Thought I would pass this on to my fellow gamblers. Inetbet initially referred me to this product, www.entropay.com. You register like an e-wallet, and upload funds to a "virtual" Visa. You are provided a Visa card number and CV number (security code.) You can add funds with a credit card, and use the virutal Visa anywhere Visa is accepted.

It is issued out of the UK, so no rejections with casinos or gaming sites.

I have used it successfully at Fortune Lounge Casinos, Inetbet, Casino Rewards, Spin Palace, Riverbelle, Inetbet, Shark...the list goes on. When asked for verification documents, I have just sent a screen shot of the page that is created, and this had been accepted.

32Red doesn't currently accept Entropay if you are in the U.S., because they don't take credit cards from U.S. customers. I e-mailed support about this and they are looking into making it available.

The only problem is the fees are kind of high, but I have had a lot of casinos offer a small bonus when I use the card to cover my costs. Also, if you use dollars, you have to take conversion rates into account. You can get it to display in dollars, but sometime the amount that shows on your credit card is off by a few cents, up to a dollar.

I am not an affiliate, but they have an affiliate program.

Hope this is helpful to anyone who has encountered the Credit Card issue.

Oh, and I fund my Entropay account with my CVS Prepaid Mastercard!

Good tip..

I've always have thinked howcome my country's credit card companies don't make deals with US citizens??? It will be mayhem though.

Nice tip from you.

However, I would like to tell you that some operators in Costa Rica have run with e-wallet services that do not pay their customers. I learned about a bigo problem Prepaid atm had some time ago as well as some processing companies having big time problems with sportsbooks and casinos because they owned money to their merchants.

I know that one ewallet service which is very reliable is Ewallet express, owned by Navaho, however is quite annoying funding the account. But this guys from Navaho are honest and reliable.

Thanks for the heads up :) So much for paying out the a$$ for WU transfers if you're in the USA ;) (For those of us that don't deal with Neteller)

moonchica,

When you are paid by a casino after depositing via Entropay how does it work? Do they refund your deposit back to the Entropay account and then send the rest by check? The whole thing by check? The whole thing back to your Entropay account?

No, the Entropay account works like a credit card, and no casinos can refund to credit cards, so you will have to choose a different payment method.
