US Casino Payment Methods
Being an US online casino players is not easy. Since 2006 UIGEA ( Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act) many casino and financial companies left the US gambling market.
However, it doesn’t mean that there are no good casinos out there. There are, but you just need to be a bit more picky and to make sure that they can accept your preferred payment method and of course, pay back your winnings.
Popular US Casino Payment Methods
In this article you can find a list of most common USA casino payment methods and the most recommended online casinos for each one. Below that, a short summary about each deposit and withdrawal options, just to make some order.
The most common way to deposit funds is by credit cards (90% of deposits). Visa is by far the easiest one. It is accepted by almost every US friendly online casino, therefore if you can use Visa, you really should.
The #2 place takes Mastercard and far behind is Amex. You should know the only few casinos accept Amex and even then you’ll might need to try 1-2 times before it goes through.
Prepaid payment methods
Prepaid payment methods is a great solution that becomes more and more popular. The main advantage here is that it always work. Of course not all casinos accept them, but if they do, it works almost 100% of the time. They are referred by different names, EZ Voucher, Secure Voucher etc, but they all pretty much similar.
How it works: You click on the link in the casino cashier and you will be redirected to the Prepaid Voucher site. You buy the voucher for the amount you wish to deposit. You paste the voucher code back in the casino cashier and that’s it.
Finally, you can make casino deposit using bank wire. There are some advantages in using this option and one huge disadvantage – it takes too long. It can take around 2 days till you will see the money in your account, which in my opinion takes all the fun from playing. (With Credit cards and Vouchers your account is credited instantaneously).
Withdrawal methods for US players
There are 2 main methods which you can use to withdraw your winnings: check and wire transfer.
Wire transfer withdrawal is available in every US friendly casino. The transfer itself takes approximately 24-48 hours, however the processing times varies from one casino to another and so are the fees. We recommend that you check the casino banking page for exact details.
Checks naturally take a bit longer than wires, but it mainly depends on the Check company itself. Some casinos are quite fast, 2-4 days, while in some it can take even 2 weeks. You can check our Fastest Payout Casino listing for more details.
Rapid Transfer – this is a special payment method used only by Slots LV and Ignition casinos. It means that you will receive your payment within 48 hours, which is pretty amazing for US online casino, but the downside is that you can cashout only $650 per payment and there are some fees involved ($20 – $60, depends on the amount).
