Now What?

Dammit. Another rakeback program killed. I can’t say I’m really surprised, but this sucks.

We regret to inform you that Party Poker has asked us to remove them from the Frequent Flopper program. As you know, Party Poker has implemented a new policy to stop rakebacks on their site. (Actually, this isn’t a new policy; they are just actively enforcing it now). Since we don’t offer cashback with our program and OUR program was approved directly by Party Poker over a year ago, we thought we were going to be able to continue to list them on our site. In fact, we spoke to Party Poker in person about this just a couple of months ago during a London visit. However, the only thing that is certain in this world is change. We have no choice but to comply with Party Poker’s request. We are no longer taking sign-ups for Party Poker via the Frequent Flopper Program and our last payment will be made to our customers by June 10th for the period ending May 31st. This will not affect any other PSO/Party Poker promotions. We apologize for any inconvenience.


I don’t know where to play anymore, now, and I guess I don’t have a way to generate PSO points other than referrals (I already have accounts at all of their other frequent flopper sites). I guess I’ll have to keep playing at Party for the fish, but, they’re certainly not doing anything else to want to make me stay.

In other news, spammers have quickly figured out my comment preview button. Today I found one legitimate comment amidst 277 spams, waiting for moderation. I’ve outright banned a few words from my comments and will see how that does. If anyone has a good spam prevention solution for WordPress, please let me know. All the ones I’ve tried lately have way too many false positives that I never find out about.
