Tips and Hints NETeller Poker
Please be advised that some poker rooms will compare the e-mail address used in your poker account with the one that you used for NETeller. If these e-mail addresses do not match you may not be able to deposit money on your poker account using NETeller! Contact the poker room in question beforehand to make sure!
If you want to utilize your NETeller account primarily for depositing money into poker accounts you can choose US Dollars as your currency when playing mostly in poker rooms using $ (still the majority of them).
