Is It Legal to Chargeback Poker Site Deposits?

When you sign up to any poker site online or even when you make use of a mobile poker app, you are agreeing to all of the terms and conditions associated with using those sites and apps, and as such you will be legally bound by all of those terms and conditions.

However, as you will often find yourself depositing by a credit card or debit card, that does of course mean that if you are unhappy about anything you have been offered at such a site or app or you feel you didn’t get what you paid for you could opt to perform a chargeback on your deposits.

When you perform a chargeback you are asking your bank or credit card issuer to reverse a payment you have made using a debit card or a credit card, and you will need to provide them with a very good reason for them to reverse that payment.

They will often immediately refund into your account the payment you are asking to reverse, and then will launch an investigation, if they find you have good cause and good reason to reverse that payment then they will not reclaim the payment they put back in your account, but if they find your complaint has no merit they will then once again deduct the payment they put back into your account and pay it back to the poker site.

Risks of Performing a Chargeback

One thing that I would like to point out to you about doing a chargeback, is that even if you have very good grounds to in all likelihood once you do perform one you are going to find yourself banned from playing at the poker site you charged back your deposit at.

Not only that buy you are also often going to find yourself banned from the poker network that poker site is on and any other poker sites that utilize the same financial processor too.

Choosing a Top Class Poker Site

There is of course one way that you are very rarely if ever at all going to run into any type of difficulties when playing poker online or when using a poker app as the ay you play real money poker, and that is to play only at the top rated poker sites.

Those will often be poker sites that operate land based gambling venues and most certainly it will always be the case that those poker sites are fully licensed and regulated in your own home country of residence too.
