If you play live poker tournaments, one major issue is handling a lot of cash. In most cases when you register for a tournament, you will need the buy-in in cold hard cash, and if you wind up finishing in the money, you will have a similar problem of once again walking around with money.
Thanks to a new product called the BPL Prepaid Card, developed by Bravo Poker Live, this problem may be a thing of the past. The BPL Prepaid Card is a new service designed to handle your buy-ins and cashes to prevent the unnecessary headache of needing a wallet bulging with cash.
Using this convenient service is very easy. All you need to do is to head to BPLCard.com, log in, and click on the “Apply Now” link. The link will walk you through what information is needed.
Once you have successfully registered, you can immediately add funds with a credit or debit card or via an ACH transfer from your checking account. After the funds are loaded, your BPL Player Card will be sent to your doorstep, ready to be used.
In addition to being able to use this card to register online for tournaments supported by Bravo Poker Live, you can use it to book your hotel accommodations if you’re playing in a tournament out of town via their website. Additionally, the BPL Prepaid Card should work anywhere the Discover Card is accepted, including ATM machines.
While it is certainly a huge convenience for poker players to be able to register for live tournaments with their BPL Players Card, it can be even a bigger convenience after cashing in any tournament at a supported casino. Many players after a cash have felt they have had a target on their backs walking out of the casino with a big chunk of cash. Now, instead of carrying around cash, you can ask the casino to load it up onto your card, which you can use later as you see fit.
Additionally, having the money on your BPL Player Card is safe and secure. Funds are FDIC secured and issued by Sutton Bank.
