We at Bonus Paradise try our best to bring the best promotions to our members here at Bonus Paradise. We also try to reward our members here from time to time with free contests and slot and poker freerolls to show our appreciation for supporting our forum and sponsors. With this said, no matter how we try and protect our members and the free games we provide at times, there is always a few that spoil the games by sharing and stealing passwords. Alot of people come and join our forum just for the free things we offer such as our poker freerolls, then try to receive the password just to play with no intentions on trying to support or at least contribute to the discussions on our forum. The only time some of the people come around, is when the next freeroll is advertised on our forum or that specific pokersite. This is not fair for all of our loyal members who at least stop in from time to time and at least make a few posts a week, and follow our forum rules for qualifing to play in our tournaments. We used to never have rules for our games, and wish we didn't have to, but time and time again, we see people playing in our games and they are not even members of our forum. In todays game, there was at least 8 or 9 players which i will list below that did not get the password from our forum and 3 of those players cashed in our freeroll. This takes away from our loyal members pockets and also the forum's pocket when players who wasn't even a member here at Bonus Paradise cashed in our PRIVATE freeroll. The players that played in our freeroll today that did not receive the password from out Bonus Paradise Staff today are as follows: julionovio = cashed 2nd place for $32 rustine095 = cashed 5th place for $12 88loulou = cashed 10th place for $2 trappiste = 13th no money 01fortis= 14th no money monsterpoker = 23rd no money 00ola = 24th no money fgov1971 = 27th no money splendid8 = no money Not only did 3 people cash and take $46 dollars out of our members pockets, But also, the ones who did not cash probably affected the game of our fellow members which may have costed them their chance in cashing in the money. The only way that these players could have recieved the password for this tournament, is that someone had to share the password with them. I can not find out how everyone of these players recieved the password, but i have found out 1 from our forum that had the password and shared it with julionovio. After doing some research with the internet and some names, i have found that the member volcanohut shared the password with julionovio and Bonus Paradise felt compelled to Ban volcanohut from our forum and future freerolls. We at bonus Paradise have decided to take a stand from these password hunters and thieves, and do whatever possible to keep this from happening again with our private freerolls. Not only sharing the password with other people is wrong, but there are poker forum websites sites out there that encourage stealing passwords from one forum and post them on their forum. This is completely wrong, and Bonus Paradise thinks these sites should be shut down entirely. Not only does it take away from our loyal members that do everything the right way to qualify to play our freerolls, but it also takes away from Our Bonus Paradise staff that work so hard to set these games up, and some we put our own money up for the prizepool, which takes out of our own pockets. One staff member came across a website that copied word for word my post of the Doyle's Room freeroll tournament info and posted it exactly on their forum in my own words. For those who did not know, Doing this is plagerism even online, and is against the law. So Bonus Paradise will be taking action to do whatever we can to have that website shutdown. Regretablly, Bonus Paradise will be coming out with new rules for our future freerolls and these rules WILL be enforced no exceptions anymore. Also, the rules will be stricter for now on as this will ensure the protection of our fellow forum members and our freerolls. Thanks to everyone that read this post, and if you have any questions contact Marina or I, Dmoney644, and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have about our new freeroll policies. Just Another Reminder volcanohut has been banned from our forum for password sharing!
