Making a payment at an online casino has started to become more and more difficult during the last couple of years. Things have started to get nasty right after the 2006 UIGEA bill was passed and after that the whole online casino industry has started to go wild and a lot of payment methods that used to work perfectly for US players started to be no longer available.
In this article we are planning to put things right and offer you the list with all the payment methods that can still be used for gambling on the internet even if you are located in US, and what are the payment methods that are no longer accepted.
Here is the list plus a short description of some of the most popular payment methods that are no longer available to US players to make deposits at online casinos:
ePassporte – The ePassporte was one of the most popular payment methods for online casinos in the past and many of them used it as a payment method to deposit and cash out their winnings. Unfortunately ePassporte is no longer available to any player since the end of 2010. They have closed all their operation and they are no longer a payment method.
FirePay – is just another ewallet company that has stopped accepting payments from US players.
Neteller – is currently no longer accepting US online casino players to use this as a payment method.
Moneybookers/Skrill – is currently one of the most popular ewallet after paypal.
Paypal – There were some days back in the past when US players were allowed to use paypal as a payment method for online casino, but those days are now gone. Even if the US players are not allowed to use paypal as a payment method, there are still a pretty good number of online casinos that accept paypal as a payment method.
EcoCard – is an online prepaid payment method that is no longer available to US players, but in case you are located in EU you could definitely try it. They have been only for a short period of time available for the US market.
UseMyBank – is an ewallet online system that has stopped taking payments from US players. This online payment company is located in Canada and officially they are not obligated to obey the US laws.
