Has anyone had a problem with pitbull and their free $10 bonus for signing up? I enrolled then contacted them about it and then the trouble started. I really don't care about the free $10, what scared me was their reason for denying it. Their rep said that many people had already used my IP address already to enroll. How can this be? No one from my household has access to my computer and I have never even tried to enroll there before. Is it possible that their security is messed up or there is some fraud going on using my internet info? I'm a complete moron when it comes to the net and fear a security breach somewhere. Can anyone fill me in on what's happening or if I'm a victim of some kind of fraud or something?

Sounds fishy. Have you asked them if they could research it a little bit futher? Like what address and name did they use and how could you get the bonus "many times" already on the same IP if you can only get one bonus?

Pitbull sucks. The interface is as slow and clunky as if you were using 1200 baud modems. Never heard anything good about the place.

I got the same reply after inquiring about that no-deposit bonus. They mean that many of their customers use the same internet provider....AOL, for instance. Thing is, they don't tell you about this "qualification" in the invitation they email.

House Bots....or just unimaginative players?

Started playing at Pitbull recently because of their hourly $25 freerolls. I was amazed at the utterly insane betting (numerous preflop all-ins on the very same hand with 64...72....etc....with the 64 becoming a full house by the river and beating out strong hands). The thing that made me wonder most about their use of bots, though, is the player names. Today, I played against the following, all at the same table at the same time: "Silvermoon333"..."Guppy101"..."Lucasxxx"..."Oar111".."Sheridans111".
Sounds to me like the same unimaginitive Pitbull employee trying to come up with names to fill up a table. What's with all of the triple numerals at the end? Just coincidence?

I have played the Pitbull 1:00am $100 guaranteed tournament several times. It is okay ... except that a few times (less than the minimum number enrolled, I guess?) it was immediately ended at the start. There is no minimum number of players listed, so I don't know if that was the reason.

I have never deposited, so I know I can't withdraw any yet.

I don't particularly like the small selection of ring table games.

I haven't lost money there, but it is okay to goof around there sometimes.

Thank you so much for the info, it sure eases my mind about something illicit happening to me via the internet. Having said that, I think it is petty and sleazy of pitbull to be so sneaky about their way of doing business. I don't think I'll play there after hearing so many bad things about the site. Again, thanks alot.
