PicClub – Works like an ewallet but only a couple gambling sites accept it. I’ve used it and it’s not bad, just limited options on where you can use it.

MyPayLinq – Full service ewallet that works similar to Paypal and Neteller.  Unlike paypal and neteller, mypaylinq is US friendly.

Alternative Deposit Options

Why So Difficult to Deposit

The good ‘ol USA has made it difficult to deposit at poker sites, casinos and sportsbooks located overseas because of something called the UIGEA. This made it illegal for offshore companies to take money from customers located in the United States. Because licenses are only handed out by the US government, they only give them to those in America. It’s a tactic that has involved the Trade Organization because these practices are illegal, and are the main reason you have problems depositing to make bets on the internet.

While these sites may accept users from all countries it is up to the player to determine if online gambling is illegal in their area.  If so, it is not advised to gamble online.  Compatiblepoker is not responsible for players gambling illegally.
