Things are getting more and more difficult for us U.S. players in the online gambling world. I just went to Bodog and saw that credit cards are having a fee tacked onto it, and if you want to make a smaller deposit they are wanting you to funnel you money through a calling card (I think) type deal. This whole thing smacks of being shady and frankly makes me nervous to do these transactions.
My question to you guys is, what is a good processor left for us? Who is still able to take a MasterCard? I don't actually have a VISA and it seems like most if not all my casinos are giving me a hard time with accepting MasterCard (part of my key frustration with the world of sports-books). Also, what kind of processors are working for you that don't require a big initial deposit? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?
I've heard that some are using MyPaylinQ and Money Line Wallet.
Well since the whole ban thing it would seem any means of transferring money into your casino account would be shady. Can't really decipher what method of is more legit then the next. At the moment i agree with the suggestions Savannah provided. I know some casinos use Vouchers as a way to deposit. Have not personally tried it though.
Would be curious to know if anyone has.
Looks like the US has lost MyPaylinQ. I can't even keep up anymore. What's left?
Yes PaylinQ is now gone for US players. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find a processor. It def will get worse before it all gets better.
I can accept that some people are always going to be opposed to gambling, but seizing the funds of players isn't exactly a good way to get people to come around to your point of view. IF (and its a big if) the whole idea is to "save the poor gamblers from losing all their money" then I can't think of a more effective way to NOT do that than confiscating all their money. Take the processor out of business if they must, but at least let them return the money to players.
If I was in the U.S. now I would be extremely wary of using any third party payment processing service. If you can't deposit directly to the casino using a credit card, prepaid card or similar and then withdraw via cheque or wire transfer then you're taking an extra risk with your money. The casinos that will be able to continue to accept U.S. players will be the ones that are able to maintain their own private processing solutions.
