      After you pass the quiz, there might be an ID check, and that can take 24 hours. If you pass the ID check then it can take up to 48 hours for the funds to be credited to your poker account.

      question, why do some people have to do the ID check while others don't? Me and my mate that I introduced didn't but some people do. Is it just if your details are similar to people already registered? Or is it just a random selection like bags at the airport?

      I also got my starting capital without an ID check. It happens, but how PS staff decide when to do an ID check and when not to do one is probably proprietary information, and telling us about it might compromise security.

      Hi folks,

      Thanks for answering here, belayd.

      We can't tell you the reasons that we might apply an ID check to an account before transfering the free $50 starting capital, I'm afraid.

      What we can say is that as I'm sure you can imagine, our offer attracts 'bad' attention, as well as honest customers. Since we're giving away something for nothing; it can potentially be pretty open to abuse. We therefore must have a Risk Mitigation policy in place; part of which is the ID check you experienced.

      The thing about Risk Mitigation policies is that if we publicise how it works, we also make it useless as those who seek to defraud or abuse our offer will know exactly how to circumvent it.

      I hope that explains things in a little more detail.

      Best,

      Thanks for wording it more elegantly and precisely than I was able to, Marc. :)

      And of course what you describe is standard practice among security people. The U.S. Secret Service doesn't blab about what measures it takes to protect the President.

      I think I understand what you meant, why do some people have to send in proof, while others like myself did not have to send anything in, but everyone goes through the ID check.
