(note about Banking - Some times your funds maybe "Held")
What are Held Funds?
funds form part of your total cash balance and relate to your poker
winnings in the preceding 24 hours, i.e. if you sit at a cash table at
3pm and leave the table at 4pm with winnings, those winnings will
appear in your held funds total until 4pm the next day when they will
automatically released. The one exception to this is where held funds
are used to play poker, which is explained in more detail below. These
funds are shown as held whilst Sky Poker performs routine checks to
protect you/us the customers against any potential fraud such as chip
dumping and/or collusion.
Can I use Held Funds to Play Poker?
can use your held funds to play poker. If you currently have any held
funds and sit at a cash table, join a Sit 'n Go table, or join a
tournament, Sky Poker will use your held funds in the first instance to
fund your selected game, i.e. If you have £ 20 in held funds and you
join a £ 22 tournament we will fund your entry with the £ 20 from your
held funds and £ 2 from your normal cash balance.
When are Held Funds Released?
your unused held funds are released 24 hours from the time
you left the table and the winnings became held. Once these funds are
released you can then withdraw or transfer these funds to other Sky
products such as casino, games and sportsbook.
