Pokerstars is dead.
« on: October 31, 2014, 02:25:32 am »

The throne will be left empty soon, and you have the opportunity to take it.

Since the company was bought by Amaya Gaming some months ago, they've been making horrible changes for the players. They turned the nº 1 poker site into a roulette and blackjack casino that charges more fees for everything.

Players were angry with what Pokerstars was becoming, and today, they even announced major increases in rake.

They are even trying to focus traffic on Spin n Go, which is a 3 players Sit n Go, that starts with a slot machine shot to determine the prize pool players opt to. More than 80 % of the time you play for 2/3 of the buy-in you paid, and it has an average 6% rake. So it has a huge variance and it is almost impossible to beat.

These weeks there are thousands of players who will stop playing in the site. The whole world, specially regulated countries, but even in those places that are still free to play poker anywhere, are desperately looking for a place to play poker without getting screwed. The time for crypto poker has come.

Good luck nxtpoker

Hi!
I love Spin n go concept to make more fees. I have already beat it With some 1k$ table for 5$.
Variance is huge but we are aware to that,
it´s not the most terrible.

Rake increase is terrible. No rakeback is horrible. Poker laws are Sick.

Crypto poker can be awesome.

Thanks, I think you'd be pleasantly surprised when new developments are announced. Stark handling the  Management while i have been hunting devs...The client looks sweet and I am very critical of my own work.

As for pokerstars...this was expected even before the summer since the rumors of the Amaya acquisition ...bigger companies come in buy and have to squeeze every avenue for profits to increase bottom line : implementing new models therefore depleting the already questionable player experiences. Its even more fitting that they pulled out of more countries, now not alot of people can participate even if they wanted to. http://www.pokernews.com/news/2014/10/pokerstars-and-full-tilt-poker-withdraw-from-30-countries-19412.htm

Decentralization is definitely in.
