The first step is to deposit some funds into your PokerAce account. The methods available for depositing into your account depend on your location and the currency you choose. Visit our Deposit page for additional information. You can also contact email@example.com for assistance on how to deposit.

I cannot establish a connection to your server. What can I do?
This problem is usually caused by one of the below:
You have lost your internet connection.
Your connection is slow or ‘lagging’.
You have a Firewall preventing you from playing.
It may also be resolved by turning off all of your computer and network equipment, then restart everything and try to access PokerAce again.
If you have a firewall or similar software installed, check it is configured correctly to allow PokerAce to access the Internet.
If the above fails, please provide us with the exact error message you are receiving and let us know what firewall or security software is installed on your computer.
What happens if I disconnect during a hand?
In a cash game, if there is a bet, your hand will be folded. If there is no bet, you will automatically Check, and you will be sitting out until you reconnect.
In a tournament, your hand will be folded if there is a bet. If there is no bet you will automatically Check. Your blinds will still be taken in the tournament and will sit out until you reconnect.
Should PokerAce be unable to get the tournament running again, our refund policy will dictate your Tournament winnings, depending on the type of tournament and the stage of play when the tournament was interrupted.
Is PokerAce available on Mac?
Yes the application works on Mac. Please see the minimum requirements for browser support.
Fun Money Games

Yes, players are allowed to play up to 4 cash tables at once, but may play unlimited Tournaments at the same time!

How can I get tournament tickets?
PokerAce has introduced the use of Tournament Tickets (sometimes known as Tokens).
Some tournaments will have Tournament Tickets as prizes in place of some of the cash in the Prize Pool. Typically these will be satellites to larger tournaments such as Poker series Main Events or Live Events.
Players who own Tournament Tickets may use them to enter tournaments of the Tournament Ticket’s value.
Where can I see my tournament tickets?
Tournament Tokens/Tickets and their expiry dates can be viewed in the Cashier under MyTickets.
I see a lot of players are sitting out in tournaments and its ruining my game. Is this fair?
It is actually to your advantage that a player is Sitting Out during a tournament because their blinds are still posted every time they are due.
Players sometimes register to a tournament and forget when the tournament starts, or even play for a while and have to leave. We do not think it is right to penalize them because they could log in and want to play at any time.
How can I withdraw my Winnings?
You must meet the requirements of the PokerAce Fair Play Policy

First Deposit Bonus
How can I qualify for a First Deposit Bonus?
You are eligible for the 200% deposit bonus when you make your first-ever real money deposit at PokerAce. This first deposit must be a minimum of USD10 or RMB65.
Please remember that your bonus expires in 60 days from the time you deposit, and that you must earn the required PPP’s before the 60 days are over, in order to earn your bonus. To check when your bonus expires, and how many PPP’s you have earned, click the cashier button in the PokerAce Lobby.
How can I claim my First Deposit Bonus?
In order to receive your deposit bonus you must earn a designated number of PPP’s. The amount PPP’s you must earn and the maximum bonus you may claim, will vary depending on the amount of your initial deposit.
$1 of your bonus will be released into your account for every 30 PPP’s earned, but will be available only in 5% increments.
Example: If you deposit RMB¥3000 into your account (at time of printing, this is equal to USD$475) you are awarded a $950 First Deposit Bonus (USD is the default currency on PokerAce). To redeem the entire bonus, you will need to earn 30 X 950 PPP’s (28,500 PPP’s). When you earn 1425 PPP’s (5%), RMB¥150 will be credited to your account until the entire bonus is redeemed or the offer expires (60 days). A player can track their Bonus progress by clicking on the “Cashier” button in the Lobby. Once in the Cashier window, there is a button labelled “Bonus Account”. The Player will be able to track their Bonus here.
You will begin accumulating PPP’s with the first hand played with “Real Money” after the deposit is made to your account.
After the required number PPP’s are earned for the first 5% of your bonus, the bonus will appear in your “Available Balance” section in the PokerAce Cashier. PokerAce will send you an email confirming that the bonus funds have been moved to your cash account. The transaction will also be traceable under ‘History’ in the Cashier.
Where can I track my First Deposit Bonus?
Once you make a deposit, you can view your bonus by clicking on the Cashier button in the Lobby. Once in the cashier, you can track you PPP’s and check your progress by clicking on the “My Promotions” tab. The number of PPP’s earned, as well as the number of PPP’s still required, can also be found there.
What can I do if I don’t claim my bonus within the 60 day time period?
PokerAce feels that 60 days is a long enough period to earn the required PPP’s to clear your bonus, remembering that it is earned in 5% increments. Therefore, bonus extensions are not permitted beyond the 60 day term.
