After registering with the online casino banking systems, players have two options: they can play for fun through the practical mode of the site or play for real money. There is no doubt that the latter option is the most demanded of the two, simply because of the fun, the challenge and, obviously, the rewards. However, to play for real money, players need to deposit money into their online casino accounts.

Good online casinos offer their clients several ways to finance their accounts. Not all payment methods are suitable for all players, and a reputable website will provide some methods for selecting and selecting customers based on their lifestyle in gambling, their geographical location and legislation governing how they can or can not pay. For example, Neteller was the most popular payment option for players from North America until the law on illegal acts on online gambling (UIGEA) was adopted in 2006. Almost overnight, American players were not allowed to pay for gambling through Neteller, and it remains true today.

There are many different methods of payment, although the most common are credit and debit cards, bank transfers, Moneybookers, Click2Pay, EntroPay, NETeller, and EcoCard.

Paying for online gambling on credit or debit cards is probably one of the easiest ways to get around everything, although in recent years it has not been a method of choice by many players in the US. First, many players are concerned about privacy and security issues related to transactions with credit cards over the Internet. Also, it is increasingly difficult for US players to enter into transactions permitted by their banks because of UIGEA. However, replenishment of funds using a credit or debit card in other parts of the world is still acceptable.

Another method of payment, which quickly becomes the most popular of all, is via the Internet in the form of a purse. Click2Pay, Moneybookers, and NETeller are just a few examples of this payment method. Simply put, players make deposits in a virtual electronic wallet on the Internet, and from there they can finance their online gambling. Their credentials can also be used to withdraw funds. The main advantages of payment for wallet include confidentiality and confidentiality. Entropay is another example of a virtual payment method and is accepted almost everywhere where a Visa card is installed. As in many of these types of services, the player's personal and financial data are not disclosed to the online merchant. It should be reiterated that some of these types of virtual payment methods, such as EcoCard and NETeller, cannot be used by US players to pay for their online gambling.

Another way to finance online casinos is by bank transfer. Standard bank transfer takes a few days to clear it, and immediate wire transfer is allowed by the player's bank and allows instant financing. Once a player makes an instant bank transfer, he or she must contact the online casino to provide information about the transaction before they can play on the site.

So, how do you deposit an online casino? After the player is ready to play for real money, the next step will be to go to the bank's website or the cashier's site and choose the payment method to replenish the account. Once the transaction is completed and the transfer of funds is allowed, the online casino account will indicate how much money was credited to the account. In many cases, players can choose which currency they want to play, for example, US dollars, euros or British pounds. Players can now switch to serious gambling on the online casino site. Their account will show the amount of money, as well as any winnings that will be credited to their account. Players must check how the funds can eventually be withdrawn before making the first deposit.

Many online casinos want to encourage players to use one deposit method over another, and they will reward their customers for what is called a bonus for an alternative deposit method. In fact, it is a gift of a certain percentage of credits (usually 10-20%) to the player's account, for example, using EcoCard, Click2Pay or Moneybookers.
