Online Casino Payment Methods

Some casinos do let players try their games, which means there is no need to deposit anything to try the site. However, if you're eager to play real casino games online today, you're going to need to fund your account with some cash. There are multiple ways you can do this, and most casinos do have a range of methods for you to choose from.

Credit and debit cards

Some countries do not allow deposits via credit card, like the UK, for example. However, many countries still do allow this. In many cases, debit cards are fine too - with Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, and other cards such as Amex available.

Prepaid cards

Paysafecard is likely the best-known of these. The idea is that you can buy a card from a real outlet and then use it online to pay for goods or services. Many casinos do welcome paysafecard and similar prepaid methods for account funding. You may find you cannot use them for withdrawals though.


These are becoming more popular at online casinos thanks to their security and anonymity. You'll find there are casinos based around only these currencies too, offering a range of possibilities including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Tether, Litecoin, and Dogecoin among others.

That said, many casinos that have been around for a while have also added one or more virtual currencies to their banking collection.


This term refers to any online banking service you can use to deposit funds in your account. This might mean PayPal, Neteller, Skrill, and so on. In some cases, these wallets are funded by your bank account or a card, so it gives you another way to securely deposit at your favorite casino.

Other methods

The 'other' category can be non-existent at some casinos and heavily populated at

others. For example, you may be able to make a direct bank transfer. Some even allow a check, although this is more common for withdrawals rather than deposits. Even then, it's a method that is fast falling out of use at most online casinos.

The best way to find out how many methods you can use at any casino is to visit their banking or cashier page. If you cannot find one, head for their FAQ section to see whether you can find out how many payment methods you can choose from.
