Help a Newbie Out???

8 replies • Last post

So...I'm dying to play online. I've been researching and researching, I'm a little nervous about this- I like to play at Harrah's since they are right down the road from me but I want to try something else. I've played some sites using the no deposit welcome bonuses, and well I finally decide- 3dice is going to be my guinea pig. So I set up an account, my cards won't go through. I set up a skrill account, deposit money. Skrill accepts my money, go back to 3dice to deposit only to find out... skrill is not for US players. Use bitcoin. What?!?! I need some help, are there any other US players out there that wouldn't mind giving me a crash course on deposit methods and maybe a recommended site. For me, this is fun but it's really fun when you profit. FYI I am a low baller, for me putting $40 in a slot is pushing it and if get up to $70-80 I cash out and run, this is why I chose 3dice because of low deposit and low withdraw limits. Any help or tips would be great. Thanks in advance!

Yeah, welcome to the weird world of online casinos, especially for Americans. Sometimes your credit card will work but sometimes it won't. Most e-wallets like Skrill, Neteller, or EcoPayz will not let you make any transactions that are related to gambling.

So the past few years a lot of casinos have started to encourage people to use Bitcoin as it is pretty much un-stoppable due to its peer-to-peer nature. But Bitcoin is a whole other can of worms. If you aren't familiar with it then its not for the faint of heart. The easiest way to start is to set up an account with Coinbase or some other Bitcoin exchange / wallet to buy the Bitcoin in the first place. But again they don't want you transacting with gambling sites. So then you install a wallet on your PC or phone so that you control your own Bitcoin and send the BTC from Coinbase to your private wallet. Then you deposit / withdraw from the casino using your private wallet.

Yep it can be convoluted and confusing. I reckon if you can play online at Harrah's that you are better off staying with them, or trying some of the other licensed NJ options.

I use Paysafecard very often, and at pretty much every casino I play regularly at. You dont have to put your credit card numbers out there, or your banking info. Not sure about the convenience in the States, as I think gambling online if you live in the states is decidedly inconvenient everywhere these days is it not lol Ecopayz has worked their way around Visa now CL-Ed, they emailed me the other day, but an eco voucher online using a Visa card, and deposit the voucher into your eco payz account, bingo, a way around visas attempt once again.

As you are living in US, probably BitCoin is the best payment method.
But, you will need some time to get used to it.

Until then, you would better play with free bonuses given to new registrations.

Good luck.

Not all Americans can easily gamble online. It depends on the state. For you, I’d suggest checking all available payment options apart from Skrill or simple bank cards. Some casinos accept wire transfers, other may support e-wallets. As for Bitcoin, it’s a reliable system but it needs a lot of research if you are newcomer. Firstly, read Bitcointalk forum or check definitions on Wiki, idk. Then open a wallet. Finally, go to exchange (already mentioned Coinbase is cool, also you can use LocalBitcoins), buy some BTC there, and send money to your wallet. That’s all, you have Bitcoins and can use them to gamble online. A lot of casinos accept crypto deposits and there also are websites which allow you to play without deposits, from wallet. Good luck!

Sometimes you have to contact your card issuer to see if they allow international transactions or have them remove any blocks for international transactions. Often credit or debit card companies will tag casino transactions as potential fraud and even will freeze your card until they can confirm the transaction with you. So its best to contact your financial institution before you place any deposits. Have fun & best of luck!

If you do that, just be sure that if they ask what kind of international transactions that you don't tell them you want to deposit at a casino.

I might be mistaken but I think Upay wallet and upay card are available to US players it works exactly the same way the other e-wallets do and they welcome US citizens , if you do go the bitcoin route then check out localbitcoins and paxful as you can purchase bitcoin with many different payment methods like gift cards etc
