I have issue with Intertops promotions... they're mostly a joke and rarely return more than 5% of the rake you put into them. Their customer service is also very poor, which compounds the problem with their promotions (some of which is Cake's fault... some Intertops' fault).
With Merge opening up to US players as early as tonight, I'm really hoping US players end up getting some better competition for our business in easier deposits and withdrawals and better promotions.
I think your miss understanding what I'm saying. Below is what I said:
I do agree, without the standard RB (33% calculated using the dealt method) the promotions wouldn't be near as good.
Basically, I'm agreeing that the promotions aren't as good if you don't have, or don't factor in, Rakeback.
With Rakeback and the promotions, they add up to a good amount of money back. Below are some of the figures on these that I did quickly:
Based on the figures below you would earn:
Deposit Bonus=18%-27% depending on the game type.
Just those 3 give you 60-69% while clearing a bonus, depending on what you play. On top of that you would also earn: Gold Cards(for Ring Games), Gold Chips, and Gold Stacks. The Gold Chips/Stacks don't have a lot of value when you first start off, but they add a little and as you get to higher levels, they add even more. Also, if your a high volume player, you should earn a little in the FPP Races that they run weekly.
Based off that, you should be able to get 70%-80%+ with Rakeback. I think that's pretty significant if you have Rakeback.
The support isn't the greatest, but they do have a Poker Room rep on 2p2 that will take care of most issues you have if you send him an email.
