Gambling with Prepaid Payment Options

Gambling with Prepaid Payment

Modern online casinos have to offer their players a diverse selection of deposit options in order to stay competitive. Prepaid payments have become increasingly popular. Nowadays, they are easy to obtain almost everywhere.

Prepaid Payment Options

When it comes to prepaid payments for gambling at online casinos, there are basically two different options.

  1. On the one hand, there are a wide variety of voucher cards that can be purchased online and at several land-based retailers. The most popular voucher card for online casinos is Paysafecard.
  2. With alternative options, you chose to play with a prepaid credit card that is preloaded with a certain amount of money, i.e. $,€ 25 ⁄ 50 ⁄ 100. This type of card is also widely available online and offline.

In brief: you have to obtain a prepaid credit card or voucher card. Vouchers like Paysafecard can be purchased in many supermarkets and gas stations. Also some online shops sell this type of voucher card.

NO verification

Many players value the anonymity of voucher cards. Most prepaid payment methods that are available in online casinos do not require any verification at all. Neither is it necessary to set up an account in the first place. However, there is a wide variety of options available, and some of them allow you to connect your voucher cards or prepaid credit card to an account.

Attention! If you are transferring large amounts of money over that payment account, you might be asked to verify your details at some point.

Limits at Prepaid Cards

Whether there are any deposit limits on the prepaid payment option depends on the type of deposit method.

Fees with Prepaid Cards

Prepaid credit cards have the same advantages in online casinos as regular cards. They benefit from extremely low transaction fees. Most sites don´t charge players at all for card payments.

In most cases, voucher cards can be used without any additional fees as well. If any fees are going to be deducted from your deposit this must be clearly indicated before you confirm the transaction.

How to deposit with prepaid cards

Most voucher cards have a numerical code on them that you can enter through the cashier section of an online casino. Your funds will be available right after you confirmed the transaction. You don´t have to use the entire value of your voucher card at once. Your ´unused´ money remains stored on your coupon for future payments c.q. deposits.

TIP! It is even possible to combine several voucher codes for a single payment.

Making a deposit with a prepaid credit card works exactly the same as it would with a regular credit card. You simply have to visit the cashier of the casino and choose the amount you would like to deposit. Pick credit cards as a payment method and enter your card details as normal. This includes the card number and the expiry date. You also have to enter your name and confirm the transaction with the CVC code that can be found at the back of the card within the signature strip.

How to withdraw to prepaid cards

This is an important step for any online casino player: withdrawing your winnings. So immediately this warning: withdrawing winnings to prepaid cards is anything but easy. In fact, we don´t recommend it! Why?

  1. Not all prepaid credit cards and voucher cards are exactly the same. For example, there is a possibility to send your winnings back to your Paysafecard voucher code. The problem however, is that you need to set up an account at the Paysafecard website first and the vast majority of online casinos do not support this service at all.
  2. The same is true for prepaid credit cards. Some of them allow you to set up an account that makes it possible to withdraw funds back to your prepaid card while most of them don´t offer this option at all.
  3. Even if there is an option to send your money back to your prepaid payment option, it is usually not a good choice as it comes with relatively high fees.

The better alternative for most prepaid cards is to request a withdrawal to your bank account via a wire transfer. You simply have to visit the cashier of the casino and select the corresponding withdrawal method. Then, you have to enter your banking details (your name, bank, IBAN, and BIC) and the withdrawal amount you would like to make to confirm the transaction.
