AMEX Poker Sites

AMEX poker sites provide poker players with a quick and efficient banking solution. After it was founded in 1850, American Express became one of the leading express mail businesses before offering financial services such as money orders and traveler’s checks. In 1958, American Express unveiled its first credit card, which was subsequently issued to over 250,000 people. A year later, the company became the first financial institution to switch to plastic cards.

AMEX is now used by over 20 million people and represents 24% of all credit card transactions in the U.S. Unfortunately, the AMEX deposit option is not commonly found at most online poker sites. Players may not have many AMEX poker sites to choose from, but it is possible to link up an AMEX credit card to some e-wallet services. The e-wallet service can then be used to make deposits at most poker sites.

Using AMEX to deposit at Online Poker Sites

Today’s online poker sites make it possible to work through the deposit process in a matter of minutes. The process is even quicker if your playing on an iPad poker site. If you’re just getting started, you will first have to download and install the poker site’s software package. Load up the software and register for a real money poker account. Select the banking tab available in the main lobby to access all of the potential deposit options. Online poker sites that take real money deposits usually list credit card options such as AMEX, Visa and MasterCard individually. If this is not the case, look for a general credit card deposit option that is used for all credit card deposits.

If you have ever made an online purchase using a credit card, the AMEX deposit form should look familiar. You will need to obtain certain pieces of information from your credit card such as the card number, expiration date and the security code on the back of the card. Other pieces of information such as your full name, date of birth, home address and telephone number are usually required. Most AMEX poker sites allow you to save your AMEX credit card information as your preferred method of payment. This is useful for making quicker reload deposits and, although it may seem suspect to have sensitive financial information saved in an online system, the gaming software and infrastructure at quality online poker sites help keep the information as secure as possible.

Once you have double-checked all of the credit card information, enter the amount you want to deposit, click submit and wait for the confirmation page to appear.

Fees and Processing Times

AMEX poker sites pride themselves on offering members instant access to free deposits. Also, all successful deposits are confirmed instantly so you can use the poker funds immediately. This works because – like all other credit cards – an AMEX deposit simply creates a charge on your credit card account to be paid off at a later date. You then receive the newly deposited funds in your poker account to be used in any and all real money poker games and tournaments.
