I can see 2 problems in not playing with the Canadian dollar.
1. I am at a disadvantage of chips since I have less. (Less chips, high the fees)
2. There are a lot of expenses when I want to make a withdrawal I have to accumulate a very big balance before being able to make a profit and can be reinvested afterwards. I am at a disadvantage because my money is no longer accessible quickly.
I just want to add that i am not depositing over a credit card paying 25% cash advance fees.
I am using prepaid credit that you can buy at the store for more security.
THE CANADIAN dollar is just another currency beetween the whole currency of the planet and is could be impossible for a software devlopper to auto calcul all the rate + conversion using the day forex.
So is normal that all site use or Euro or USD to operate. Maybe in GBP to but i am not allowed as canadian to play into the UK.

Credit cards always have big fees, Same thing here also. Good choice as you are saying are the prepaid cards. Not only the fees are less, but you add an extra layer of security there. You never can be careful with the use of them online
pacificrim- love you informative responses, your points are really valid, but at the same time i can ask you this: are you a winning player? if so, then i guess you can carry all that extra expenses due to currency conversations and withdrawal expenses. it surely makes you winnings smaller, but smaller win is still better than no win

instead of using prepaid credit cards and paying the fee on those you should use instadebit. yes it has 1.95$ fee to deposit but comes directly to and from bank account. if u dont want your bank account linked online u can sign up for a free PC finacial bank account and use that only for gambling
