re: Poker & People Playing Online is Up
I'm in Canada
, and I've been using my Visa for deposits for over a year with no problems. I guess they made it easier for American players to use the CC too. Good to see. I never trusted those third party Emoney things. Two years ago I had about $300 in some site called edeposit or some shiit, the company went under with no notice and poof, bye bye money. CC is definitly the way to go, as long as you take into account the interest you have to pay to Visa on every deposit you make, and don't go deposit happy just 'cuz it's one click away.
As far as the uptick goes, it makes sense. Lots of people with lots of time on their hands. This is good for the better players among us, as these new players are using some of their last dollars to try to score, and thus IMO will play a little more wrecklessly trying to make somthing happen. Same thing with the lotttery. Why try to save money, cut back on luxury items when you can just buy a ticket to the big score? This mentality applies to the players that are putting their last few dollars of disposable income into online poker. Good for better players, but bad for most people in general.
