Why am I being asked to submit location information to play?

In October 2014, we made required updates to our location detection services to remain in compliance with the rules and regulations set forth by external governing bodies.

Players who attempt to participate in a cash tournament while residing in, visiting, or passing through one of the restricted states, or if their Internet Protocol (IP) Address is routed through one of the restricted states, would be required to complete a location verification form on the site to verify their location.

Once the form is submitted, the information will be reviewed and confirmed by the Fraud and Risk Department (usually within 1-3 business days). Players would receive a notification, upon the completion of the internal review, letting them know if they are able, or not able, to participate in cash tournaments. If approved, you would be able to continue participating in cash tournaments. If denied, then you would only be able to participate in the free tournaments that are offered.
