Before you can properly enjoy your gambling journey, you need to make a deposit on your casino account – and later on, you’ll definitely want to withdraw money too.
Fortunately, online casino payments work easily and even if you’re a complete stranger to the gambling business, you can make payments without thinking much.
No matter the casino you’ve chosen, the deposit procedure is roughly the following:
- Log in to your gambling account and open the wallet section. That’s usually easily visible somewhere on your account’s settings.
- Enter the desired deposit amount and choose a suitable payment method.
- Confirm the payment at your payment method’s provider (like you would when making payments at online shops).
- Once you return to your gambling account, the deposit awaits for you already.
Most online casinos nowadays use debit/credit card payments or electronic wallets, such as Neteller and Skrill which are most widely used. European casinos also use Trustly as the payment processor as a way to connect gamblers to online banks. And of course, you can always make regular bank transfers but since those take much longer to arrive, you’re usually better off using a credit card or electronic wallet.
In every way, online casino payments are exactly the same as online shop payments. The only thing you need to keep in mind is that every casino has different payment limits. For instance, some casinos allow a minimum of £20 as a deposit, some allow even £5. The limit might also differ according to the deposit method chosen.
Withdrawals are a little more complex though. First, keep in mind that you can only withdraw money to the exact same payment method you used for the deposit too. This is part of the general anti-money-laundering policy in the world. And of course, you can only withdraw money in your own name, no one else’s.
Withdrawals can take a bit longer than deposits. Even if the casino uses “instant” payment methods, the withdrawal request is processed and confirmed by the casino’s staff which adds some time to the whole process. In the case of larger withdrawal requests, you might need to verify your identity too before you can receive the funds – you might have to make a selfie, plus upload your identifying document.
As long as you play at safe casinos, you needn’t worry about your money. All licensed online casinos have stellar payment methods that are easily usable for any gambler.
