Sometimes the ATM won't accept your check.

I take my check to the bank and Deposit it, never cash it. Deposit it.

I just got a check for $1100 today, same old thing I just deposited it.

I haven't had a check bounce from them since 2011. (have received about 10 checks since then)

Still nervous, but what other choice do I have.

Uh oh. If I'm gonna defend em I gotta keep it fair. My buddy just had a check bounce. I'm not able to deposit Canadian checks into my ATM, but have had no problem taking it to the teller

2k check from Canada. No word back yet. Disturbing bc although I know that Bovada is crooked & rigged up I have never personally known anyone to have payout issues

I just got the same singapore check for 1200.  Going to deposit in ATM tomorrow - is that the best option so i dont have to deal with any people questioning me at the counter?

Also where do you endorse these checks? Just sign at the bank where you normally would or what?  There is no endorse here on the check.

Sucks i just wanted to play poker so deposited on bovada.  I have been using 5dimes for cbb betting for a few years now and have cashed out numerous times with no issues and get my checks 5 days after requesting a payout. Readin all these sketch stories about bovada checks now i just hope mine clears via atm

Here's some insight I hope may help. When I was using Bovada, I received checks from Singapore and it went through no problem via e-deposits with my bank. Most recently, I received a check from Canada and I went to a small bank branch inside a supermarket to deposit it. The teller took my check and said he has to send it to corporate for the international check.  While my first Canadian check was being sent away for nearly 6-8 weeks. I received my second Canadian check and this time went to an actual stand-alone branch that wasn't apart of a supermarket.  They accepted my check and deposited it without any questions.  As 6-8 weeks go by, the first check that was sent to corporate arrives back to me and it says "signature on check does not match".  So I took that check back to the actual branch and I said "corporate sent me back this check and told me to deposit it at your actual branch". They said "no problem" and on I went with my business.

Endorse normally as you would on any check. Try doing an e-deposit with the singapore checks. My bank accepted it.  There's also a Bank of America writing or symbol at the bottom left of the check, right? If so you're good. If you cannot do an E-deposit, make a copy of the check first and do the deposit over the ATM.

I have a question for the Bovada users: dont they have p2p payout options? Please do drop a line as I am thinking about opening an account with them.
