    I'm in the USA trying to give Bovada my money via a Visa debit card but it won't accept it. I've come to learn this is a common issue. Can anyone give me another site that will accept a Visa debit card? I don't want to create a bunch of accounts for it not to be accepted elsewhere. Please help. If i need to send someone my debit card info in order to get a response, I will certainly let you ask me.

    Can be intimidating at first, but BTC deposits are simple and fast. Visas don't usually work on betting sites.

    I had this problem at first, but it was because my card company was blocking it on their end. I called them and told them it was okay and that was that. :)

    Now there is something I hadn't thought of and a seemingly easy solution at that. Thank you, kind sir.

    I mainly use Bovada (despite it having delayed openers and sometimes zero props). BTC is super fast with them and they've never given me issues there. IIRC they added a bunch more options as well. Don't bother with credit cards there, you're more likely to get holds on your card for suspicious activity. Plus btc payouts are faster+easier anyway so you might as well have the option set up. Recently they've paid out in less than a day for me.

    Dawg don't use your cards to deposit. You want your money to be anonymous. Bitcoin is the bees knees.

    Doesn't work. I tried getting my friend on Bovada for weeks. Normal bank, Called them said they couldn't do anything. Even got the netspend card they suggested. Put money on it and they still wouldn't take it. Tried to do it with bitcoin but your first deposit can't be with bitcoin. So basically impossible.

    I have never had to use a card with Bovada. I'm pretty sure they just ask for ID pictures to do crypto transactions.

    Where would one purchase bitcoin to then be used for this? I am complete novice in crypto currency.

    Coinbase is probably the easiest and least sketchy if you're just starting out

    Be aware that Coinbase doesn't allow transactions with betting websites and can ban you. Blockchain is a good intermediate between the two
