Advice on choosing a banking method

Foremost in your mind when making any kind of financial transaction online should be the protection of your banking and credit card details. Playing at a casino is no different, so we advise players to try to minimise the use of their credit card or banking details across different casinos. The easiest way to do this is to open an e-wallet account with a company that acts as an intermediary when you deposit and withdraw from a casino. You supply your credit card or bank details to them once then you never have to give this information to a casino. The options open to players varies with the country you live in, but we have some general advice for U.S. and non-American players below.

Non-U.S. based players

With the above considerations in mind, we recommend opening an e-wallet account with a service that gives you a choice of using it at the casinos that you like to play at. Two of the most popular and convenient ones are Neteller and Skrill (formerly known as Moneybookers), and some casinos in regulated jurisdictions are now accepting well known options such as Paypal. The benefits of an e-wallet are several. Deposits from the e-wallet to a casino are instantaneous, and withdrawals can be processed in the shortest time possible as once approved by the casino it is a totally electronic process. The e-wallets themselves often have a wide variety of methods to fund the account, more in fact than the casino. As mentioned, you only ever need to supply your bank account or credit card details to one place rather than every different casino that you decide to play at. Lastly, some e-wallets such as Neteller and Skrill offer their own debit cards that allow you to withdraw directly from your e-wallet account at ATMs around the world, which can be mighty convenient.

Players from the United States

Due to the vague and not very well understood UIGEA law, payment processors and credit card companies have taken a safety first approach which means no gambling-related transactions for U.S. customers. As a result the vast majority of banking methods will not in fact work for U.S. based players. Casinos servicing players from the USA typically offer a mix of debit cards and e-wallets specialising in U.S. customers for deposits, with the casino paying withdrawals via check, wire, or money transfer services like Western Union.

Our recommendation is to familiarise yourself with electronic peer-to-peer currencies, with the most popular by far being Bitcoin. Otherwise you can try to make use of prepaid debit cards for your deposits. This can be a process of trial and error as some will work and some won't, and the ones that do and don't work can change over time. We cannot stress enough that U.S. based players should avoid e-wallets for the time being due to the long hold periods on withdrawals and the risk to your funds from seizures or disappearances, like we have seen in the past with services such as QuickTender, eWalletXpress, and MyPayLinq. If your casino won't pay withdrawals directly to you via Bitcoin, a check, wire, or money transfer, and instead insists on using some new and unheard of e-wallet, find another casino.
