InstaDebit

INSTADEBIT is an easy and secure way to deposit funds online. With INSTADEBIT, deposit directly from your bank account without worrying about disclosing your financial information.

An INSTADEBIT deposit is processed like an electronic check which allows you to make safe, secure and immediate deposits directly from your bank account to your Full Tilt Poker account.

Using INSTADEBIT

To complete a deposit using INSTADEBIT, simply follow these steps:

  • Log on to Full Tilt Poker and click on the “Cashier” button in the Lobby to open the Cashier window.
  • Click on the “Make a Deposit” button then on the INSTADEBIT logo.
  • Enter the amount you wish to deposit.
  • Click on “Deposit Now”, confirm the details and then click on “OK”.
  • If it is your first deposit on Full Tilt Poker, you will need to review and confirm your personal information. The name on your INSTADEBIT account must match the name on your Full Tilt Poker account. Then Click on “Submit”.
  • To complete your deposit, you will need to enter the INSTADEBIT website by clicking on “Continue To Secure Site”. A new browser window will open.
  • Enter your existing INSTADEBIT account login details or create an INSTADEBIT account and then follow the steps to complete the deposit request to your Full Tilt Poker account.
  • If approved, the funds will be credited to your Full Tilt Poker account balance immediately and you will receive an email notification.

If your INSTADEBIT account contains sufficient funds to cover the deposit amount, the funds are moved from your INSTADEBIT account to your Full Tilt Poker account. If the balance in your INSTADEBIT account is insufficient to cover the deposit amount, the entire deposit amount is requested as a single transaction from your bank account .

Funds deposited via INSTADEBIT are immediately available in your Full Tilt Poker account even though the funds aren't received from your bank account instantly.

Please keep in mind that you have 10 minutes to complete the deposit. If you exceed this time, the transaction will timeout and be unsuccessful. You will need to start again by selecting INSTADEBIT from the Full Tilt Poker Cashier screen.

As it can take up to seven days for the funds to be received from your bank, your deposit is in an 'uncleared' status at Full Tilt Poker for seven days after you make an INSTADEBIT deposit. While a deposit is uncleared, you may not withdraw funds, request player to player transfers or transfer to your paired PokerStars account unless you have a Real Money balance that is greater than the total amount of your uncleared INSTADEBIT deposits. Any portion of your Real Money balance that is greater than the total amount of your uncleared deposits may be used normally and is available for withdrawal or transfer.

INSTADEBIT limits

Please visit the Cashier to determine the INSTADEBIT limits set by Full Tilt Poker. Deposit limits are displayed within the Cashier when you hover over each payment method and withdrawal limits are displayed before selecting the withdrawal option.

INSTADEBIT also sets its own limits, which can be found by logging into your INSTADEBIT account at www.instadebit.com.

Fees for using INSTADEBIT

Currency Exchange

Full Tilt Poker uses the prevailing mid-market rate provided by XE (plus a small fee if applicable) to convert your deposits to your Full Tilt Poker account currency. For additional information, please see our Transaction Processing and Currency Conversion page.
