Default Interpoker - Ripoff

I recently joined Interpoker using Neteller for my money transfer. Never using them again. It cost me £2 to deposit £30 and £3 credit card fee. So that's £5 down before i've even started playing. Then Interpoker charge $1 to withdraw to Neteller then there's a further £1 to withdrawn from there. So that's a total of £6.50 just to play with £30 at this site. They also advertise Switch card transactions to us UK customers which are not actually available! Total con. DO NOT JOIN unless you can be sure of the fees.

Would the fees be the same if you deposited $300? Then 6.50 isn't so much. It sounds like you were the victim of your own failure to read the fine print and now want to find an outlet to bash those that supposedly "ripped you off." You are correct when you say be sure of the fees.

Welcome to the forum. Will you be staying long?

I deposited straight from a card (yay UK) so I got hit with the cash transaction fee, £3 or something, which is fine but since I was playing in $ (Why on earth would you play in £ and pay twice as much rake especailly with a £30 bankroll!!) if there was a transaction fee I didn't notice it.

I cashed out a cheque recently and there was a $1 fee for mailing it to me...again 50p to cash out a £260 cheque (since you can get a ££ cheque even if you play in $$$ like Stars which is awesome by the way....saves £10 on converting the darn thing) which I'm totally fine with.

Given I got $250 in bonus from the site I'll take the $7 or whatever I paid in transaction fees, $6 of which was to my credit card company anyway. I haven't used Neteller for a while and doubt I will. I don't like the idea of my cash being seized because of a knee-jerk government reaction.

I think in this situation you just made a couple of bad decisions. There's no reason to deposit less than $150 into Interpoker or you miss the full bonus and there's no point in playing in £ or Euros at all. You just pay more rake.

Equivalent Games

$10/$20 Limit - Rake Cap $3
£5/£10 Limit - Rake Cap £3

Ummmmm nope, not seeing it.

Games with high rake/fees tend to be softer because sharks avoid them.

I don't think ANY games, especailly at Limit, is worth paying a potential $6 in rake for online.

Anyway the low fixed limit games on Crypto suck in comparison to other sites. it's hard enough to beat the rake as it is.

Yes, interpoker sucks royally; but crypto sites have easy on the eyes software; they have soft games and are honest. If you played their using poker tracker you could also complain that they have some of the highest rakes in poker! Just don't play crypto sites without rakeback and the full first time deposit bonus and their loyalty bonus.
