Well its a damn good thing that the US federal government regulators are looking out for us by blocking financial transactions between US banking institutions and online casinos. Maybe they should have been paying a little more attention to what their fat cat friends in the banking and savings and loan industry were up to while they were so busy making sure that hard working Americans can't have a little fun in their off time.
Well the good news is that you can still relax in the comfort of your own home and wager a few bucks on a sports team that you are favoring to win or play some table games if you are up to it. Prepaid gift cards are your ticket around big brothers blockade on your fun and entertainment and more and more online casinos are now turning to them.
They are easy to acquire and use, so they are something that you can look into and use the next time you are looking for some casino action. Of course overseas banking systems don't have the same financial blockade that are put on US citizens and neither are their banking systems on the verge of going belly up either. Go figure.
If you haven't tried your hand at online gaming yet then you may find it preferable to standard casino action that you may have already tried. To start with, you aren't subjected to the subtle and not so subtle hustle that you are in a standard walk in casino.
Also, it is so much easier to set limits for yourself and that especially holds true for gift card users. This is because, unlike your standard walk in casino that has an ATM and a check cashing service at the ready for you if are having a run off bad luck, when your gift card or the amount of funds that you have transferred to play with runs out, that is it.
