There are many reasons why you may not be able to deposit stickers on CSGO betting sites, but the most common one is that the deposit methods are either limited or nonexistent. Many sites also do not allow players to withdraw money after making a deposit, which further limits your options. For these reasons, we have compiled a list of the top reasons why you cannot deposit stickers on CSGO betting sites.
Depositing Stickers Is Limited
While it is true that there are many different ways to monetize on CSGO, the majority of these methods revolve around betting or wagering. Betting is the act of placing a wager on the outcome of a sporting event or a piece of music / movie / video game / etc. Wagering is similar, but it does not necessarily require an actual sporting event to settle. The two together make up online gambling, which is a billion-dollar industry and continues to grow.
Due to the widespread use of stickers in CSGO, most places which accept wagers (either through betting or wagering) have chosen not to include them as a valid payment method. Instead, they have limited the customers they will take on as a wager to those who want to use paypal or a credit card. While this may not seem like a big deal, it can be if you’re looking to place a large wager without needing to convert your entire bank account to Euros.
This means that if you want to bet on CSGO, you will need to find an alternative means of payment, which we will discuss later in this article.
Withdrawing Money After A Loss Is Prohibited
If you lose a bet, the best policy is often to simply walk away. The majority of betting sites do not allow you to take back any of the money you spent, so it is usually considered a pointless exercise to try and turn a profit in the first place. Some places, however, do allow players to request a withdrawal of their funds, but most require you to wait at least 24 hours before you can do so. During this time, the funds will be blocked and not available for withdrawal. This, in turn, prohibits you from being able to cover your losses and forces you back to square one.
Losing Is Equivalent To A Draw
In most sports (and even some poker games), if you draw a blank, you lose. This is known as a “bluff draw”. In a bluff draw, neither player has a good hand and in order to determine a winner, someone has to bust. If you want to bet on CSGO but cannot use a credit card, you may find it more convenient to go with a bluff draw. If you win, you simply walk away with your original stake. If you lose, you simply redeposit or try again with a different method of payment.
Credit Cards Are Not Accepted
Credit cards are widely used in everyday life and are accepted almost everywhere. Therefore, it is no surprise that they are often used to make online purchases or to bet on games in which you cannot use a physical card (i.e. CFDs, Contracts For Differences, and other similar instruments).
Although it is possible to use credit cards to deposit money on a betting website, it is usually not the best option. Credit cards can be easily blocked by unscrupulous sites, due to the high incidence of fraud, particularly in the form of ‘identity theft’. If your credit card is blocked by a gambling website, you will not be able to make any purchases or wagers from that point forward.
The Combination Of The Above
There are, as we mentioned above, many reasons why you may not be able to deposit stickers on CSGO betting sites. In most cases, it is a matter of looking for an alternative method of payment or trying again when the problem is resolved. However, there are a few situations in which all of these issues come together and make it virtually impossible to deposit stickers on CSGO betting sites.
For example, let’s say you’re a Canadian and you want to bet on a game involving the American football team, the New York Giants. You have chosen this game because the rosters of both teams contain a number of players who are tied to your favorite team, the Toronto Blue Jays. The problem is, the Giants play their home games in New York and the majority of the places which take wagers (and therefore recognize the Blue Jays as an opposing team) refuse to allow Canadian dollars to be used.
In order to place a bet with the Giants, you have several options. First, you could try using an escrow service such as Bitcoin / Etheruem, as we mentioned in the previous article in this series. Second, you could attempt to find a betting site which is accessible from Canada or the US. Third, you could try depositing money in advance with a credit card, as we mentioned earlier in this article. Fourth, you could try using a different currency, specifically the Mexican peso, which is widely accepted in Canada.
The situation gets even more complicated if we take into consideration the fees associated with each of those options. As you may have guessed, the fees associated with using an escrow service or paying with a credit card are quite high. The rates for sending and receiving money via Bitcoin are also quite high, as is the case with all cryptocurrencies. Finally, the Mexican peso does not charge any fees for depositing or withdrawing money, but it can be a hassle to change your currency and take care of all the international conversions.
In situations like that, it is usually best to simply walk away. Even if you end up winning, you will still need to use up all of your available funds in the time between when you placed the bet and when it is settled. After that, you will have neither won nor lost, but the funds will still be locked in, so you cannot withdraw them. In most cases, this is a losing proposition. The key takeaway from all of this is that if you want to bet on CSGO, you need to find a way to do it with the available options or you will never be able to cover your losses.
