Hi all,

I just want to say hi to the folks out there that play cards just like me. There are a few reasons why I joined on here.

1. I just won $5k+ and I am having trouble knowing how to get my money. I received my checks via the mail and deposited the first two. They both got returned do to the bank finding out the are foreign gambling checks after 2 weeks.

***The checks are from Ignition Poker***

I just received the checks back in the mail, and they have my bank stamp on the back. My bank is a small local bank, so I am wondering if I can bring the checks to Chase (I keep reading they take the checks) or go a different route. I am trying to stay away from bitcoin as my State does not use it yet

This is where you guys hopefully come in! I just would like to hear from people that have had to go through this before and what should I do with the checks at this point. It is frustrating for me to just have $5k and no way to get it. Right now they are just paper 😡

2. I love poker, and it is my favorite hobby. I have been playing for 15 years now and always love a good bad beat story

3. I always see your site has freerolls, and hopefully can play with the folks on here to talk trash to each other for bragging rights 😉

I use cryptocurrency to withdraw money from most sites, and have never had a problem. If you've been playing poker for 15 years, then you're an experienced player and I think it's time to use more modern methods. I hope you can solve your problems soon.

My State doesn't use it at all, and if they did I would love to use it. Unfortunately converting bitcoin to USD is a nightmare from what I can see.

You got to withdrawal to your wallet... then get it to coinbase... then sell it and I am just not familiar enough with it to put that amount of money in it.

Jonathan Little helps a little, but it sounds really like a nightmare the amount of changes he says

The problems that you described above are currently haunting many players and the fact that bitcoin will continue to be a strong currency with which you can work also does not inspire confidence.On my account, what should happen-because a lot of payment systems and payments are closed to people and this means something.

It's easier, cheaper, and quicker than what you are currently trying to do.

I'd suggest learning how to set up a BTC wallet, it's not hard.

At first, I also thought it was very difficult. But I tried once, learned to do it, and have no problems. In order not to risk a large amount, try to withdraw for example $ 100 and you will understand that this is a really good method.

Use skrill or neteller. Only in the case of Skrill, you also need to indicate that the money is in-game.

From poker wallets, I personally use payeer.com
And it seemed more profitable to me to replenish it with Litecoin.
There, and commissions are invisible, and if you replenish the poker room, then the transfer to the poker room takes place within 5-10 minutes.

Whoa!! What state are you living in where Bitcoin is illegal? I thought Bitcoin and altcoins were legal across the country? Use bread wallet as a middle man and then send your money to Coinbase to convert it to US dollar

You can use bitcoin in any state. get your withdrawal in bitcoin, it's 2021 you know?

Check out bitpay.com if you don't want to mess around with selling your coin on coinbase or binance ect.

They offer a free debit card and bitcoin wallet (among other crypto's). You have to apply for the debit card like you would from any local bank in the US, but once approved they'll ship out your card to you in the mail.

Once ignition sends your bitcoin to the wallet that you setup, you simply click "add funds" on your bitpay App and it automatically converts your bitcoin into
>>USD <<cold hard cash, and loads it on your debit card. The fee's are just the normal bitcoin network fee's that you pay for a transaction.

You are then free to use it like any other debit card, and can even withdrawal $$$ at an atm using a pin number of your choosing (no atm fee's if you use an allpoint atm, which there a thousands upon thousands of across the US, CVS always has one inside ect).

I had the exact same problem a number of years ago at Everest Poker.

I received 5 cheques from them, and all got returned by my bank, with my bank's stamp on the back.

I went to my bank, and they advised that the bank Everest was using had no working relationship with any Canadian bank, so the cheques couldn't be honoured.

Fortunately, I contacted Everest, and advised them of the problem. They weren't aware of that type of situation, but that they would look into it.

A few days late, they contacted me to advise that that was indeed the situation. They apologized, and cancelled the cheques. They then issued an international money order, which I had no problems with.

It's a really unusual situation.

I don't know if you can use the info that solved my problem, but I would suggest that you try to contact Ignition. You might not be the first to have this problem.

Good luck.
