Online casinos have many different payment methods to choose from. Some charge fees, others are free and there are several options that give you anonymity.
Trustly payments are anonymous, quick and secure, which many people find appealing. You do not have to leave the casino page because you can log in directly with your bank ID. You do not need an account to use Trustly, no information is saved and everything is encrypted. The security level is the same as if you pay directly from your bank. Using a bank ID is secure as people who would like to have access to your money, must also get their hands on your bank ID and login details in order to withdraw money. Casinos which promise rapid deposits and payments often offer Trustly as a payment method. Examples include Speedy, Ninjacasino and Casino Heroes.
Bank transfer is a common payment method where you simply transfer money directly from your bank account to a gaming site. Here you will need to enter all necessary account information and your address. This is a method that can take a little longer than some other methods but works both for deposits and withdrawals. It is a method that is available as an option at most casinos online. A few examples are Mr. Green, Dunder and LeoVegas.
Visa / Mastercard
Visa and Mastercard are the most famous payment cards in the world. You simply pay directly with your card online. It is not possible to withdraw money to your card but can be used for deposits.
Zimpler is a payment method linked to your mobile phone, founded in 2013. It has about the same features as Swift. You do not create an account since it is solely linked to your mobile number. When you make a payment, you get a code by SMS. You can also use Zimpler to withdraw money into your bank account. Initially, Zimpler could only be used in Sweden and Finland and went through your mobile subscription where the amount was added to your invoice, but now you can also link debit cards just like Swift, and the service is offered in several countries. Zimpler is available at Leovegas and Casino Heroes.
Neteller has become one of the most common payment methods for online casinos. It has been around since 1999 and is located in over 200 countries. Neteller is a kind of e-wallet that acts as an intermediary between you and a seller/buyer. To deposit money on your Neteller e-wallet, you can use a variety of different methods. The big advantage is that third parties never get access to your bank details without everything remaining at Neteller. Neteller has some fees that vary depending on chosen deposit and withdraw method. An advantage of Neteller is that the money is usually available directly. Neteller is governed by British FCA, a financial supervisory body that operates independently from the UK government. Many casinos offer Neteller like Goliath, Voodoo Dreams, Leovegas and Dunder.
Skrill is a free e-wallet that sends and receives money very quickly. You create an account at Skrill and use your email to send and receive money. The advantage is as with other e-wallets, that you do not provide bank or card information to third parties. Skrill is available at Royal Panda, Dunder and Casumo.
Paypal is an e-wallet that has been around for a while. The payment method is easy to use and you use your email as login to your Paypal account. You give your card details to Paypal, but they never pass them on to any third party. Paypal can be used at, for example, at Mr. Green and 888 Casino.
Paysafecard is a prepaid debit card that makes your transactions anonymous and you do not need to provide your card information to third parties. You can only deposit but never withdraw money with this method. You can use Paysafecard at Royal Panda and 14 Red.
U Kash is a kind of a prepaid card for online payments. You have a unique code associated with your card. The advantage of U Kash is that you never have to leave your own card details to a third party and can therefore remain anonymous. It is a method used for deposits but not withdrawals. You can use U Kash at, for example, Royal Panda.
Bitcoin is a digital currency that is not centralized. It is a kind of digital coin that users can send to each other without intermediaries. Since it is not a currency with a governing central bank, it has several advantages like low payment charges and anonymous transactions and it’s part of a transparent network where users can see all transactions. Bitcoin can be used in 14 Red and Bitstars.
