Samango, and others;
I think the default is $200 each day. Could be dependent on a size of deposit thing tho.
I never have deposited at Itops. I won a bundle via freerolls
, over $300 in my heater run of early Feburary. As any sane person, I wanted to keep track of my br. At first I saw only $200 in my cashier. I knew this was incorrect. I had (still have) screenpics of my wins.
I posted and then later found my full account. All of that confusion was mostly explained with the TOS for Itops. They want to protect me from myself. It works. Each day whether I win or lose, my fresh available balance is reset to $200. I can only lose $200 per day. When I win something one day, that $200 does not change, the actual winnings will first replenish today's $200, then the rest goes into my full account. It should probably also be stated that Itops could claim to have a lower % of players who lose it all playing poker.
My own brm is much more stringent than that provided for at Itops. I get a little queasy when I drop 5% in a day. So at this point that $200 each day is something I don't worry about.
Finding my true balance is still a PITA. It seems to vary each time I look, but hitting the Balance
tab a couple of times seems to be what I remember doing to find the true total.
I don't mind this policy at all. It will prevent me from doing stupid stuff, and provide me with months, maybe years of poker. Since withdrawal options in the US are so weird, I don't even think about it. Instead I get to play games without the scared money aspect of the game screwing me up.
So, lesson here is that it is what it is, and if you are a high roller, this might not be the site you want. Perhaps moving to Europe and playing at Stars is what you really need to do.
