UK casinos - the best ways to pay

With laws and regulations changing fairly frequently for UK online casinos and their players, and sometimes changes have even included payment methods. At the beginning of this year, the UK government introduced legislation banning payments to casinos with credit cards in order to protect players from problem gambling, so for players who are looking for something else, what options are there for UK online casino games?


Finding your UK casino payment methods

We recommend that before you register with a site, that you check their payment methods or banking page. On this page, it will usually give you a list of available options for your deposits and withdrawals. Some payment methods will be good for deposits and not withdrawals, and vice versa, so be sure to check this before you decide on one to use.

Casinos are obliged by law in the UK by the UKGC (United Kingdom Gambling Commission) to pay out in a timely manner, so don’t be too worried about your payments taking a long time to come back out of the casino – barring a technical glitch, the casinos must give you your money back sooner rather than later.


Bank and card

Although credit cards are blocked for understandable reasons, players in the UK are still free to use their debit card or direct bank transfer when playing at a casino. Many casinos accept Mastercard or Visa debit cards, and you can also use prepaid cards such as Paysafe Card or Revolut. Bank transfer is also very simple, and requires you to make the transfer in your banking app or online just as if you were transferring money to any other account. In some casinos you may even top up your account using Apple Pay.

These are easy to pay into, as you would complete the topup of your casino wallet just like in any other online purchase. It’s easy, secure, and you don’t need to make any additional accounts in online wallets or otherwise.


eWallets

eWallets are a convenient way to make payments online which tend to take less time than using bank transfer or card. Generally it would involve creating an account and confirming your identity with an online eWallet provider. For UK players they may be most familiar with PayPal, but there are many others that are used such as Skrill or QIWI.

The benefits of eWallets are such that you have to wait less time for withdrawals and deposits, making life easier when you want to take your winnings out from the casino.


Bitcoin

Although bitcoin casinos are far less frequently found than others, players can still get their game on at them when they find one! The major benefits of bitcoin are that you don’t need to create any extra accounts, and there is no need to deal with currency conversion if you want to use a different one to your normal account. In addition to that, withdrawals and deposits are nearly instantaneous, so there is very little (if any!) waiting between requesting your withdrawal and receiving it into your account.
