If you’re looking to play online poker for real money, having a safe, secure and quick way to move funds in and out of your account is of vital importance. Webmoney poker sites, which include just about all of the major brands, have become incredibly popular for that very reason. But unlike most electronic wallets, Webmoney so much more than a convenient way to pay and play on.
First of all, to make a Webmoney poker payment, you’ll need to sign up an account and download the appropriate version of the software. I know what you’re thinking – download software? Why do I have to download software? But that’s where all the benefits of added features come into play.
Webmoney Poker Software Applications
The standard Webmoney software, Keeper WinPro, is available for Windows desktop and laptop computers. There is also a light version called Keeper Standard (Mini). It doesn’t come with all of the additional bells and whistles I keep mentioning (we’ll talk more about those soon enough), but it’s compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems. And if you only plan on using the software for Webmoney poker deposits and withdrawals, the light version of the software is all you’ll need.
For mobile users, Webmoney offers its Keeper Mobile App, available for all major mobile operating systems (Andriod, Apple iOS, Windows Phone, Blackberry, etc.). It allows users to access their Webmoney purse, load funds, send money, make purchases and manage all other features directly from their mobile device or tablet.
There is also an E-num mobile app for users who don’t want to bother with usernames and passwords, allowing them to be verified simply by their device’s registered email address. Last but not least, before making a Webmoney poker deposit, users are asked to download a special Webmoney root certificate that ensures secure connections between users and the websites they intend transfer money to/from.

Additional Features for Webmoney Poker Players
If you conduct any kind of business online, Webmoney is a perfect solution for all of your financial needs. You can do everything from requesting a loan, to accessing a multitude of internet trading platforms, to paying your monthly bills or setting up a charitable fund and accepting donations. You can even make P2P transfers, or loan money to another user, with a binding agreement in place.
For all intents and purposes, Webmoney is like having 24/7 access to an actual bank at the touch of a finger.
It should be noted, however, that the company is not officially associated with any international financial system. Webmoney has been criticized in the past for its lack of authoritative integration, but after serving many regions of the world for over 15 years (established in 1998), it’s hard to call the company (WebMoney Transfer) untrustworthy.
How to Set Up a Webmoney ‘Purse’
Setting up a Webmoney account, or ‘Purse’ as it’s called, is quick and painless. It’s also free. After downloading software to your computer or mobile device, you can create an account by choosing a username and password. From there, you can load your purse via bank transfer, or any major credit/debit card.
When that’s done, you can visit any Webmoney poker site and instantly deposit funds into your gaming account.
How to Make a Webmoney Poker Deposit/Withdrawal
To transfer funds from your Webmoney purse into an online poker account, simply log into your favorite gaming website where Webmoney payments are accepted. Visit the Cashier and choose Deposit. From the payment methods available, select Webmoney. Enter the amount you wish to transfer into your poker account and press Submit.
From here, a new browser will open and you will be directed to the Webmoney website. Enter your username and password, then follow the instructions to complete the Webmoney poker deposit. The funds should be available for use within a few minutes, if not instantly.
Withdrawals are processed in the same way. Login to the poker site, visit the Cashier, select Withdrawal and choose Webmoney from the available cashout options. Enter the amount you would like to withdrawal and follow the brief instructions provided. It may take anywhere from a few hours to a few days for the funds to appear in your Webmoney account, depending on the length of time it takes the poker operator to processor the request.
Webmoney Visa and Mastercard
Transferring money from your WebMoney purse into a bank account can take a few days, so you may want to look into applying for a Webmoney branded Visa/Mastercard. You use the card to make WebMoney poker deposits like you would any other plastic card, but more importantly, you can withdrawal funds from your Webmoney purse at hundreds of thousands of ATMs worldwide. You can also use it for traditional POS purchases at all land-based merchants that accept Visa/Mastercard.
