A new online poker room, GlobalPoker.com, has opened this month promising payouts to players in the US via PayPal.  But how?  PayPal has not permitted its platform to be used for Internet gambling in the States for well over 15 years.

Speaking to the audience of TwoPlusTwo.com, a rep for the new GlobalPoker.com explained how the process works:

“You purchase our Goldcoin packages and we will give you the same amount in free $weeps, which you use at our cash game tables.”

The rep added that “We only just started about 2 months ago, but already over 1000 players cashed out over $120,000 in winnings.”

Of course the first question posed by the savvy folks at TwoPlusTwo dealt with how the PayPal option was possible.

The company response: “Global Poker is very much aware that PayPal do not allow any gambling transactions. Therefore, considering we've got PayPal as our payment method it's a guarantee that what we're offering to our members is a legit online gaming. This is exactly the same as how Chumba Casino does their payments for a couple of years now and haven't encountered any issues with PayPal. Let's not forget that both are under the same umbrella of VGW.”

Currently, Americas Cardroom is the leading – and one of the few, along with Ignition – online poker rooms catering to the US market.

GlobalPoker.com is not to be confused with the ranking site Global Poker.
