    Do you have a checking account? My checking account has a debit card, and that's my only remaining deposit option (which comes with a stupid 0.8% MasterCard International Transaction Fee). If you don't have a debit card then I'm afraid you're out of luck.

    Best to wait until it becomes regulated in the US. That might happen sooner than ya think.

    Yes, once you get that you use it just like a credit card.

    The downside is all the extra hassle that comes along with it (the sign here, here and there and fax with copies of both sides of this, that and the other, etc.).

    Fortunately for me, I haven't had the luxury of cashing out anywhere for the last several months so I haven't had to fill out or sign any forms.

    Not all bank issued debit cards will process online gaming transactions though.
    I know mine doesn't .

    This is true. Generally speaking, credit unions and big-name banks (Bank of America, etc.) will not allow these transactions to go through.

    Your smaller, local/regional/mom-and-pop banks will probably allow them to process. My checking account is at such a bank. I asked them about online gambling transactions and they said they have no way of identifying or blocking them - even when my debit card is used. I'll keep my account with them! :thumbsup:

    I am with a smaller local CU and I cannot use my debit card either. Some sites will take my VISA but it is always hit and miss.

    My Bank of A cards stopped working long ago. I read where someone made a deposit using theirs recently but I do not want to risk losing my banking abilities over it so I have not tried again. Was using the pre-paids until just last week but have been denied with these recently and ended up buying gas and groceries with the last one. Best to wait this thing out I think.

    Instead of deposting, how about how do you get your withdrawals? I notice that the casinos are very eager to find new, innovative ways for people to deposit. Have they been working just as diligently on finding new and innovative ways to payout wins?

    And players, this is partially directed at you as well. Finding a way to deposit is fine, how are you going to get your money if you win? You should be asking that question as well. About the ONLY casino that I've noticed have no problems so far (knock on wood), is Inetbet, via bank transfer/wire. I don't think I've seen a complaint posted about ClubWorld yet either, as far as payouts. As to the rest, both MG and RTG, it seems that not even the biggest names are immune to processor problems and long delays. Something to think about.

    Ecocard

    :thumbsup:I've been using Ecocard. I signed up about three weeks ago...so far so good. However I do have to say it makes me a bit nervous with the current climate in the good ol USA. I haven't withdrawn yet, so I can't rate that yet. :eek: My debit card will not go through, even though it's a small town bank. Of course there are some sites that will find a way, but I'd advise you to stay far away from those. I had a somewhat painful lesson concerning that issue, Unauthorized Charges! I had to get that card canceled and a new one issued. :mad:

    Amen to that!

    None of the casinos seem too concerned with how to pay US players, as long as the money keeps flowing in. Personally I liked ACH the best (for deposits and withdrawals) because it was completely electronic and didn't have the stigma attached to it that credit and debit cards do.

    But alas, those days are over. I haven't yet cashed out from Intertops or iNetBet but am looking forward to trying their bank transfer - thanks again to fcat for the advice on using your routing number instead of the SWIFT code for banks that don't have a SWIFT code, I'm looking forward to trying that someday!

    But anyway... these days for withdrawals you are pretty much stuck with wire transfers (costly), foreign checks (complete with strange looks from your bank teller), or domestic checks (made from 5% post-consumer content and 95% rubber). Then there's Western Union/EcoCrap/etc but those are all garbage as far as I'm concerned - if I wanted to drive somewhere to gamble I would go to the freakin' B&M casino. Kinda defeats the purpose of online gambling (for me, anyway).

    I know that Poker.com has a Neteller-style deposit/withdrawal option; it would just be nice if others could adopt that as well. But I guess it's hard to set up shop these days in the US if you want to handle thousands or millions of transactions daily, while remaining under the federal government's radar.

    So as myself and others have suggested, if you haven't been playing for a while, you should probably continue to hold out (you could try the debit card thing but even that's a hassle, but not as much a hassle as EcoCard). I have a feeling that the climate here in the US will get much better, eventually. I just don't know how long it will take for "eventually" to arrive.

    I had to do that a few months ago when an accredited casino overcharged me $200 which resulted in several overdraft charges. At the time I didn't know where the charges came from so I had my card cancelled and a new one issued ... pain in the ass!

    netspend reloadable visa works for me just about everywhere

    You must register/login in order to see the link. to order a card online or find a location near you that has them

    *always ask if the store/check cash place that sells them if they are having a promo for a free netspend visa--- in ohio, most places are

    I am sure i will get in trouble for this, but if you are interested, they also have a promo if you use referal code 5646680029 when you activate your card you get 5.00 instantly and if you forget or already have a card, just call them 1-86-netspend and give them the code for 5.00

    thanks

    This is exactly the reason I only play at Inetbet. I played at a lot when click2pay still did withdrawals to my bank but when that stopped I had to find a PAYING option, not a deposit option. Why play if you can't get paid?

    Oh, prepaid visa gift card, works like a charm. Withdrawal through wire transfer or cashiers check from INETBET.
