Until last year, I frequented some online casinos, the overseas ones.
The games were, in my opinion, fair with better video poker payouts than ALL of the land casinos
near me.
What became a big problem were the third party deposit processors, which were in China.
They were overcharging me for my deposits, with no warning at all..
After some extensive researching, it added up to a substantial amount over a period of months of deposits.
I had no choice but to stop playing at these casinos, and miss the action and comfort of playing at home.
Having full understanding of how a third party deposit/payment processor works, I have to assume
that most casinos are either dealing with China , Mexico, or South America.
I'm looking for a casino that doesn't deal with China at all, to avoid getting fleeced again.
Does the Wizard or other users know of a casino that accepts USA players that has a reputable deposit/payment
system, and doe's not deal with the Chinese??

I have not done it yet because I really could not find a dealer and wallet that I felt comfortable with but Bit Coin is probably your best way to get away from China and the like . Bovada and a few other big names are starting to take bit coin .

I also thought of just opening up a " trash " account at one of my local banks . Example only : Set up a bank account with atm card for say $ 500.00 ( or what ever ) and deposit that way and then do paper checks for receiving winnings and the trans fur to my main bank account . This way you never have much in your trash account at one given time so if it gets stolen / hacked , you loose a very minimal amount of funds . I have not done it yet but seriously crossed my mind . Bit Coin is still pretty volatile .

You will never get away from fees 100% but you should be able to control them to an acceptable rate .

Good Luck and post back if you decide

I have been a fan of Bovada for a long time. Lately I have been wavering back and forth, should I recommend or not ? It's great they are using bitcoin now, but what about the poor people who didn't/don't/won't use bitcoin? Why are they continuing to suffer? If someone were to get a BC account but didn't deposit using BC could they cash out via BC?

Also it would be nice to know exactly what the problem is and when they expect the problem to be solved.

I live in HK and the banks and CC companies have blocked pretty much all on line casinos.

Then i found Entropay which they still haven't blocked.

You use your CC to charge Entropay for a virtual CC and you can then use your virtual CC to fund your casinos.

Entropay charge you 5%, which is not exactly cheap but if you got no other options or as you say some Chinese companies were cheating on you then this may be a safer choice.

Bitcoin and Bovada. I deposited and doubled my money. After requesting a withdrawal it cleared in 3 days. I had no issues there.

Can anyone recommend a good BitCoin wallet?

Avoid btc at all cost. You can't use it as a substitute to fiat currency due to its volatility - something that can swing 20% or more in a single day or two is not currency, it's variance embodied. Not to mention it will probably suffer a ban sooner than later.
