USA Banking Options Becoming Scarce

May 18th, 2011 Comments off

We are in turbulent times when it comes to playing online poker from the US. We have been informed that a great processor, UseMyWallet, is now having difficulties processing withdraws to USA residents. They ensure us that funds are safe, and withdraws will be processed in the near future.

With that said, until they confirm funds can be withdrawn we can no longer recommend using them as a banking option. We highly recommend you choose an online poker site that allows Western Union or Money Gram withdraws. These options will never go away, it’s just to bad they are so expensive!

Of the poker sites we recommend that accept Western Union some also allow withdraws by this method. Choose a good Western Union poker site like PokerHost. We can’t say enough about PokerHost, as they are a class act. If you do not already have an account at PokerHost check out our PokerHost Review and receive a 150% match sign up bonus up to $750 by using our link. They have great site traffic, a bad beat jackpot and other great features like Deal it Twice and Rabbit Hunting.

Another Western Union poker site we recommend is Bodog. Bodog being licensed in Antigua will never go away. They accept Western Union deposits and withdraws so your funds will always be readily available. Bodog also offers a unique bonus in that they match your deposit by 110%. At Bodog you get 10% of your deposit in cash and the remaining in your pending bonus account. Check out the BodogPoker Review for full details.

One more site we can recommend is Intertops. Intertops accepts a variety of deposit options but has a unique withdraw method, prepaid Visa cards. When you use this option you are sent a Visa gift card that can used for purchases or you can make a cash withdraw at the ATM. Intertops Poker operates on the Cake Poker Network and offers a 110% bonus up to $600. Intertops also operates a full service sportsbook and casino and have been accepting wagers since 1983! They were actually the first to accept a wager online. Check out the Intertops Poker Review for more details on the is great site.

Stay tuned here at UltimatePokerBonus, the USA online poker portal for latest news and updates. We are confident these troubled times will pass and we can all get back to doing what we love, playing online poker. Just be sure to keep up to date here in our news section and only play at the sites we recommend.

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.
