Title:Withdrawal Fees5 out of 10 readers found this review helpful
Be very careful when you want to make a withdrawal at PayNoRake. (I don't know about the other Chico sites.)

What's buried in their terms and conditions, is that the first withdrawal of the month is free, and every other withdrawal during the month has a $50.00 fee attached to each withdrawal!

Therefore, if your second withdrawal of the month is for $50.00, they take it, and you don't see a cent of it.

It's the only site I know of that does that.

Anyone got any info on any other sites with a similar stipulation?

Please let us know.

Title:Very fast cashouts!1 out of 2 readers found this review helpful
Ordered cashout 1730 at 8 a.m. on Saturday and got it at 2 p.m. at the same day! Was really surprised with the speed of cashout! Software is something that you would have to get used to, but it's worth playing there! Support is fast and you can always ask for online help.

Title:BetOnline Run by Scumbag Scammers2 out of 5 readers found this review helpful
Don't play here guys. The people who run this site can not be trusted. I won $37 on here without ever making a deposit and decided to place a bet in the Sportsroom since they were offering a $50 freeplay Mobile bet for your first time bet. So I went ahead and made a bet and lost it. Since I lost the bet, I qualified for a $37 freeplay and went ahead and sent them an email.

I get an email back from them saying I don't qualify since I never made a deposit. I checked the terms and conditions page and there is no mention at all of having to make a deposit to qualify. I than go online and talk to someone from betonline and they say you need to make a Real Money Wager in order to qualify. So I told them isn't US currency real money? The rep went on to bullsh-- and say that the money I had wasn't real money and that only money from deposits is real money. That makes no sense at all to say that money you win on the site isn't real money. Bet online can not be trusted, stay away from this scam site.

Title:Major Issues With This Network2 out of 6 readers found this review helpful
Negative Point 1

There are 4 sites on this network
PayNoRake, TigetGaming, BetOnline and SportsBetting

players from the 2 sites BetOnline and SportsBetting have their locations hidden which means that players from the same location could be playing on a table and exploiting a player whose location is hidden.

Negative Point 2
PayNoRake on it's site says that payouts will be guaranteed within 24 hours but it's customer rep says 48 to 72 hours excluding saturdays and sundays.

Negative Point 3
It denied my payout saying that emails on neteller and paynorake account were different but they were same

Negative Point 4
It's Live Help is never working and always forwards to send comments via email

Negative Point 5
No hand histories can be saved on computer

Negative Point 6
No tournaments worth playing here, all are small and very few to nil big guaranteed tournaments

Negative Point 7
Only one free withdrawal in a month and all next withdrawal in a month even through Neteller 50$

Positive Points
Rakeback is extremely nice and gives upto 100% rakeback which raises doubts as to how the operations are supported!!!

Title:Pretty Soft and Lucrative0 out of 0 readers found this review helpful
The fact is there simply are not a lot of options for US players. If you proxy into some of non-US sites, there is better options and more players but you will get caught, banned, and likely have your money absconded.

Chico, via Betonline, however allows you access to a pretty strong offering with plenty of players and tournaments. Plus, the play is extremely soft. I have been playing now for 24+ months and I have had one losing month. There is nothing to complain about with one exception - their software is about 4 years behind the big boys.

So, if you like to play from the US, and you don't mind not being in the biggest room with the best software then Chico is an option. Plus you can bet casino, sports, skill games, and horses all from one account (unlike the big boys by the way).

Summary: 8; on 1-10 scale

Title:great site, soft games, fast money returns.1 out of 4 readers found this review helpful
Chico is a overall good site and very soft player pool. All the negitive feedback from players all i have to say it this,these companys dont put bots in at all they are making to much money to jepradize the site integrity. When you play live poker you play at a much slower pace then online poker. With that being said the amount of bad beats you will see will be greatly more then playing live poker because of the shear volume of hands you play. Most of these sites tables average about 130 hands a hour and if you mutli-table them then it will be 400 per hour etc,etc. So you will see your A's and K's get cracked to bs much more, but as long as you play +EV poker you will profit from all sites they are that soft. Hey you should be happy when a person puts a whole 100bbs in prefolp with a K7 type hand you will win much more then you loose. im just saying this to take the negitive comments out or all sites about bots at least.

Title:Tried it this month0 out of 0 readers found this review helpful
There is some traffic, nothing compared to bigger networks.

Rakeback has decreased lately so it's not proffitable as it looked like some time ago.

Cashouts take time to be done and that doesn't make me feel safe having big ammounts inside.

There is no timebank and lots of bugs in the software. You have 10 seconds to act and if you don't act it folds your hand right away. That is pretty annoying.

Title:PAYNORAKE equals True RNG0 out of 3 readers found this review helpful
I was tired of the rest of these so called poker networks i played them all except for party poker.I found a common thread in all of these sites.All of these site seemed to reward bad players and punish good payers.I also noticed that there was obviously a flaw in all these networks where as the player with the larger stack can seem almost unbeatable.Every single network i played on also had this magical river that consistently hands you bad beats over and over.Where as if you are in a situation that you are all in with a premium hand with another player and said player needs a certain card and only this card to win,and poof like magic 90% of the time it hits. So with that being said i was about to completely give up on online poker that is until i found PAYNORAKE.Although i just started there i can already feel a dramatic difference in the card play,and although i only played their freerolls i can see the difference in how well i have been doing at may game.Now mind you i have not won a single tournament yet so this to me makes my statement more valid even if i lose a lot at poker and i do lose a lot this is the only network that if i lost it was only do my bad decisions on the table and not to some magical poker player and am not left with the feeling that i had been cheated,and to me that is great.I have no experience with any withdraw or deposits yet but i am thinking of making a small deposit to see where it leads.But i must say this site does have a good feel to only issue about PAYNORAKE is that every body other then me can hide their location but i myself cannot which is not so bad cause most of those guy who hide it are not that great of players anyway so big whoop.Check it out for yourself and see try the freerolls before you put any money on there to see if i am being truthful you will see a drastic change that paying little to no rake does to your game where as your not playing on a software that is designed to fleece your bankroll.
