WARNING!! Disappearing money on Earth Poker!
I have been able to grow my complimentary $5 bank on Earth Poker to more than $35 through microlimit ring games and freeroll tourneys. I was sitting in at the .05/.10 table last night when departed players began to return to the table and observer-chat that their Poker Money account balance had reset to zero upon leaving our table. As I was enjoying a pretty good run, I stayed in my chair until the table broke up and I was the last player seated. Sure enough, when I left the table and went to the Cashier screen to check on my funds, I was looking at goose eggs across the board.
I immediately emailed Earth Poker support, as I'm sure everyone else did who suffered the loss last night. Haven't heard anything back yet, which doesn't surprise me given the feedback I've read from others who have sought responses from this site. I haven't deposited any real money
, of course, and I still haven't directly heard anyone say they've successfully cashed out.
Just a heads-up to the Earth Poker players to check on your account balances. And monitor them going forward for similar unexplained dumps.
