Hi all. I'm new to this site, and have a couple questions about online gambling.
First, what is the best rule regarding requesting payouts from casinos. In other words, if you win a good sized amount of money, should you take it all or leave some of it with the casino. I've noticed some people mention cashing out everytime they win. Is it safer to cash out evertime?

Also, I am a U.S. player, and I realize the credit card issue plagues U.S. players. I have a Pay Pal account, but have noticed there are not many casinos with the Pay Pal option. It takes lots of time searching for casinos that I can play in.
Because of identity theft, many of us will not supply businesses like NetTeller with our Social Security numbers so that limits us in our choices.
Any and all suggestions are welcome.
Thanks, mayjacck

First never use Paypal for a casino. This would be a big red flag in my eyes. Anyone, merchant or player, caught using Paypal for online gambling risks having their account frozen and funds seized.

Neteller is the only way to go. They are legit, just give themyour social. They only use it to make sure you are who you say you are. I have never read a story about anyone having their identity stolen by a Neteller employee.

I agree about Neteller. It's been great so far.

Your money is safe with the casino too - if you pick safe casinos.

Go through a reputable portal like Casinomeister and you will play at places you can trust more.

If you are going to play every bonus every casino sends you in the mail without your having played there before, it may well not be safe to leave your money there.

As long as you are careful in your choice of casinos, there is no reason to pull out your money quickly, except the one that you may not trust yourself with the money there and play more than you want.

You will definitely want a Neteller account. Nearly every online casino accepts Neteller, so it makes things much easier. Thousands have given them their socials without any stories of identity theft.

If you are still adverse to Neteller, many casinos also take eCheck, PrePaid ATM and the good old fashioned Check by mail. Personally, I would be more concerned about sending a check through the mail to an online casino since they are all offshore, and who knows how long it will take for them to receive it.

Neteller is now a public company & trades on the stock exchange so I would definately trust them, besides they have to much to lose by allowing any type of comprimisation of an account holders account. The other alternative that I've used is ECO they actually ask for bugger all info & all the MG casino accept this payment. I've never had any problem with them. You could also take a look at Use My Bank it's a Canadian Company that allows you to do a direct transfer from your bank account. I have not used them myself but all good MG casino use them so they must be ok.
