Bovada no longer accepts poker players.
Carbon Poker is my #1 recommendation for US poker.
www.Bovada.lv offers two withdrawal methods:
Your available withdrawal option depends on the way you deposited money to Bovada; if you made a credit card or a Western Union deposit, you can withdraw the money as a check (Bovada has the fastest check payouts out of all US poker sites); if you made a Rapid Transfer deposit, you can withdraw the money by using Rapid Transfer.
Regardless of the way you deposit money to Bovada, your deposit is processed fast when compared to other US online poker sites.
Your available Bovada withdrawal options depend on which of the Bovada deposit options you used. In that sense you have no options; you must use the cashout method that matches with the deposit method.
If you either made a credit / debit / gift card deposit or a money transfer deposit (Western Union), you must request a check withdrawal. To be eligible for a withdrawal after having made a credit card deposit, you must complete the credit card verification form on Bovada's website.
If you used Rapid Transfer to deposit, you will have to cashout using Rapid Transfer as well. You won't be able to deposit via Rapid Transfer and then withdraw a check.

How long do Bovada payouts take?
Bovada has the fastest payouts out of all US poker sites.
Note: Bovada processes payouts only after your pending deposit has cleared, which can take a maximum of five days. In case you make a deposit and then, without using the money, decide to withdraw it, Bovada may take a fee.
