The term "e-check casinos" simply refers to online casinos that accept e-check as payment method to fund a player’s account.
While in the prehistoric days of online gambling (the roaring nineties) everyone used Visa and MasterCard for paying to play at casinos, things have changed quite considerably as the internet matures, and solutions like e-check have evolved.
Due to relentless legal pressure and heavy fines by the good folks in the U.S. government, credit card companies no longer approve transactions deemed to be casino related. Even Paypal stopped acting as a casino payment gateway after it was fined 10 million dollars by an American court. The pressure made what it intended for and now it's really hard to find casinos that take Pay Pal
Since nature abhors a vacuum, it did not take long for alternative payment methods to be created. The bigger companies to offer casinos and players new options were e-check, Neteller, and MoneyBookers. Unfortunately, latest gambling ban in US pushed off many financial transaction processors, leaving USA customers with limited number payment options. Please refer to the list of payment methods available to US citizens we constantly updating.
At the beginning of 2007 there were almost no "e-check casinos", but lately it seems like casino vendors are starting to accept e-checks again, especially for VIP players.
