    That's what I realized yesterday - I was playing on Villento, and it finally dawned on me that I haven't seen an actual withdrawal for a LONG time, and 'why not?' I asked myself. Not because I have done uniformly bad (I've been up and I've been down, regardless of casino) but because my bank will not accept international wires; therefore, I can't take a wire from a casino, not from UMW, and I can't cash out, period. Even if I did have a bank that would take wires, like TD, we've seen that if the bank smells something funny, they will just close your account - why take that risk??

    So, what is the point? I enjoy playing, but if I choose to withdraw and there is no method for getting cash in hand, then this is all just a waste of time. Even for those casinos that will send cashier's checks, there is minimum of $2,000 or large amounts like that. Well, I'm a low-roller, so I'm just out of luck, I guess.

    In some ways it's good, because I can pursue healthier things. But I am disappointed, because I do enjoy it. Oh, well.

    I agree completely. Once I am through with online casinos I'm going back to playing chess. It's more wholesome than online casinos.

    I do sometimes get the feeling like I am dancing with the devil; playing at online casinos.

    I have accounts at the two largest U.S. banks and have no problems.

    P.m. me if you want and will be happy to help you.

    Exactly what Foot said.

    Chase, BOA or Sun Trust should have no issues due to them being able to
    cover their asses if something happens. Sounds to me like your using
    small chain banks that take extra precautionary measures to not become
    "bank-rupt". They just cannot compete with big chain banks like I
    mentioned above. I had numerous transactions wired to my Chase
    account through QT without any hassle.

    Are you using the casinos wiring process or are you withdrawing
    to a QuickTender account and then having it wired to your bank account?

    Been there, done that... haven't deposited in way over a year. Got tired of the hassle. My bank took exception to international wires, and I didn't push it after I got the last of my money out of QT. I know all the ladies at the bank, and they know me. I live in a little hick farming town with no major big banks within a 100 miles of here.

    Took my last WD & bought a laptop and a few goodies to upgrade both desktops early last year, rather than leaving it in QT for future deposits. Why simply donate to the casinos?

    I miss playing, but what raises my hackles is the sheer idiocy of the UIGEA and the way it is being enforced. If the feds had legally passed a bill that said point blank, online gambling is illegal, I would have been pissed, but wouldn't feel like we'd been ambushed.

    Thanks for the replies - I use a small local credit union; I hate both Chase and BofA passionately, so I will see about SunTrust if I can open online. Probably not; if so, I think I may just end up sticking with B&M.

    It just shouldn't be this hard to get my money. If Bodog can P2P money, why can't other casinos? Whatever.

    I am sure someone on here would be able to help. But I completely agree I much prefer playing Poker round a table with my friends. Much healthier.
