Hi. I have tried to do some research about this but english is not my native language so I've not been able to find anything about it. Is it illegal/punishible by poker or casino rooms, to make large deposits when CAN money here is worth more than US money and then cashout when the US money is worth more than the CAN$ ?? If this is 100% legal do you have a website that gives accurate exchange rates? Thank you.
And also... CAN$ has kept going over and under US$ for the last 2-3 years every couple weeks or months. So if I can just make a little money there, even if it wouldnt be a lot, would still be free money.

very risky unless u are genius at predicting fluctuations and they charge around 2% conversion fee which will eat your potential profit. and wud be suspicious if u keep on only depositing and withdrawing, most sites will block your account for that not worth it imo

There's no point in risking this on a poker platform , you can easily make this on a regular exchange rate company , like u said , buy some CAN when it's worth more than the US dollar , and when the US dollar goes back up , sell the CAN , u can easily do this at your local exchange rate .

just to add, withdrawal at most poker sites are not instant and i think they'll use the current rate at time at which the transaction gets approved (and they'll choose it acc to their convenience) rather than the time when u request it

You will find there are terms and conditions and anything that looks like an attempt to achieve an advantage due to exchange rates will be blocked. Some sites retain the right to revert any exchanges back to the exchange rate at the time of your last deposit so that the exchange is neutral to you and them. Nice try though, but probably not the best way of trying to make money as most pokersites will have worked that one out and be using exchange rates to get money from you, not giving it to you.

as others have said - there's plenty of forex trading sites already.. no reason to do on a poker site - you'll probably just get slugged with higher exchange fees and also it will look a bit suspicious if you don't actually play with the money.

i really do not understand what are you thinking about- if you want to play currencies go for forex, if you intend to make profit from deposit/withdrawal stuff with poker room think for a sec- you make a deposit with can, wait for profitable situation to withdraw in usd- but poker room doesn't care a sh.. about currency rates- they always exchange them at your request and rate is poorer than you would get at forex. another thing is think how much you would need to deposit to make significant profit? there is no leverage here...and that take to another point- why the hell can't you do same operation at your local bank...why poker room?
