Play Poker for Real Money Using Instant Bank.

Instant Bank

What is Instant Bank?

Instant Bank allows you to make fund transfers in your local currency directly from your bank account to your PokerStars account. You can make the transfer online at your bank's web site, and your PokerStars account will be credited almost instantly.

How can I make purchases at PokerStars using Instant Bank?

Instant Bank is fully integrated via the PokerStars cashier. When you click ‘Cashier’ and then ‘Deposit’, you will see an option to use Instant Bank. Click on the Instant Bank button and you will then be redirected to our secure processor website where you can select the bank from which you wish to deposit.

It is very important you do not enter an amount higher than the equivalent US Dollar maximum deposit limit, as this may cause a delay to your payment. It is also important that you visit the Cashier for each subsequent Instant Bank deposit that you wish to make.

How long does it take before my PokerStars account is credited?

Once you make the transfer from your bank account, the funds will be credited to your PokerStars account within a few minutes in most cases, but some banks may take one day to process.

What about my cashouts?

Currently it is not possible to cashout your funds through Instant Bank.

How does the exchange rate conversion work?

PokerStars uses the prevailing mid-market rate provided by XE (plus a small fee if applicable) to convert your deposits to your PokerStars account currency. For additional information, please read our Real Money Transaction Processing and Currency Conversion Terms and Conditions.
