        Hi,
        I'm assuming there are other Green Dot/Walmart credit card users here 'cus I've seen some references to it.  I have a Green Dot VISA that I've had for a few years, and use at all the Bet on Soft casinos and a couple of RTG's I play at.

        I got an email from them yesterday.  In 3 weeks they're changing the bank that back the cards to their own bank - Green Dot Bank - ---

        "As of February 11, 2014, your card Walmart MoneyCard, which is issued by GE Capital Retail Bank, Member of the Federal Insurance Corporation (FDIC for its acronym in English) will be issued by Green Dot Bank, Member Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation * (FDIC for its acronym in English). Please review the new agreement to the Cardholder and Privacy Policy of Green Dot Bank. Charges on your card have not changed.

        Card, PIN number and current account will remain the same, and no action is required on your part.

        Please note the following three changes:

        Remains in effect from 21 days of receiving this email, you can not use your ATM card outside the United States."


        First, they reference 3 changes, but I only see the one.  Second, at first I read this as we won't be able to use the credit card outside the US, but now I'm seeing it says "ATM card".

        Did anyone else get this, and how are you interpreting it?  If we can't use the CC outside the US, that kills all our casino deposits.

        There just not allowing you to make a cash withdrawal outside of the US.
        Otherwise as far I'm seeing there not restricting foreign based credit / debit transactions.  There just basically locking your card to US only cash withdrawals.  Otherwise for all other activity your fine.
        I'm guess just going along with the paranoia that foreign based cash withdrawals can be risky and if your card is stolen.  It can be hard to recover your money because it was withdrawn in cash.

        Thanks, guys.  Liquorman, yes, that was focus of the email.  The rest of the stuff was garbage, and no there weren't 3 things listed.

        Is there a number on the back of the card you can call and ask maybe? I only used that card once and it was declined at the Casino. What RTG's accept it?

        Lips, I won't call because I don't want to call attention to my account for any reason.   Several years ago I had a Green Dot MC I used everywhere and had for 2 or 3 years.  One day they called me and said I was using it for gambling and they cancelled my account.  I then went to Wired Plastic which I used for about 3 years, then they did the same thing.

        I've had this Green Dot VISA for about 3 yrs now, and use it regularly at Casino Extreme & INetBet.  It's the only prepaid card I use so I don't go around from casino to casino trying to use it because I don't want Green Dot to pick up the wrong code from someone & cancel it.

        BE VERY CAREFUL USING A WALMART MONEY CARD FOR DEPOSITS.  I just recently had my Walmart money card shut down because of "suspicious" unallowed activity.  Just trying to inform everyone what is going on.  I have been very successful using my netspend visa for my deposits.  I have never been questioned or ever had a problem.  I have been using it for over a year now, frequent without a single issue.

        Was yours a MC or VISA?  The one they cancelled on me before was a MC, but this VISA's been working fine for years now.

        I use my greendot card all the time. There has never been a problem making a deposit. Probably because the transactions show up as "retail store" or something like that. Just make sure you NEVER have a cash out sent to a green dot card by "pay my card".

        Hi I also use a walmart /visa green dot card all the time. I have had it for over a year and used it at over 20 different casinos and no problem or denial so far.

        I also just got the up date a few days ago about the new changes. I also took it to mean only cash withdrawals in foregin  contries. Well lets just hope for the best when Green Dot takes over.

        I will be so happy when online gambling is legal in all of US and not this state bye state crap.
        Now that it is legal in three states I think it will be moving fast in other states. I live in CA and I know there working on online gambling here.

        I have a walmart moneycard. Visa.  I got a call yesterday from Miami Club informing me my credit card charged back 3 charges!  I had been unable to log into my walmart moneycard account for a while, probably because of the changes they were making. 

        I logged in just now and there is another charge back.  Looks like a bet on soft deposit.

        My card now has a balance of over $100 and it should be 0.

        Do they really have a right to just cancel a transaction without notifying me? 

        Miami Club was very nice and have not closed or halted my account in anyway.

        I need to resolve this and have the CC return back the funds.  I just read through all the new changes and it does state the new Green Dot is now allowed for use at online casinos.

        Any suggestions as to what to say to the CC so they fix this?

        Thanks!

        Are there any merchants where I can’t use my card?

        Walmart MoneyCards may not be accepted by certain types of merchants such as casinos, gambling web sites, and merchants in certain foreign countries.



        Does this mean Green Dot does not allow it or that it is the casino's discretion to accept it?

        I am looking to buy a pre paid card and was wondering  if Green Dot is still ok to use. I also saw something about Rush card.
