ePassporte Alternatives - Emergency Guide To US Poker Payment Methods As Alternatives To ePassporte

Well, another one bites the dust. Yeserday saw ePassporte Poker Deposits Withdrawn. Some are suprised that they lasted so long... others relieved (with memories of the Neteller scandal) that withdrawals can still be made... the most pressing question on the lips of many US Poker Players at the moment is what Alternative Poker Payment Methods To ePassporte are available?

Will break this out into several of the larger US Poker Sites.... all of the links will do to the detailed review over at SNG Planet (going to take a couple of days to get all the ePassporte articles and mentions in the reviews covered... so please bear with me!)

1 - Full Tilt Poker Deposit Methods : Moneygram is the easiest (and cheapest) ways to make large deposits, you'll need to set up an account then e-mail customer services who send instructions. Pre-paid visa cards are fine for small deposits. (Got to mention our bonus code for the max available $600 deposit bonus = SNGPLANET)

2 - Poker Stars Deposit Methods : Western Union and eChecks can be used at Poker Stars for larger poker deposits. Again pre-paid visa is probably the easiest for smaller investments, though you can also get an 'old school' paper check or bank draft. ($50 Bonus with our marketing code )

3 - Bodog Poker Deposit Methods: With Bodog we enter the world of the instant bank transfer - think eChecks... currently one of the easiest sites to make a deposit with for US players and noticably 'softer' than the 2 sites mentioned above. Please note that we are currently trying to find out what happened to the 'NuCharge' phone card option! (no marketing codes required for the '2-stage' 110% to $550 bonus at Bodog)

4 -Carbon Poker Deposit Methods: Carbon Poker offer the triple-whammy of Fonelinx (pre-paid phonecard poker deposits), Eco Card and eWalletExpress Poker Deposits(alternative US-friendly electronic-Wallets) certainly ahead of the game - this site also have a reputation for speedy cash outs! Use bonus code FIRSTSUPER for a 200% to $500 first time bonus.

5 - Ultimate Bet Deposit Methods: UB Recommend visa and mastercard deposit options for their US Players, and are able to take visa poker deposits from many banks! (prepaid visa a good option if your bank does not support this). Check by mail and bank wire deposit options are also available. (Use bonus code SNGPLANET for 111% up to $1100 first-time deposit bonus).

Well, hope this was helpful - I may be Europe-based myself but have maintained since the legislation first passed that the inclusion on the biggest market in the world is beneficial to all poker players... even more so since I started my poker business.

Too bad about ePassporte Poker deposits. I myself prefer Moneygram. It's usually reliable, convenient and usually takes about 10 minutes to complete. Thanks for keeping us updated.
