Online Casino Banking Options

To get in on the action at online casinos you will need to deposit real money into your account. This guide covers the most popular casino banking options as well as issues relating to security.

Most Popular Deposit Options

Credit Cards

Credit card deposits are by far the most popular and all casinos we list accept VISA and Mastercard. Other cards that some casinos accept include Diners Club and JCB. VISA and Mastercard transactions are processed with either Verified by VISA or Mastercard Secure Code which give an extra layer of security.

Debit Cards

Debit cards are widely accepted with most casinos accepting deposits with Visa Debit, Visa Electron, Solo and Maestro cards.

E-Wallets

After credit and debit card e-wallets are the next most commonly used deposit options. E-wallets have become increasingly popular for all online transactions with the most well known being Pay Pal. Not all casinos accept Pay Pal but there are other alternatives. Widely accepted e-wallets include,

  • NETeller
  • Pay Pal
  • Skrill
  • Click2Pay

Other Deposit Options

Most casinos accept a range of other deposit options in addition to those listed above. For more details we suggest checking with the individual casinos or reading our reviews. Some alternatives include UKash vouchers, direct bank transfer or even cash (at some casinos with betting shops or UK based casinos).

Withdrawal Options

When it comes to withdrawing funds from your online casino account you have a range of options. In most cases the casinos will pay your withdrawal via the same method you used to deposit. If this is not possible then the casinos will pay via bank transfer or cheque. In terms of speed the e-wallets tend to offer the fastest possible payouts.

There are a small selection of online casinos that give you the options of depositing and withdrawing in cash. These casinos include Betfred and Ladbrokes where you can visit any of their betting shops to make transactions.

Security

All of the casinos that we list use 128-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Digital Encryption for all financial transactions. This is the same level of security used by major financial institutions and ensures that your details are secure.

If you use a credit or debit card to make deposits you may be required to send a copy of the front and back of the card to verify that you are the cardholder.

When sending these copies via e-mail your should block out at least four numbers of the card and the CVV number on the back. We recommend this as e-mail is not a secure way of sending sensitive information. The casino can still verify the cardholder with these numbers blocked out. An alternative to e-mail is fax which all online casinos will accept.
