Have you ever noticed how every single poker site has higher withdrawal limits than deposit limits--sometimes four or five times as high?
The idea is to make it easy for people to deposit but hard for them to get their money out if they realize poker isn't their game. Or to trap odd amounts of money in a poker account so that the poker site earns bank interest on it and not the player.
It's a scumbag practice. I know some people think everything is okay as long as it's done in the name of doing private business, but I'm not one of them. Business practices CAN be unethical and this one is.
And then there's the restriction where you have to make a deposit using a particular method in order to use that method to withdraw funds. Another scumbag practice.
Not to mention the morons at MasterCard
who don't permit withdrawals to a MasterCard even when it's a prepaid card and it's perfectly lawful for a Canadian to receive funds credits to it.
Just p***ed off that I have $120 tied up on two poker sites
I no longer want to play and can't get my money out without putting MORE money in--and risking having the sites play hide the salami with that money as well.
