A year ago, the poker forums actively discussed information that the PartyPoker room plans to start cooperation with the LUXON payment system. This happened against the background of great difficulties experienced by players from Europa with deposits and cash outs. Moreover, it was about bank cards, as well as Skrill and Neteller. And after Skrill and Neteller curtailed their activities in a number of countries, the LUXONPAY payment system appeared on the arena, which is designed to neutralize all the difficulties that have arisen. What it is and how it works – in our review.
LUXON payment system overview
To begin with, LUXON is a separate payment system that interacts with the PartyPoker room. This was clearly explained to us in the course of communication with a representative of the system in the online chat on the official website.
In general, this is a payment system, which for poker players playing for money differs from similar systems in several advantages:
- The ability to carry out three types of transactions: replenishment of the deposit, withdrawal of money and currency exchange;
- Action on the territory of 120 states, including Europa, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Ukraine.
In other words, almost every Partypoker player from these countries today can register an account in the system and start using money transfer services. You can create an account either at luxon.com or by downloading the app from the App Store or Google Play.
By the way, accounts can be verified or ignored this procedure. However, we must warn you that unverified accounts on LUXON will have a transaction limit of € 100 . In addition, owners of accounts that have not been verified will have to pay a certain percentage for each money transfer or currency exchange.
If the owner of the account has verified it, then his limit is increased to € 2,000 , he will not pay anything for the money transfer. There will be some troubles with currency exchanges, but they are not so serious. As soon as a person confirms his address, this functionality becomes available to him in full. Address confirmation is required for LUXON in order to set the upper limit on transactions – they are different for a particular region.
As far as currencies are concerned, on LUXON you can easily operate the most popular currencies. There are American dollars, European €, euros – 11 currencies in total. And do not let the user be intimidated by the information that all operations are made only in European currency.
You can transfer money from the European to LUXON using Yandex.Money, QIWI Wallet and Visa and MasterCard bank cards . Cash out can be issued in the same ways. By the way, the balance of the LUXON e-wallet is uniform. This means that the user can freely replenish the deposit in the poker room and make purchases.
As reported on the LUXON website, it is planned to start issuing Luxon Mastercard at the end of this year. This means that the opportunities for poker players will expand. The fact is that today LUXON only interacts with Partypoker, the rest of the big rooms are not in business yet. But with the advent of the card, players will be able to make at least deposits in other rooms, and there it will be close to the possibility of withdrawing money.
How to register an account on LUXON
As we have already indicated, you can create an account, and with it an electronic wallet LUXON, either on the website or in mobile applications available for download in the App Store and Google Play.
The step-by-step registration procedure does not take much time and is painfully familiar to every poker player for sure:
- Phone number and confirmation.
- Full Name.
- Address and postal code.
- National ID Number – TIN number.
- Email address.
Once all these fields are filled in, you become the owner of the LUXON wallet. Whether or not you want to verify your account is up to you. We talked about the advantages of verification above.
If you decide to get tested, then take into account our following recommendations.
How to verify an account on LUXON
Like every verification, this one also requires documentary confirmation. These can be a passport, driver’s license or any other document with a photo, indication of the full name and date of birth.
We will immediately advise you to go through verification on the LUXON website . Here you can use special forms that are provided in your personal account in png, jpeg and pdf formats. Believe me, this can also be done in a mobile application, but you will have to deal with scanning, which will often be of poor quality.
Once all the documents have been sent, you can start counting 24 hours – this is usually how long the check takes.
To confirm the address, the documents are also familiar – utility bills, bank statements or any other serious document. The main thing is that the username and address are indicated, and, of course, the official seal – where without it.
If you have any difficulty, question or any problem with registration and further verification, feel free to contact the online chat on the site. You can write in European. The support specialists are friendly, knowledgeable and, importantly, European-speaking. Good luck!
