When it comes to banking methods for UK players, the options are helpful and diverse. It’s one of the great things about being in the UK and being able to enjoy online casino games – not only is there choice in what you can play, but there’s also choice when it comes to banking. And let’s face it, without banking, there is no fun to be had. Options range between credit and debit cards and e-wallets, web wallets, online payment mechanisms and vouchers and direct bank transfers. In fact, it’s almost safe to say that your options to pay and get paid are almost as diverse as the choice of games from which you can choose!

We all know how credit cards and debit cards work – these are the most common mechanisms that we use to conduct our daily transactions; our daily lives in fact. The most important variation to be aware of is that web wallets, e-wallets, vouchers and direct bank transfers are different from the traditional card systems. They are however easy to understand and some even issue MasterCard approved cards so that you can withdraw your winnings from a normal ATM.
Web wallets and e-wallets are one in the same. Sometimes they’re referred to as virtual web wallets and at times online payment mechanisms. However, they all have similar functions and operate with similar, if not the same, principles. To put it in its most basic form, a web-wallet is an online account in which you can store money. It’s simply a case of opening one and then funding it using your bank card or bank account. Once you’ve funded it, you will then be able to move the funds from there into your online casino account and begin playing. E-wallets are most notable for their privacy and their widespread acceptance at many other websites that offer goods and services. Notable web wallets include Neteller, ecoPayz and skrill. All operate in similar ways and one, namely Neteller, is allowed to issue players with a MasterCard approved card that can be used online, at ATM’s and wherever MasterCard is accepted.
Vouchers have become quite a big online industry. A prime example would be PaySafeCard, a pre-paid voucher that can be purchased at various outlets around the country and then redeemed online for casino credits. All you need to do is enter the 16-pin voucher number and you’ll be able to play. Vouchers like PaySafeCard are notable for being effective tools when it comes to budgeting and setting aside fixed amounts of cash for your gambling entertainment. A direct bank transfer lets you access your bank account directly and move funds from there into your online casino account – it’s that simple!
