Payment methods for online gambling shrinking

Following the arrests of two former employees of Neteller by the DoJ, Neteller announced that it stops immediately handling money transfers to online gambling websites by US customers. American players will no longer be able to transfer money to their favorite gambling website, using the services of Neteller, and the company had suspended all new accounts opening from people living in the USA. In an official statement from Neteller, the company has assured its USA customers that they money they may have in their account is safe, however, there is a backlog and withdrawals will take a while to complete.

There are rumors that Click2Pay is also preparing to exiting the US online gambling market, which have not been confirmed yet, as there are many online casinos which still accept that payment method. PaySpark and Moneybookers also have ceased dealing with customers on the other side of the Atlantic.

Many e-check companies have denied services to online casinos which accept US players, leaving the only options of depositing money at gambling websites from Americans to credit cards (where the casinos have third party credit card processors) and wire transfer directly to the online gambling website's account. EcoCard and eWalletXpress are still available, but it is unclear for how long, as neither company has come out with a statement on the issue.
