Just a quick little shout-out to my new friends at OddsMaker.Com. They sent me some FREE money a couple of months ago, and I just cashed out for 4x the original gift.

A little while ago, I got something in the mail from some seemingly new betting site with my favorite kind of marketing stunt... FREE MONEY. The letter said they would deposit $50 in my account for play at their casino, sportsbook, or poker room. Well, if you're reading this, you probably know what I did.

I popped into the poker room and started playing. OK, so it's not exactly PokerStars for traffic, and there's only Hold'Em ring games, but there are also crazy rebuy tournaments, Sit n Go's, gigantic overlays, and remember, this was FREE MONEY.

Anyway, playing just Sit N Go's and rebuys, I quickly jacked the amount over $100. Uh-oh, I better check out the cash-out policies. Luckily, they have an awesome online chat for Customer Service and I quickly found out that I had a play-through of 200 raked hands. Child's play. So I sat down to some easy .25/.50 fixed Hold'Em. Every hand was raked, so I sat for a little over an hour piling up the raked hands.

Lo and behold, I kept winning. The level of play reminded me a lot of the early days of Party Poker where everyone saw every flop and playing tight poker meant playing winning poker. Every suited connector, every baby pair could see a cheap flop. If it hit, I was guaranteed to win about 10 BBs. If it missed, I lost a blind. The money quickly ramped over $200... at .25/.50!

So today I pop back on, asking my online Customer Service friends how close I was to my 200 raked hands. I was only 30 or so hands away. So I won 200 BBs in 170 hands. Not bad... The juicy .25/.50 was full (only one table at each denomination, the perils of being a small fish pond), so I sat at .10/.20 PL-Omaha-8 and played about 60 or so hands and won another $20, so my account is now around $270.

Cashing out is an interesting exercise. They'll pay you in a debit/gift card for a $20 fee. I just submitted my withdrawal, so I'll keep you posted on how quickly I get my card. I left $50+ behind and I'll be running that up too. Like I said, this site reminds me a lot of the fishy first few days at Party/Empire with some gamboolers who may have signed up for the sportsbook betting/slot machines and decided to try poker.

If you want to sign up, go to and use my referral code: 1115005. I'll kickback 50% of whatever I make from the referrals back to you. As long as you don't hook MY fish, you're welcome to join me there. They've also got full slot machine and casino choices, as well as a small sportsbook, so there are lots of ways to satisfy your action jones.

So, I'm wondering- how did the cashout at go?

I've been playing there for a couple of weeks, and have enough in my account that I'm ready to cash out, but just read some horrible reviews of Oddsmaker, saying basically they'll screw you blind if you try to cash out- you'll never seen the money.

So, I'm curious- what happened?

Hey I used your ref # for Mine is 1279319-I'll be waiting for the 50%-Aloha B

Notice how he keeps stressing Free money. What actually happens is that they will tell you that in order to withdraw it you need a pin#, which can only be obtained after depositing real money. They will then make up some sort of lie to say that you have violated some rule and all your earnings will be taken away. Thus you have been robbed...

i lost my free money then deposited real money. i won and the payout of $1000 took 10 weeks. i called or chatted online everyday and they finally paid me.i left 100 in to play and got that up to $1500 and when i wanted to cash out i was charged $40 for 10 day fedex delivery, it was my only option besides a gift card that charges you for every withdrawal. this time it took 2 months and i had to call everyday and threaten them before i got paid. there are plenty of good sites. stay away from this one.

I asked the live customer service rep about the free coupon money and withdrawal requirements, this is what I was told:

Giselle: Free $100 money cannot be played on Poker but you can play all our Casino Games. In Sportsbook, No Parlays and Teasers only straight wagers are permitted when wagering under this promotion. The Bonus money must be wagered 10 times and the account balance must be brought up to a minimum of $1500. Only the winnings above $1500 can be withdrawn. The maximum amount that you can withdraw is $1000. The promotion concludes once a withdrawal is requested, the remaining balance will then be removed from your account during the withdrawal process. This offer cannot be combined with any deposits or other promotional offers. Once you have concluded with this promotion, you are still eligible to claim initial deposit bonuses!

I've played at oddsmaker, Bodog, Rushmore & I must say I never had any issues cashing out. They also have a great customer service team that will help you.
