Bank Transfer

What is Bank Transfer?

Bank Transfer allows you to make secure and immediate electronic funds transfer (EFT) directly from your bank account to your player account via an electronic check (eCheck). eChecks work the same way paper checks do. When you deposit using an eCheck, the amount of your deposit is requested from your bank just like when a paper check you've written is deposited. Once the check clears, the funds are transferred from your bank account to your account with us.

Funds deposited via Bank Transfer are immediately available in your account even though the funds aren't received from your bank account instantly.

As it can take up to 7 days for the funds to be received from your bank, your deposit is in an 'uncleared' status with us for 7 days after you make a Bank Transfer deposit. While a deposit is uncleared, you may not withdraw or request cash transfers unless you have a balance that is greater than the total of your uncleared Bank Transfer deposits. Any portion of your balance that is more than the total of your uncleared deposits may be used normally including withdrawals and transfers.

If a Bank Transfer deposit is not honoured by your bank and is returned as unpaid, other restrictions will apply to future Bank Transfer deposits including not receiving your funds instantly and instead only receiving your funds once your Bank Transfer deposits clear.
