Just a few years ago, playing at online casinos was extremely difficult. Why? The online casino payment methods that were on offer were extremely limited. This was mainly due to the actual payment providers and not the actual casinos. The payment providers did not have the security settings in place to facilitate these transactions. This meant that if they did allow these payments to be processed, players would be at risk. Nowadays, this has changed considerably.
Log onto any online casino and you will have a range of online casino payment methods to choose from. Basically, any kind of payment account that you have can now be used. Of course, the popular payment methods are still American Express, Visa, Electron and Maestro. That being said, e-wallets are now becoming much more popular online casino payment methods. Why? Simply because they are much more convenient; you won’t even need to get your card details out!
The most popular e-wallets include the likes of Moneybookers, Neteller and ClickandBuy.
Recently though, some casinos have started accepting PayPal as a payment method. This is still in the early stages. Only the major casinos such as 888.com and William Hill are currently accepting this as a payment method. As time goes by and people become accustomed to paying using PayPal, it is likely that it will become one of the standard online casino payment methods, such as Visa and MasterCard are right now.
The question most people ask is; which one is the best? There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to which of the payment methods is really the best. It is really down to personal preference. Some people prefer online casino payment methods that are e-wallets, where as some people are still finding it hard to believe that these are as secure as using MasterCard or even Visa.
