    Does anyone know of a gift card that works for depositing? I opened a Netspend all acess card four years ago, becasue they allowed international transactions, and have been just fine with using it wherever I wanted to, including depositing online. Yesterday, got a notification that there was a problem with my account . When I called, I was told that my card usage had been linked to internet gambling sites, and that if it were used again in any transactions linked to international gambling sites, that I would be denied future services at Netspend. This after having the account for four years!So now, am afraid to sign up for ok pay or anything like that, because apparently they're following the transactions all the way through the agencies that can be used on the casino sites. I asked them how I'm supposed to know what other ventures any agencies have, and was told that so long as no betting was made after the transaction was processed, that I would be fine. (How  they woudk know that makes the hair on my neck stand on end..)I don't want to have to wire 100 dollars at a time.Does anyone know of an alternative, or specific gift cards that work for international transactions and don't have to be registred?All tips would be appreciated. Thanks.

    That happened to me exactly, Calig. My NS accout got locked because they said my transactions were linked to gambling. After they unlocked it, I pressed my luck, made another deposit and they locked the account completely. I think most of the gift cards have the international restriction now but I am not for sure. I have a reloadable debit card that I use at 2 casinos only and have not looked for gift cards anymore.With the restrictions the US players have, I am just fine with playing at only 2 casinos instead of worrying about how to deposit at others.Hopefully others will list how they are depositing so you can get back into the casinos.

    Thanks for your answer, MBen. I went out and bought a Visa Vanilla gift card today, as it stated on the package that it could be used for online gaming. Put fifty dollars on it and happily went to make deposits and kept getting rejected. Called the customer service number listed for it and got an announcement that if the card was purchased prior to March 2012 that it could be used internationally, but if purchased after March 2012 it could not. *sigh* Why didn't it say that on the package?Googled and could not find any casinos that used us banks or processors, which is not surprising. So truly frustrated and don't know where to go to find even a reloadable debit card like yours, because this is not the first card I bought and faced this issue with (had the same issue with green dot a couple of years ago). Crazy to hear that NS is taking this stance..are they that afraid? I used the darned card for four years before they came at me with that.Would you please send me a pm telling me which one works for you? And anyone else reading this who doesn't want to post what they are using openly in the forum, please help also via pm.Thanks!

    I used to Bank at Wells Fargo, and they would let me purchase gift cards, and first one I loaded $100 on it, and it worked for online gambling and had no restrictions.  Then when I returned to them and tried to purcahse another $100, this 2nd time they gave me one that was a newer year one that has imposed restrictions of using it internationally.  I was so upset, but I guess they tracked my spentures from the first purchased gift card, and decided to give me a restricted usage on that 2nd card?  But you can try to purchase your first gift card through your bank, and maybe you will get the unrestricted access at least for the first time, I hope this is at least one small hope for you?

    Hello piggy323 =)I too wish we could find some online casinos out there somewhere that have access to U.S. processors! I did buy a Vanilla reloadable debit card (it's black-make sure it doesn't say on front For US purchases only) at Dollar General the other day and I have been able to use it at Slots Jungle (customer service had to manually do the deposit) and Atlantis Gold (went thru with no problem). Besides that card, the only card I own is a Mastercard debit, and the ONLY place it will go thru for me is the Main Street Vegas Casino Groups (rtg) using their MST gift card option. Just thought I would mention, Good Luck to you!
