Deposit Methods for Online Casinos

Depositing money into your online casino account can sometimes be a hassle here is a quick overview of four of the most common ways to add money to your player account at online casinos.

Credit Card: The best, most popular deposit method for Online Casinos and online gaming in general is to use a credit card of some kind. Almost all casinos accept Visa’s and Mastercard’s. Almost every adult has a credit card and using a credit card is very safe and secure. The best part about making a credit card deposit is how quickly it goes through at most casinos. Other deposit methods can leave you waiting several days before the money actually clears, credit card deposits have been known to go through nearly instantly, within an hour most of the time. The only down side to making a credit card deposit is the interest you will have to pay on the money if you do not tackle it immediately. If you are vigilant enough to pay off your card as soon as you make the deposit you should have no problems whatsoever. Very few casinos will take credit cards other than Visa’s and/or Mastercard’s so you may have to resort to another payment option if you do not have one of the two cards listed above.

Neteller: Neteller is one of the most popular online deposit method for casinos these days. Paypal is known as the leader with regards to online payments and online commerce in general, but they do not work with gaming companies. You can think of Neteller as “paypal for gaming sites”. Hundreds of individual gaming sites accept Neteller, it is safe to say more big time casinos accept Neteller as a payment method than fail to accept Neteller. Neteller has been around since 1999 and they have a great reputation, they are actually listed on the London Stock Exchange so you have nothing to worry about as far as security and safety goes. Many online casino sites even offer you an extra 10-20% deposit bonus if you use Neteller as your primary payment method which is one more reason to use Neteller the next time you need to make a deposit at an online casino.

Click2Pay: Another great deposit method for online casinos is Click2Pay. They are an online option and Click2Pay is accepted at almost every major online casino. It is free to create an account and it is very easy to fun your Click2Pay account. Unfortunately Click2Pay does not appear to be open to new US players, but everyone else can take advantage of this excellent online casino deposit option. Click2Pay, despite being a trustworthy payment option, should not be used over a credit card deposit in my opinion. Credit card deposits are just as safe and reliable while being easier and more streamlined. In the end it all comes down to what you are looking for. One reason to use Click2Pay over any other online payment option is if you are getting a special bonus from your casino for using Click2Pay which has been known to happen.

Moneybookers: The last deposit method for online casinos to make the cut is Moneybookers. Moneybookers has been around since 1999 and they rival Paypal as one of the biggest, best known online e-wallet solutions in the world. Moneybookers does not deal exclusively in online gaming but it is an important aspect to their business. Almost every major casino accepts Moneybookers and almost everyone outside of the US can create an account and take full advantage of Moneybooker’s features. Unfortunately Moneybookers has turned away players from the United States since October of 2006 and they do not appear to be backing off of that decision. Moneybookers, just like almost every other online payment method has its fair share of horror stories but being in business for over a decade you are sure to offend someone along the way. Moneybookers is not the best deposit method for online casinos in the world but you could do worse.
