What payment methods can I use at online casinos?
It can be exhilarating to win a large payout on online casino games such as slots or roulette, especially when it comes to withdrawing your winnings. But the money isn’t yours until it is withdrawn or exchanged as further online playing credit.
Withdrawing money from your online casino account to your personal financial account should be a simple and pain-free process, but taking the time to set up and research payment processing details can save you from hassle in the future.
Online casinos will accept most debit and credit cards as deposit or withdrawal methods. You can also set up PayPal, other online money transfer accounts such as Skrill, ecoPayz, or Neteller, prepaid cards such as Paysafecard, or direct deposit from your bank account. While some online casinos may appear trustworthy, it is still important to prioritise your safety and the security of your money. Never give out your bank, credit or debit card information to sites that you find suspicious. First check that your gaming service provider is recognised by other large regulatory bodies, and that they are adhering to the general terms required by places like the UK Gambling Commission.
Always check with your chosen gaming company to see which payment providers they accept and if there are any surcharges for using a specific payment method. It’s a good idea to note that Paypal charges fees on payments into your account if those payments are classified as ‘payment for goods or services’. While it is unlikely your chosen online casino will choose this option to pay you via Paypal, ensure that you read all the relevant terms and conditions for payments to avoid losing any of your winnings. It is also useful to read the terms and outline of fees for your payment provider or bank, as these will give you details on support you can access should you have any issues with receiving payment or differing currency.
Also, if your home currency is different to the casino’s, you may incur charges from your bank or card provider, and at many online casinos you may need to provide ID verification in order to withdraw your winnings.View all FAQs
