To play on Pokerstars, you need to sign up, download some free software on a mobile device or computer, and choose a deposit method. The specific ones available depend on your location. The minimum deposit is $10 unless stated otherwise. Generally, the following options are possible:
- Maestro Card
- Local Bank Transfer
- Direct Bank Transfer
- Wire Transfer
- Apple Pay
All options are safe and secure. If you want to fund your account and get started as soon as possible, check out the Fast Deposit feature. To use this feature, look for the respective logo next to the deposit method in the Cashier. You have the option to create a ‘Fast Deposit Account’ and operate right from the table.
The reason this operator is so safe is because they hold account balances and players’ funds in segregated accounts. They are not used to cover the operator’s costs, which isn’t the case across the board. A leading European bank manages these segregated accounts so the operator can fulfil their monetary obligations toward users at all times. This arrangement provides further reassurance that balances are safe.
The operator lets users manage their own playing budgets. As part of this, users can set their own deposit and withdrawal limits.
It is very fast and easy to make a withdrawal. Simply go to the ‘Cashier’ section in the desktop Lobby and choose ‘Withdraw’. Then, enter an amount you want to withdraw, press Enter, then Submit.
