ePassporte is a prepaid Visa card that has wide-ranging use, not just at poker rooms. The principle behind the service is that you top up your card and you can then use the card like you would a normal debit card, paying for any goods online where Visa is accepted, in the shops or at online poker rooms. You can even add funds to your card and check your account from your cellphone!
Despite US politicians best attempts to criminalise online poker players in the USA, there are still a handful of banking options left that USA residents can use to play online poker rooms. The most popular of these is the ePassporte prepaid Visa card service which continues to provide a service in the USA for online poker players.
The poker rooms listed below all accept ePassporte for deposits and withdrawals.
Our reviewer rated Pokerstars 5/5 and while no poker room is perfect, Pokerstars is surely one of the best and most highly regarded poker rooms out there. Running on it's own incredibly high-traffic poker network, it's a major plus for US players in particular that Pokerstars poker room accepts ePassporte. PokerStars review »

The current issues regarding "superuser" accounts have been well documented, but the high profile investigation might just make this one of the safest poker rooms to play right now as you can rest assured they can't afford more scandal! Until now, Absolute Poker has always had a top reputation, although the Superuser scandal has undoubtedly damaged that. It's your call, but it takes ePasseport and runs it's still one of the busiest poker networks. Absolute Poker review »

I've seen Full Tilt described as the current trendy place to play, but it's always had a pretty good reputation and it's a very busy poker room, again running on it's own network. Definately a favourite and runs stacks of poker tournaments which are very well attended. Full Tilt Poker review »

The only place that the legendary Doyle Brunson plays online (under the pseudonym "Tex_Dolly") and having recently re-opened to (most of) the USA market, is gaining ground on the poker rooms above. Running on the busy Microgaming Poker Network, Doyle's room is another ePassporte poker room to choose from. Doyle's Room review »

Yet another very popular poker room running on it's own network and taking ePassporte. It's been around since 1999 and the "UltimateBuddy" is a unique tool that many poker players love to have around when playing. Look out for Phil Helmuth at the tables! [UltimateBet review] »
