There is a range of friendly banking methods for international players to deposit cash to play online roulette. A wealth of safe and secure deposit options are available for real money players keen on playing interactive roulette at any of our top recommended casino websites. Here we list the most popular methods of funding online roulette play and how to go about doing so.
Roulette casino sites
All the listed banking options and casino websites below protect our personal and financial information via digital encryption technology – the same technology used by international banks. Along with frequent audits by both banking and gambling industry watchdogs, players can rest at ease their money and personal details are protected to the nth degree.
Note: This page is intended for our international readers only residing in countries where online roulette is legally permitted. In Australia, online casinos are banned as of September 2017 following the introduction of the Interactive Gambling Amendment Bill 2016.
Playing roulette with debit and credit cards
By far the most popular and common means of depositing money in to an online casino account is via a credit or debit card. Funds show up in your account instantly and are available to use right away, and the two most popular cards, Visa and MasterCard, are accepted at every one of our recommend gambling sites.
Aside from Visa and MasterCard, other debit an credit cards frequently supported include Postepay, Visa Electron, Maestro, JCB, Switch, Solo and Delta. Credit and debit cards allows consumers to make convenient, quick and secure online payments, and are our recommended means of funding your account to enjoy real money roulette.
Head to the banking section of your casino, choose to deposit money via credit or debit card, input your card details and desired deposit amount, and hit confirm. This process will register your card, and so long as the card and financial transaction is approved, you’ll be able to use your funds immediately.
Withdrawing money back to your card can take between 24-72 hours, but with the development of better technology, most online casinos are now abel to process withdrawals after one working day. Only your registered card can be chosen as your preferred payment method.
Web-wallet casino deposits
Web-wallets, also known as e-wallets, offer an added layer of security between where your money comes from and where it is intended on going. Neteller, Skrill (Moneybookers), ecoPayz and ClickandBuy are four popular e-wallets used to finance online roulette play.
In order to utilise an e-wallet, you’ll first need to register an account with any of the above Web-wallets (sign up details such as e-mail, name, password, date of birth are required), then fund the account with your money via a bank transfer, credit or debit card. Once you have money in your online wallet, you can head to your chosen casino and its banking section, access the appropriate Web-wallet deposit option, and safely transfer money from your newly-created Web-wallet to your online casino account using only your e-mail address. Once the e-mail has been address has been confirmed, funds will be available for use immediately.
Players can also withdraw money from their casino accounts directly back to their e-wallet account, using the same e-mail address. The e-wallet acts as a secure middle-man in the financial transactions process, so instead of sending funds to and from your bank account direct to and from your online casino account, you have an extra level of protection with these regulated and highly-regarded Web-wallets.
Online payment systems
The great news is there’s a fabulous alternative – POLi. POLi is an online payment service available exclusively for New Zealanders. POLi is even easier to use than PayPal, as it requires no sign ups or additional work. Payments are simply processed directly via your usual Internet banking site, just as though you were transferring funds between your account or paying a bill online. When you select POLi, all you need to do is click to select your bank and you’ll be redirected to your standard online banking screen where you can logon and follow the prompts to complete your deposit. All transactions are protected using the high digital security systems employed by your financial institution, making it a very safe deposit option. POLi funds are transferred instantly, so you can start playing roulette for real money right away.
Pre-paid vouchers and cards online deposits
Most pre-paid vouchers and cards can only be used for depositing money in to your online casino account, but many people prefer this option because you do not need to use any personal details. Although, recently it’s become more common for online casinos to offer withdrawals using Paysafecard, although these come with low limits.
Paysafecard (which now incorporates the UKash brand) is the major pre-paid card/voucher which is supported at our endorsed online casinos, and they can be purchased at any retail shop, such as your local news agency or petrol station. Simply exchange cash for the card/voucher, and on the card or voucher will be a code which you can plug in within the online casino banking section, and the amount of cash you exchanged will show up instantly in your account. The card/voucher is now disposable – there’s no link back to your identity and no way to access your personal information.
One pre-paid card which is not disposable and can be used for both deposits and withdrawals is the EntroPay Virtual Visa Card – available to anyone worldwide. The EntroPay Card operates like a normal Visa when making online purchases or online transfers, but does not need to be tied to a bank account (unless you wish to do so). Load a certain amount of money on the card, transfer it to your casino account, and then withdraw money back to the card, which can later be accessed via an ATM machine or transferred to a bank account if you wish to link one to the card.
Direct bank transfers to and from casino accounts
You can always deposit funds in to your casino account directly from your online bank account, using method such as BPAY, POLi, Citadel Direct, or simple BSB/account number wire transfers. While this method is simple and secure, transactions can sometimes take between 24-72 working hours, depending on how fast your bank processes the request. Wire transfers direct from your bank are protected with highest of security encryption, so players have that extra sense of safety when utilising such methods.
As always, check with your financial institution to confirm the maximum amount of cash you can transfer (high rollers often use direct wire transfers because the maximum limit tends to be quite high). Also check to confirm whether the casino allows withdrawals back to your bank account direct via wire transfers.
