Poker sites and Epassaporte
I've read a few threads here, but I feel compelled to just ask a couple questions about depositing, because I want to know all i can before making a move.
I am a US player, and while I understand that in due time the US will not be able to hold it's anti-online poker stance (WTO rulings and pending cases against the US to impose sactions, Circuit court rulings stating the Wire act does not ban online poker) I dont feel like waiting 5-10 years .
First and foremost, it seems people on here love Noble poker. And after downloading the software and signing up, it denied me because I was a US player
I played a lot on ultimate bet, and i've heard mixed things. I want to deposit a small amount, 25-50 bucks maybe?, and just play the cent tables for a bit, work on my game. Is ultimate bet a site that has a good real money
player base? I've been doing all free rolls, and the free rolls are getting harder and harder to win due to the ungodly amount of super aggressive players.
Lastly, depositing is, of course, a problem. A friend of mine is also very interested in the online thing, and tried to deposit using the direct visa
option on UB first, which never went through. Second, last night we tried to do epassaporte, and it would not accept his card (which is odd, because his card is fine?). I will be depositing using a check card, usable for both debit and credit; will it work on epassaporte, and will the funds actually get to UB? I know epassaporte charges a 5$ deposit fee so I dont want to throw money on there just to try, and waste 5$ (I'm stingy when it comes to small fees )
Thanks for any replies, sorry about the mini ramble =P
