    My 2c... I'm liking the Jackpot Factory group. ACH, good to go.. now paper checks for payout as well. I can't say I've been 100% on top of what's going on, just the casinos I play at. It seems to me these guys have done the very best they could under the circumstances. Less than a week from having the US rug yanked out from under them, they are there for us.

    Inexia has been top-notch.

    Their games are what I look for, the software is stable, the customer service has never failed me.

    AllSlots, AllJackpots:thumbsup:

    Inexia are the cause of pretty much all the problems I have had with them, their service was dire a year ago, although they have improved standards of late.

    Kind of an odd time to be asking which casino is best for U.S. players. It it irrelevent under the current circumstances. The better question to be asking is which casinos still allow U.S. customers, and of those, which ones have a way for U.S. players to fund their accounts. I'm no expert, and I haven't done exhaustive research, but I'm not aware of ONE SINGLE CASINO that still allows U.S. players, and has a reasonable way to fund and has a reasonable way to collect any winnings. As far as I see it, the U.S. player is essentially shut out completely from online gambling at the moment. There are ancillary reports that accounts can be funded with Netspend, but that won't last very much longer. Every other deposit method that I am aware of is shut off. For cashouts, it appears that the only option is a paper check, but there is some genuine concern as to whether U.S. banks will accept checks drawn on a casino account (regardless of what name actually appears on the check).

    Are there any U.S. players who have found a reasonable, reliable, trustworthy casino that meets all these criterion? If so, please do share.

    Thanks VWM. I'm glad I played with them after they got their act together. The longest it ever took for me was about 72 hours for a four digit withdrawal. All others were much quicker.

    I had read earlier on here somewhere where the group had let some marketers spam, etc. but that they apologized and stopped the practice. The only direct marketing I got from them was a nice xmas card with a bonus code that returned a tidy little sum. I liked that. :D Oh yeah, and sometimes I would log in and for no apparent reason I'd find $25 sitting there in bonus.

    I have a preexisting Click2Pay account, which makes deposits and withdrawals far more simple.

    Situation not yet dire

    If I didn't already have money in casinos, I would wait a few weeks to see whether the sky is falling or the casinos will find a way to cope in the present environment. The withdrawal of Neteller and ACH processors was the expected result of the UIGEA; it just happened sooner because of DOJ saber rattling. The encouraging thing is that casinos/sports books/poker sites have not bailed as a result of this saber rattling. If the movement of money were going to become impossible or nearly so, I think we would have already seen operators exiting the US market. I know, it's only been a week, so we'll see.

    Once things settle a bit I would suggest you consider Bodog. Nupay for deposits, courier check for withdrawals. They bent over backwards in recent days to pay their players quickly, absorbing Western Union fees while they were between check processors. They showed they had a plan in place to roll with the punches, which gives me confidence in them.

    Why irrelevant? What circumstances?

    Only because their dictatorial government is not allowing transfers it does not mean US people will stop gambling....

    On the other hand, the US is the biggest online gambling market, thats a fact.

    Plus, people who is on the US will like to know where to play at.

    I used to work for the Main Street Vegas Group and they are quite reliable, just my 2 cents.

    Didn't like your post by the way

    Not anymore. I just read (Time, I think) that Macau has surpassed Vegas as far as gambling revenues go.

    If you took offense to my post, please know that none was intended. I was simply pointing out that as a U.S. player, I am not aware of any options left to deposit and withdraw at any online casino. Given that the U.S. player is effectvely shut out from online gambling at the moment, I was just wondering the point of asking which casinos were best for U.S. players. As an example, you've mentioned Main Street Vegas a couple of times. I did a live chat with them, and they are accepting U.S. players, but the only deposit method available is credit card or Western Union. The majority, if not all, U.S. credit cards (like mine) will be rejected if attempting to deposit in an online casino, and Western Union is no longer handling any form of gambling transaction, so I couldn't play at any of the Main Street Vegas casinos even if I wanted to.

    You are correct that U.S. players will not stop gambling, but I believe we have been forced to stop online gambling for now. I suspect that B&M casinos will see an increased level of business from U.S. players who can no longer gamble online.

    By the way, you said that U.S. players would like to know where to play at. Very, very true!!!! I would welcome that information, as would everyone else in the forum. So....where can I play? Who will take me? Who will accept my money? If you know of a casino, please do share.

    Thanks.

    Here's one that will still take your money...

    OK, now please everyone - don't throw rocks at me all at once, ok? I'm simply responding to the question "Where can I still deposit and withdraw?" Virtual Casino will take credit card deposits THROUGH THEIR WEBSITE (and yes, they go through, even tho they WONT go through on the cashier page!) I know that there have been allot of horror stories with Virtual, but they have cleaned up their act as far as I can tell...I have made three withdrawls through Virtual (all for over $2,000.00) and I was paid within a week. The only bad thing is that they limit withdrawals to $2K per week. If you can live with that, it will scratch the itch until some of the more mainstream casinos find a way to deal with this - and believe me, they will find a way.

    I made withdrawls via Western Union and direct deposit to my bank account...if that won't work anymore, I guess a paper check is the way to go. I have cashed SEVERAL casino checks through various check-cashing places...I guess no one has told them of the new laws.....I had Vegas7 email me and tell me they are still able to do ACH withdrawals....ill informed?? Dunno.

    A Virtual casino accepted two deposits from my debit card yesterday and then today in my email I get this from Bank of America. Looks like no more debit card!:eek:

    Probably just a precaution. When I was still able to use a credit card for gambling, whenever I used it at a new place, my bank would call and verify that I made the charges, as it was billed out of the country.

    Thanks Amatrine, you were right as I called B of A and they simply wanted to verify I had used the card for those two transactions and also for taxact online. The hold was removed but I don't believe I feel comfortable using it again. Just nerves!:)

    sorry but I don't understand what your pre-existing Click2Pay deposit/withdrawl activity has to do with it unless they start taking on new customers. Will this happen? Is there really a silver lining out there somewhere? Thnx
