Receiving Checks from PokerStars


Depending on your country of residence, PokerStars offers players the option of receiving checks in any of the following currencies:

  • Euros
  • Swedish Kronor

    The exchange rate you will receive is displayed on the Cashier's Cash Out page when you select the check option . For Swedish Kronor currency, the exchange rate offered is updated every weekday at around 7:30 PM (EST) based on Reuters rates taken from their website. The Euro exchange rate offered is updated several times a day Monday through Friday based on Reuters rates taken from their website.

    There are no fees charged by PokerStars to issue a check in any of the available currencies. However, we cannot be responsible for any charges made by banks or other financial institutions for banking or cashing checks. Furthermore, many of our checks are issued across borders, and some banks or financial institutions charge additional fees for handling international checks. Before requesting a check, we suggest that you check with your bank or financial institution for any charges that you may incur when banking or cashing your check.

    We strongly advise that you deposit your check at a reputable bank or financial institution, and avoid using a check cashing store.

    All checks will be delivered by courier and are expected to arrive within 7 business days. To be able to use our courier service we will need your contact phone number and your address must not be a PO Box or rural route address.

    Checks are sent to the full name and mailing address listed in your PokerStars account at the time you make your cashout request. If your check is sent to an incorrect name or mailing address, you will incur a fee to place a stop-payment order on this check.

    For the minimum and maximum check amount in your country of registration with PokerStars, please see the PokerStars Cashier. Only one check will be processed per week.

    Checks in all currencies are normally sent for processing every business day from Monday to Friday.

    How does the exchange rate conversion work?

    PokerStars uses the prevailing mid-market rate provided by Reuters (plus a small fee if applicable) to convert your PokerStars account currency to your cashout currency.  For additional information, please read our Real Money Transaction Processing and Currency Conversion Terms and Conditions.
