Different payment options
To allow everyone to play faster and make more reliable deposits and withdrawals from each client, online gaming sites have implemented a wide range of payment methods. These methods are secure, guaranteed, these methods are designed to facilitate financial transactions taking place between players and game sites, in both directions.
All the casinos should accept this form of payment. Standard credit cards such as VISA and MasterCard are allowed everywhere. Other means of local payments like American Express or Maestro - which are nevertheless accepted in various institutions around the world, represent a reliable way to conduct financial transactions. However, if the site on which you play is not legal, using a credit card could be problematic: for buying credits or tokens because it's possible that credit card companies will refuse payment. This method is only reliable if you use it to make a purchase from a safe and secure merchant.
Electronic wallets are definitely the easiest way to make your payments online. An electronic wallet, commonly called "e-wallet" is actually an online bank account with which the client can perform any type of money transactions (withdrawal, deposit, transfer, history). There are many advantages to using this method rather than another because it is precisely adapted to expenses related to the game and it’s easy to see the state of your account, the costs and fees incurred and the part that's left to the player. Online casinos are working with almost all of the most famous electronic portfolios that are considered as reliable as real banking institutions. Companies like NETeller and Moneybookers have quickly made a name in the online gaming market.
Bank transfers are a fairly common option for the player to make a money transfer from his account to the online casino. It is probably the most secure payment solution but it's not without cost (management fees, VAT in most countries). So, it's not surprising that most online casinos offer only bank transfers as a means of withdrawing money.
This method is the most recent but it’s little used in comparison with the others. This is a form of bank transfer operating as an electronic check, or "e-check". This check is completed online and sent directly to the online casino in question. This method has the advantage of being the fastest of all. It is particularly popular with American and Canadian players and this form of payment is trying to become uniform in Europe. To make an eCheck, you just need to have a checking account and Internet access.
