PokerRefugees.eu - Online poker rakeback and VIP deals
Since Black Friday in 2011, Poker Refugees has helped many players relocate to more poker-friendly locations. Part of the service is to help poker players get set up with their online poker accounts, and provide them with the best deals out there. That's where this website comes in.
This website has been created to inform you about all the new possibilities that will open up, once you are based outside of the U.S., and at the same time, provide you with some of the best rakeback, VIP deals and bonuses available.
WHICH SITE IS BEST FOR ME?
TURN BACK THE CLOCK
There are many online poker rooms and networks to choose from, which not only provide better rakeback or loyalty programs than PokerStars or Full Tilt, but will also have much softer competition. When you're used to the level of play on PokerStars, some of the other sites will really make you feel like you've gone back in time five years. But don't take our word for it, you'll have to see it to believe it.
So in order to take maximum advantage of the move abroad, make sure to expand your poker playing horizon to at least a few of these networks. You won't regret it!
Feel free to browse the site, to read about the recommended networks, and the deals we have for you. If you're not sure which poker room is the best for you, considering the games you play, and your playing volume, send us a message and we will gladly help you out.
If you have any other questions or specific requests, you can always contact us through the chat window on the bottom right of your screen.
FIRST THINGS FIRST - GET AN E-WALLET
One of the first things you will notice when you're residing outside of the U.S., is that payment delays are a thing of the past. We can imagine that, when cashing out your winnings, going from several weeks to only a few minutes will feel absolutely awesome. To avoid any delays and transaction fees, you should use an e-wallet to manage your online funds. You can move your money between sites within minutes, and free of charge.
The ones you should open a free account with are NETeller and Skrill (formerly Moneybookers). Both have been around for a long time, are accepted by all gaming sites, and offer similar benefits, like a debit card that you can use for online payments and ATM withdrawals. Of course you can also deposit and withdraw there via bank transfer.
They even have VIP programs, to reward you for doing your transactions with them.
Once you have your e-wallet set up, it's time to go shopping for some lucrative online poker deals. Choose a poker site from the list in the right menu to read more about the VIP or rakeback deal that you can get there by signing up through Poker Refugees.
