Solo Poker

Similar to the MasterCard Maestro and the Visa Electron, the Solo debit card is a popular debit card system used in the United Kingdom. The card is generally accepted at all merchants who take credit or debit cards as acceptable forms of payment. The use of the card online is, also, becoming quite popular with more and more e-commerce merchants accepting the Solo card as an authorized form of payment for purchases and account deposits.

The Solo debit card is similar to the Visa Electron, in that, the card system requires that the user has enough available funds in their linked bank account before the transaction can be authorized. Merchants and online retailers in the United Kingdom are required to have a system that is able to instantly check the customer's bank account to determine if they have enough cleared funds to complete the sale or deposit transaction. This system has been put in place in order to ensure that customers will never overdraft their bank account and that merchants will never have to worry about insufficient funds from debit card payments of their customers.

While Solo cards are online issued to consumers in the United Kingdom, many other countries will accept Solo card payments. Most e-commerce businesses that accept credit or debit card payments have the capabilities to authorize Solo card payments. Since the card effectively operates as a debit card, it can be used almost anywhere that debit cards are accepted.  The main difference is that the merchant must have a system capable of checking the customer's bank account for enough available funds to cover the transaction.

Solo Poker Sites

Almost all online poker sites, located within the United Kingdom jurisdiction, currently accept the Solo debit card. In addition, many foreign online poker sites will accept the Solo card on the stipulation that the site permits registration by players residing in the United Kingdom. Some popular online poker sites that currently accept Solo deposits include, Party Poker, and Absolute Poker.

Solo Poker Deposit

Most sites which accept the Solo debit card for online real money deposits will charge no fee for these deposits.  However, most sites will impose a minimum deposit per transaction, generally around fifty dollars.  Deposits made by a Solo card are usually completed instantly.  But, depending on the poker site, it could take a few hours before your funds will be readily accessible.

Some banks that issue the Solo debit card will not permit transactions to online gambling sites.  Most of these banks have lists of particular sites which they will instantly reject payments to.  To determine if your online poker provider is on this list, simply call your bank and find out.  Be sure to ask if there are any potential fees or charges associated with depositing money to an online gambling provider.  This will ensure that you won’t get hit with unexpected fees after making your online deposit.
