Monday August 3,2015 : GOOD NEWS FOR PARTYPOKER PLAYERS
Veteran internet poker provider stops charging processor fees on most withdrawals.
In a move prompted by player requests, Party Poker has announced that it is no longer going to charge processing fees on bank transfers and card withdrawals.
The decision impacts withdrawals from MasterCard, Maestro, Visa, Kalixa Pay, Goplay prepaid MasterCard, ClickandBuy, Paypal and bank transfers, saving players around GBP 1.50 a time.
The changes do not embrace Skrill and Neteller, however, where players are still hit with a 3 percent processing fee.
Golan Shaked, director of games at Party Poker, explained that paying attention to player preferences was a priority with Party Poker, and a major issue raised at interactions with players had been the processing fees.
This had been largely addressed now, although there was still the issue of Skrill and Neteller, which Party Poker was working on, he said.
The PartyPoker blog noted this week that efforts are also underway to accelerate approvals and processing speeds on withdrawals.
