I'm sure there are a few that are reputable. But personally I stay clear of these online places. Webmasters and programmers can locate your ip right to your computer room. Its reverse hacking. I dont trust any gambling site. Possibly the ones advertised on TV and radio but who knows.
I had a buddy who was addicted to one and would lose his shirt on line.
To me they are right up there with the porn web sites, operating with tactics like malicious code and trojans. But thats just my take, maybe Im too paranoid.

I use Party Poker.com for play chips and practice play. And I used to use Full Tilt.net and Ultimatebet.com for real money tournies. I decided never to use PartyPoker for real money tournies cuz I heard about frequent "bots" playing on the tables, as well as scanners that can see your cards. About a year after that, I was watching my friend play a real money tourney, and there was a scanner at the table. So that made it clear that no site is safe from hackers. There was no way to beat the scanner, as he could see every card my friend had, and you couldnt see the scanners cards, or the amount of money he had, the graphics were scrambled. My friend ended up just playing it through to get 2nd place and double his money.

As far as info goes, anytime you have to offer a debit card up, they are gonna need alot of info for security purposes. Did you set up a money account for your kids, or just a play chip account?
