    Hi ,
    I could not find where to begin a new comment so am just trying the Reply function . Some years ago I used Western Union to deposit funds and worked beautifully , but I see some very negative comments now and it is no longer available in my town in Texas . Wal-Mart ( 10 minutes from me ) can issue Money Grams and would be the only way I would play and always like receiving a cashier's check via regular mail . I have grown weary looking for a good accredited casino here that will accept Money Gram so wonder if I can ask for HELP !! I like video poker mostly .

    thanks ,
    Jamie

    See if there's an Ace Cash Express (ACE) check cashing outlet near you. They're a national chain and they sell NetSpend pre-paid Visa Cards. (Don't get the MasterCard - declined too often) Or, go online, to You must register/login in order to see the link. and open an account. They'll send you a card but you can pick one up at ACE. You can load your card whenever you want with Moneygram and the fee is about $4.50 no matter how much you load on the card. But if you're in the US you'll probably also want a UseMyWallet/QuickTender (QT) account. Most online casinos offer that as a deposit/cashout method for US players. Ask support at your casino to open a QT account for you as you can't yourself. Otherwise when you cashout a casino check can take over a month to arrive by mail these days. Stay away from Western Union. Here's why: http://www.casinomeister.com/forums...my-netspend-visa-ripped-off-6.html#post330658 Good luck!

    Money Gram

    Hi ,

    I have never gotten a money gram , but this is the information I have from Wal-Mart and would seem it would a fool-proof way to wire money ( if there is such a thing ? ) Western Union was here in this town in Texas , but no longer here . That too worked beautifully for several years . I think withdrawals from winnnings is great when paid promptly via cashier's check .

    Wal-Mart info :


    Send money to friends and family around the world in 10 minutes, for a great low fee.*
    Wal-Mart uses MoneyGram to transfer your money.
    It's quick. Your money gets where it's needed in just 10 minutes.
    It's convenient. There are 125,000 MoneyGram agent locations in 170 countries and territories, so there's always one nearby.
    It's available to everyone. You don't need a bank account or credit card.
    It's personal. You can add a 10-word message and even get a complimentary phone call from MoneyGram to confirm the money has arrived.**
    Follow these simple steps to send money:
    Step 1: Go to the Wal-Mart MoneyCenter or the customer service desk of any Wal-Mart store and ask for a Money Transfer form.
    Step 2: Pay the amount of transfer plus the low-cost transfer fee. You may also include a free 10-word message on the form.
    Step 3: You'll get a reference number. Give it to the person you're sending money to. In just 10 minutes the money will be ready to pick up.*


    Thanks for the response to my post .

    Hi Laurie ,
    I have about given up on online play , but wonder why nobody seems to consider Money Gram from Wal-Mart or CVS Pharmacy ? I was also happy to receive a cashier's check within 8 days . You may have seen the Wal-Mart Money Gram information I posted in another thread , but I'll insert it again here and would like comments if anybody has used Money Gram .

    Well, that's one of those girls that comes around unannounced and either gets you fired or locked out of your girlfriend's house for about a month.

    Now, personally I don't have a girlfriend and I've been trying to get fired for years with absolutely no luck so I'm ok either way. :)

    I use MoneyGram (MG) to send money to my NetSpend Visa Card (NS) and then use the NS to deposit at an online casino. No casinos I know of accept deposits with MG so the MG is no good unless you get a NS because that's what you need to deposit. I use the MG at Albertson's (safeway) Grocery because my bank is in that Abertson's, also. But I have used (MG) at Wal-Mart and also the CVS next door to Albertson's if its late because they offer MG services 24 hours a day. I used it yesterday on January 1.

    This is where it gets complicated: If you win, no casino will put your winnings back on your NS and they wont send it to you via MG. That's why you also need UseMyWallet/QuickTender (QT) so the casino can pay you. You can also make a deposit at the casino with QT and this is very important -before you can make a withdrawal of your winnings from a casino to your QT account you must have first used your QT account to make your deposit to the casino. Since the MG is $4.50 and QT deducts 5% from the money you add to your QT account, (have support at the first casino you visit set you up with a QT account because only casinos can do it for you) you should make your first deposit at each casino you play at with QT. That way you've satisfied the casino's requirement to use QT for a deposit the first time and you don't have to worry about it any, going forward.

    So here's what you should do and the order you'll need to do it in:

    1. Find a casino from the Accredited Casino list here at CM that you want to deposit and play at that accepts QT. Contact their support department and ask them to set you up with QT.

    2. Get a NetSpend Visa card. Either online at NetSpend.com or at a retail outlet that sells the re-loadable cards. Find a location on their website using your zip code. I just tried 79347 which is in Muleshoe, TX and there were 18 locations that either sold or serviced NS so no matter where you are in TX you'll find one.

    3. Load at least $55 onto your NS because you're going to use that money for your QT account and they have a $50 minimum.

    4. Load your QT account using your NS Visa.

    5. Use QT to make a deposit at the casino.

    6. Win money. Remember to take a screen shot to post here at CM.

    7. Cash out your winnings by requesting a withdrawal to your QT account.

    8. Now you can deposit to the casino with your NetSpend and still be able to cash out using QT. QT will charge you $20 or so to wire money to your bank account but since you're going to win BIG, who cares?

    9. Reload your NS and, if you want to try a different casino, also reload your QT account.

    10. And so on..

    Now see how easy that is?

    Oh I'm so glad I'm livin' in the U.S.A.!

    Golly Bern ,

    I had no idea it was uncomplcated !!! Now I know I am sticking with my real casino . Wonder why a casino would not be glad to accept Money Gram ? I can see none of the cyberspace difficulties ( and fees and failures ) that can arise from all of these other folks getting involved . I would gladly accept real money if I operated an online casino unless there is something I don't understand about wiring money in that manner and having it at the location within 10 minutes .

    Another thing I really love about my casino in Shreveport is the fact that they will take out all Federal and State tax on a big enough jackpot if requested and I always do . No credit cards of any kind are needed and they extend lines of credit for markers . I am a fairly low roller , but mine is $14,000.00 and I always pay when I return home .

    Do you see any problem with a cashier's check as means of payment for wins ??

    Thanks for your in-depth explanation Bern and the time you have devoted to my inquiry .

    Have a super lucky day ,

    Jamie

    A cashier's check might take 30 days or more to reach you. You could probably deposit via check at some online casinos.

    Online casinos not taking more direct payments than what I outlined probably has something to do with offshore online casinos being mostly illegal for US citizens (online gambling, specifically, is prohibited in Louisiana whereby "Simple Gambling" is a misdemeanor, "Agrevated Gambling" a felony) and something or other about the U.S State Department being after 'em. Or something.

    You must register/login in order to see the link.

    And you're welcome.

    Hi Bern ,

    Thanks for sending the excellent site URL . Texas does not sound bad and , after having been married for 1 yr , 1 yr in jail doesn't sound nearly as bad !! HA!!

    Perhaps someday I can use a Money Gram , but would not send a personal check . I would think they would gladly accept a Money Order , but would take additional time . When I played Captain Cook some years back , before Casino Rewards destroyed a great operation , I received Cashier's checks in 8 days .

    I'll just keep waiting and watching Casinomeister while playing in a brick and mortar operation . I rely heavily on CM and would never play at any online casino not accredited by Bryan and group .

    Thanks Bern ,

    Is this a casino rule, cause when i deposited a Lock casino, i did so through my credit card. I won 2500 dollars on my first deposit there and lock offered me a Quicktender account, in which i gladly accepted seeing i'm in the US. I never had to deposit from QT to withdraw.They just simply processed my withdrawal and was in my account within 4 days. My 2nd withdrawal to Quicktender was in my account in less than 5 mins. I have since deposited through it but they didn't make me before they processed my 2500 dollar withdraw. So it might be good to check with the casino on whether thats a rule they have before you deposit?

    Not an industry-wide rule. Just a jag-off scuse for some casinos to slow drag your withdrawal. I just handle the problem in advance by depositing with QT for my first ever deposit at new casinos cuz I don't wanna hear all that drag after requesting a WD, after the fact. After that I dep with my NetSpend Visa.
