Online casino players have a multitude of choices when signing up to a new site. There’s the range of games to consider, the licensing and of course the customer support. But one thing that also needs to be taken into consideration is how to make deposits and withdrawals. After all, if you get lucky and make a big win, you want the process to be smooth, fast and safe.

All good online casinos will provide a range of payment options, and this is one of the things that you need to check out before deciding to sign up. Information should be readily available on what payment methods are offered, and if this is not immediately clear, you should look elsewhere. After you have chosen your casino, it’s time to decide what payment option you prefer.

Credit or Debit Cards

Most casinos will accept Visa and MasterCard on their site. Look out for the secure transfer icon when making your first deposit. Remember that you will probably be withdrawing funds to the same card, so don’t borrow anyone else’s or they will be getting your winnings too. Card transfers sometimes take a little longer and may be subject to charges.


The most famous e-wallet is probably PayPal, but others have come on the market that may be better. Skrill requires only an email to sign up, can be linked directly to your bank account, and has fewer charges. Other e-wallets such as Neteller are also available.

Bank Transfer

You can, of course, make payments directly from your bank, and withdraw there too. Some people prefer not to do this for security reasons, and there may be a long wait to claim your winnings.

In the end, your choice of payment depends on what you feel comfortable with. It is also worth checking the terms and conditions of the casino, as sometimes deposit bonuses are not available with certain payment methods.
