These days all online casinos offer a range of payment options: Moneybookers, Paysafecard and NETeller. Only a select few reputable online casinos such as 32Red and William Hill offer Paypal too.
Moneybookers is an excellent alternative to Paypal especially since Paypal is only offered by a few online casinos. It is registered in the UK with the financial services authority and so it is a trusted and reliable online financial service.
A player using NETeller will be able to transfer funds to an online sportsbook from their bank or a credit card. Funds transferred using their Instacash option are instant as the name would suggest but electronic transfers from your bank account to your NETeller account can take 2-3 days. It’s more safe and secure than simply using your credit card because you do not share details with every company each time you use your card – you’re only sharing details with NETeller and this is a one off. Withdrawing money is also easy to do and no fees are incurred. Established in 1999 NETeller is a reliable company which handles transactions efficiently.
The PaySafeCard is a highly convenient and safe online pre-paid card. It is becoming increasingly popular and it can now be used at over 2000 online locations in Europe. One great advantage of this card is that use of a credit card is not necessary. For some reason the Paysafecard has proved to be the preferred method of making a deposit for online poker players; perhaps because it is so safe and secure.
Over the past 12 years Paypal has quickly evolved into an internationally trusted, well-known and secure online banking facility. It is certainly very convenient when you are able to use your Paypal account straightaway to transfer funds across the online gaming site without having to rely on often expensive and time consuming bank transfers or credit cards. A good casino for using Paypal is William Hill.
