  • Do not try to play on holiday in states!

    We went to the states for a few days of shopping and I thought I would bring my laptop to
    relax after shopping all day. I logged on to pokerstars and was not allowed to play
    so I shut it down. Now I just got this message from pokerstars security.....
    What do you think?
    Hello,

    PokerStars has noticed that you recently accessed our services from the United
    States.

    As you may already be aware, residents of the United States and United States
    Territories are not permitted to make deposits into their accounts or engage in
    real-money activity (game play, transfer of funds, or T$ trading) from anywhere in
    the world. Such players may cash out their balances.

    Residents of other nations are not permitted to engage in real-money activity (game
    play, transfer of funds, or T$ trading) while physically located in the United
    States. This applies even if you are a resident of another country.

    We can confirm that any attempt to circumvent these restrictions is a breach of the
    PokerStars Terms of Service. This will lead to your account being closed and your
    account balance being forfeited.

    PokerStars has further information on this information online here:

    Welcome to the US!!! The story goes something like this... ...then... ...so... and it goes on and on and on... moke: I was gonna end by saying, "thank you for spending your money, now go home." ...but are you freaking kidding me..there's some story on the news about an old law that tourists can't overspend on visit here?? Yeah..we got too much money here, I get it now.

      I feel for all the players in the united states.Being told what you can or cannot play
      is wrong. I put this up for you to see and all you can be is as I see it is rude!
      Can someone from the states not be rude.

      thanks !!!Dan

              I didn't mean to be rude, I apologize..the story was to depict how we were all having a "good time" until the feds showed up..and our attitude toward the situation. Guess a joke sucks if you have to explain it.
              Nothing directed at you, and the first line in the last part is a joke about tourists, that you hear a lot in Florida.

              Sorry,

                  Sorry,
                  I'm not buying it... you heard him, everyone from the states is rude. It seems like a rational belief to me.

                    What if someone went to the states and had a VNC server running back home in say, Canada or the UK? Then they could use their iPad or laptop from the USA to connect to their machine back home and play poker. I don't think Stars could detect that, correct?

                          No, I wouldn't try it myself, anytime I would go to the States, it would be on vacation anyway, so I wouldn't have time to play poker anyway.

                              Please nobody listen to this, it's a good way to get your money confiscated, multi-accounting is against the TOS of all sites..
