thezii: hi, why highstakes poker room are asking to rake specific amount(which only they now) before i can make cash out, saying that its their terms&conditions, when i asked for specific paragraph they said there is no direct paragraph. So i am little bit confused, 1st time see this kind of bullshit, that you have to wager your money, that you have won in tournaments before you can make a withdrawal. Hope you wont cooperate with them next OPL season!!!!
Most rooms have TOC's for minimum rake requirements for withdraws.
Ones I can think of include BetOnline, Intertops, GG network skins, some MPN rooms. I think even Stars have a time hold on funds also before you can transfer or even withdraw.
I think the rake requirement is only $20 or so...basically to prevent money laundering.
I don't know how this can justify asking us not to have a room involved...they added $4500 to a league and put on some amazing events!
We will however make all of this more apparent for next season and apologize for any issues caused.
