What Deposit Options Are Available to US Players?

Because of the UIGEA, the number of payment options open to US players is quite limited. Below we’ve listed each payment method and the casino that accepts this method. By far the most popular US casino deposit option is credit card, however players will have a better success rate for deposits using a Visa than they will a MasterCard. Likewise, not all casinos accept the same credit cards. While Visa and MasterCard are universally accepted, some casinos will allow American Express, while others won’t. Use the information below to find the right casino accept your preferred payment method.

Visa Casinos – All of the casinos listed above accept Visa credit cards. The minimum deposit using this method is $25 across the board. You also have the option to purchase a prepaid Visa card, which you can use to deposit at any of the US casinos above.

American Express Casinos – The only casinos accepting American Express deposits from US players are Grand Parker and Loco Panda.

MasterCard – MasterCard is accepted at all of the casinos, however MasterCard is definitely stringent on gambling purchases. For this reason, we suggest you try Loco Panda first followed by Grand Parker. These USA online casinos have a better processing rate for MasterCard purchases.

eChecks – As of right now, there are no US casinos accepting eCheck / instant check deposits. We will update this page accordingly should a casino provide this service. You can also visit for a list of poker rooms offering this option.

Western Union – Western Union is another option for American casino players. While the benefits of this payment method include convenience and speed, it’s definitely one of the more costly options and should only be used as a last resort. Western Union casino deposits come with a hefty fee. The fee starts at $25 and can increase from there. For this reason, it’s usually only used by American casino players that want to deposit an above average amount. That said, there are no fees to cash out your winnings.

All of the US casinos above accept Western Union transfers. To use this method, create an account, select the money transfer option in the cashier and follow the instructions provided to send the payment. Normal waiting time for deposits is generally 1 – 2 hours.

MoneyGram Casinos – Again, this method is a money transfer service and as such requires you to pay a fee to send the money to a US casino. Loco Panda, Win Palace and Grand Parker are the only real money US casinos accepting deposits from MoneyGram.

Prepaid Credit Cards – Some of the casinos will allow you to purchase a “virtual” pre-paid credit card, should your own credit card not work.One of the “virtual” credit card companies is MyPaylinQ. Purchasing a prepaid card is as safe and secure as using your own card to deposit to a US casino. You would simply log into the casino, select the MyPaylinQ logo and complete a purchase with them. Once done, you would then deposit to the casino using your prepaid card. It’s the exact same process as using your own bank issued credit card but one extra step.

Is the Software Safe to Download?

Yes. All of the casinos use 128-bit SSL encryption and are malware free. The encryption ensures that everything from your password to financial information is 100% safe and secure. This is the same technology your bank uses.

Are There Any US Casinos for Macs?

Of course! Mac players will have to use the no download feature to play on a US casino. To date, there are no online casinos offering a native Mac client. They all rely on the instant play version of their site. The only drawback to this is that the Mac casino does not have the same game selection as the PC version. You will still have plenty of slots and casino games to choose from, but you won’t have the huge selection that Windows users receive. Other than that, there are no other significant differences from the two versions.

Do I Have to Receive the Bonus?

No. You do not have to accept any of the bonuses you see above. If you prefer to decline the offer, simply contact customer support and let them know prior to making your first deposit. If by chance your account is credited with the bonus, you will need to speak with CS and request that they remove BEFORE you make your first bet.

What Are Bonus Rollover Requirements?

The rollover requirements will vary from one United States online casino to another. Most casinos have at least a 20 x play through requirement in order to clear the bonus. This is an average. We’ve seen casinos with a 35 – 40 x rollover. Make sure you check the terms and conditions first before accepting any bonus.

Are US Online Casinos Safe & Fair?

Yes and no. Most online casinos accepting US players are safe. But like any business, there are always those bad apples. The casinos we listed here are licensed and submit to regular audits to ensure that the games are fair. Likewise, they don’t have any complaints for not paying out winners. All four casinos pay on time and without a problem as long as you’ve completed your identification fax back form.
