The Single Page Online Gambling List

Both rookie and veteran online gamblers struggle with locating basic information about online casinos, online poker rooms, and online sports books. Things as simple as:

  • Does the site accept real-money players from the United States? If so, from all states, or are some states barred?
  • What is the new play offer, its limits, and its playthrough requirements?
  • What are the deposit methods that are offered to which countries, and what are their limits, fees, processing times, and how frequently can a deposit be requested?
  • What are the payout methods that are offered to which countries, and what are their limits, fees, processing times, and how frequently can a payout be requested?

To make it as simple as possible to locate this information about online gambling sites, I have spent may hours tracking down and compiling this information into The Single Page Online Gambling List. It’s a long page that ain’t pretty but it is functional — it displays all the basic information that I described above for top online gambling sites. Currently, it lists 14 online casinos, 4 online poker rooms, and 4 online sportsbooks — representing the best-of-the-best, 5-star sites from my Online Casino Gambling Directory. As time goes on, more sites will be added to the list.

If you use my list, please do me two favors:

  1. If you like a site, click on the site’s link from The Single Page Online Gambling List. You can click on the site’s name at the top or the bottom of the site’s summary table.
  2. Tell your friends. Please share The Single Page Online Gambling List with them via email, social media, etc.

I’ve been playing at every conceivable online gambling site for over 10 years. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me. My email address, and other information about me and my site, is listed on the About The Online Casino Gambling Directory page.

Americas Cardroom Offers Fast, $100 Minimum Check Payouts

At last Saturday’s UFC 210: Cormier vs Johnson 2, I went 5 of 6 at the Americas Cardroom sportsbook.

On Sunday, I requested a payout of my winnings. They offer one free check payout per month, with a low $100 minimum. I’m happy to report that the check arrived Thursday, with no hassles, delays or unnecessary requests for additional information.

In today’s online gambling landscape, Americas Cardroom‘s payout policy really stands out. It is RARE indeed that a site offers free monthly payouts with such a low minimum. It’s one of the reasons that Americas Cardroom is one of the few 5-star sites at the The Online Casino Gambling Directory.

Americas Cardroom has a poker room, casino, and sportsbook. Real-money players from the USA are accepted.

Get your March Madness On at Top Online Sportsbooks

It’s that time of year again when the United States goes absolutely ape shit for March Madness. Play-in games, bracketology, the quest for the perfect bracket, Cinderellas, buzzer-beaters… what a great tournament this is every year, and it all kicks off today.

Top Online Sportsbooks for March Madness

It’s uncommon for teams other than #1 and #2 seeds in each region to make it deep into the tourney, so this year look for teams like Oklahoma, North Carolina, Michigan State, Xavier, Maryland, Virginia, Kansas and Kentucky to lead the charge into the Final Four and to the Championship.

I like to have a little wager (or ten) as the tournaments progress. There’s no question that the games are more exciting when you have a case (or truck) of beer on the line.

This year — why not take the plunge and give online sportsbetting a try? For as little as $100 a deposit that you can put on your credit card, you can get a taste of what’s it like to root for favorite teams to win you a nice dinner, or to find that one game when you just know that the low-ranked team is going to cover the spread against a powerhouse opponent. Once you make your deposit, you can bet as little as $10 or as much as your balance.

Of the 100s of online sportsbook where you could bet, I’ve found that there are only about 5 that are the best of the best. You can find my list as well as their current March Madness and other promotions at this link:

Let me know how you do, and best of luck with your bracket!

Online Gambling Winnings Paid to Credit Card for $9

When you gamble online and win, there are few affordable and convenient means of getting paid. Until now, that is…

Intertops Casino, Poker Room, and Sportsbook has recently deployed CardPay as a payout method. CardPay pays your winnings to a credit card that you had previously used to make a deposit. There is a small $9 fee per transaction, and it can be used to process payouts of between $100 and $5000. The payout takes between 3 – 7 business days after your payout has been approved by Intertops.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more affordable or convenient payout method at any online gambling site.

Intertops Casino, Poker, and Sports

If you don’t already have an account at Intertops Casino, Poker, and Sportsbook, you really should sign up. Play at the casino, in the poker room, and place your sports bets all from a single account.

Great deal for new BetOnline sportsbook members

October is such a great time for sports in the United States. With the MLB Playoffs in full swing, the NFL division races starting to take some shape, and the excitement of NCAA football, nearly every day provides a chance to make a bet and add a little more flavor to your days and evenings rooting for your favorite teams.

For October 2014 only, BetOnline is offering a 50% bonus for new members. This is double the normal deposit bonus that they normally offer, and is a great way to:

  • Add another sportsbook to your list so you can shop for best lines, or
  • Get started with a reputable online sportsbook.

The minimum deposit that you must make to get the bonus is $50. In order to get the maximum bonus, you’ll want to make a $2000 deposit and get a $1000 bonus. Most credit cards are accepted. In any event:

  • You must use a link in this post to signup at BetOnline, and
  • Enter promo code OCT50 when making your initial deposit.

The bonus comes with a 10x playthrough, meaning that you will need to wager 10x your deposit before you can request a payout. For a deposit bonus this big — 50% — this is a reasonable playthrough requirement. There are others terms and conditions, so be sure to read up on them before making your deposit.

Speaking of payouts, BetOnline offers several methods. For players in the United States, they offer:

  • Person-to-Person (e.g. Western Union, MoneyGram) for payouts between $50 and $900. However, the fees are very high for this type of payout ($34 – $180). (You may be interested to note that you’ll find these high fees at any online sportsbook for a Person-to-Person payout; that’s because the fees are set by the processor, not the sportsbook.)
  • Checks for payouts between $500 and $2500. Checks must be deposited at a bank (not a Check-And-Go or similar store), and carry a very reasonable fee of between $25 – $50 which you determine by how quickly you want the check delivers (slower is cheaper).
  • Bank Wires for your really big payouts, up to $15K each. These carry a fee of up to $75 charged by BetOnline, plus your bank fees to accept an international wire transfer (could be free, but is typically around $30).

MLB Playoffs: Oakland A’s @ Kansas City Royals

Oakland is in a real funk, and Kansas City is rejoicing over their first playoff appearance in 25+ years. Tonight, these two teams meet in a one-game, winner-take-all, wild card playoff game to advance in the 2014 MLB Playoffs.

While the odds on this baseball game are different at different online sportsbooks, you’ll probably find that the odds are about -105 on either side.

Kansas City (89-73) will send James Shields to the mound against Oakland left-hander Jon Lester. The Royals went 5-2 against the Athletics this year, but both of their losses came against Lester.

Look for Lester to hold the Royals to under 3 runs, but the A’s offense will be nowhere to be found. I like the Royals in a low-scoring game — perhaps 4-1.
