Commonly Asked Questions About Defunct Deposit Methods

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Due to the nature of the laws related to the online gambling industry, it is not entirely uncommon to see a deposit method seized by the government due to accusations of money laundering. This has brought some of our readers to question what will happen when their deposit method is seized, as there is now some fear and uncertainty over whether or not it is safe to gamble online with certain deposit methods – specifically e-wallets.

It has happened to some minor deposit methods, such as Gold-Pay, but the government has also taken down some of the largest deposit methods on the market – eWalletXpress, UseMyWallet, FirePay and others. When this happens, most players simply do not know what to do. We have fielded a few questions, and we now have answers for them.

1) If my e-wallet is seized, what happens to my money?

Generally speaking, all accounts will be frozen when money is seized by the government.

2) Will I be able to get my money back from the e-wallet if authorities have frozen the account?

Yes. The government will work with the e-wallet in order to slowly release the funds that have been seized.

3) How long can I expect to wait in order to get my money back out of my account?

This process can be a long one. You may have to wait days, weeks, or even months to get your money back depending on how quickly the accounts are released from the grips of the authorities.

4) How will I have to get my money out of my account after it has been seized?

You will have to wait for them to cut you a check, though they may also wire it directly back into your account.

5) Is there a way to hasten how quickly I can get my money out of my e-wallet?

Generally speaking, no. It is up to authorities to determine when the money will be released.

6) How can I prevent having my money frozen in my account?

If you do not keep any money in your account, it cannot be frozen.

In the end, it is unlikely that you will have to worry about this, as online gambling deposit methods are always working to remain safe from government seizure. You should be well on your way to cashing in your winnings without having to worry about the hassle of your account being locked, frozen, or otherwise stripped from you by the government. This is not a difficult deposit method to use, so you should not have much trouble getting started regardless of how you choose to deposit.

The Penultimate Guide To Electronic Checks

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

Electronic checks are still drawing confusion for some reason, so we have decided to answer some of the more frequently asked questions about e-checks. Electronic checks, also known as e-checks, eCheck-US, ACH e-checks, ACH transfers, and simply ACH, are a way to pay for goods and services online that is as simple as writing a check. We have found that online gambling sites regularly add or remove e-checks from their deposit options, but this is still one of the most stable and secure of all deposit methods. Electronic checks, while ostensibly confusing, are some of the best ways to fund – and withdrawal from – an account.

Perhaps the most commonly asked question about e-checks is the question that is asked about every deposit method. Players ask us more about whether or not this deposit option is eligible to USA players than anything else. One of the best parts of e-checks is the fact that they are almost exclusively built for USA players. That having been said, you should not encounter too much trouble if you try to gamble with e-checks from one of the United States.

How to use e-checks is the other commonly asked question regarding this deposit method. The routing number and the account number on a check are both necessary in order to process payments through this service. You will also generally have to supply part of your social security number in order to prove your identity. We have provided an image showing where the routing and account number are, all in order to avoid confusion. The routing number identifies your bank, while the checking account number identifies your account.

As you can see, both the routing number and account number are on the bottom of the check. Their order may be reversed – the checking account number could be first, with the routing number second.

Some players who have already used e-checks have reported that their bank accounts over drafted. This happens due to people not being aware that electronic check payments do not automatically deduct from the bank account, even if they are instantly posted to the gambling account you had used. This means that, like paying with a real check, the funds may not be deducted instantly. You may have to wait a few days for the funds to actually disappear from your account.

Needless to say, electronic checks are some of the fastest payments around, as well as highly secure. Electronic checks are nearly impossible to steal or duplicate, and these payments are pretty much guaranteed by your bank. Credit cards may sometimes fail to deposit, but electronic checks never have such complications. You will simply have to provide the requisite numbers and your money should be added instantly. Online casinos, poker rooms, and sportsbooks all have at least one of these sites that accept e-checks deposits.

Differences Between Quicktender and UseMyWallet

Monday, November 1st, 2010

UseMyWallet is a very enigmatic deposit method, and it garners a long list of questions every month. We have tried to answer as many of these questions on our page about UseMyWallet casinos, but the questions continue to roll in.

One question we hear a lot is over the differences and similarities between UseMyWallet and Quicktender. These two services are just equally mysterious, and this is for good reason.

UseMyWallet and Quicktender are one in the same. These two payment solutions are differently named but equally useful.

Despite being the same service, there is one difference between UseMyWallet and Quicktender. UseMyWallet is the North American version, while Quicktender Casinos can be used by those outside of the United States.

Both services still require invitations in order to be joined. While this is somewhat inconvenient to the casual player, they can easily be joined by joining the right casino. WinPalace, for instance, will be glad to swing you an invite.

All other questions about these two deposit options can be found on their respective pages, so feel free to look into them if you need to know more.

Prepaid Cards – Answers to general questions

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

There is no deposit method that is as diverse as prepaid cards. Prepaid cards are one of the most widely used deposit methods, but many people are simply unaware of the differentiations between the different cards on the table. We receive quite a few questions about prepaid cards, and we have done what we can to answer some of the more commonly asked questions relating to prepaid card gambling deposits.

First and foremost, we are asked where we can get the different cards for prepaid cards casinos. Prepaid cards can be purchased through many vendors. There are so many stores out there that sell prepaid cards that finding them is not what should be difficult. Wal-Mart is one store that comes to mind. Walgreens and CVS are another pair. Even gas stations, grocery stores, and the Internet can provide you with the ability to purchase prepaid cards.

The basic function of these cards are also a subject of normal inquiry. The truth of the matter is that prepaid casinos function just like credit cards casinos. Almost universally, prepaid cards can be used as simply as a credit card. All you have to do is apply the numbers into the credit card section of the casino’s cashier, and the money will be transferred into your account.

These are the main two questions asked by players who are attempting to use prepaid cards as their deposit method. When you decide to start using this deposit method, know that it should not prove to be too difficult. Prepaid cards were designed for simplicity. Provided you do not get a prepaid card that does not work for international transfers, you will be able to very easily make deposits.

On a side note, if your deposit does not work through the casino’s credit card cashier, you will have to contact the casino’s customer service department. This should very quickly facilitate the transaction.
