In order to play for real money in the best poker rooms, you have to make at least a first deposit. The minimum deposit varies from $10 to $50, depending on the poker room. It would be very easy to do that, if we could just use our credit cards, but most card companies do not accept transfers to poker sites.
To fix this, the poker companies made deals with the best financial services online (sorry, the best except PayPal). All companies charge a small amount (usually from 1% to 3%) to make the transaction.
We will feature on this article the best options that we have tried and approved. Read below, and decide for yourself.
NETELLER. A company accepted in virtually all poker rooms. After the USA Gambling Legislation, Neteller had to withdraw from the american market, but it is still very strong worldwide, and working to get back to USA. They have a card verification process when you do your first deposits. You can sign up by clicking in the image above.
