Reasons to play only at EU Licensed Poker Rooms

There are many reasons to play your online poker strictly at poker rooms licensed by a country that is part of the European Union. Here are some of the reasons.

#1 Tax Free Poker – While we are not experts in this field we do know that most EU citizens are not taxed on money won from a company with a EU gaming license. Check with your accountant for details.

#2 Game Fairness – The licensing requirements in European Countries is generally much stricter than in other areas of the world. This leads to the games being audited more frequently and in much more detail. This provides a lot more confidence that the games are fair.

#3 Financial Security – Because the license requirements are much stricter in the EU; for the most part EU licensed rooms will be much more financial secure than rooms in other areas. While this is not set in stone, it is however a good rule of thumb.

European Poker Banking Methods

Credit Card – Most Online Poker Rooms accept credit card deposits and many will also process withdrawals back to Visa. If you can’t withdrawal back to the credit card you can always cash out with check or an alternate payment method.

Neteller – Neteller is a world leader in online gambling transactions. You can load your Neteller account with your bank account or with your credit card and then send funds to the poker room using a Neteller deposit. Most online poker rooms will let people cash out to Neteller. This is a great option for those looking to move money between poker rooms often or for those who do not feel comfortable sharing their credit card information with many sites.

Moneybooker – This method works similar to Neteller, the only disadvantage is that only about 70% of the sites accept this method where almost all sites accept Neteller.

PayPal – is a world leader in online payments in general, not just gambling transactions. There are two sites on our top 15 list which accept Paypal – Ladbrokes and Betfair Poker.

Other Methods: Depositing at online poker rooms is not difficult. There are literally dozens of other banking methods available at various EU licensed sites.
