What a horrible policy from pokerstars
This was in response to my email asking why I couldnt withdraw with Echeck.
Thank you for your email.
After a review of your account, we note that your last deposit with eCheck
was made on 4/21/2009. As such, more than 6 months have passed since your
last deposit with this method was made.
Please note that we have made some changes to the way player transactions
are stored on our system. Although we keep a record of all transactions,
those older than 6 months are archived in a separate database.
This means that your cashout options will be based on the last 6 months of
deposits history only. If your desired payment method is no longer available
in your cashier screen (provided it is a payment method that can be used for
cashing out) you will need to make a new purchase in order to be able to
cash out through it once again. The minimum deposit amount is enough for the
system to register your payment method as active again. Alternatively you
can choose to use any of the other cashout options available to you.
Please keep in mind that there is a 48-hour waiting period after your last
purchase is made before you are able to request a cashout. Also that eChecks
Clear after a period of 10 working days and that cashouts/ transfers of the
uncleared funds would not be permitted.
If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us again.
So basically what I am hearing here is if you are a winning player
and use proper bankroll management(and thus never go broke and have to deposit)
you will be punished.
