Merge Deposit and Cashouts

Recommended Posts

Ive had about 3 people ask me about merge as of late intending to deposit. I cant in my right mind tell them anything good about merge. I also think people should be way more vocal about the current situation. I feel if you arnt a grinder (degen) then you really dont know whats going on. I heard twittering them has helped some people with cashouts. I think we all should blow up carbons twitter. Ill retweet anything I see out there guys plz do the same. @beefecee

Requested: 2/25

Processed: 4/16

Rec: 4/20

Dep: 4/21

Cleared 4/22

Disclaimer on the clearing: It isn't officially cleared, my bank just courtesy cleared because there was money to cover it and it's an well established account. In the past I've always waited 2 to 4 days and called the bank to make sure it really cleared

On at least 3 or 4 occasions with live chat I was told I would be compensated for my wait. The last time was around the time my check finally processed on 4/14 and the rep told me to get back with live chat after I received my check which as you see above was Monday. I got with them today and the first rep said she'd send a request to the poker side for a bonus added to my account. Just a little while later I get an email from Carbon Gaming saying this:

Unfortunately, your account does not currently qualify for a poker bonus but we will gladly review it again once you have built up more deposit and gaming activity.

I get back in touch with live chat, ask for copies of all my chat conversations since 2/25 and especially those around 4/14. I was told that was not possible.

I then said if you can't do a bonus you can at least do tournament tickets, to which he replied he was sorry but couldn't do that either.

I've always defended Merge, at least their financial situation but I no longer feel they are financially strong. Since Sportsbook took over the running of everything Carbon has gone rapidly downhill. They took away people's withdrawal options, they took down their support thread on 2plus2, they downsized at least one and I believe more of the Carbon reps that had been running the 2p2 thread. They've done everything they could to totally screw things up and they seem to be succeeding.

Here is all I've gathered from what I've read on other forums that concerns me most:

Many players have reported having all withdrawal options removed from their accounts except check withdrawal

 

I find the next two most concerning)

 

Affiliates are reporting slower than normal payments

ROW players are getting very slow payments as well

If you trust them stay and play there, if you have a lot of money on you may as well play until you get it withdrawn, which as we know will be awhile. I have a tiny bit on and after I play it out, I'll never put another dime on Carbon.

My advise is that you don't either and that you advise every one you know not to as well.

I do think everyone will likely get paid this round but I think it's pushing it to keep playing there.

tried to tell people months ago, site is a joke, unless you are one of the "lucky ones" that has more than check as a cashout option then it seems like a waste of time to grind up a roll there, and the fact the some are offered that option and some arent is pretty sketch on its own....

Weird too is that my bank wire/direct deposit cash out option processing time is now 3-4 wks. vs. less than a week. WU processing time is less than a week but maximum is 1/5 of bank wire/direct deposit. Sad. I have quit playing on Merge.

Just talked to live chat, and allegedly, both cash transfer and bank wires should not be available to ANYONE as of a few days ago. Tried pressing the issue and of course, I get the cookie cutter response with no real answer as to why that's the case.

This is all quite sketchy. I'm playing my last MTT and cashing out everything. Hopefully it's not too late.

Just checked my PO account. Bank wire still available and max. limit still $5k and processing time 2-4 weeks. However, other cash out options now no longer available except checks ($2.5k max and 3-5 wks. processing time). Not bothering to check my SB or CP accounts. BTW: Received emails from both CP and PO last week reassuring me that bank wire/direct deposit as a cash out option will not be taken away as it was on my Aced account. So I don't understand why live chat would tell you that bank wires would not be available to anyone as of a few days ago.

Is there any hope that the OPS series coming up will change the speed of cash outs. I don't know if the two relate at all but if they are down money the OPS should bring in a lot of new customers and maybe they can handle cash outs at a steadier pace. I have only about 2 grand on the site and want to play some of upcoming tournaments but reading all this is making me a little scared. Should I just withdraw everything on there and continue on Bovada (Never had any problems with them).

Id do what you feel is right. I posted that info so I guy like yourself can have a bunch of info and make the best decision for yourself.

If I had the choice Id leave $1k of my current bankroll and take the rest off. Unfortunately for me that isn't possible

Yeah making move to acr permantly but getting my account verified for payout is annoying as shit! Email then faxes. Merge check still in collections with bank not cleared. OPS should draw tons of new players that don't know what's going on with merge

I agree it is annoying, but once it's done it's done. I suggest the bitcoin cashout option too. No you don't have to keep the bitcoin. I did a bitcoin cashout and had the funds in less than 2 hours in my bitcoin wallet, then all you have to do is sell the bitcoin for the same rate and it may take 3-5 days to post to your account. Still, funds in my possession in two hours, can't beat it.
