Fastest Paying Poker and Gambling Sites

Payout Reports Top Image

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 January 2018

Last updated on Feb. 8, 2018

January was a good month for online poker payouts. The congestion in the Bitcoin network started to clear up with fees dropping considerably. This makes BTC more convenient for both players and companies, like the way it used to be before the December run-up in coin prices. Still, there was the usual variance in payout times with a few operators improving their speeds and a couple of them getting slightly worse.

PaiWangLuo Network Payouts

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

PWL Network Payouts Feb. 2018

PWL Cashout Methods Chart REPORT SCORE: 9.4 (+0.2 from last month)
Key Stat: Bitcoin payment times have dropped back below 1 day on average.
Key Fact: Ignition is still the #1 US-facing online poker site in terms of player traffic.

The fortunes of the PaiWangLuo Network are heavily tied into the crypto-currency Bitcoin because it relies heavily on BTC to conduct its cashier functions. With the steady January decline in transaction fees and timeframes for this crypto-currency, the PWL network vaults back to the top of our list for offshore poker cashouts. The majority of BTC users now report same-day payouts to their wallets. Those asking for payment through more traditional methods, like bank wire and check, have also reported receiving their funds quickly.

We suspected that December's downturn in PWL Network payment processing was a temporary state of affairs, and events have proven us correct. Ignition, Bodog, and Bovada are continuing their fine tradition of rapidly getting money into the hands of their customers

Winning Poker Network Payouts

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

WPN Payouts Feb. 2018

WPN Withdrawal Methods Chart REPORT SCORE: 9.2 (-0.3 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 8th worldwide.

The Winning Poker Network has dropped down to 2nd place after a brief stint at the top of the pile in December. Its payment speeds are still quite enviable although the two- and three-hour cashouts via crypto-coins that we saw at the end of last year appear to have lengthened to a more sustainable 12 - 24 hours, which is still fine for people searching for same-day payouts. More irritating is that many people who tried to withdraw with crypto-currencies had to submit additional info via email. We here at ProfRB attempted to cash out with the digital coin NXT, but each of our five withdrawals was declined for one reason or another. This is only a minor problem, however, and people sticking to the major cryptos, like BTC, LTC, and ETH, should have no issues. Checks are also being delivered within a few days.

Americas Cardroom Play Now Banner

The Winning Poker Network opened up a realm of possibilities with the addition of dozens of crypto-currencies to its cashier last year. There's still some room for improvement streamlining the process especially for some of the more obscure coins, but overall, The Winning Poker Network is among the best of the best in online gaming payouts.

Chico Poker Network Payouts

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

CPN Payouts Feb. 2018

Chart of Chico Network Withdrawal Options REPORT SCORE: 9.1 (-0.2 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.

The Chico Poker Network continues to pay out winners honestly, but we had to deduct some points because of a couple of players stating that they had to wait awhile to receive their cash. These delays were associated with old-school processors, like bank wire and eWallet, and most users can avoid them by dealing in Bitcoin, Ethereum, or Litecoin instead., TigerGaming, and BetOnline all transact in multiple payment channels to give customers plenty of available options. They're continuing to serve players in the United States and all around the globe who are looking for reliable gambling sites.

Horizon Poker Network Payouts

Sites sharing this cashier include Intertops and Juicy Stakes.

Horizon Network Payout Times Feb. 2018

Horizon Network Withdrawals Chart REPORT SCORE: 8.7 (+0.1 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.

After a disappointing December, Intertops re-enabled Bitcoin withdrawals. While we did not find any accounts of users requesting withdrawals through BTC in January, the return of this popular payment method augurs well for the future. Nevertheless, sister site Juicy Stakes only supports BTC for deposits, not withdrawals, and this is a policy we hope changes in the near future. Cashouts by check are coming a little bit slower than the stated timeframes but still pretty fast all things considered.

Intertops has historically adjusted its payment options depending on market conditions while always giving players a reasonable way to request their money. We have faith in this company's integrity and competence, which we expect will be amply demonstrated throughout the remainder of 2018 and beyond.

Grand Poker Network Payouts

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

Grand Network Payments Feb. 2018

GPN Available Payout Methods REPORT SCORE: 7.6 (-0.2 from last month)
Key Stat: Opened for business in November of 2014.
Key Fact: Grand Poker is owned by the 5Dimes Group.

The Grand Poker Network continued its downtime throughout January, but it was scheduled to re-open Feb. 6. However, there were still technical problems to work out, and the network missed this deadline. The casino, sports, racebook, and other gambling divisions of the 5Dimes-related corporations were not affected by this interruption in service. The cashiers at all of these sites remained in operation, so payouts were not impacted. We hope that the network can get its act together and offer poker again soon.

Grand Network play now banner

We look forward to the relaunch of the Grand Poker Network and expect that the recent service outage was a one-off event that won't recur again going forward.

Nitrogen Sports Payouts

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

Nitrogen Sports Cashout Times Feb. 2018

Table of Withdrawal Methods at Nitrogen REPORT SCORE: 7.5 (EVEN  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.

It's the same old story at Nitrogen Poker: quick, no-nonsense, same-day payouts of Bitcoin hitting users' wallets without incident. Nothing major happened in January to upset this equation. Since Nitrogen pays all miners fees for one withdrawal per two-week period, the recent plunge in BTC network fees is largely invisible to customers although the firm itself is likely saving a bundle compared to what it was paying in December.

Nitrogen is mainly a sportsbook, but its poker room offers a ton of benefits, like freerolls and free bets for those who put in volume.

SwCPoker Payouts

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

SwCPoker Payouts for Feb. 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.

SwCPoker keeps pleasing its users with blazing-fast same-day payout processing times. Player volume is fairly small, which means it's hard to get our hands on many first-hand reports of cashouts, but from what we hear, there are no problems at SwC. This site's decision to focus on Bitcoin and only Bitcoin as a payment method is perhaps the reason it can process these transactions so quickly.

SwC is a one-stop destination for many kinds of poker, including No Limit Texas Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha, HORSE, Open Face Chinese, and more.

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 has some pretty good software, but we advise our readers to stay away. It has a long history of making moves that are detrimental to the poker community, including banning winners, reducing promotions, and even charging fees on every withdrawal after the first in a year. It is paying out cashouts – for now – albeit with delays and unnecessary 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

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
