    When you sign on to play online at your favorite online casino it’s usually a pretty relaxing and easy going experience from start to finish if you are playing at an online casino that’s worth your business.
    When it comes to funding your account there can be quite a few ways you can use to add money and to withdraw your winnings if you were lucky at the tables or the slot games.
    Depending on where you are in the world there may be more or less deposit and withdrawing methods in your cashier; especially if you are playing from the USA.
    Here I will talk about the most common funding methods to deposit.

    Credit Cards

    Credit cards are the most convenient way to deposit into your casino account. The transactions usually take just minutes to complete and before you know it you will be in the games spinning,
    or at the tables. Most online casinos accept every credit card out there but Visa and Mastercard are the most popular. Discover,
    Amex and other credit cards can be used also so just check the cashier to make sure they are accepted where you are playing.

    The transactions with credit cards are very secure, especially at reputable casinos. After funding with a credit card don’t be alarmed if the casino asks you to send in verification documents,
    this is very common practice. This is usually to ensure the players safety regarding identity and should only have to be done once at most casinos.

    Pre-paid Cards

    Just like credit cards a pre-paid card can be used to fund the account and is much safer for most players as it’s usually not able to be over-drafted and can help players manage their gaming budget.
    While it is a bit less convenient for players to have to fund the pre-paid prior to funding their account, this ensures that the players most confidential financial information is protected.
    You can find a list of pre-paid cards that are accepted by visiting the cashier page of the casino or by asking customer support.


    There used to be a lot more e-wallets online than there are today but the most sturdy of e-wallets are still available. Moneybookers or Skrill, Neteller and Paypal
    are accepted at most online casinos and take only a few seconds to use when funding your account. Players should note that these methods are not available in the USA.

    E-wallets are not only for internet gambling so even if you have a Moneybookers account and in the USA you can still use it for online shopping and other expenses,
    just not for online gaming. For a full list of merchants that take your e-wallet just check their web-site.

    It’s also important to note that you should be careful which e-wallet you sign up for. Just like shady casinos there are shady web wallets that take advantage of unsuspecting players.
    Do your research before funding any new or unrecognized e-wallet.


    Lastly, there are ways to fund your account using your checking account or savings account. This method usually takes a bit longer and is more inconvenient than using a credit or debit card.
    The way it works is just like paying a bill online using a blank check. Simply fill out all relevant information and once the check clears your bank your casino account will be credited.

    These are just a few ways to fund and the most popular ways players use to deposit into online casinos. As previously mentioned there are more ways becoming available
    almost daily so check your cashier or with support at the online casino you choose to patronize for a full list of funding methods.
