Wednesday oct 6th I uploaded documents around 3 pm MST. I checked back at 8 pm and they were approved so I submitted my withdrawal via mailed check. I was fine with having them mail the check to me because I just didn't want to deal with bitcoins or other cryptos at this point. I am ok with not having the money for a few weeks time, no rush. The only information that was provided to me was that the check would be delivered via FedEx. Ok, so I figured I would wait a few days and then inquire about tracking info, whatever. I am super surprised that it showed up at my house today @ 3 pm MST. I am beyond thrilled at the quick turnaround and easy process they have in place!!! Money is in the bank!

Excellent work ACR, it simply could not have worked better!!!

Copied from another thread.

SO... after my bank cashed the check for me on 10/8/21 or so, two days later they reverse the charge citing that it was a foreign check and they could not cash it. I didn't notice for a while and then they told me I could come pick up the check and cash it at a bigger bank who could handle foreign transactions more readily. I grabbed the check from them and took it to another bank, making sure to ask them if they'd be able to process it. They assured me they could, and told me it should process in 2-14 days. I told them I would wait the two weeks and check back. I checked back. Turns out it could actually take up to 180 days for the funds to appear?? Are you kidding me? Ok so, I thought it was too good to be true... and it is. I hope my money will show before 6 months pass...

Does anyone know if there is a way to expedite this process? And don't tell me I should have cashed out via crypto... I am already kicking myself for that.

I had something similar about 5-6 years ago it was with another poker room. One cheque took 45 days to clear the second one was for much less and only took 5 days to clear.

The banks can expedite it for you if they wanted, maybe contact them and find out if they can. Contact both the local bank you dropped it in and the one issuing the cheque. Hopefully you kept a copy of the cheque.

The poker rooms say cheque but most times they send you money orders. If it is a money order it should be able to be processed quickly. Not sure which one ACR gives out. You could probably reach out to ACR support and see if they have any solutions to your problem too.

Best of luck

I work in the accounting field and we send and receive foreign checks at times. I hate to say this but depending on the bank "yours and theirs" and what country they come from the times to clear the check can vary widely. Recently we sent one to france and it cleared within a week of being sent.. One sent to canada and cashed by the same bank just in there location took over a month to clear. Its random but not abnormal.
