I want to give credit where credit is due, so special thanks to s163999 for letting us know about this new payment option:

Original NuCharge thread

Bodog (And I'm sure others soon, hopefully) now offers NuCharge as a means for USA players to deposit. NuCharge is pretty much a spinoff of PartyGaming's idea of selling Phone Cards and letting you transfer the phone card balance to your Bodog account.

I made a $200 deposit, and the fee was only $6. That works out to 3%, which is not bad at all. They're not being outrageous by any means. This rate is only .1% higher than Neteller was charging to directly fund your account.

I know for a fact that "Restricted" cards WILL WORK USING THIS METHOD.

I guarantee that Bodog will get a rush of signups after word of this gets around!!

My account was funded in SECONDS after going through the pin # and security code via Email from NuCharge and entering it in the Bodog client.

BEWARE:

DO NOT enter any false information when signing up at NuCharge! When they ask you for the last 4 digits of your SS#, GIVE THE CORRECT NUMBERS. They will ask you questions that verifies the information given to you. IE: County of residence in the past, etc etc....

Besides the above, I would highly recommend using this service.

Also, the "Main" website of NuCharge is www.makeapurchase.net. I'm assuming this is the "Parent" company.

You can signup directly, without having to go through the casino link at: Link Removed ( Old/Invalid)

It's a shame that they don't have a list of casinos that offer this payment option. Maybe someone could give them a call? I'm too lazy :p

Enjoy! :thumbsup:

Thanks for the info re: deposits. How do they handle withdrawals/payments back to the player? If funded with a credit card does it go back on the card as a credit? Is this still a phone card thing or something else entirely?


Thanks,

I'm assuming you can still use it as a phone card if you wanted to. They have to keep it legit and all. Say you bought a $300 phone card and only deposited $200 into a casino. I'm guessing you would still have $100 to use for calls.

For withdraws, I believe you would have to go through the casino itself and get a withdraw to your bank or whatever.

Thanks. I already have more phone cards than I know what to do with - last thing I need is more minutes on another phone card.

I think any kind of direct transfer may now be out for Casino's to US Banks. Does anyone know otherwise? Maybe a couriered / Fed Ex check is the only answer here?

It's really almost too much of a hassle...guess I'll stick to Vegas (this March) or Atlantic City (NJ) or Foxwoods/Mohegan Sun (CT). The NJ and CT casinos are within 2-3 hours driving time for me.

Best,

AC? Where are you at? Do you play poker? I live about 2.5 hours from AC myself. Maybe we could hookup sometime and head down?

I'm definitely going to try my luck at some WSOP circuit even satellites down at AC in March...

But, back on subject:

Bodog will process 1 (One) ACH cashout FREE per week.

They will also send you a check via post, or courier (Courier is $20).



edit: Damn, why didn't I start playing at Bodog before now. There's so many fish!

Thanks for the info - I'm still worried about an ACH payment though. Feds are all over any kind of bank transfers between casinos and US Banks. Not that I've been winning enough lately to get anyone's attention, but you never know.

I'm in southern CT (right near the NY border) so can get to either AC or the CT casino's depending upon whether or not I want to fight the I-95 traffic or the Garden State Parkway traffic.

Let me know the next time you're heading to AC maybe we can hook up. Where do you like to play there?

Best,

I just found out this morning that it's not ACH. It's WU :D

Check out the new Bodog thread I started.


btw, I play at Caesars & Ballys mostly...

This could have been posted in the original thread, the thread was 'only 1 day old.'
We now have to follow two Nucharge threads and two Bodog threads each no more than one day old. All closely related to the same subject. Clutter was supposedly one of the issues made for the creation of this forum.

I do very much appreciate the information though winbig & Riffrafter.

I never paid a fee to deposit to NETeller, even for a same day deposit, I could get up off my butt and go deposit cash in their account at B of A, and have the deposit credited to my NETeller account the same day.

Now it's just too damn bad BoDog changed the bonus from 10% to 5%. Maybe I could get some pointers from cipher on their SD BJ?

I received a 10% bonus on my signup yesterday...

I think I had heard somewhere that the 10% BoDog Bottomless bonus was cut to 5% ? Quite possible that the SUB is still 10%, dunno, for sure?

Would imagine that after the dust settles, I'll be playing some BoDog blackjack & VP. The famous single deck game was when they were still on BOSS?

Bodog no longer offers the reload bonus at all, they said it was due to higher deposit/withdrawal transaction costs for them.

Ugh....

Update:

Their support number rings into a full voice mailbox. Not good. Awaiting an email response now.

My problem with them now is the fact that you can only have ONE card registered with them at any given time. This is a major problem if you use gift cards to deposit.
