No More InstaCash for U.S. Players

Gambling911.com, CasinoGamblingWeb.com and other sites that don't sleep at night are reporting that Neteller has dropped its InstaCash option for U.S. players, no doubt in response to the charges levied against its founders and all-around groovy dudes John Lefebvre and Stephen Lawrence.

According to Gambling911.com, the below is the message players received when trying to use the option at PokerStars.com:

“Neteller’s Insta Cash option for U.S. players has been discontinued. You may still make a regular Neteller deposit at this time. If you don’t already have funds available at Neteller, please use our Instant eCheck deposit option to make an immediate deposit directly from your bank account.”
