Visa Deposits at Pokerstars
Many people don’t realize that you can still make deposits on Pokerstars using your VISA card. While the US government is trying to limit the ability of American players to make deposits, the truth is that most US players can still use their VISA credit and debit cards. While some banks do have blocks on using their VISA cards at Pokerstars, many still do not. This is good news for online poker players. For non – US players, using your VISA credit card to make deposits is easy, and they almost always work. You can also use VISA credit cards at Full Tilt Poker, Bodog Poker, and Party Poker (non – US players).
The obvious benefit of depositing with your VISA credit card is that it’s a fast and simple way to fund your account. In less than a minute you can make your deposit, have your money in your account, and start playing.
Players have other instant deposit options at Pokerstars as well, but none quite as easy as using their VISA card (or other credit & debit cards for that matter). For US players, Pokerstars instant deposit options include VISA, Mastercard, Diners Club, Instant eChecks, and Click2Pay. All of these options are safe, secure and instant.
What If My VISA Card is Turned Down at Pokerstars?
If your VISA card gets turned down, don’t take it personally. Pokerstars wants you to be able to make VISA deposits, it’s not their fault. If you get turned down it’s because your bank has blocked their customers from being able to make deposits at Pokerstars.com. This is more likely to happen to US players than non – US players.
If your VISA credit card does not work, try using a card from another bank. Like mentioned above, some banks block these deposits, but some do not – or are not able to. If you have VISA credit cards and/or debit cards from a few different banks, most likely you’ll find one that works. Play at Pokerstars Now.
My VISA Didn’t Work at Another Poker Room, Will it Work at Pokerstars?
Possibly. Just because your VISA credit card didn’t work at Full Tilt Poker, Bodog, or another online poker room doesn’t mean it won’t work at Pokerstars. Even banks that attempt to block online poker deposits don’t always succeed in this. Most banks miss different rooms because they don’t know the name of the processor to block. So, it’s always worth a try.
Before you go to Pokerstars, make sure you write down marketing code TEN500 and bonus code Stars600. During the registration process is when you will be asked for the marketing code. Once you’ve registered your new account, the next step is to make your first deposit. This is when you’ll be asked for your bonus code. Used together you can get the new 100% matching, $600 bonus that Pokerstars is offering. We don’t know how long this bonus will last, so it’s a good idea to register now while it’s still available.
