Probably not worth it.
After currency exchanges and paying processors (extra because its illegal). Processors just stealing the money is a possibility. (you going to call the cops when a drug dealer doesn't give you weed after you paid him?) US banks declining credit card deposits (very likely). Foreign checks at US banks are also a nightmare. Bouncing and outrageous fees, long fund holding times. Western Union and Money Gram blacklisting players and processors.
Paying extra support to deal with all these headaches.
*This next part is speculation*
The above may be why Lock poker is having issues.
Pokerstars had a system that was easy and profitable and that was taken away.
