Making a deposit to an online poker room

What is the best way to make a deposit to your favourite online gambling site?  That depends on where you are from, what stakes you play and what type of gambling you enjoy.  Note: If you are using an eWallet that accepts Americans, then it would wise to keep your money in it for the least possible amount of time and always have a low balance only.  Many eWallets have been shut down by the United States government.  You should never put any funds in an eWallet, that you can not afford to have seized.

For the some what regular online poker player; You can use your credit card to make deposits, but we recommend that you set up an electronic bank account like Moneybookers or NETeller. Currently there are no eWallet systems that I would trust that accepts payments from the United States.

For the more frequent poker player; Making initial deposits with your credit card is a good idea. If you are an International poker player we recommend that you set up an electronic bank account like Moneybookers or NETeller to make withdrawing money faster and more convenient.  Having an electronic bank account allows you to transfer money from your bank account quickly, and gives you the convenience of transfers from your personal computer.
