Black Chip poker has some of the best payment processing options in the online poker industry. With plenty of options to best suit your needs and your location Black Chip Poker allows you to deposit and withdrawal from your account with ease.
You can see all balances from your account here including cash balance of monies available to you, your Frequent Player Points Total, and your Player Points you’ve accumulated through your play. Please be reminded that money that is on the table or in play will not be shown as money that is currently available to you.
To either fund or withdrawal from your poker account click on either the ‘Deposit’ or ‘Withdraw’ button highlighted at the bottom of the cashier. Options are subject to change so please make it a point to review which method would best suit your needs.
You may also choose to cancel a withdrawal. This option is available to you at the left hand side of the screen under the ‘My Cashier’>'Pending Payout' tab.
You can join an online ring game either by double clicking on the highlighted table or else using the ‘Join Game’ button after you’ve selected the desired table in the games lobby.
In doing so a table will then open:
Game buttons – When play indicates that it’s your turn to act you will be shown a series of buttons to choose from.
Choose the corresponding button according to your decision. You may also use the pot calculating wager amount buttons when choosing to bet. These will automatically wager the specified portion of the pot currently being played dependent upon your selection. For example, if you would like to bet half of the pot, use the ‘half pot’ button and the software will automatically make the wager of exactly one half of whatever the monies are currently in the pot.
Pre-Action Boxes – This is a handy feature for those of you who are multi-tabling. Should you know what you would like to do in a hand prior to it being your action, the pre-action buttons allow you to make the selection and will automatically carry out your selection once it’s your turn.
Players who enjoy Multi-Table action often use this feature to play more efficiently.
History – On the top right hand corner of the screen you’ll find the “History” button. This allows you to review online Poker hands that you have currently played, either by reading the hand history of a particular hand or by reviewing the hand being played out in our state of the art hand re-player.
Much like a DVD player you have in your home, you may choose to skip, fast forward, stop, replay, or pause each hand like you were watching a movie.
