Poker Depositing – E-Wallets

E-wallets have become quite popular in the online poker industry over the past few years. There are a number of benefits for players that choose e-wallets for handling poker banking transactions. Players can use e-wallets to deposit and withdraw from their poker account. E-wallets are another way for players to protect their financial information. E-wallets allow players to gamble at poker sites without giving the site their banking information.

U.S. players have made great use of e-wallets since the 2006 UIGEA legislation. The e-wallet option speeds up banking transactions and bypasses any interdiction from the UIGEA. Due to the UIGEA and the large player base that comes from the U.S., there is always a need to separate the best e-wallets that accept U.S. players from the best globally accepted e-wallets.

Generally speaking, most of the world is accepted at the e-wallets that will be mentioned under the global e-wallets section. However, players from other countries should always verify with the e-wallet they wish to use and make sure their country of residence is accepted.

Best E-Wallets for U.S. Players

For U.S. players, eWalletXpress and UseMyWallet are the best options for e-wallets. UseMyWallet is a unique e-wallet that only allows players to create an account if they receive an invitation from UseMyWallet. However, it’s not as difficult as it sounds. Players wishing to use this option should contact UseMyWallet customer service and request an invitation. The invitation is used to ensure that clients of UseMyWallet are regular players that are actively playing online at either a casino or poker room. High stakes players should definitely consider using UseMyWallet. The fees are much lower than the fees that traditional online payment methods have.

EWalletXpress is another great option for U.S. players. This particular e-wallet can be used for online casinos or poker rooms. Just like UseMyWallet, this e-wallet can be used to handle both ends of banking transactions – depositing and withdrawing.

Selecting the proper e-wallet can be difficult. First, the poker site that is desired should be selected.

The e-wallet is another tool for poker players globally to manage their funds more efficiently.

E-wallets like PayPal can be used to make purchases or send payments to virtually anyone in the world who has an email address and a PayPal account. There are a lot of poker sites that are now accepting e-wallets for banking transactions and this number is steadily climbing with the increasing popularity of this payment method.
