    Hypothetically speaking... :rolleyes:

    Suppose a casino allowed it's members to transfer funds between their accounts;
    A USA gambler wants to play, but can't get money in to or out of the casino, so he sends some $ by PayPal (for example) to a buddy in the UK or wherever, and the buddy deposits to the casino and transfers the money to the USA player's account.
    Withdrawals are done by reversing the process.

    Does anyone think the individual "buddy" would be breaking the law and liable to get into trouble?

    (Mods: Please delete this thread if you think it's too sensitive for forum discussions!)

    Wouldn't that be considered money laundering?

    That's what I was thinking.

    Maybe another way to do it would be for say somebody in the UK to sell UK cards or pre payment vouchers (eg: paysafecard or ukash) over the internet.

    Would they work in a US account?

    The only places I know of that do this gifting thing at this time are 3Dice & Intertops & Party Gaming.
    I wish they all would do this.

    we started a movement at ftp poker forum and moved it off site exactly for that but at the time it was to expedite funds as well as to avoid fees it was still going as far as i knew till they yanked the forum as it was using the . com same as ftp .com

    i believe play chip . net still is in tact [ i believe?]

    it of course was by invatation /or aplication , if u were questionable u were out ; proviso i never used it ;)

    A one off payment could be considered a 'gift' if you explained to mr bank manager you knew the person, they had won the lottery or something and they were giving you a monetary gift, whether or not it would succumb to tax or not I don't know, but repeated payments would indeed be money laundering since you would probably want to take a cut of the transfer and there was no tangible assets attached to the money

    While this is a good idea, the posting of which casinos are doing this right now shouldn't be listed IMO. I'm not saying that it's not already well-known who is doing this, I am just saying it's going to perhaps ruin it for those that are enjoying the perks of having this already in place. ;)

    IMO the better way is to provide US player with remote access to a PC which in another country, so:

    1. US player sends a gift to a person in another country who has a PC with casino client installed
    2. That person deposits money into casino account and provide remote access to a US player.
    3. US player connects to remote PC and plays
