We have emailed you on multiple occasions over the past couple of months to ask you to identify the source of funds you use to play on Global Poker. This request relates to important anti-money laundering regulations designed to safeguard players. In order to continue playing on Global Poker, we are obliged to make this request of each player who reaches a certain level of activity on our site.

Here are examples of the kinds of documents that can be used, depending on your personal situation. You don't need to send all documents, just the ones that explain the source of your funds.

  • Employment – recent payslip, pension (payslips and pension slips to be issued within the last 6 months; the more recent the better)
  • Self-employment – latest tax return
  • Sale of property – certified contract of sale
  • Sale of securities – share certificate, contract notes or cash-in statements
  • Inheritance – will/grant of probate
  • Winnings from lottery/betting/casino/poker – certificate of win or bank statement
  • Bank statement – showing progressive balance and significant credits.

You can send the documents to the secured email address

If you would like to discuss this further, please let us know in the email and one of our VIP Hosts will be in touch to provide you with more details.

Please also include the following details:

  • Your full name
  • Phone number
  • Best time for us to call
  • Your Global Poker screen name
  • A brief explanation of the documents you have provided

Why Should You Verify Your Account?

Verifying your Global Poker account will allow you to get even more out of your Global Poker experience. Once verified you will have access to an enhanced array of features including a greater selection of Gold Coin packages to choose from as well as being on your way to redeeming Sweeps Coins prizes!

Account Verification is also important as it helps us to ensure that everybody who is playing our site is a real player who is here to enjoy a fun game of poker - just like you. This ensures we maintain a positive, safe community of players, so you can enjoy the fun, social and rewarding poker experience you've come to expect from us and that we're proud to provide.

Benefits of Verifying Your Account

There are two main benefits to verifying your account:

  1. Increased Purchase Limits
    All new accounts are limited in the amount of Gold Coins that can be purchased prior to being verified. Once you verify your account, you'll instantly be upgraded to our full suite of purchases, allowing you to purchase the Gold Coin package that you want, when you want.
  2. Win Real Cash Prizes!
    Having played on our Sweeps Coins tables, you know how great it feels to play online social poker with the added thrill of winning real cash prizes. In order to redeem that sweet cash prize and before we can transfer any winnings to your nominated bank account, we need to be able to prove your nominated bank account is yours and that you are you (we'd hate to give your winnings to someone else!).

Verification is a quick and easy process, which involves checking your identity through your Photo ID and your current address. You'll need to upload a photo of both your Photo ID and your Proof of Address.

Photo ID

You can use any of the following forms of Photo ID:

  • Driver's License
  • Passport
  • Goverment-issued ID

Proof of Address

Documents accepted for Proof of Address are:

  • Current Driver's License
  • Government-issued ID
  • Bank statement*
  • Utility bill* (gas, water, electricity, phone, waste disposal)
  • Government-issued letter*

* Bank statement, utility bill or government-issued letter documents must be dated within the last 6 months. The document should be entirely visible with all four corners, showing your Name, Address and Date of Issue.
