The best deposit methods for online casinos

Best Online Casino Payment Methods

There are many different payment methods you can use to make a deposit or withdraw funds from your online casino betting accounts.  Most reputable online casino operators will offer a variety of methods for you to use, be careful for any extra fees, for example some operators charge a small fee for using a credit card.

Debit card is probably the most reliable method to use for online casino payments and withdrawals, this will come directly from your bank account so is less likely to fail.  Payments are usually instant, though when making a withdrawal this method can be one of the slower methods, typically taking a 1-2 days longer than online wallets.

Moneybookers (now known as Skrill) is a popular online wallet system, you can add funds to this from your bank account and then make payments.  This is similar to Paypal and is taken by pretty much all the online casinos we have tried, it is taken more often than Paypal as Skrill have aligned themselves more closely with the online gaming sector.  Skrill payments tend to be very quick and we have known the transfers to be almost instant.

Paypal is the tried and trusted online payments provider, most people have a Paypal account if they have done anything on eBay. The upside of Paypal is that it is a very large company and so you know your money is going to most likely be very secure.  the downside is that not all operators offer this option due to the fees the operator incurs, however this is changing recently and we have noticed more gaming companies offering this option due to customer demand.

Credit card is a method that you can use to put money in your gaming account, however there has been some legislation to try to limit this sort of activity to try and curb irresponsible gambling, for example running up debts.  Therefore you may find yourself having to go through a few verification processes which may hold up the deposit/withdrawal processes and in general we do not recommend this method as it can cause more delays than it's worth.

Neteller is another online wallet provider, in the same vein as Paypal and Skrill.  We have used this account without any trouble and most online casino operators offer this method of payment and withdrawal.

Wire/Bank transfer is a final option, this is usually offered for larger payment amounts and can take 7-10 days for a withdrawal to be processed by the bank and casino company.

We mainly recommend that if you are planning to play at online casinos then you should definitely get one or two online wallet accounts such as Paypal and Skrill and put some funds into these from your bank account.  This way you are not giving your card details to lots of different companies and will benefit from the very fast transfer times of these accounts compared to traditional banks.

The advantages of gambling on Live Casino

Advantages of live casino dealers

More and more online casinos are now offering a 'Live Casino' option for their customers.  This development has come about as people got bored of stale and lonely computer-type games - people are now demanding a more real-life casino feel and the Live Casino provides exactly this.

The Live dealers are usually attractive young ladies and the whole setup gives the user the feeling that they are actually in a real-life casino room.  The dealer can talk to the players and the players can talk back using a chat box type facility, giving good interaction between player and dealer and enabling a sense of real-life involvement for the online casino player.

There are also many advantages to the player in terms of trust.  In a 'computer game' casino scenario, there is always the chance that the game could be rigged and that the player can have little chance of winning in the long-term.  With live dealers, all the same rules as a standard casino apply.  You can see the cards being loaded into the machine, the dealer has to regularly change decks and burn cards and there is overall a feeling that these games are fairer to the players than the computer game rooms.  I have certainly been a lot more successful playing the 'live' games in terms of winning, especially on Blackjack using this Stan James Promo Code.

When chatting to the live dealers, I found that a lot of these live dealers in the European casinos are from Latvia.  It seems that a lot of the bookmakers and online casinos in Europe are sharing the same 'Live dealers' provider, so whether you go through Coral, Betfred or a few others, you can end up in the same live rooms with the same dealers.  This is not a problem as I have always found these rooms very professional and fair.

The games available are typically Live Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and Poker, with a wide selection of rooms and dealers to match your staking requirements and tastes.  One company I particularly recommend is Coral, who offer a £10 free bonus for all new casino players, with no deposit required. Why not try out this Coral Free Bet to help get you started, this can be used in the Live Dealer rooms and will give you a flavour of what it is like.

One thing I do like in the live casino rooms is that you can also tip the dealer, so if you have a good win or have a nice chat with one of the dealers then you can reward them with a nice tip.  This is a nice touch and adds to the personal feel of the live rooms compared with traditional online casinos.

I feel that the future of online casinos will be in these live rooms, customers are wanting more and more real-life interaction online, the days of playing against a computer will soon be gone.  Maybe players will soon be able to see each other on webcams and socialise while playing the games?  We now live in the facebook and Twitter-era, so who knows where the future of online casino will go, but whatever happens it certainly will be more interactive.
