It has been several years since I tried to make a deposit or withdrawal at an online casino. Is it possible for me to make a deposit at bodog, my bank accounts being American? And, perhaps even more importantly, in what form would I receive any winnings? My understanding is that no bank can handle these transactions legally. So, please educate me. Are any of you managing to play on Bodog for real money?

Lots of online casinos, including Bodog, accept pre-paid Visa cards, which are easily purchased at some drug stores. Payment of winnings would likely be paid by a check from an international bank account.

It's that last part that concerns me. An American bank can't legally cash that check. But, I assume you and perhaps others here have not encountered difficulties in that regard? I'm not concerned about the legalities (there is no sign that any of the new federal laws could create liability on the part of individuals); I just want some sort of assurance that I won't get a useless check.

Usually they have payment processors make the deposit from your credit card. Although in the past I had problems depositing to Bodog, recently I was able to successfully make a deposit, since they changed processors. The withdrawal is a standard check and most banks will not who the payer is. Although there have been the occasional fund freeze at other casinos, I've never heard of any such thing at Bodog.

There are also "internet wallets" or "e-wallets" suitable for US transactions. I believe Full Tilt accepts these from USA players.
Some people need to reimagine their thinking.

Yes it is true that banks don't allow casino transactions, and if any bank allows that then it took a lot of time like 2 to 3 days for the transaction to be complete. So it would be better to stop using these bank transactions and use ewallet services like Netteler, Instadebit, moneybooker, click2pay and many more.

On Bodog about 2 months ago my BOA card still worked.
Haven't needed to reup since then.

Not sure I will be that's an utter story.
I have a bewitched egg that I use to play VP with and I have net over 900k with it.
