Good Afternoon Fellow Gamblers.

This Is a Relatively Simple Question That Has Been On My Mind For Awhile Now.

Just Wondering How Much Of Your $$$ You Feel Safe Leaving In An E-Wallet.

As Soon As a Withdrawal From a Casino Hits It Do U Withdraw It?

I Don't Wanna Know How Rich Everyone is :p I Would Just Like Your Opinions.

Thanks For Taking The Time Read.

Unless your having your entire amount wired from your e-wallet to your bank account, you can only extract $1000 AUD per 24 hours. So in that case there has to be a certain level of trust with who you use to begin with.

Most of my aff payments go through NT and I can't complain. Granted I'm a VIP at NT which gives me better benefits and dedicated support. I've been with them (NT) since they opened in 2000 - 2001 and haven't had any cash dramas (touch wood).


Cheers

I would of said unlimited but i stuck with $500- $2000 as i have just started using the net+ card from neteller after coming off the old globewallet card.
With the old card, you had to manually transfer money in your neteller account to load onto the card...
And with the new net+card you just use your card and money gets taken straight from your neteller account.
I dont know if it could happen but if someone was able to get my card details they could possibly empty my neteller account.
I know the limit was $1000 for ATM withdrawals and from memory $10,000 for purchases on the old card, but not sure with the new one.

Hiya. I use to use Neteller, then they stopped letting USA players use them. I even had the Neteller debit card, and no issues at all with them.

Since then, i have use moneybookers, but then they also stopped letting USA players have accounts. This then left click2pay, and e wallet xpress. I never left money in them any longer than required to actually allow them to verify the funds. I almost always only used them to deposit into the casino, and then got a check from the casino when withdrawing.

The Powers to be, will shut down e wallets, before they try to stop a Casino from accepting USA players. I never had more than $1000 in any e wallet for the last several years. As long as the Fee from a Casino to send me a check, is a lot less than the Fee from the e wallet, to put the money back into my bank acct., I would rater wait for the check vs paying for the wire transfer.

Players in the USA are in a different position to the rest of us. If the authorities crack down on an ewallet, funds are frozen overnight, and can take months, or years, to retrieve by agreement after any legal case.

For the rest of us, particularly where our governments are NOT trying to stop internet gambling, it is down to how well the ewallet has performed. The longer you are with one, the safer you may feel leaving higher sums with them.

Neteller VIPs can have limits as high as 125,000 If this was from a substantial win, I would want much of it out to a safer account, a bank covered by the Financial Compensation Scheme. I would happily leave up to around 15K to 20K in Neteller until I needed it for something, but I WOULD be taking chunks out to bring the balance down if I didn't think it likely I might need it for casinos.

Neteller seem to run promotions where credit card deposits are FREE, so with this in mind, I can keep lower amounts in Neteller still, and know that I can wait for one of these promos, and top it up for free if necessary.

Neteller do not seem to like "unusual" flows of money, which is what happened when casinos took deposits by card, but could ONLY pay back to Neteller. From Neteller's point of view, I was making an unusual level of profit from gambling, because they only saw a fraction of the transactions going the other way. This lead to verification checks, and could be one reason some players get "dicked around" by ewallets.

Although I pay to withdraw back to my bank, as a VIP this is refunded at the end of the month, so I do NOT pay the 5 charge in the end. A portion of currency exchange fees is also refunded at the end of the month.

If I started out afresh with a new ewallet, I would NOT be happy to leave large sums lying around till they had proved themselves.

I mainly use Neteller too.
I don't really worry too much about how much I have in there, but I generally keep it between $2,000 & $5,000.
So I voted for #3.
I don't have the Net+ card though - all my withdrawals go straight to my bank by wire.

I seriously considered hanging up my bank and using only Neteller back before 2006 because they just did their business and money was there and back and there and back and it was great. However, decided having my monthly income only one click away might be a little too easy. As for the ewallets since then, they've pretty much gained my trust, but if the Feds are going to be free to confiscate bank accounts wherever they please then the moon might be the safest place. It's a little out of their way. :rolleyes:
