having a flick through now, good luck with it

one thing i saw:

Bad news is though the sites rakeback or reward scheme is absolutely pants, a real total waste of time, i've played a lot this week mainly due to taking a week off from my business because its always quiet this time of year, so my reward for playing 20 hours so far in 3 days is a paltry $10 in rakeback, lol and you cant collect till u reach a min of $16, plus the cashouts take over 5 business days back to neteller, WTF?

i see you're on FTP, at least there you get a straight percentage paid weekly regardless of amount, rather than these random euro sites with tiered systems, and why bother with neteller? littlewoods (at least when they were crypto) and ftp offer me both a straight bank transfer or refund to card which was an awful lot cheaper and quicker.

I left Littlewoods because the rakeback bonus and stuff is pathetic at the limits i play basically i would need to play like 17hrs a day to get to gold or above status where u can actually make some money through rakeback.

Yep i played on FTP with rakeback, but i'm a big loser at cash games on there, so rakeback doesn't really matter on there if ur not maintaining ur bankroll at least, and find it hard to grind mtt's all night.

So now i'm on Cake network with 33% rb and doing ok, and as for credit cards etc i cut them all up, so i cant redeposit any more funds on poker sites, so basically the $1k is my last ever deposit!

There are plent of other Affiliate deals with iPoker sites that don't rely on a tiered system. I get 40% straight rakeback regardless of VIP level etc (although its not called rakeback on iPoker anymore).
