Bank Accounts and Credit Card of Daniel Negreanu Sealed in USA


The World No #1 poker player Daniel Negreanu was surprised to find his Master Card Credit Card not working as well as Bank of America shutting down his bank account on Wednesday. With $32.3 million in live tournament winnings, the Toronto native sits atop the all-time money list of poker. Moreover, he also emerged as the most famous poker player of 2015 as Hendon Mob rankings. With adept skills and flamboyant image in the poker world he has established himself as an icon of the industry.

On Wednesday, Kidpoker tweeted:

This is not the first time when a poker player’s bank account has been frozen. Doug Polk tweeted that his bank account with substantial amount was sealed for 2 months in past.

Online poker players as well companies have been facing such banking issues in past due to misunderstanding of the legality aspect. In May 2014, Garden State iGaming companies saw over half of customers’ credit card payments rejected. Since then, New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement officials have made a point to hold meetings with financial institutions and explain that their product is legal in the state.
