Poker: How do transfer limits work?

Poker transfer limits cover the total of all transfers into Poker wallet over a rolling period.

Transferring funds back to your main Betfair account will not reset the limit.

Your Poker transfer Limits come into effect from the moment they are first set. They run for the time you choose (week, month or year) and then they are automatically re-set and begin again.

For example, if you set a Poker transfer limit of £100 (€100) per week around Monday mid-day, your total transfer amount will be tracked from that point and you will be prevented from transferring more than £100 (€100) on Poker. Then the transfer limit will be re-set for the following week.

A second example: if you set a transfer limit of £500 (€500) per month on the 31st August, your total transfer amount will be tracked from that point and you will be prevented from transferring more than £500 (€500) on Poker until the 30th September, the last day of the following month. Then the transfer limit will be re-set for the following month.

If you try to remove or increase your limit, it will only take effect if you confirm this change after 7 days (see more info here on how to confirm your limit changes). Any decrease in the limit will be applied immediately.

Poker transfer limits set out here only cover transfers to the Poker wallet. If you have set main loss limits for our sports product (under My Account – Player Protection on the Home or Sports pages) then these will not be applied to your Poker betting.

Please be aware that if you apply any player protection tool to your Betfair account it will not automatically apply to your Paddy Power account. If you wish to set a player protection tool you can do so via your Paddy Power account online or alternatively, Customer Services can set this for you
