The World Series of Poker Super Circuit Online Series is back at Natural8 and for some of you there will need to be some travel involved in order for you to be able to participate. We answer some of your questions on how you can participate if you reside in a country where Natural8 does not operate in.
Can I travel from my ineligible country to another country to play in the WSOP at Natural8?
Of course. As long as you are in a non-restricted country while actually participating, then it's perfectly fine. For example, if you are currently residing in the USA but plan to travel to Canada to participate, you'll be able to login to Natural8 and play the WSOP with no issues.
I’m a US citizen and I’m considering going to Canada/Mexico to play in the WSOP. As a US citizen, can I play in Canada/Mexico as a visitor without a permanent address?
Yes! This is perfectly acceptable. You do not need to be a permanent resident of the country you are playing from. You just need to be present in the location at the time of playing.
Do I need to submit my proof of residence or verify my identity to be able to play?
Players are always advised to verify their accounts in advance to avoid any complications with deposits and withdrawals. In addition to that, we may ask you to provide proof of presence in the accepted countries and a passport to verify that you are indeed playing the WSOP from a non-restricted location. We know that many players will have unique situations, and we will work with you to find the best way to prove your presence in the accepted country.
What are some examples of proof of presence?
Essentially, it’s evidence that you can provide which shows that you are in the stated region. Here is an example. A passport stamp with date from the custom (Passport should show front page and the stamp page simultaneously). We may request for further documents to check your location and your temporary residency.
Is my money safe at Natural8 if I'm a US citizen?
Of course! We may require some documents for verification purposes, but, we can assure you that your funds will not be seized if you are participating legally.
What happens in the event I win a ring and travel home after the series concludes?
If you participated in the Events in the legitimate country and went back to your home country after playing, we will arrange the delivery of the WSOP Ring to the address that you provide.
What are the tax implications if I win money outside my country?
The onus for tax payment is on the individual in that case. Please check up on your national rules on taxable incomes.
I am traveling from the USA. What payment methods will be available?
Bitcoin and USDT will be available for all players via the Cashier. You can also try the local deposit options available in the relevant country that you will be playing from.
If I win a significant event during the period then return to a blocked jurisdiction, how will I withdraw my funds? Will Natural8 ensure I am eligible to receive cash and prizes won while based in an eligible region?
Yes. Natural8 will work directly with you to find the best options for cashing out large winnings.
I played on Natural8 during the WSOP in 2020 - can I re-access this account and is there anything I need to do?
As we only allow one account per player, you must play on the account opened last year. You will be required to verify your account once more. Please contact our 24/7 Live Support at www.natural8.com for assistance.
I need to raise my deposit limits ahead of playing in WSOP Super Circuit Online Series events; what should I do?
Please KYC verify your account via the Natural8cashier. The act of KYC verification will increase a user’s deposit limits so make sure to verify your account as soon as possible.
If you need even higher limits specifically for the WSOP, just contact our 24/7 Live Support at www.natural8.com for assistance. For very large increases, further due diligence may be required before limits are increased.
