"New" online player - looking for information
Long story short, I would love to be able to play online. I used to play online when it was perfectly legal before 2006 and am looking to jump back in. I did briefly play at betonline
about a year ago but did not have a good experience. I've been reading some of these forums and am hoping that people can clarify some things for me. If it matters, I am located in New York:
1) What poker room would most people agree is the best overall?
2) What is the preferred method of deposit? I would not want to have to moneygram money to someone in Nicaragua as I once encountered.
I read about buying a prepaid international Visa
debit card: does this really work well, and is the money available for use on the sites immediately?
3) Cashing out - obviously a tricky situation, but is there a general consensus of a good way of getting this to work? The Western Union fees seem outrageous. Are there sites that will mail you a check (even if you have to wait) without incurring crazy fees? Is there a site with a reasonable withdrawal limit? (not having to take out a $500 minimum for example). I've been reading about these debit cards that you can get your cash from at an ATM.
If some of the more experienced and in-the-know users could answer some of these, I'd really appreciate it. It may be a stretch, but I am looking for a place where it's relatively simple to deposit and withdraw money without outrageous fees and shady processing. If this is possible, please share. Thanks a lot!
