Getting your money safely onto and off of online casinos is important for players around the world – and not just a US issue. Of course, banking restrictions in the US mean that the options are more limited and specific instructions on what those options are become very useful. There are several deposit methods which are currently working great for US players. These include using your credit cards to make international purchases (Visa, MasterCard and Amex are all welcomed). If your own card does get declined, then some pre-paid Visa cards will do the trick instead. Money transfers using Western Union or MoneyGram are great options for US players, with a very high success rate. You might also find casinos accepting Bank Wires or eChecks.
International players have the option to set up accounts at electronic wallet services. These are 3rd party accounts which provide an extra layer of security and flexibility. Examples are PayPal or Neteller. With these accounts, you no longer have to pass your own bank details to online casinos (or other merchants). It is also possible to keep your casino bankroll in an electronic wallet, using this to take advantage of short term promotions or bonus offers. Other international deposit options covered include pre-paid and voucher options which can be used anonymously.
