Making Deposits and Withdrawals
If you want to place a real cash wager at any of today’s gambling portals, you will need to have some kind of deposit and withdrawal method ready so that you can add funds to your account whenever you fancy a flutter, but more importantly, so that you can withdraw your winnings when you win. The details of the types of methods that are accepted can always be found in the cashier/banking section of any gambling site, but if you look towards the bottom of the homepage, you will also see the logos of various methods that they accept.
The most secure methods (and possibly the most widely accepted methods) include making deposits and withdrawals with Credit Cards such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Maestro, Solo, Switch, Laser, Visa Electron and Visa Debit, plus several other cards depending on which country you are from but also depending on which casino you are trying to deposit or withdraw from. You can also make direct Bank Transfers and you should find that most online casinos even accept checks/cheques. Some methods are therefore much quicker than others.
In more recent years, e-wallets have started becoming extremely popular, particularly with online gamblers. An e-wallet is a virtual account that allows you to send and receive money to and from gambling portals. If your e-wallet is empty, you can easily top it up by sending funds to it directly from your bank account or from your credit card. e-wallets are ideal for players who prefer not to share their credit card or bank details with an online casino for example.
Another popular deposit method for players is to use a prepaid card, such as paysafecard, Ukash card or Ticket Premium. These prepaid cards can be purchased in various different denominations, such as a $/€/$10.00 card, as well as a $/€/£20.00, $/€/£25.00, $/€/£50.00 or $/€/$100.00 etc. and usually up to no more than $/€/£1000.00. Prepaid cards can be purchased from thousands of different land-based and online merchants but the downside is that although most casinos accept these prepaid cards, you can use them for making deposits only. You would still have to find an alternative method when it comes to cashing out your winnings.
When using a credit card, a debit card, an e-wallet or a bank transfer, the transaction is usually processed within seconds, which is why these methods are so popular with most of today’s online gamblers. Also, the security online today means that your details and funds are 99.9% of the time perfectly secure.
