One of the many ways to fund your online sportsbook account (and probably the best) is by using a pre-paid card.
Lots of NJ sportsbooks accept this as a deposit method, which we will outline below.
Firstly, apply for the new card through your chosen sportsbook, which takes a few seconds as your details will already be added.
Once you're approved - there is no credit check, so this is almost instant - you'll get a physical card in the post within a few days. You can then add funds to that card from your checking account or debit card.
After that, the balance of your sportsbook account is the balance of your pre-paid card so you'll be able to use your card online and in stores wherever Discover cards are accepted.
Casinos have been using Play+ pre-paid cards for a while, and now sportsbooks are adding it as a deposit and withdrawal method.
The process of depositing with Play+ is almost the same as using your debit card, except that your funds are routed through Play+ first.
Your card will be mailed to you once you make your first deposit from your bank account. You don't need the physical card to start using PlayPlus.
Your funds will be available immediately to bet with!
Fees can vary but are generally very small. These fees are usually only applicable if you use the card in day-to-day life to purchase goods or use ATMs.
You won't generally be charged to load and withdraw from your sportsbook betting account.
Examples of fees are a $2 ATM withdrawal fee, and foreign transaction fees tend to be 2-3%.
