Direct Deposits to Poker stars From US Bank Accounts

by Lou on August 25, 2007

A few days ago I opened up Poker Stars and to my surprise I saw a note saying that selected US players may now make deposits directly into their Poker Stars accounts from their US bank accounts with echecks. This was news to me. In fact, since Neteller vanished from the US scene a few months ago, making a deposit has been difficult at best, or required using a service like Western Union, which has extremely high fees.

I imagine Poker Stars made this service available to customers who have been with them for a while, and haven’t given them any grief. Poker Stars says they plan to roll out this service to a broader audience in the near future.

The payment processing service is provided by a company called DUN Finance, though they offer scant details about themselves or their services on their website.

How well does all this work? I’ve no idea. I haven’t had to make a deposit and don’t plan to unless my game runs straight downhill and depositing becomes a necessity. But if you’re reading this and you’ve used this new service, I’d love to have your impressions about how well this works. Just send your comments to me, and I’ll publish them here.
