888 Withdrawals and Cashout Information

Winning money is why we play poker, of course, and its always important to choose playing at a safe and reputable site where cashing out and receiving the money that you won is handled in a simple and straightforward fashion. 888 Poker is committed to providing a quick and efficient withdrawal process. As one of the industry’s leaders in online poker, 888 Poker charges no fees to its loyal customers who request a cashout.

888 Withdrawal Methods

In general, 888 Poker’s withdrawal policy is to return your money via the same payment processing method used to submit your deposit. When you fund or make a deposit to your 888 Poker account by credit, charge or debit card, PayPal, WebMoney, NETELLER, Moneybookers, Moneta, ClickandBuy or Ewire, your funds upon each withdrawal request will be credited back to those same payment processors. But when your withdrawal amounts exceed the same amount of funds used to deposit, there are other withdrawal options available. These include bank wire transfers and a bank draft or cheque.

Please note that Visa, Mastercard and Maestro sometimes do not allow payments to be made to the credit and/or debit cards in certain countries. In those instances, typical modes of payment are via bank cheques or wire transfers.

How To Request A Withdrawal

Cashing out is quite simple at 888 Poker. Simply log in to your account, click on Cashier and then click on Withdrawal. In the box provided, enter the amount that you would like to withdraw from your account. A drop-down menu will allow you to enter your method of payment. A final click on Submit Withdrawal Request and you are on your way to receiving your winnings!

Withdrawal Payment Time Frames

Cashout requests are processed in three business days from the date of the request, except for Gold VIP members who receive a preferential processing time of only one business day. During the three-day processing period, withdrawal requests may be cancelled and the funds will be returned to your account. But after your request has been processed, payment will proceed and cancelling your withdrawal will no longer be an option.

After the withdrawal has been processed, you can expect payment in 1-2 days through the payment methods of NETELLER, PayPal, WebMoney, Click & Buy, Moneta and Skrill (Moneybookers). EntroPay Card customers will see the funds in their account in about 2-3 days. Three days is the normal time frame for MasterCard via Bacs for cards issued in the UK. Bank wire transfers take anywhere from 4-7 days. If Visa allows payment in your country, expect to wait 5 days. Maestro Debit Card holders should check their account balances after one week.

Receiving payment in the form of bank drafts or checques will vary widely according to your location and the promptness of the postal service in your region. However, 888 Poker has listed time frames of 5-6 days for UK residents, 10-15 days for European poker players, and 21-28 days for those who reside in the rest of the world. If payment of your withdrawal request has not been posted or received within the specified times mentioned, contact support at 888 Poker and they will promptly investigate the reason for the delay.

Identity Validation Required

In order to prevent fraud, 888 Poker requires identification verification upon your first withdrawal request. Many poker players sometimes look upon this process as unnecessary and burdensome. However, requiring players to validate their identity actually benefits the players by prohibiting unscrupulous characters from fraudulently stealing player funds. Remember, too, that 888 Poker will generally require proof of identification only one time. After the initial ID authentication, its typically smooth sailing for each withdrawal request.

Photo IDs such as a drivers license or a passport, the front and back of credit cards, and proof of address such as a utility bill or credit card statement will be required on that first withdrawal. The submitted documentation to 888 poker support also requires notarization to verify legitimacy. This is standard procedure at poker sites nowadays and if you happen to be playing at a site that does not request this information prior to a cashout, you should be very concerned about the safety of your funds.
