The first thing to remember about payment methods as they apply to
sending and receiving money to online casinos is that they can be different
depending upon what country you live in. Let’s look at some of
the many different ways you can send and receive money.
Visa and MasterCard
Even though credit cards are not as popular as they once were, Visa
and MasterCard still dominate the way that most people pay for things
online. Credit cards are not always accepted at online casinos but they
are still the way that most people want to make deposits.
These can be used to transfer money from your bank to the online site.
These are not nearly as popular or effective as they used to be. Many
online gamblers don’t want their bank involved in transferring
money to an online casino site. A bank draft is a better option although
it takes longer because you are mailing it to the online site.
Many people like to use an eCheck to make a deposit as it is similar
to using a check except that it is a virtual check. This method doesn’t
always work in the U.S. and again, it involves your bank.
One of the best ways to send or receive money is to use an eWallet.
This is where you put money into an account like Neteller, Moneybookers,
Ecocard, etc. and then use that account to transfer money.
If you want to get cash somewhere quick then you can choose a Western
Union or a MoneyGram.
