Troubleshooting Casino Deposit Problems

Despite there being a number of new e-wallet options, depositing funds through credit cards is still the most preferred method for online casino players. Comfort level in using credit cards is high, they are a convenient option and they work with land retail outlets as well. The only problem is that post UIGEA the incidence of credit card rejections have increased.

If your credit card is rejected once you should give it another try. Sometimes a system glitch can lead to a rejection and therefore it is worth taking the chance of trying again. However repeated rejections mean that the card will not work. If you have a secondary card then you should try that. It is best that the secondary card be from a different bank. Most likely it is the bank that has been rejecting the transaction. After the passing of the UIGEA it has become the responsibility of banks to ensure that funds are not transferred to online gambling sites. Therefore some banks have started rejecting the transactions to certain online casinos. Hence it makes sense to try a credit card from another bank. If that gets rejected as well then you have two options. The first is to try another casino. The second is to try another payment option.

CasinoAdvisor lists the best US friendly online casinos. These casinos accept deposits through major credit cards like Visa, MasterCard and Amex. If you do not have an e-wallet account and would like to give your credit card another try you can play at one of these casinos. If you are already a member it helps because you will not have to go through the verification procedure. However if you have an e-wallet account or are not averse to opening one then you can try an alternative banking option. CasinoAdvisor lists the best US deposit options. UseMyWallet and eWalletXpress are the most used e-wallets by US players. Whereas credit card transactions to online casinos may be blocked, credit cards can still be used to fund these e-wallets. Funds can then be transferred from the e-wallet accounts to the online casinos. 900 Pay is a deposit option that is fast becoming popular. It enables online casino players to charge the deposits directly to their phone bills.

Players do not like to change their online casinos nor the deposit option they are used to. They can take comfort in the fact that credit card rejections are somewhat erratic. If after a week or two you again try to deposit funds at your favorite online casino using your credit card the transaction may go through, even though it was rejected earlier.

Playing at online casinos like Golden Casino that are able to process gaming transactions uncoded and in such a way where you can make deposits at their casinos without issue is a great thing. I think that all online casinos that can accept gambling transactions though all major credit cards have a bright future ahead of them.

If you have problems with one casino deposit method try using another it's really not all that hard to create accounts with all of these different casino banking methods out there. It is a bit of a bummer though as some of them put pretty harsh limits until your account's approved with them which would realistically take well over a week to do.

Well I don't think that there's much to worry about. The word is that regulation is coming into play and that certain States will soon start regulating online casino gaming and gambling online in general. It won't be that long after that where federal regulation will be set into motion. As for issues with depositing I still think that credit card deposits are by far the best means of making deposits at online casinos and always will be.

It's a real shame that it's difficult for those who reside in the United States to make deposits at online casinos. I'm not a believer of the UIGEA or any other regulation that would prevent US players from being able to play online!
