiar with Everleaf network, there's almost zero games happening on that site for 4-5mos. now (years?). A couple mos. ago I would login & find maybe 1 table of micro NLHE cash table & zero players reg'd in tourneys... sometimes a dozen or so in a 10cent tourney.
I downloaded & 'deposited' on CircleLine Poker quite awhile back to participate in one of those O.F.C. events (G.G.E. aka Online Forum Challenge). Prizepools were very juicy! (& goes without saying the huge number of fish in those games).
I final tabled the Freeroll > http://www.cardschat.com/f42/o-f-c-g...aments-210775/
and made a few other small cashes. Then tried to withdrawl my funds awhile later.
At first I received emails saying my withdrawal was refused due to my accepting a deposit bonus offer (which I never knew I'd even accepted ... often times on small sites I know I'm never going to be playing on (& only dep. on to play in some special event) I purposefully do not accept the deposit bonus offer due to there often being restrictions on withdrawals (ie. have to clear a certain amount of pts./raked hands, etc.).
I wrote back & forth to support for awhile, finally getting a response from 'support manager' saying that my withdrawal would be processed & that they'd remove the restriction from my account if I submitted another withdrawal (I did so on Oct.2, 2012 << a fair bit of time had already passed since my first attempt at WD).
I waited for awhile..... 'nothing'. I wrote back & promptly received an email telling me that my withdrawal would indeed be paid out but that the process was very slow and they asked if I could patiently wait.
I wrote back again a few weeks later as I'd obviously received nothing and again I received a prompt response (actually every single time I wrote to them I would receive prompt responses & promises but never a single penny).
Logging onto the site again in December, it was seeming extremely hopeless as there was almost nobody even playing on the network (nevermind the site 'CircleLine').
I wrote to them again a couple weeks before Christmas & again they responded promptly saying that I was guaranteed to be paid out (yes you heard that right... 'guaranteed'). I replied, thanking them & adding that I was sooo thrilled as I was going to be using these funds to pay for a Christmas dinner for family and would use the remaining balance to buy the kids some presents from what had been looking like a very dismal Christmas holiday.
A month later.... >>> 'nothing' (but I didn't really expect anything anyways). I wrote back to them again, letting them know I was patiently waiting for my funds & of course they responded immediately (with more promises but no money, lol).
Beginning of Feb. 2013 I write them one more email just before 'un-installing' the site from my computer. I never really had any hopes of getting paid a cent but just thought I'd send in one more email anyways.
This morning I get two emails. One from CircleLine telling me my withdrawal has been processed and another from Moneybookers telling me that there has been funds deposited in my account, lol. I was shocked! But what a pleasant surprise!
