It’s always free to play on Global Poker, no purchase is necessary. However, anytime you run low on Gold Coins you can easily purchase more in the Store. There are plenty of packages available to suit every pocket, and there are some great deals too.

To purchase a package, go to the Store (you’ll see it top right corner of the window) and select the package that best suits your needs.

If you would like more information about Global Poker Gold Coins, click here. And if you need any help, get in touch with our Customer Support Team.

Purchase Limits

If you don’t verify your Global Poker account, the amount of purchases you can make will be limited. This limit deters fraudulent behavior on our website. The purchase limit for a non-verified account is $3,000 over a 30-day period, while for a verified account it is $12,000 over a 30-day period.

One of the benefits of verifying your account is that purchase limits are much higher, so if you’d like to make larger purchases (more than mentioned above) and you haven’t verified your account, simply follow these steps. You’ll have your account verified in no time!

For accounts that have been verified, not only are the purchase limits higher, the redemption process is quicker too.

Payment Options

You can make purchases quickly and easily on Global Poker, with a variety of cards and methods. We accept Mastercard and American Express debit and/or credit cards. You may also use the online wallet, Skrill, which will allow you to make purchases and receive redemptions in a matter of moments. We are continuously adding to our payment options, so look out for updates. If you have any comments or suggestions about our payment options, let us know here.

Purchase Delays

Sometimes things take longer than we’d like. Who doesn’t know that annoying feeling when faced with the spinning beachball, or when your phone suddenly bricks for no apparent reason? It’s the same when making a purchase. Normally it’s a simple, quick and easy process and the Gold Coins you purchased are reflected in your account immediately.

However, sometimes it can take longer than this and we appreciate it’s frustrating. If after 24 hours your purchase hasn’t been reflected in your account, please let us know and we will investigate. Send us an e-mail, please just include the date, time and receipt number of the purchase and your username so we can quickly locate your account and the purchase information.

Transaction History

You can view your transaction history for the last six months within your account. Click the “Menu” button in the upper-left corner of the screen and choose “Transaction History”.

Within the game, the system doesn’t retain information beyond the last six months, so if you’d like to know and view your transaction history beyond that timeframe, please contact our friendly Customer Support Team who will be happy to help you with your enquiry.
