    Hi all...
    Does anyone know of a VISA gift card that works in online casinos
    (... and is available to Canadians) ?

    It was looking like the Virtual VISA at You must register/login in order to see the link. would be the ticket until I saw in their FAQ that it cannot be used for online gambling transactions :-(

    Thanks!
    Shawn

    Hi Shawn,
    there is the "all access visa" which is prepaid and/or reloadable.. and there is "futura gift card" (futura has a charge per transaction and will deny it is from them) do not get vanilla visa as it will not work.. greendot also will not work..
    all access (aka gift2go) can be bought at walgreens, gibbs gas stations or "on the run" at mobil gas stations.

    good luck :thumbsup:

    Thought this kind of info was going to be PM'ed instead of posted in open forum. Not that it's a big secret but just the same. Just wondering for my own future reference.

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    Mystic - I'll look for that All-access card, but we don't have Walgreens up here... nor Mobil stations. I'll have to give gifttogo.com a call and ask where I can pick one up.

    Andi - thanks for the Moneymart tip. So that Mastercard does indeed work at online casinos? I didn't think any Mastercards worked at all for online casinos ...

    Has anyone ever used that NetSpend prepaid VISA gift card? I just emailed their customer support and they say it will work for online casinos.

    Thanks
    Shawn

    Greendot works fine for me, but then again I have only been playing at the grandprive ones (and I mean playing because I've never had such bad luck at any casino....EVER!). They're the only one that will take my credit cards anymore. Roxy won't take anything I throw their way. I haven't tried netspend but I guess I'll have to to break away from the black pit at grandprive. Maybe that's why they will take any card I try, because they know I'm not going to walk away with anything. Hmmm...

    Oh and there's a prepaid card called wwwcard or something like that that will let you fund it "instantly" using another visa card. Yeah, well their "instant" is more like let them contact the bank to verify a bunch of hooplah, etc. I tried it on a weekend and what bank is open on the weekend? I called CS and told them to cancel my charge (like $8.95 or something for setup costs) and they didn't bother trying to keep me. Oh well...

    Be very careful with Greendot... I used them for years! then I made a deposit of $300 and they froze my funds... said "suspicious activity" ... I will not use them again.
    I have stuck with prepaid allaccess visa and netspend visa ever since and have had no problems with them!

    That wasn't my post that asked for the information. I did ask about how the information is shared. I had thought it was this board that prefered a PM rather than a regular post. Reason I ask is these kind of questions seem to get posted fairly regularly and I've been tempted to post a reply but unsure if I should. Could be it was another board where it was discussed.

    Only the narcisstic would think that their covert deposit actions are really covert. Remember when you thought you could pull the wool over your parents as if you were smarter than they. Somehow, parents always seem to know even if they never openly acknowledge. The DOJ knows whats up even if they(hopefully) never acknowledge and they could stop it all on a dime if they saw fit but currently they are not sweating the small stuff. Its all politics as well as getting the chosen examples. Thus you are correct and it is no big secret and there is nothing to hide. If they want me, you, CM, etc., they will get you and make ones life a living hell whether guilty or innocent. Reality is a bitch............FYI,the DOJ or similar has been all over J.Todd's website. No big deal probably just some poker players..........yeah right, mr. and mrs. affiliate.......... Point being,the government is here but in all likelihood, only a few are on there list..........rant will probably be continued

    I use the prepaid all access gift card. I usually purchase them from Giant Eagle grocery store. However, I reciently purchased a reloadable card, and it can be loaded at check cashing places, such as Cash Connection.
    But please always know that the DOJ knows everything.

    I know that this is the absolute truth!

    On a lighter note... I hope that you find one, and good luck!

    Yes no problems, just make sure your address details match the casino and Mastercard details exactly, good luck!

    Hi Shawn, as Andi said, the prepaid M/C from MoneyMart works everywhere. I've used it for a year and a half and never been turned down.

    As to the other suggestions, they are for US residents, not Canadians. No sense signing up for a reloadable Netspend card if you're in Canada. How are you going to reload it?

    As far as the PM'ing, I'd tend to agree. At the very least, this stuff should be in the America The Beautiful forum. At least that's somewhat private, and you have to be a full member to view and post in it.

    :confused: Pinbaby, I must comment on this... first of all I have never seen anyone post on the public forum and expect to be PM'd without saying so in thier post!
    second of all.... If he wanted it "private" then why post in the Public forum??
    I also note that Shawn is a registered user I am not so sure he can get into our "private section" as of yet.

    So, where or how is it that my replying to a post in the public forum was out of line at all???? (because the way I am reading what you wrote it is implying I should have assumed he wanted it private! :lolup: )

    I never said you were out of line Mystic. :confused:

    I only made a suggestion that payment methods for US customers might want to be dealt with a little more discreetly, that's all. I mean totally up to you guys, I was just agreeing with someone who had mentioned that PM might be the better way to go. :)

    And as far as the OP, they're Canadian, not American...so the particular info they are looking for won't be found in the private forum. All the CC's that have been mentioned in this thread are useless to a Canadian. How would he reload his Netspend....drive across the border? You see what I'm getting at? The card that would work for him is the one Andi told him about, from Money Mart.

    Anyway, no offense meant. :)

    :confused: It's not so much that I am offended. I only felt if he wanted to keep the whole issue private why post on a public forum and then be surprised to see a post!

    The netspend I use is not reloadable... I use a prepaid.. thats all.
    We all know that Vanilla Visa, and Greendot are useless for Internet casinos.
    Basically, I appologize to anyone for taking anything wrong! And here on in , back off this thread.. PS: NO offence taken.
    Have a nice day. :D

    uh oh - looks like I started a big rumble didn't I? LOL

    Thanks for all the suggestions everyone... especially to MysticJoz, Andi and Pinababy.

    MysticJoz - I guess your suggestions won't work for me up here in Canada... thank you anyway m'dear. Too bad though - that Netspend gift card sounded perfect.

    Andi & Pinababy - I'm going to give MoneyMart a call and ask them more about their prepaid card. Do you know if they also offer a gift card?

    Thanks

    Hey Shawn...no, Money Mart doesn't offer a gift card. This Mastercard is issued through People's Trust in B.C. and is reloadable. It's $20 to purchase, and subsequent loads are free if you perform any sort of transaction at Money Mart. If you simply load funds with no transaction, it's $2 per load and I think it holds up to $5,000. They give you a temporary card on the spot, and you should receive your permanent card within approximately two weeks. It is exactly like a Mastercard, and you can also withdraw your funds from any ATM machine. As Andi mentioned, just make sure that your address at whichever casino matches the address on file with your Mastercard..or you'll be denied.

    If you want more info on it, go to You must register/login in order to see the link. and browse the site. Once you have your card, you can also login through there to check your balance and transactions.

    Mystic, you're not getting my point. Shawn didn't ask for people to PM him because he's Canadian, there's no need to "hide" any payment options for Canadians (not yet anyway). The only point I was trying to make is that the options you were posting weren't viable options for Canadians, none of them are available for us up here. But they are for US players....and I just thought maybe you guys wanted to be a little more hush hush about them.

    I didn't say it was a big secret in fact I said it wasn't a secret. There are times though when nothing is done about something even though it is known to be happening. That is when it's not done openly and in a in your face kind of way. Hope that makes sense.
