    I'm a little unsure what your question is, but your cards should be able to be used in any language.

    The best bet is to contact casino support and they should be able to square you away.

    Hi - I think I understand your question as being "can my winnings be transferred to my UK switch cards even though I played in dollars ($)"...

    If that is the question then the answer is unfortunately not - casinos pay in the currency you play in (apart from a very small number that will translate into a different currency), and with RTG the play is always in $$ so you will be paid in $$. Now - in terms of payment the best option will be Cheque (often written as check on US-language sites)... This is usually free (unless you opt for courier) and takes around 2-4 weeks from being sent (dependent on where in the world it comes from). The problem then comes with cashing in.. unfortunately many banks will charge you around 5-10 for $$ conversion to UK, and then it can take anywhere up to 6 weeks to hit your accounts, because your bank has to negotiate the payment with the (often foreign) paying bank.

    The other option is to set up a Neteller account which you can fund with a CC but is denominated in $$ - cashins to Neteller are often fast (2-3 days) and often free (often - all this depends on the casino's policies). However, you usually have to make a purchase at a casino with Neteller before they will pay out to it.

    Hopefully this explains things a bit for you... let me know if you have further questions.

    I did used to play at a lot of $ casinos, but got so fed up with these payment issues (not to mention exchange rate issues) that I now stick with ones. More and more offer multi-currency - especially a number of the Microgaming's. If you want a list of good, fast-paying UK casinos just post after this message and I'll drop you a reply.

    Cheers,
    Ben.

    Thanks for the replys,

    While waiting for a reply I managed to increase my winnings too 245 dollors. :)
    After further scouting around sites like this and the net I opted to open a netteller account.
    So I will see if this works!

    Cheers

    Good going! I spoke with Neteller's VP of European Operation's in London about two weeks ago and he mentioned that very soon (this month or next) Neteller will be offering their services in Euros and British Pounds. Keep your eyes open for that.

    An account with Moneybookers.com can be handy to have too.

    Good luck.
