New York players???

drdick posted this 12 September 2016

Can you play in poker games if you live in New York state? Can you accept cash winnings from WSOP if you live in New York? I hear so many different variations. Would like to play online poker but I want to be able to collect my winnings also.....if legal.

Players can play on as long as they are physically playing from within the states of Nevada or New Jersey. It does not matter where they are a resident of.

For the most part players fund their accounts via electronic check (ACH), credit/debit cards, or by physically presenting cash at a casino either in Atlantic City or Las Vegas (please see our deposit options pages for more details about which Caesars casinos accept cash deposits). Likewise you would have the option of withdrawing funds via ACH or debit/credit card. Withdrawals can be requested from anywhere (not just New Jersey/Nevada). The only stipulation is that you may be required to withdraw to the same payment method that you deposited with. The exception to that would be if you wish to collect your balance in cash at one of our casinos.

For instance, if you deposit $100 via ACH then when you want to withdraw your options would be to withdraw to the same bank account you deposited from or to request a withdrawal from cash at one of our casinos. You would not be able to request a withdrawal to your credit/debit card.

You can also request a physical check be mailed to the address that the account is registered to. Your mailing address does not need to be in New Jersey or Nevada for us to mail you a check.

You can call or email customer support if you have specific questions about payment methods.
