Note: US players cannot use eWalletXpress to make online casino payments.
eWalletXpress is an online payment processor that offers the basic e-Wallet package. It used to be available in the US and Canada and was heavily popular among online gamblers. Unfortunately in late 2010 eWalletXpress faced difficulties with the US government and backed out of the US market. As a result, eWalletXpress is currently only available for Canadian players.
In the beginning of November, 2010 US players started experiencing difficulties when trying to withdraw funds from their eWalletXpress accounts. It appeared that eWalletXpress had received a warrant and the US government had started seizing part of their funds. It stopped servicing US customers immediately and assured that those who still had funds in their e-Wallets would receive full refunds.
If you’re a Canadian and like to gamble at one of the eWalletXpress casinos listed below here, take a few minutes to register an eWalletXpress account. When registering for an account at the eWalletXpress website, you still see the dropdown menu for choosing your country. The funny thing is that there is only one option to choose from and that is “Canada”. Follow the steps and provide your basic personal information. The process takes only a few minutes and registering an eWalletXpress account doesn’t cost you anything.
Once you have your eWalletXpress account up and running, it’s time to fund your e-Wallet. You can do this by money order or by making a bank wire transfer. There is a $1000 CAD deposit limit per day for deposits made with a money order, but it is free of charge. Bank wire transfers are not subject to a deposit limit. Bank wire transfers are charged with a $15 flat fee and are processed within 5 business days.
Transferring money from and to an eWalletXpress casino is always free of charge. To deposit funds to an eWalletXpress casino you navigate to the casino cashier and select the right payment option. Once you’ve chosen the amount you want to deposit you seal the deal by filling in your eWalletXpress username and password. The money will be in your casino account immediately and you’ll receive an automated confirmation email.
Some eWalletXpress casinos allow you to withdraw your winnings using the same payment option. In this case the step from your casino account back to your eWalletXpress account is free of charge. Withdrawing money from your eWalletXpress account to your bank account is charge with a very high 10% rate (up to a maximum of $150). Unless you’re planning to cash out a ridiculously high sum of money, we’d suggest you don’t use eWalletXpress to withdraw funds. The rate is just too high and there are plenty of good alternatives. You can have the casino sent you a check or you can cash out via a bank wire transfer just to name a few.
