Fast and easy deposits are paramount for the bettor at the online sportsbook and today we will look at some of the latest information about which sportsbooks offer fast and easy deposits. Keep in mind that the information presented here is a form of comparison of the cashier information presented at the US sportsbooks, not our personal experience. Some of those funding methods may on occasion be suspended, due to the complex nature of the funding at the offshore sportsbooks.
As we are all aware, credit cards are the fastest way to deposit money in your players account and, of course, the easiest and more convenient. Fortunately, many of the sportsbooks do indeed take credit cards, but as noted earlier, those options do seem to come and go. Then we have the P2P transfers, which could be done either online with a credit/debit card or in person, the second option being far from easy or fast.
Some sportsbooks are nowadays issuing their own prepaid cards, a form of debit card the customer can use for both deposits and payouts at the sportsbook, and that is a great option if you are looking for an easy deposit method. Check with your preferred sportsbook for the availability of this method or look at the sportsbooks listed below to find out which one does it. And finally, we have the bank transfers, but we can hardly consider those to be easy and fast to deposit money at the sportsbook. So let's see what the books have posted as their cashier options and which are the fast and easy ones.
GTBets is leading the pack with acceptance of both Visa and MasterCard, according to information posted on their website. The Visa credit card deposits appear to be the easiest, with the sportsbook saying "Instant approval as long as your credit card is in good standing and has available funds for the transaction.". Meanwhile the MasterCard is questionable, the betting site telling customers to contact them for more information, we assume for availability at certain times. On the bright side, GTBets offers two prepaid or debit cards that can be used there for both instant deposits and very fast payouts. Check with the sportsbook for more information on those two - Direct Cash and Quick Cash.
Both Bovada and 5Dimes also take credit cards, obviously the easy and fast deposit option for many players, but both of them only take Visa. P2P are the other depositing options and could be easy, but not as easy as the plastic.
