PartyPoker, the online poker brand of bwin.party, has announced that players withdrawing funds via most banking options will no longer face processing fees.
Customers withdrawing funds via popular banking methods such as Mastercard, Visa and PayPal were previously faced with processing fees.
However, writing on the PartyPoker blog, director of games Golan Shaked said that after listening to feedback from players, the operator will halt these fees.
“When we started our ‘Poker for the People’ campaign, withdrawal fees and our loyalty store were the two hottest topics raised at our live player forums,” Shaked said.
“Our poker team has been working hard and we’re really pleased to have addressed these two issues, but there’s still work to be done.
“We want to be the online poker site that champions what players want and we’re up for the challenge of making our players’ experience the best it can be.
“We are now looking at ways to eliminate withdrawal fees from the small number of payment processors who currently charge a premium for their services.”
Meanwhile, PartyPoker has also confirmed that paysafecard is to replace rival Ukash as the online payment provider for the brand.
As reported by iGaming Business, last month it was confirmed that the Ukash brand was to be replaced by paysafecard on a wider scale following its takeover by Skrill.
