Online Deposit Options For American Players

Players at online bingo sites and casinos located in the United States nay have some difficulties funding their accounts and withdrawing winnings. This is because of the ill-advised Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act passed in 2006. (UIGEA) This nasty piece of legislation was slipped into a must pass port security bill at the last minute and was presented for a vote during a late night session of congress. In face most legislators were unaware of the provision and a poll taken shortly after showed that a majority would not have voted for the law as a standalone piece of legislation. Since its passage the law has caused headaches for players and online bingo sites and casinos. Fortunately there are still several ways American players can fund their accounts.

Credit cards are probably the quickest and easiest way to fund an account at an online bingo site. Many credit cards still allow players from the United States to use their cards for online bingo transactions. Pre-pay credit cards are a sure bet and can be used at most casinos. Players should read and understand all of the policies of the credit card company. There are many casinos and online bingo sites that still accept Visa and MasterCard.

American express cards may also be used but can be tricky. Because of the high merchant fees charged by Amex many online bingo sites and casinos do not accept Amex cards.

eChecks are connected directly to the player’s bank account and may be used for deposits and withdrawals.

Click2Pay is used by many Americans and is accepted at most major online bingo sites and casinos. Unfortunately they are no longer accepting new players from the United States.

eWallerXpress is very popular with American players. eWallerXpress gives American players the ability to deposit funds from their checking accounts.

UseMyWallet is another popular banking option that offers players the ability to make quick and secure deposits at online bingo sites and casinos.

900Pay is a unique option that allows players to make deposits at online bingo sites and casinos by making a charge to their home phone bills. Players using this option should go to their website and read and understand all of the terms and conditions.

In the very near future online bingo and gambling in the United States may be legalized. Several states have announced plans to offer online casino games to residents and many experts believe that online gaming will be legalized in the US in 2013.
