Payouts and Withdrawals Report

  Last updated on September 11, 2019 - Data through August 2019  

The situation for real money online gaming payouts has stabilized quite a bit. This is especially true for the top three sites on our list, which had been shuffling around amongst each other for about a year. In August, they seemed to have settled into a pattern of same-day or next-day Bitcoin payouts. Most of the other sites on our report are also faithfully honoring withdrawal requests without subjecting users to any undue hassles.

PWL Network Payouts September 2019PWL Cashout Methods Chart

ProfRB.com REPORT SCORE: 9.1 (-0.1 from last month)
Key Stat: Bitcoin payment times within the 2-day processing guidelines.
Key Fact: Ignition and Bovada are still the #1 US-facing online poker sites in terms of player traffic.

The PWL Network, after amazing performance in July, pulled back somewhat to what seem to be more permanently sustainable cashout times. Most individuals are still receiving their payouts either on the same day or next day though there are a few who have to wait substantially longer. BTC withdrawals were down for a brief period during the month, but everything was shortly restored to normal, posing only minor inconvenience to customers.

Key Fact: Trails only Ignition in US-facing player traffic and is 9th worldwide.

Though the Winning Poker Network has caught a lot of flack in the past several months for its botched new software rollout, cashier functions remain largely unaffected. Average processing times remain well under two days, and a substantial number of folks actually get same-day payouts.

CPN Payouts September 2019Chart of Chico Network Withdrawal Options

ProfRB.com REPORT SCORE: 9.1 (+0.1 from last month)
Key Stat: BetOnline and SB.ag support six different cryptos.
Key Fact: Firmly seated in 3rd in terms of player traffic for US friendly poker sites.

July marked a noteworthy improvement in payment speeds for BetOnline, Sportsbetting.ag, and TigerGaming on the Chico Network. From having to wait sometimes more than three days during the second quarter of the year, withdrawers started to report same-day payout fulfillment. This trend continued on into August, and we're optimistic that the network has every chance to pull ahead of its competitors should this excellent performance continue.

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.

Intertops remains one of the most reputable bookies and poker rooms serving the United States and other offshore jurisdictions. Though not among the fastest-paying of them, it still consistently delivers two- and three-day withdrawals to its valued customers.

Grand Poker Network Payouts

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

Grand Network Payments September 2019GPN Available Payout Methods

ProfRB.com REPORT SCORE: 8.3 (EVEN from last month)
Key Stat: Opened for business in November of 2014.
Key Fact: Grand Poker is owned by the 5Dimes Group.

As one of the smaller entities that we track, Grand Poker tends not to attract quite the same level of interest as some of the other organizations on our list, and user comments on the payout experience during August were pretty light. Nevertheless, we feel confident in reiterating our praise for Grand and its parent company 5Dimes because they have been leaving customers satisfied for years.

AVOID THESE NETWORKS

 

Merge Gaming Network

Avoid the Merge Gaming Network

ProfRB.com 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 site that used to be the king of USA online poker, but we now caution our readers to avoid it. It has an unenviable history of making questionable decisions that are detrimental to the player community, including booting winning players from its site, cutting back drastically on promotions, and even charging a fee on every additional withdrawal beyond one in a year.

That is correct: They only offer one free withdrawal per year and after that charge 5% of the amount of your withdrawal even for crypto-currency withdrawals, which generally cost just a few pennies! For example, if you were to initiate a maximum withdrawal for $2,500 (yes, they have low withdrawal limits relative to other gambling sites), the site would charge fully $125 for the withdrawal and you would receive $2,375 only. A Bitcoin withdrawal like this would cost a dollar or so to process even if ramping up the fees in order to garner the highest processing priority. We suppose that Merge Gaming Network just keeps the remaining $124 and change as profit from your winnings. We don't agree with that behavior, and this is yet another reason that we do not recommend Carbon Gaming, Players Only, Sportsbook.com, or any of the companies operated by "Domain Holdings," formerly Jazette Enterprises.

For the moment, users are getting their money but with delays and annoying surcharges. Moreover, forum posts indicate that Carbon continues to confiscate players' balances based on flimsy rationalizations. In recent weeks, users experienced problems trying to connect to Merge Gaming servers, leading to speculation that the company was on its last legs.

We strongly encourage you to play at any of the other online poker rooms listed above and keep away from the Merge Gaming Network. Seriously, play anywhere else other than Carbon Poker, PlayersOnly, Sportsbook.com, and Superbook.

Global Poker

Global Poker is a Needless Risk

ProfRB.com REPORT SCORE: 7.5 (-0.1 from last month)
Key Stat: Global Poker's payment solutions, which don't include any cryptos, leave a lot to be desired.
Key Fact: There's no deposit bonus offer at Global and a lack of other promos.

Global Poker's Worldpay payout processing has caused plenty of headaches for users. While this seems to have improved in the past few months, there are yet some customers who have to wait a couple of weeks or even longer.

You see, Global's withdrawals via ACH bank transfer require individuals to submit a wealth of personal info, including bank statements, routing numbers, photo IDs, and in some instances, additional extra documents. Any errors or delays when sending this information to Global can throw a monkey wrench into the entire cashout process. Even worse, when there is an issue with a withdrawal, Global most often says nothing to the customer about it, instead waiting for the user to contact them!

Global used to boast of its Paypal support, which set it apart from other USA offshore poker sites, but its justifications for being allowed to transact via this e-wallet always seemed shaky at best. Now that Global uses Worldpay instead of Paypal, one of its major selling points has been nullified. In March, Global added support for Skrill, but given that Skrill explicitly states that its services cannot be used in the United States for either gambling or sweepstakes contests, the sustainability of this arrangement is questionable at best.

Apart from issues directly related to cashier expediency, Global hasn't exactly inspired confidence among the poker playing population. On July 22, 2019, the site crashed, and many users saw the funds they had in play at the time disappear from their balances. While most of this missing money was credited back within a couple of days, some customers had to contact support to have the necessary adjustments performed. Other players had credits issued to their balances but for incorrect or partial amounts. Only upon following up with site staff were the appropriate corrections made, and we assume that those who didn't notice the discrepancies just lost their money without being any the wiser.

While incidents like this happen from time to time at just about every online poker room, this isn't the first time Global has dropped the ball. Among the scandals that have occurred include the time Global exposed users' personal information on the web for about a year, a high-stakes individual who had to wait on his withdrawal for more than six months, and technical glitches during a major tournament series. You can read more about the history of this troubled site in our comprehensive Global Poker review.

Just recently, Global booted residents of Washington State from its room citing the Big Fish Casino case in which a federal judge ruled that even social casinos that use play chips are in violation of WA laws. Such alterations in the list of allowed jurisdictions is only to be expected from time to time in an industry like online gaming, but the way Global went about it left some frustrated. One WA customer had less than the $50 minimum withdrawal in his account and was told that he therefore could not cash out his funds notwithstanding the unusual circumstances.

The long-term viability of Global Poker is not really known for sure, so we recommend that you take a pass on Global Poker if you value the safety of your funds.

Thank you for the kind words David. Please feel free to share this page with your friends and family. Many people erroneously think that offshore sites have trouble paying players, and as this report has shown for half a decade now, that is wholly untrue!
