There are quite a few different ways to deposit money onto your online poker site, and it can get a bit confusing as well.  We’ll explain more in-depth the multiple different options that online poker sites offer for depositing money onto their sites.  One key thing to remember is that there are quite a few more deposit options for players outside of the United States.  The United States only offers a few select deposit methods onto online poker sites.  We’ll explain the options for both US players, and also International players.

Poker Deposit Methods for US Players

Prepaid Card

Prepaid cards are new form of deposit method offered to US players.  You will use a debit or credit card to purchase a prepaid card, and with that card you receive a personal pin number.  This number will be used in the poker cashier in order to transfer the funds to the online poker room from the prepaid card.  This has been found to be incredibly successful when depositing onto an online poker site.


Click2Pay ranks near the top as one of the most popular and common types of deposit methods for both US players and International players as well.  You fund your Click2Pay account with a bank account, credit card, debit card, or bank deposit over the counter.  The funds go straight into your account, and can be used to deposit onto the online poker site of your choice from there.


E-Checks are just checks that can be used online.  E-Checks aren’t used often, but are a great way to fund your online poker account, and most online poker sits will still allow a player to use the E-Check method to deposit.


MoneyBookers is an E-Wallet poker deposit method which most online poker websites do allow.  Funds are deposited into MoneyBookers and from there you can deposit from the site into your poker account.  In order to use MoneyBookers, players must have a bank account to verify and open up a MoneyBookers account.

Poker Deposit Methods for International Players


Neteller is one of the easiest poker deposit methods online.  Nearly every online poker site accepts Neteller, and some online poker sites even work directly with poker rooms in order to withdraw money instantly to your Neteller account.  Neteller even offers ATM cards as well, which can be used to withdraw money out of worldwide.


PaysafeCards are perfect for players in Europe, as they are prepaid cards that you can buy there.  These cards are accepted at a large number of rooms, and make depositing money very easy.  They are just like the prepaid cards that are offered to US players.


Instadebit is an excellent poker deposit option which is offered to players in Canada.  It goes through just as a check or debit card would, making deposits completely safe and the money comes straight out of your bank account.  There are no fees associated with InstaDebit either, which is a big plus.


Ukash is an interesting poker deposit method for international players.  This prepaid method allows players to purchase this at any local shop that allows PayPoint, payzone, or e-pay.  Players trade their money for a UKash voucher, which is then used to make purchases online or allow players to fund their online poker accounts.

International players are also allowed to use MoneyBookers, Click2Pay, and E-Checks as well for depositing on to an online poker site.  There are multiple different poker deposit options for international players, but we have included the most popular options for players that are offered currently.  Be sure to check your online poker site before signing up with any sites, to verify that they accept payments from where you are trying to deposit.
