Transfer AMEX Giftcard to Casino Accounts With These Tips

A transfer of an AMEX gift card to casino accounts is one of the easiest ways to make a deposit. American Express gift cards work just like the credit card, only the money on the card is paid in advance. You do still have a credit card number, just like you would with an AMEX card.

What Are AMEX Gift Cards

While American Express gift cards are not actual credit or debit cards, they work in a similar manner. To use them, enter the account number listed on the card. You'll need the four-digit CID number from the back of the card to complete a transaction.

The amount printed on the front of the card is all that you can spend. If you try to spend more than the card is worth, your transaction will likely be denied. Make sure you know how much you have to spend before making any casino deposit. There are no fees, however, so you don't have to worry about that.

You may have received the AMEX gift card or the electronic version that arrives in the form of an email. They both work the same way.

Making the Transfer

When you get to the casino teller, choose a debit/credit card transfer and enter the card number linked to your AMEX gift card. You'll likely be asked to enter the four-digit code from the back of the card. Providing the casino accepts American Express, the transaction should complete in a matter of seconds.

Restrictions Tied to AMEX Gift Cards

There are things to know when you transfer an AMEX gift card to casino accounts. These gift cards come with restrictions, such as you cannot use them on a cruise ship or merchants who are located outside of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, or the United States. Therefore, if you are planning to deposit AMEX gift card funds to your casino account, you must be playing in a casino based in one of those areas.

Players from Europe who happen to get AMEX gift cards from friends, family, or associates in countries selling American Express gift cards can use AMEX gift cards for casino transactions.
