Fastest Paying Poker and Gambling Sites

Poker and Gambling sites payout report banner

This monthly report brings you information about offshore poker sites and their cashout speeds. Not only will it help you find the fastest paying poker sites, but most of these sites have other forms of gambling as well. As such, this data will also give you information on sportsbook payouts, casino payouts, racebook payouts, etc. Many online gaming providers today offer same-day payouts, which is quite an improvement from the situation just a couple of years ago.

Our report will be especially helpful to those in "grey markets" such as the United States, Australia, Czechia and other countries. Players in these markets will often have a restricted menu of payment options due to processing hurdles and limitations. Still, the overwhelming majority of these sites provide games to players all over the world; thus, any real money online gamer should find this page useful.

All of our data is sourced from reports by online players who have kindly left a public record of the dates they requested their withdrawals and the dates on which the money was received by them. We've gathered these notes together and averaged them out to come up with our results.

Online Poker Payouts Overview

for March 2018

  Last updated on April 10, 2018  

March was a stable month for online poker and gaming payouts. There were no big surprises, and operators continued to provide the expected level of service regarding withdrawal requests, including same-day payouts in some cases. The Bitcoin Network remained in healthy condition with low fees and rapid confirmation times. BTC is our recommended payment choice for our readers though altcoins, like Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash, are strong options at many sites as well. Older payment channels, like checks, continue to represent a fine way of receiving money for those who haven't yet jumped aboard the crypto-currency train.

PaiWangLuo Network Payouts

Sites sharing this cashier include Ignition Casino, Bovada, and Bodog.

PWL Network Payouts April 2018

PWL Cashout Methods Chart REPORT SCORE: 9.2 (EVEN from last month)
Key Stat: Bitcoin payment times within the 2-day processing guidelines.
Key Fact: Ignition is still the #1 US-facing online poker site in terms of player traffic.

The largest destination for U.S.A. online poker remains at the forefront of the pack in terms of payout speeds. The PaiWangLuo Network relies heavily on Bitcoin. Therefore, any fluctuations in the site's ability to transact with the crypto coin have a big impact on users. Fortunately, there haven't been any major issues with this organization although a couple of customers have stated that it took a bit longer than the promised 48 hours to get their money during the month of March. In all cases, they were paid shortly thereafter.

Anyone who bets at Ignition Casino, Bodog, or Bovada can count on receiving cashouts in an honest and forthright manner. The PWL's long history of treating its users fairly is one reason why it rose to prominence in the poker and gambling industries.

Chico Poker Network Payouts

The sites housed on this network are, TigerGaming, and BetOnline.

CPN Payouts April 2018

Chart of Chico Network Withdrawal Options REPORT SCORE: 9.2 (+0.1 from last month)
Key Stat: BetOnline’s ~24 hour Bitcoin turnaround shows strength of withdrawal abilities.
Key Fact: Firmly seated in 3rd in terms of player traffic for US friendly poker sites.

Only a few individuals reported on their cashout experiences at the Chico Network for March, but what they had to say was positive. Bitcoin withdrawal times are within the guidelines stipulated by the three CPN sites, and we haven't heard of any serious delays involving other payment processors either. The network has added two popular altcoins, Bitcoin Cash and Dash, to its menu for both deposits and withdrawals. The only minor snafu was DDoS attacks rendering the websites inoperable for short periods of time, but management has taken steps to address this problem.

The Chico Poker Network is a sensible option for players from the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, and almost every other country on the face of the earth.

Winning Poker Network Payouts

Sites sharing this cashier include Americas Cardroom, BlackChip Poker, True Poker, and Ya Poker.

WPN Payouts April 2018

WPN Withdrawal Methods Chart REPORT SCORE: 9.0 (-0.2 from last month)
Key Stat: WPN withdrawals remain well under stated times for almost all processors.
Key Fact: Trails only Ignition in US-facing player traffic and is 9th worldwide.

There are no unexpected delays with Bitcoin or crypto transfers at the Winning Poker Network, and some users have even enjoyed same-day payouts. Checks are also arriving in a timely fashion. We did have to deduct a few points, however, because the popular Skrill and Neteller ewallets have been removed from the cashier screens of several customers particularly those in certain European countries. This does not affect most players at all, but it does mean that a few users now have to scramble to adopt other payment solutions in order to get their cash. Also, the sponsored 2+2 support forum for the network was closed for reasons unrelated to financial matters, which does remove one venue for resolving any cashier-related queries that people may have.

Despite recent minor irritations, the Winning Poker Network serves up bustling online poker action as it has done for quite a few years. None of its recent woes involve payment failures at all.

Horizon Poker Network Payouts

Sites sharing this cashier include Intertops and Juicy Stakes.

Horizon Network Payout Times April 2018

Horizon Network Withdrawals Chart REPORT SCORE: 8.8 (EVEN from last month)
Key Stat: Intertops provides extra value in the form of rakeback, money-added tournaments, and casino promos.
Key Fact: Intertops has been a trusted name in gaming for over 30 years.

There's nothing much to say this month about Intertops and sister site Juicy Stakes. Both of them are sending money to their customers upon request, and our sources indicate that this cash is arriving according to their publicly posted timeframes. Now that the Bitcoin mempool congestion from several months ago has cleared up, there are some who grumble at the fact that Intertops continues to charge $20 per BTC withdrawal, but this is a small complaint all things considered.

Regardless of changing market conditions, the Horizon Network has always been an entity you can trust with your money.

Grand Poker Network Payouts

Sites sharing this cashier include 5Dimes, Grand Poker, Island Casino, and Sportbet.

Grand Network Payments April 2018

GPN Available Payout Methods REPORT SCORE: 8.0 (+0.1 from last month)
Key Stat: Opened for business in November of 2014.
Key Fact: Grand Poker is owned by the 5Dimes Group.

We're glad to see that the Grand Poker Network appears to have put the extended downtime and intermittent outages from late last year to rest. After a multi-month hiatus, the site returned to the scene in February and has been operating continuously ever since. A plethora of payment options and a comprehensive gambling lineup make this a convenient online betting location for many.

It's smooth sailing at the Grand Poker Network so far in 2018 after a rocky 2017. We're glad to see this turnaround.

Nitrogen Sports Payouts

Nitrogen Sports is a standalone site that includes poker, sports-betting, and casino games.

Nitrogen Sports Cashout Times April 2018

Table of Withdrawal Methods at Nitrogen REPORT SCORE: 7.7 (+0.2  from last month)
Key Stat: Bitcoin-only online poker site has very fast payouts.
Key Fact: Nitrogen is one of the few sites to offer Bitcoin-only poker to all 50 US states.

We've bumped up the score of Nitrogen Poker following several months of positive customer feedback. This is perhaps the best BTC online poker site and sportsbook for same-day payouts, and you can get one free cashout every two weeks.

The sportsbook at Nitrogen gets most of the attention, but the poker side can also be profitable especially when you consider the freerolls and rewards available.

SwCPoker Payouts

SwCPoker is a completely independent Bitcoin poker site that doesn't share its cashier with any other party.

SwCPoker Payouts for April 2018 Report

SwCPoker Withdrawal Processors REPORT SCORE: 7.2 (EVEN from last month)
Key Stat: Offers one of the quickest turnarounds from payout request to receiving.
Key Fact: SWC Poker is one of the originators of using Bitcoin-only denominations in their games.

March was another month of rapid, same-day payouts for SwCPoker, which has never disappointed those looking to transact exclusively in Bitcoin and thereby bypass the traditional banking system. It's certainly a niche site, but its fast withdrawals, wide array of game types, and low rake keep aficionados coming back time and again for more BTC poker action.

Merge Gaming Network

Avoid the Merge Gaming Network REPORT SCORE: N/A
Key Stat: Player traffic has dropped to less than 100 players on average per week.
Key Fact: Carbon Poker offers no incentives and bans winning accounts on their poker site.

Carbon Poker is a USA-friendly poker site that was formerly a leading online poker room, but we now caution our readers to stay away. It has a long history of making disappointing moves that are bad for the poker community, including banning winning players, reducing or eliminating promotions, and even levying a fee on every withdrawal beyond the first in a year. It is paying out what it owes customers – for now – although with delays and annoying surcharges.

We strongly urge you to play at any of the other internet poker rooms listed above and steer clear of the Merge Gaming Network. Seriously, play somewhere else other than Carbon Poker, PlayersOnly, and

Global Poker

Global Poker is a Needless Risk REPORT SCORE: 8.5
Key Stat: Global Poker works with only one payout channel, PayPal.
Key Fact: There's no deposit bonus offer at Global and a lack of other promos.

Global Poker has made a big splash in the U.S. online poker market by advertising PayPal deposits and withdrawals, which no other reputable gaming operator has. These payouts are indeed pretty speedy with same day cashouts commonplace. However, there are continuing worries about the viability of Global's business model, which we cover in our Global Poker Review. Suffice it to say that Global might eventually be found to be both illegal and in violation of the PayPal terms of service. Making matters worse is the fact that PayPal is the only payment processor supported, leaving you and your money to the whims of this company. There have already been isolated reports of PayPal problems, like an incident involving a player having to wait more than six months to receive his $50,000 cashout.

The long-term viability of Global Poker is not exactly secure, so we recommend that you take a pass on Global Poker to stay on the safe side.

Online Poker Payouts FAQ

What do I need to do to get a payout from an online gambling site?
In most cases, you'll have to complete identity verification before a real money internet gaming site will send you a payment. This usually involves submitting a copy of a form of identification as well as a recent utility bill or other proof of address. The reason sites request this information is because they must adhere to Know Your Customer and anti-money laundering laws. Once your account is verified, you won't have to go through this hassle again because the company will retain your documents and therefore won't have to request them again.

What can I do to speed up my cashout?
If you're keen on obtaining your money as rapidly as possible, perhaps from a same-day payout casino for U.S. players, then we advise you to complete any identity verification in advance of the time when you intend to submit your withdrawal. Furthermore, we believe that it's best to transact in crypto-currency so that you won't have to wait for the postal service to deliver your check or for the molasses-paced vagaries of bank wires.

How do I start using crypto-currency?
It can be a challenge to get involved in digital currencies because there is a fair amount of work to do to set up your wallet and exchange accounts. Fortunately, we've prepared guides for some of the most popular crypto coins in existence. Check them out here: Bitcoin Gambling Guide | Guide to Ethereum Gaming | Gamble Online With Bitcoin Cash
