Like I said in the other thread, when the casinos first got this, they were REALLY pushing it hard on people (including me). I started the registration, but I never completed it. I would ONLY sign up if I could do deposits AND withdrawals with the same card., Then it would be worth it to me, but if not, I would not be interested.

I would be interested in any information about Okay Pay, too. Smile

I haven't, but would consider it in the near future if things get even harder to deposit/receive money.

The Greendot card may now be your best option, if they really are opened up for casinos to accept. I need to try this.

I'm thinking about OKPay too.. to be used @ 3Dice since they don't process any debit or credit cards. BUT, I notice the OKPay only issue a MASTERCARD..?? Most of these online casinos I like, accept VISA cards.

Y'all take care.. =^. .^=

Well that is really strange, because the casinos were REALLY pushing Okay Pay when they first acquired that option. When I was trying to withdraw once at Lucky Red or Club World, they kept telling me there was a problem with "pay to card" and that I should try Okay Pay. I kept telling them I resented that they were trying to almost force me to use it, and they kept pushing, and I assumed they knew I was a U.S. player. Seems it isn't the perfect option they were making it out to be.

Good to know. Thanks, BF.

They definitely were soliciting US customers a few months ago. Maybe they have felt the heat from US authorities or maybe it was all a sneaky marketing tactic designed to quickly capture a large number of account holders.

Whatever happened, our advice stands to avoid using an e-wallet for withdrawals if you are a US based player. Stick with casinos that will pay you directly using a wire or check. Using an e-wallet for deposits may be ok as you can deposit into the e-wallet then move it straight away into the casino (providing of course that the casino will let you withdraw with a wire or check). However e-wallet withdrawals are often held for a long time in the e-wallet and during that time the e-wallet could be shut down or disappear. It has happened in the past, so take note of this advice.
