Carbon Poker has recently moved away from the Merge Gaming cashier system, and has now implemented an independently owned and run cashier powered by Jazette. As most bettors should know, a cashier is the banking service that is provided by online sportsbooks, casinos, and poker rooms.
It is used by the members of these websites whenever they wish to deposit money into their accounts or want to withdraw money from their accounts. Depending on the amount of members and payout requests, the system can get backlogged and create a longer wait time. This is what Carbon has tried to reduce and eliminate through the implementation of their own cashier system.
Banking Options Available at Carbon
With the new cashier system, they have improved and added on a few more options that members can use to either deposit or withdraw money. They have added a great feature allowing members to use their VISA credit cards, as well as MasterCard, since these are the two most popular and widely used credit cards and deposit methods. This will encompass bettors and players from the U.S. as well as those located outside of the U.S.
They do have some deposit limits on each of their options, such as:
VISA credit cards have a max deposit limit of $1K daily up to $6K monthly, with a min. deposit of $20.
Cash Transfers (Western Union, etc) have the exact same max limits as VISA, but with a minimum deposit amount of $100.
Skrill/Moneybookers has also the same max deposit limit, and a $20 min deposit amount.
Lastly, we have NETeller, which has NO LIMIT as your max deposit amount – that is fantastic if you are sure of your bet or game; as for the minimum deposit amount, it is also $20.
The monthly deposit limits could increase if the bettor requests it and Carbon agrees to the increase; a case by case scenario, so just give them a call after doing some playing and betting here and there to build up your history with them.
Their withdrawal options, limits, and expected wait times are:
Cashier’s Check or Gift Card has a max withdrawal limit of $2,500 and a min amount of $50 with an approximate processing time of 6 to 8 weeks.
Wire Transfers have NO LIMIT for the max withdrawal amount, but the min is $50 and also takes 6 to 8 weeks of processing time.
Skrill/Moneybookers shares the exact same amounts as Wire Transfers – non for max, and $50 for the min, but their processing time is much faster with 3 to 5 business days only!
NETeller is as good as Skrill with the same amounts and same waiting times, making the ewallets the best options for all players.
For those players that live in the U.S., the banking options for depositing and withdrawing do not include Skrill and NETELLER unfortunately, as those are only available to the international members, non-US players in other words.
Benefits of New Carbon Cashier
As Carbon used to have a cashier that was run in conjunction with other Merge Gaming websites, and with the overload of members from these different sites, the system would tend to get a lot of backlog and delays with the payouts. This is one thing the new Carbon cashier system will do, reduce the amount of wait time a member of Carbon Sports or Carbon Poker between has to wait while they request a payout and when they receive it. They also provide better banking options for their members allowing them to make deposits using their VISA credit cards.
An intrinsic effect of having a better cashier service is that everything will start to work smoother for both the members and Carbon. It could bring in more bettors and players, which will in turn help Carbon improve other services. It is a great cause and effect; Carbon is fixing a long-standing issue that will make everyone’s lives easier and safer (not that it wasn’t before, but not having your funds in time could cause issues in live to some people).
