Playing your favorite casino games online can be just as enjoyable as visiting your local (or not so local) brick and mortar casino. You know, minus the travel time, parking, fighting the crowd, the stale smoke smell, and the lines to cash out. Okay, so in most ways, playing online is a whole lot better than the casino. The only issue people run into is how to get money into their account. Well, most internet casinos have tackled this problem head-on and make it exceedingly easy to manage your account online.
If you are outside of the United States, then there are generally few issues with funding your account. Take for instance the world’s largest online casino, PartyCasino. They have about 20 different ways that players may add real money to their account without fees and your funds are available instantly with nearly all of them.
Often the simplest way to deposit is to use a credit card. Most reputable online casinos will accept funds from Visa and Mastercard. If you do not have a credit card or want an alternative, there are plenty available. PayPal is one such option throughout much of Europe, as well as Neteller, Moneybookers and InstaDebit. There are a number of other eWallets available, such as UseMyBank, Click2Pay and Ukash. You can also use Western Union on many sites.
Among the best options for European players are bank transfers. There are several options here as well, depending on your location and the bank that you use. You can wire money into your casino account if it is a large amount, otherwise, most sites offer an instant bank transfer option. This pulls money directly from your bank account to fund your online casino account. These transactions are very secure, often more so than making regular purchases on the internet.
If you are in the United States and have the itch to play some Craps or watch the Roulette wheel spin ‘round, your options are more limited. Fortunately though, there are usually still enough deposit methods available to make playing online possible within only a matter of minutes.
Large, reputable online casinos such as Rome Casino offer a number of different options for Americans. Most online casino still recommend Visa as the top choice for US depositors. However, this is becoming increasingly difficult in light of recent bank rules restricting online gaming transactions. Many sites still do not have a problem though and process credit card transactions from US players all day long.
There are a few e-wallet options available for US players. UseMyWallet is one such site that allows Americans and is a deposit option at many online casinos. If you do not already have a UseMyWallet account you may need to be invited. This is done simply enough, usually by emailing or calling the casino’s customer service. eWalletXpress is another option for US players.
Keep in mind when using e-wallets that the fees can be quite high. With this in mind it is wise to make just a few large deposits and withdrawals rather than several small transactions. This is because there is usually a max fee, which might be met by one large transfer while many small ones will just be charged the full rate each time.
Some large casinos will offer other deposit methods for US players as well. Bank transfers can be an option, as well as money transfer services such as MoneyGram or Western Union.
With all of these options available, it is likely that just about everyone can find a site and a deposit method to meet their needs. When in doubt, contact customer support. Reputable sites should have a phone number available or a live chat option and can guide you through the deposit process.
