      Does Betfred Accept CAD or must I use USD only? I need to know so I can figure out which currency I want to have the E-wallet I wish to use work. I'm trying to avoid the exchange fees that take a percentage of my ENTIRE bankroll. If it were a flat fee of a dollar or something that'd be different.

      Really hoping you guys say yes and no fees! If I run on nothing but optimism at least I'll be happy!

      Thanks a lot

      Hi Garet!

      This link seems to suggest that the currencies accepted by Betfred are USD, GBP and EURO.

      You can always contact Betfred themselves to confirm this of course :)

      Hope this helps my friend :)

      Best of luck at the tables,
      Gary

      Yeah contacting them now, I don't care if I play in CAD but I'd love to deposit in CAD and play in USD. So far, both sights I've played at have no problem with it (partypoker is actually giving me my cash in CAD and 888 will exchange it for less than PartyPoker will... assuming their somewhat impatient online chat were not being disingenuous.)

      I'm going to go work and just hold my breath in the mean time.

      Thanks a lot!

      Thanks for the help err'body! At this point I think things are looking swell. If a few more poker rooms are okay with depositing in CAD and using it at exchange value, I'm just going to keep all of my currency in CAD and COMPLETELY avoid the need to exchange any money at any point in time. Heres to hoping :f_biggrin:
