General Poker Information - Deposit and Withdrawal Options:
Credit cards: Many gambling sites will accept credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Solo, Maestro, Delta, etc.) for deposits but most credit card companies deny the charges for deposits into gambling establishments online. They do this to help fight credit card fraud. Some USA banks are declining CC transactions at Online Casinos. This has created many alternative methods to fund accounts, and in my opinion better options.
Virtual Wallets: Many of you are probably familiar with Paypal. Paypal is an example of a virtual wallet, but you can't use it at gambling related sites. You fund your account by any of a number of means including a credit card or a transfer from a bank account. Then you use your virtual wallet account to fund your gaming account, and most of them will also accept payments from your gaming accounts. You can then; depending on which wallet you choose, transfer the money to a bank account or use an ATM to retrieve it. The most popular of these is NETeller ( Paypal for gambling ), but some of the others are FirePay, MoneyBookers and Click2Pay.
E-Checks: E-checks are simply a deposit taken directly from your checking account. They are sometimes called other names like EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) or wire transfers. You must enter an account number from a checking or savings account to initiate these. I strongly suggest opening a separate account for these transactions to give you the maximum protection. Many gambling sites will do these directly, but some of the third party processors you can use are Citadel Commerce and IGM-Pay.
Other: A few of the other options are Western Union, FPS epassport and a Global Connect Card.
One of the most popular and safest
deposit and cash out options available at all online casinos is
NETeller. In addition, their basic service is completely free to
you. Here is a step-by-step guide to establishing a NETeller account
as well as a list of fees if you choose to use any of the advanced
Many casino players set up a separate checking account for this process, but I link to my main account and have never had the first problem. There is an option to instantly deposit funds in your NETeller account so you don't have to wait for the wire transfer, but there is an 8.9% fee. There is also a fee of 1.9% if you transfer fees to another member, but not when you are depositing to or cashing out of a online casino.
NETeller also offers a free debit card that allows you quick access to any funds you have in your account at most ATMs. There is a toll free customer support number available 24 hours a day and I have found customer support to be very fast and helpful.
FirePay is an online payment processor that operates as a virtual wallet. The only way to fund a FirePay account is with a US bank account. They also charge a fee between $3.99 and $5.99 for each deposit from your bank account to FirePay. The transfer of funds into and out of a gaming account is free. As a processor that offers the same services as NETeller, but with fees, I cant highly recommend them, though their service is secure and reliable.
Citadel Commerce, available to North American, Europe and Asian residents, is an e-check processing account. Setting up an account and funding it from your checking account is free, but transferring money back to your checking account has a fee of $5 and depositing using a credit card has a 4% fee. One of the nice features available from Citadel Commerce is a debit card that you can use to access your funds from an ATM or use as a debit/credit card at many merchants.
IGM-Pay is an e-check processor. This is the only service they offer with no frills attached. You can transfer money to and from your bank account. You must have a US based bank account to use IGM-Pay. There are no fees of any kind associated with this service, as they charge the merchant a small fee.
The FPS epassport is a pre-paid virtual visa credit card that is re-loadable. There is a 5% fee with a minimum of $5 every time you load it. You may load it with a Visa or MasterCard only.
MoneyBookers operates exactly like a Paypal account. You can send or receive money using email accounts as identifiers. You can fund your account from a bank account for free or use a credit card for a fee of 2.5%. Every time you send money there is a 1% fee, but there is no fee to receive money. MoneyBookers is available to customers on an international basis.
Global Connect Card
A Global Connect Card is a pre-paid phone card that some gambling sites will accept as a deposit. They may be purchased using a credit card. The biggest downfall with a pre-paid phone card is that you must find a different means to get your money out of the site.
Click2Pay is a global payment solutions system. Signing up for an account is free, as well as transferring money from a bank account to your Click2Pay account and back to your bank account. If you fund your account with a credit card there is a 3% fee. Other withdrawal options include payment by check ($2 fee) or by using a Click2Pay debit card. Along with NETeller, Click2Pay offers the most services for the least amount of fees.
PrePaidATM ( PPATM ) Card is an instant, convenient, easy-to-use, secure and private casino deposit method. PrePaidATM also allows you to get access to your money through an ATM card, 24/7 from anywhere in the world. You can fund your PrePaidATM by Visa, MasterCard, Paypal, Bank Wire or ACH.
This is all you have to now about depositing and cash out your money to and from the casino, poker or sportsbook and skill games.
