Below, you will find the rules, stated on their website, to enter these freerolls. Even though I've been playing all month and spent more than ten dollars, I haven't received a ticket or been able to play in any of them. Upon contacting their staff, they said (on the phone, and live chat) that you must play in a ten dollar tournament. Clearly, they haven't even read their own rules. Unfortunately for me, I haven't played in anything over 5.50 because.. well, I think party poker sucks tbh and dont deposit there, so I mostly enter micro's or sometimes dabble in the occasional LIVE satty.
This isn't the first time they've done this, and it wont be the last. And I'm sure they've done it to others. If they were actually legally liable and didn't run out of a country that has super lax laws, I'd take a different approach. But I'm wondering if anyone else has run into this. I'm sure somewhere in the T&C it says terms can change, but they haven't posted any changes...... and I'm too lazy to read the entire thing to see if they need to post said changes..
anyone with more time on their hands ever read the fine print? its kind of sad but with their shitty service, i actually find myself playing more on ACR these days, even with the bots.

i think my new years resolution is now to never play on party poker again. who's with me? :P
You had to spent your 5$ withing Dec 14-21th, you typed that yourself. And then for the next one you needed to spend +5$ more during 2 weeks. I don't know what angers you here, I got some tickets and played in those without any problem (and without any success either ).
But seeing the runouts I'm getting there since summer and (now that they have allowed to download the hands history) seeing the difference between my EV winrate and actual winrate, I do feel to never play on PartyPoker ever again (sorry for this unrelated rant about RNG lol).
