This site did not grow to be the biggest of the offshore operators without some easy payment and deposit options:
Bovada was one of the first poker sites to offer Bitcoin deposits and withdrawals. You will not play in Bitcoin, as your balance is transferred to dollars to use in the games. Setting up a Bitcoin wallet is very easy these days. Taking the time to do this will make depositing and withdrawing from any gambling brand quick and easy. You can also use Bitcoin SV, which helps with bigger transactions and the poker room can process more transactions.
Your credit card can be used for deposits, though keep in mind that your bank may sometimes decline the transaction. Your card must be able to make payments outside of the U.S. for this to work.
Prepaid Visa Cards
You can buy these at convenience stores for a small fee on top of the loaded amount. These work well, though I do recommend you speak to the Bovada support staff and find out which brands to buy before you head out and purchase one.
You can pop to your local Western Union or MoneyGram branch office and wire money. This will involve contacting Bovada first; you’ll need to send this money to an individual. This is a reliable deposit option, though it is more expensive – especially for smaller deposits.
A United States digital payment service (EFT) and formerly clearXchange.

Note: available deposit methods vary based on region and/or account origin.
Unless you are using Bitcoin, your withdrawals will arrive via a paper check. U.S. banks will accept these – though keep in mind that if you need the money quickly, this is a slower option. Money transfer and bank wires may also be possible, though you’ll usually have to pay the fees for this.
