Online Casino Banking
Online casino banking is fairly straightforward today, uncomplicated and perfectly secure. All of today’s secure and fully licensed online casinos use state of the art Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology which protects player’s transactions, funds and personal details. When online casinos first appeared online, players could only add funds to their account using just Visa or MasterCard, but today there numerous different online casino banking methods available for players.
When you visit an online casino today, the best way to find out how you can add funds into your account is to visit the cashier section or the banking section. This section will provide you with a list of accepted deposit/withdrawal methods and you should be able to choose from numerous different popular methods. Many online gamblers today tend to prefer using e-wallets, which allow players to make deposits and withdrawals.
Some of the most popular e-wallets include ClickandBuy, NETELLER, PayPal, Instadebit, 1-Pay, Abaqoos, Skrill (formerly moneybookers), Click2Pay, WebMoney, eWalletXpress and Citadel, but there are numerous others now available.
Apart from credit and debit cards such as American Express (Amex), Visa, Visa debit, Visa Electron, Mastercard, Maestro, Switch, Solo, Laser and Diners Club, players can also send and receive money to and from their online casino account using checks/cheques, direct bank transfers, Western Union and Prepaid Cards such as PayPoint, EcoCard, Ukash, EziPay, paysafecard, Entropay and Ticket Premium.
Most of today’s deposit methods are instant, which means that as soon as you click to confirm the transaction, the funds should immediately appear in your account. Some of the slower methods, like checks/cheques, could take up to two weeks though. Deposits generally take up to 48hrs, but in some cases you can have your winnings within just a couple of hours. This will depend on which method you are using and at which casino you are playing at.
Remember that there is a minimum deposit amount at each of today’s online casinos, so you will need to check this amount prior to making your first deposit. This could be anywhere between $/€/$5.00 and $/€/£20.00.
