Hi loki, sorry to hear you aren't a fan of Splash the Pot.

With our current rewards structure, players earn 30% rakeback from Splash the Pot, and a varying (10% - 45%) from our Legends rewards program. Which means players earn 40% - 75% rakeback every week, before factoring in additional promotions.

On top of our standard rewards, we run various promotions every week, where players can earn extra rakeback. For example, last week we ran Double Down Hours, where we matched all Splash the Pot winnings with cash for eight hours every day. We effectively offered 60% rakeback via STP for eight hours every day + our standard Legends rewards. Players could also earn an extra 5bbs up to €5 for winning with 72 in NLHE or trips in PLO.

This week, we introduced the first-ever Run It Once leadRboards. There are seven separate leaderboards, and we're giving away over €10k in total. With the introduction of leadRboards, we saw a significant increase in traffic.

If only listed examples from the last two weeks, but as mentioned, we run promotions that offer extra rakeback on top of our standard STP + Legends rewards every week. With all this said, I can confidently say we have a serious rakeback offering, that imo is much better than PartyPoker.

Hi, to unlock access to Essential content for the third month, you'll need to complete our Clubs rank for two weeks during weeks 5 - 8 on the site.

To do this, 600 points are required.

Keep in mind you'll earn 5 Level-Up boosts during this time totaling 190 points.

So you'll actually need to earn 410 points. Also, keep in mind, you can earn points every day by just logging (10 points) and playing your first hand (15 points).

The exact amount of rake required will also vary depending on if you play 2 or 3 handed.

Assuming you only play 4+ handed and only play one day during the week, you'd need to earn 385 points (410 - 15 - 10 = 385), you receive 1 point for every 0.05 in rake, so you need to rake €19.25.

Please note, this is with the minimum daily boosts and no shorthanded boosts.

Hey guys,

Unfortunately, Swedes are still not allowed to participate in our games. Initially, we thought this would be one of the first additional licences we would obtain, but we ran into some trouble due to Splash the Pot and our rewards program. Currently, we don't have an estimated date on a resolution, but we'll be sure to update everyone in this thread if and when we have an update.

Hey zekonja,

Thanks for testing out our app and sharing your feedback. Recently, we've had a few requests for both the items you mentioned. Converting to BB and custom bit sizings are on our radar. We don't have a timetable at this stage, but if/when they are added we'll make a public announcement. Good luck on the tables!
