Visiting a casino for the first time find out which payment options are available. You can find this information on the "Banking" page of the casino's site.
First of all, make sure you are allowed to make real money deposits. Citizens from some countries may be excluded at the casino.
Usually there are a number of methods by which you can purchase chips at online casinos. First of all, let's look at traditional payment methods like:
- Personal and Certified Checks
- Western Union
- Bank or Wire Transfers
Casinos usually display they address/banking information on they sites. Each of the listed methods i's a good way to make money transactions, but you can start playing only when they receive your check.
As for credit cards, they are commonly accepted by nearly every online casino. But not for North American residents. Sometimes, they credit card purchase will be rejected because of a regulation at American credit card companies avoiding to accept the high-risk transactions for gambling purposes.
If this case, you can choose between many e-cash systems which allow to make fast and secure money transactions via Internet. E-cash companies have incredible advantages to traditional methods of payment. They offer:
- Instant payment
- Low cost fees for withdrawing money to your bank
- Easy and safe way to make your payments online, as there is no need to provide your credit card (banking) information for every transaction you make.
- Many casinos offer a special bonus if you make a deposit by one of these methods.
For example, you can use your card to open an account at either Neteller or FirePay. Both are mandatory for any well established casino.
