With 100 million active accounts in 190 markets, PayPal is regarded as a frontrunner in electronic wallet services around the world. PayPal is entirely free of charge, thereby making it a very popular choice as an online payment method, gambling deposits included! Note however that the service is limited to countries outside of Canada, Australia and the United States.
- PayPal accepted as a payment method
- Fully licensed online casino since 1998
- 400+ games, including live dealer tables
How it works
PayPal uses encryption software to facilitate financial transactions between computers. Therefore, anyone with a valid email address can use the service to:
- Purchase or sell online goods.
- Make or receive donations.
- Exchange cash with others.
Funds can be sent to any email address holder whether or not they have a PayPal account, but they can only access the funds through a PayPal account linked to that email address.
As you would with a pre-paid account, you first have to fund your PayPal account using a credit card or bank transfer. To regulate your spending and keep track of your winnings you can even open a separate PayPal account linked to the bank card used specifically for your online gambling activities.
How to set up a PayPal account
PayPal has made the process of creating a user account extremely easy. You can either go to their website or through or their mobile app, and register as follows:
- Click on the "Sign Up for Free" tab.
- Enter your email address and create a password.
- Submit your personal information as required.
- Provide your banking details for the account you wish to use for PayPal.
- Verify and activate your account by confirming your email address.
- Complete by linking your debit/credit card to PayPal.
How to use PayPal for your casino deposits
Whilst you are logged into the casino’s cashier page, look for the PayPal logo in the suggested payment methods. One clicking on the logo you will automatically be redirected to a page that will ask for your basic information and the required deposit amount. Upon confirming the payment, it will instantly be transferred to your casino account and the transaction will reflect in your PayPal account.
