      So, my problem is that, it's soon my mother's birthday, and since i now made some money from poker with the help of pokerstrategy, i wanna give her what she always wanted (a trip to greenland in 7days)


      Now i wanted to withdraw 1000$ from my Betfair account to my mastercard. Yet i was unaware that this isn't a option, since you cant withdraw to a mastercard anymore (I THINK not sure)

      So, any other option?? i made a Paypal account, but i'm unsure how it's gonna work.

      My Guess.

      I open an account at Paypal, i deposit 20$ (or some small amount)

      i go to Betfair, deposit those 20$ with my paypal account, and then i withdraw 1020$ back to my paypal account?

      Am i totally wrong here? what do you suggest? ofc the fastest way would be nice! Comment it, what do you use to get your money. ?

      Hey Holdemfreakie,

      I don't really know the answer to your question here as I deposited there via VisaDebit and withdrew the exact same way.

      Best thing you could do here is contact Betfair support and see what they suggest. I'm not to tuned into Paypal or Mastercards as I have never used them.

      Hopefully, one of our members will pop in and help you out :)


      All the best,
      Gary

      Any news?
      Is there any problems with cashing out first time, like security checks? If so, what timeframe they are checking these issue?
      I'm thinking about First Deposit, but don't have time for these plays, so is it better to stay on PS?

      Hi martizzo,

      Security checks are quite common amongst all Poker Rooms.

      They will most likely ask for a Government issued ID (Passport, Driving Licence) and possibly sometimes they may require a Utility Bill or Bank statement.

      These are requested for you own security so they are of the upmost importance.

      I recently withdrew from Betfar, they requested ID confirmation (I used my passport) and it was all completed in a matter of hours. Which was quiet fast in my opinion.

      The actual withdrawal took about 3 working days which is quiet standard in those procedures.

      Hope this helped,
      Gary

      Hey HollyMichelle,

      thanks for fast and clear explanation.

      I think 3 days is reasonable time and i even call it quite fast.

      In one room had id check, that took two weeks, thats why i wanted to find out.

      No problems martizzo,

      You are very welcome.

      It is of course different from room to room. It can also depend on the deposit/withdrawal method that you use also. With my Betfair withdrawal some of it via Visa and the rest via Moneybookers because I had used both methods to deposit. The moneybookers withdrawal only took a matter of hours, while the VISA withdrawal took 2-3 working days.

      Best wishes and enjoy your Poker, and if you require further assistance, please don't hesitate to ask.

      Gary

      Send my passport fullscaned to age verification team and got response(see below). Can you explain me: what is full access to all products? Do i need that full verification? Thanks

      Dear xxxxxx

      Thank you for the documents you recently forwarded to Betfair to verify your age. We can confirm that they have been verified and approved, our records have been updated and your account has been age verified.

      Confirming your age is the minimum requirement for our regulations. In order to gain full access to all available Betfair products and services please consider completing a full identity check (KYC)
