I was going to purchase a reloadable Netspend card but I was pm'ed by another Casinomeister member that their card has not been working at Microgaming casinos. Is anyone else having trouble? I will be playing at RTG casino but asking anyway Thanks :confused:

Hey Lisa...My card has not worked at Gaming Club for a few weeks now. The other day I had problems purchasing at Casino Grand Bay but now it is working fine there.

FYI - I believe the Netspend VISA is more widely accepted for gaming than the Netspend MC.

Why is that? why is Visa accepted and Mastercard is getting rejected - they are both pre paid cards??

I'd double check the balance online. Or maybe you did already?

Ive had a neg. balance once or twice for 1 or 2 dollars - I figured it was some sort of card fee they charge. I think there is a big problem with yours - I would ask for a statement to see where they went wrong.

I've seen a negative balance on prepaid cards caused 3 ways: (a) card issuer charges card "fees", (b) a deposit is reversed and (c) a merchant was rejected in a charge attempt and then "forced" the charge - a standard merchant practice.

What I've found out over the past year is that it's MC that are rejecting any charges that are coded as casino charges and not the card issuer themselves ie: Banks, credit unions, pre-paid entities etc., but rather MC themself...granted that MC will work at some onlines, but not all and that is simply because of the way the charge is coded by the processor...

I use Netspend Prepaid Visa Debit card. I deposited $10 into 3Dice and it was charged twice. 3Dice was nice enough to give me a $15.00 comp and they said they think it was a problem with Netspend. They suggested I wait 7 days and see if it comes back into my account. We will see.

I had it happen because of the point bryand brought up about failed deposits. It charges your card even though it doesn't go through. You can call them and if you complain enough they will fix it for you. Just don't let them tell you it takes 10 days, it doesn't if you get a supervisor on the phone, then it is instant.

i also talked to many supervisors and they told me it was not them double charging but the casinos, then i got lucky and talked to some one that knew her stuff, she said that the merchants have 10 days to collect or the money will go back into the cardholders acct., if under 100.00 purchace.some merchants may not see the funds pending and will run it thru again, making it a double charge, but once the first funds are collected by the merchant, the other charge will drop off, if the merchant sends a fax stating they will not collect on the second attempt, as best i understood her to say.i still dont understand it and prolly never will, i have never had problems with netspend until now and it seems both parties are blaming each other and i with a few others are caught in the middle, she did say this wasnt a rare case and has happened before and it will all wash out even.................. we will see:eek:

Same happened to me.
One day I found my netspend Visa -98.43.
I called...no explanations and I was charged for the call........
Every now and than I did check on my balance.still the same.
I always suspect it was a $90 or so charge from Bodog that was charged twice
They(netspend) are still wayting for me to make a deposit.
It will never happen.:cool:
Since than, I use wired plastic.....not much better though.

All of those pre-paids are a CON and will always take the casino's side (or word) over the customers and the customer has absolutely no recourse whatsoever as far as chargeback or anything else for that matter that you can do as a customer to rectify the situation because it's pre-paid and you have already given up your money unlike a real MC or Visa where you have several avenues of rectification...

Laurie, that's exactly what happened with my card. They blame the casino, the casino blames them. I had to become "vocal" over the issue in order to get them to remove it immediately. If the charges aren't attempted against the card after 10 days, the "ghost" charges drop off. Still, it is BS!!

Should I speak to netspend about my double charge? Do I tell them I made the deposit at a casino??? Advice please. Thanks:)
i did and they didnt care if it was a casino or the man in the moon i was spending money on.i would call bally , i really would and contact the casino that they say has double billed you and make them aware and do what they must do in order to get your account straight, its not our fault imo, which sometimes dont mean squat!!!.........laurie

Thanks Laurie. I will call them. It was only $10 and it didn't give me a negative balance. The casino was 3Dice and they immediately gave me a $15.00 bonus chip.:thumbsup:

I will still call because I could have had a lot of money charged twice, not just $10.

Hope it all works out for you!

Ive hadda buncha NetSpend cards. Ive got two now. Once I reloaded $500 at a ck cash place. They said it didn't take and they were putting it thru again and "please press YES" on the electronic POS thingy on my side a the bullet proof glass. When I got home I had $1,000 balance. Woo hoo! I went back in there a week or so later n the lady said I owe $500. I left. Went to a different ck cash place, bought a new $9.95 NetSpend card (yes Visa only - only noobs dumb nuf to git a MC for online gaming don ask me why) circular-filed the old NetSpend but did not cancel it or call it stolen - just dumped the card - problem's solved! I don't owe NetSpend nuttin. Never came up on subsequent cards even tho the lady at ck cash place #1 said I have probs. I've posted ad-nauseum on the wonders of NetSpend ever since first joining CM. Never hadda problem, really. Now, if casinos have double billed me -maybe they have and I never realized but it was never enough that I noticed if they had.

PS NetSpend was - in the not too distant past - listed specifically as a deposit option in many online casino cashiers. In fact, they still are at 3Dice Casino f'sho at this very moment as we type! So the fact that we use it for casinos don befront them NONE!
