Free Money Requires Patience

Elvis Henry has decided to be a guinea pig and attempt the Free Money at Titan Poker deal from Instant Bankroll. Turns out it requires a little more patience than I previously thought.

When he signed up, he got the following message:

ATTENTION: Due to the overwhelming demand for Instant Bankroll's Free$75, we have put a limit of 15 accounts per day. Instant Bankroll reserves the right to change this limit at anytime along with any requirements associated with this offer.

Remember this is a brand new offer and they have to talk to each and every person that does it via telephone so they can verify their address and age. They don't have a lot of people manning the phones there, so they are limiting it to 15 people per day. I don't think you have to get up at 3am to be one of the 15, you just need to call in the morning rather than the evening. If you try for a few days, you should be fine.

I know a bunch of people who have tried it, and many have gotten the free money, so it is a legit deal. I hope a lot of people are not upset that the process isn't as easy as it could be, but when you offer free money over the internet, I guess you need to be VERY careful.

Good luck to everyone who tries these offers. Patience is a virtue, which you already know if you are a successful poker player.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Patience. The fact remains that if you live on say, the east coast, you cannot sign up for the offer until 3:00 a.m. The offer is good to the first FIFTEEN Americans or Canadians who click in. You have to admit, it's a bit of a long shot and quite limiting.

Also make sure, dear people, that you download the Titan software before you click to the screen asking for your personal information. This process isn't quite as clear as when you go through their Party Poker sign up. You have to have a "TTR" number before you call them to claim your stake, and the only way you get that is by installing the software. I made the mistake of signing for the bonus before installing Titan, thus disqualifying me from the bonus offer. Learn from dumb dumb here.

I checked at around 8:30am EST this morning and there were still spots left.

Elvis, go to the support forum at PSO and tell them you screwed it up and I think they can delete your first registration and let you try it again.

Elvis Henry said...

Got it taken care of. Thanks.

Well, the first thing you see after clicking the Titan IB banner is the "Exactly How the Process Works" section.

Bullets 2 and 3 are:

2. Download the Titan Poker software from the link provided on the next page.
3. Fill out the Instant Bankroll confirmation form to notify us of your account.

So, seems to be pretty clear to me.

Besides, common sense would tell me that I need an actual account with Titan Poker into which the folks at IB can deposit the money.

Good luck with your adventures at Titan!

I firked up, OK? The DOWNLOAD link is there, but I think I initially thought it wasn't a link, as it is not spelled out as the process is for Party Poker. Whatever, we've all established that Elvis is a stupid shit, OK?

DuggleBogey said...

As long as they got it fixed for you, everyone's happy, right?

I have two pending referrals for Titan IB at PSO now... of course, I find about half the IB signups are fraudulent and never go through, so I'll have to see how that goes.

actyper said...

1/2 of your IB referrals are fraudulant? What am I doing wrong? Mine are about 3/4 frauds!

I just got my $50 credit, under Titan screenname Jopke27. Let me know if you need any information to get your part of the bonus.

DuggleBogey said...

You're good to go DonkeyPuncher. PSO takes care of everything!

Good luck at Titan, I hear it requires a lot of poker to actually cash out that money....but what the hell, it's free!

Donkeypuncher said...

It's a no brainer for me. Even if I don't get to cash out, it's a free way for me to work on my NL cash game!

"As long as they got it fixed for you, everyone's happy, right?"

You should be happy that I'm happy. You get a cut on this deal, do you not? Elvis is going to play his little heart out to try and clear that $75 without going nuts up in the process. And again, my dear boy, I thank you for your help in this matter. But you are right, no one's happiness is more important to Elvis than his own. That's what makes him tick.
