PokerStars Starts Cashing Out US Players


According to Card Player, PokerStars started to pay up the US cashouts. PokerStars sent an email to to all of their US customers yesterday.

According to the email sent by PokerStars, all US players can now withdraw their money out from PokerStars. PokerStars urges that every player withdraws all their money out. There will be delays in the cashouts as PokerStars tells, the amount of withdraws will be huge.

Every account below $1 will be ignored¨and those funds will be left to PokerStars. PokerStars is thinking of donating them to charity.

There’s no information about the FPP points. You can use FPP points in their VIP shop, but apparently US players are banned from there as well.

Three different methods to get your money:

  • Wire Transfer (minimum $50,000)
  • Check (minimum $100)
  • Direct Bank Transfer (minimum $1)

Here’s the PokerStars email:

“In light of recent developments, PokerStars is no longer offering real money play to residents of the United States of America and its territories.

The PokerStars Cashier is now available for you to cash out the funds in your real money account balance. We strongly recommend that you use the bank transfer option; to use it, you will need to have your current banking information at hand.

Please note that due to the expected high volume of cashout requests, we anticipate a delay in processing and delivery of your funds. Rest assured that your funds are safe and we will process your request as soon as possible.

Please contact if you experience any issues.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
