Funding Your Casino Account—Making a Deposit
Depositing is quite simple. Our casinos offer as many as 31 ways to deposit in Canadian dollars. We prefer to play at casinos that offer banking options we are familiar with and comfortable using. Never make a deposit using a banking method you are unsure of always trust your instinct. Some of the more popular methods used by Canadians who play online are:
- Credit Cards or Debit Cards
- Pre-paid Cards
- Web Wallets
- Bank transfers
CREDIT AND DEBIT CARDS
The two most well-known credit cards, Visa and MasterCard, allow deposits as easily as making any other purchase online. These are line-of-credit cards so you can deposit large sums if that is your desire.
Debit cards allow you to regulate your gaming budget. The money you send to your casino account is immediately subtracted from your checking account. It is not a line-of-credit card.
These cards resemble debit cards in that the amount you can deposit is limited. Deposits with pre-paid cards also resemble electronic transfers; you put money into the card and then you electronically transfer it.
These are a type of clearing house where you “store” personal and financial information towards making online purchases. In this context, casino deposits are considered a purchase.
The most popular web wallets for Canadians are NETeller and Skrill.
ELECTRONIC FUNDS TRANSFER
This method is essentially an electronic personal check. Depositing with eCheck and other similar companies is like electronically sending any information. In this case, you show that your checking account has funds and you electronically send some to your casino account. Electronic transfers involve connection from your bank to the casino so the method is considered extremely safe.
