Send My Chips Offers Secure Poker Room to Poker Room Transfers

Share this
It is the rare breed of poker cat that only plays on one poker site. Blame it on boredom, taking advantage of promotions, or superstition - but the fact is most of us online poker players jump around from poker room to poker room. Of course that means that every time you want to go play at a different poker room, you have to fund that poker account.

Or maybe you have been in this situation; playing in a poker room where you have a low bankroll and you find a very juicy cash game but you don't have enough money to jump in to try to hook the fish. We have all found ourselves in the situation of wishing we had more money in our poker account at one poker room, while having a fat bankroll sitting in our account at another poker room – but we can't get our hands on it! Now, whether it is a juicy cash game or a great tournament that you want to get in, there is a cool new service that allows you to safely transfer money from one poker room to another!

Send My Chips was created to provide a safe and secure service for poker players to transfer their money from one poker room to another. Both poker players and the Poker Sites have grown tired of the scamming that occurs all too often on some poker forums. Scammers on the forums prey on poker players who want to initiate a player to player transfer, offering to do that for the player as a favor, then disappearing with their money. That is why Send My Chips was established, to bring an end to the fraud and provide an integrated and secure transfer method for the online poker industry.  Send My Chips has already proven to be a huge success, with several Poker Professionals having already joined the Send My Chips team.

Send My Chips is proud to have gained the trust and endorsement of Poker Professionals like Paul Jackson, who has been described as the most winning tournament player in the history of Ladbrokes Poker where he plays under the nickname "actionJack." Then there is Full Tilt sponsored player Dave “El Blondie” Colclough, who is considered one of the best Omaha players in the world, and another fan of the Send My Chips service, the cool, suave and sophisticated UK pro Marc Goodwin who plays with the moniker ‘Mr Pink’ at Mansion Poker.
As one of the poker pros stated, “This web site allows us to meticulously track who wants what transferred and to what site.”

Using this valuable new service is simple, just creating an account with Send My Chips will allow you to use the easy service and view all the past transactions you have made.  This can be done in three simple steps on their website:

•    Step 1: Select what Poker Site you are transferring the funds from.
•    Step 2: Select what Poker Site you wish to transfer the funds to.
•    Step 3: Enter in how much you wish to transfer.

Here is how it works: once the account is set up, online poker players can quickly sends funds to a Send My Chips poker account on Site A, and then Send My Chips uses their poker account on Site B to transfer that amount back to the requested player. The maximum amount players are allowed to transfer depends on the Sending From account and the security checks Send My Chips performs on that player’s account.  Since Send My Chips uses a unique Transfer Level System for rating players using their service, online Poker Sites are insured against possible fraudulent scams.  Level transfer limit numbers are assigned to members who use the Send My Chips service repeatedly using the following method:

1.    $100.00 Maximum over 7 Days
2.    $200.00 Maximum over 7 Days
3.    $1,000.00 over 7 Days
4.    $3,000.00 over 7 Days
5.    $10,000.00 over 7 Days

Because of the sensitive financial nature of Player Transfers, Send My Chips introduced their unique Player Level Checking service, which ensures that the poker player has a proven history with the online poker accounts they want to send transfers from. The greater the poker account history the player has, the higher the Level the player will be assigned. As the online poker player uses the service more, they will move up the Level System and be permitted to transfer more money at one time.

As more online poker rooms sign up for this valuable service, Send My Chips will add them to their member base. Currently the poker rooms that support the Since My Chips service are:

•    Cake Poker
•    Full Tilt Poker
•    UB Poker
•    Absolute Poker
•    Sun Poker
•    888/Pacific Poker
•    Chili Poker  

The only downside to using Send My Chips to transfer money from one of your online poker accounts to another is that it will cost you 5% per transaction. It is too bad online poker rooms don't pay the fee as a nice bonus to their players. But players can get a break on the fees, because Send My Chips started their 3% Happy Hour promotion that alerts loyal players via twitter when they offer a 3% deal on transactions across all Send My Chips listed sites. Players who want to be alerted about any special deals can follow Send My Chips on Twitter at

The perfect service would be free to poker players of course, but the next time you find that big guaranteed online poker tournament that you just have to play in, (but don't have the money in your poker account), the fee you pay may be nothing compared to the big score you could make in the tourney. And since transfers normally take less than half an hour, you can have your money in no time. In spite of the fees, it is nice to see Send My Chips offering a safe, trusted, and secure method for poker players to move their money from one poker room to another. Don't trust someone you don't know with your hard-earned money! The next time you need to transfer chips, check out the only safe way to get your money from one poker room to another at
