Carbon Poker Payout Report

Note: Carbon Poker does not currently accept new U.S. players. Existing accounts remain open.

Carbon PokerCarbon Poker moved to a new cashier managed by Jazette Enterprises in November 2012.  This began the mass exodus of skins that used the main Merge Gaming cashier.  This included the loss of Hero Poker, RPM Poker, Iron Duke, PokerView and Black Chip Poker.  One of the reasons for the loss of skins was that player to player transfers were dropped.  This caused many players that enjoyed the ability to trade money to cash out faster to stop playing on the network.  It also ruined the staking business on Merge Gaming, which in turn hurt its traffic.

Checks are the only withdrawal option at Carbon Poker for most U.S. players.  Those that deposited by Western Union may have the option available for withdrawals.  Players outside the U.S. must receive cashouts via bank wire.  Skrill is no longer available to players outside the U.S.  Players with pending Skrill withdrawals were contacted in April 2015 to submit bank wire information.

Carbon Poker Checks

The only option for Carbon Poker players to withdraw is by check, which arrive by FedEx.  These checks arrive in 3-4 weeks.  That is much better than the speeds in 2015 that ran as long as four months.  The faster speeds only occurred deep into the 2015 NFL season.

The summer of 2016 saw withdrawal slow down again.  For that reason, we must suggest other sites that accept Americans. These include BetOnline and Americas Cardroom.

The maximum withdrawal amount is $2,500.  There is no fee for requesting a check once per year.  Additional withdrawals have a 3% fee.

Players were once able to stack check cashout requests.  This meant that more than one check could be pending at the same time.  That is no longer the case.  Players may not initiate a new withdrawal request until the previous one has been processed.

Some players have Bitcoin, cash transfer and bank wire available for withdrawals.  This is not the norm.  These methods are faster than checks are tend to only be available to VIP players.  The fee is 5% for Bitcoin and 10-15% for cash transfers, if available.

Carbon Poker Deposits

There are two deposit options at Carbon Poker.  One is Visa, which has a $20 minimum and $1,000 maximum.  The other is Western Union, which has a $100 minimum and $1,000 maximum.  Inactive and VIP players have been known to receive a refund of fees associated with Western Union deposits by contacting support before making the deposit.  Players that wish to make larger deposits may contact support for other options.
