Members should also be aware that the total entry fees paid by members in any given credit game are not paid out as prizes, as Pro Players retains part of the entry fees paid as a service fee on all credit tournaments played. This fee allows for the continued operation and maintenance of the website and the development of additional features and content for the website in the future. The amount of the prize (or prizes) for each credit head-to-head game is 10 percent.

The minimum withdrawal amount is €5 EUR or the member's entire balance (if applicable.) All withdrawals are subject to a withdrawal fee of €0,50 EUR.

Withdrawal of funds will be based on your Bank Account.
