USA Credit Cards Approved at Lock

March 7th, 2012 Comments off

A few weeks ago we informed everyone that Lock Poker upgraded their cashier system in an effort to get more transactions approved. We wanted to test the new cashier so we tried to make several deposits last night with our credit card.

We are happy to report that we made three successful credit card deposits last night. It seems the new cashier does have a better success rate depositing with USA credit cards.

If you live in the US and want to deposit with your credit card we recommend Lock Poker. Use our link and also receive a 150% match bonus up to $750 on your first deposit. Lock Poker is part of the Merge Gaming Network and has the best site traffic of any USA friendly poker site.

Also being part of the Merge Network, Lock has great software that is also Mac compatible. They also participate in the bad beat jackpot that gets huge at times! For all the details on this great USA poker site, see our Lock Poker review and claim your bonus by clicking on any of our links.

If you having trouble making a deposit to any USA online poker sites, check out BetOnline. BetOnline has what is probably the best credit card acceptance rates for USA players.

BetOnline has been in business since 2001 offering a full service sportsbook. Recently they launched their poker room and online casino that still accepts USA payers. The poker room doesn’t experience great site traffic – yet but is the fastest growing poker site for USA players. Tournament traffic is low but if you play cash ring games you can always find tables up to $5/$10 level.

The reason BetOnline is growing so quickly is because of their USA deposit options. As stated credit cards work well here and they also offer Western Union and Money Gram. Youcan withdraw your winnings by Couriered Check or Western Union.

Get Your Deposit Approved

December 18th, 2010 Comments off

If you reside in the US it can become frustrating getting your deposits approved to US poker sites. If you find yourself in this situation be sure check out some deposit methods other than credit cards.

Our most popular deposit method is by eCheck. Instant eChecks allow to deposit to USA poker sites directly from your personal checking account. You simply enter your checking account information at the cashier and the funds will be taken directly out of your checking account. It is just like paying a bill online with your checking account.

Instant eChecks are safe, reliable and always approved as long as you stay within the deposit limits. We use this method all the time and have never had a problem. You can expect the funds to clear your checking account in 2-3 business days, but the funds are available in your poker account instantly.

We highly recommend Ultimate Bet for depositing with an eCheck. They also offer a great sign up bonus of 111% match up to $1100. See all poker sites that accept echecks and get your deposit approved.

If you must use a credit card to deposit, also see our USA Credit Cards page for a listing of poker sites where credit cards really work. Another great alternative is UseMyWallet where you can deposit to your UseMyWallet account with a credit card and transfer the funds to your poker account. UseMyWallet also allows deposit with eChecks, but you must wait 5 business days for your first deposit by eCheck to clear before the funds are available. Subsequent deposits are available instantly.

The credit card option is now working fine at UseMyWallet. You can once again deposit to your UseMyWallet account with your credit card and then transfer the funds to your favorite poker room.

UseMyWallet Issues

November 26th, 2010 Comments off

If you try to deposit with UseMyWallet by credit card, you will notice the credit card option states “Option is temporarily unavailable”. We have contacted UseMyWallet to inquire, as we have seen this message a few times in the day or so. After speaking with UseMyWallet they state they are vigorously working on correcting the issue but were unable to give a timeline when they believe it will be fixed.

In the meantime you can deposit to other USA online poker sites where credit cards work well. See here for a listing of poker sites that accept USA credit cards or you can also use an eCheck to get your deposit approved.

As soon as we hear UseMyWallet has rectified the problem we let you know.
