Neteller's Re-Entry into the US Market Expands
Three months ago Neteller re-entered the US market, the US regulated market that is, by signing up to a deal with Caesar's interactive as they prepare to launch WSOP.com online poker room in Nevada. Now it has signed up with Bally Technologies which will give it even more of a presence in the US. Neteller used to be one of the most popular payment methods in online gambling, especially online poker, however that all changed 6 years ago when they were forced to pull out and received a $136 million fine to boot. Neteller did however stick around and continued payment processing withing the Asian and European markets. However with the US market opening up a little with Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware all now having legalized one form of online gambling or the other, Neteller is starting to gain a little momentum in the US again. Bally were in fact the first company to receive their license to operate an online poker site in Nevada and after teaming up with ACEP they launched a play money site four months ago, with a real money site, and Neteller on board coming later this year.
In related payments news, the Ultimate Poker is now accepting Visa as a deposit method, with an email sent to all customers informing them of the addition. Customers may use Visa either online or at the cashier in Station Casinos. While Neteller may be back in the very limited US market online poker players may still use Visa at other US facing sites such BetOnline Poker or Bovada.
