Yes, usually at the deposit stage, there is some device that shows you exactly how much of your precious GBP will be converted into those US dollars.
EG. If you submit a deposit of £100, the converter thing will show you that it will amount to $200 (approx). After you submit, and assuming it is accepted, when you go to the lobby screen you will then see (immediately in most cases) that your balance is at $200.
