A growing number of online casino sites now accept person-to-person cash transfers as a deposit method. If you have cash on hand or can’t deposit with a credit card, you can use this method to fund your casino account with cash.
How Cash Transfer Services Work
Cash transfer services have been used by people for decades to send money to friends and family even when separated by vast distances. All you have to do is visit a local transfer station, fill out a form that tells the service where to send the money and then hand over the cash. The agent will collect your information and pass the cash on to whomever it is you specify on the form.
You may not have noticed them before, but cash transfer stations can be found all over the place. You’ll find them at grocery stores, drug stores, loan shops and even your local Walmart. When you choose this deposit method, your casino site will send you specific instructions that tell you exactly what you need to do to send the money.
These instructions will tell you who to send the money to and how to fill out the form you’re given at the transfer station. Then, the agent will collect your money and send it to a casino representative. This person will go back to the casino’s bank, deposit the cash and credit your account with the funds.
You can give this deposit method a try by logging in to your favorite gambling site and visiting the deposits page. Click on the WU or MG logo and the casino will contact you with instructions for finishing the deposit. Write down the information you need and head to the transfer station with your money. Your account should be funded that same day.
Cash Transfer Deposits in the USA
The cash transfer deposit method is especially popular in the United States thanks to a of legislation called the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) that prohibits banking institutions from processing payments for offshore, unlicensed gambling sites.
I don’t want to get into too many details because we’re not in the business of promoting unlicensed gaming sites. Anyone living in the United States should consider trying fantasy sports or horse racing betting. The offshore industry just isn’t very well regulated.
