Blackjack Payment Methods

on August 8, 2012

Chances are if you’re playing blackjack online, you’re playing at an online casino. Unlike poker, there are very few exclusive blackjack rooms since it has always been played in a casino setting. One of the benefits of this is that you can play any casino game you can easily switch between games when you feel you need a break or you can even play a mini game while you’re playing your main blackjack game. But one of the other advantages is that as soon as you open an account at a casino, you can start playing blackjack without worrying about having a separate account, which may be the case with the games. This also means that you have a lot of payment options available for playing blackjack.

Depositing Money
Whichever casino you want to play at should have a list of their available payment options. Usually these include the traditional methods like bank transfer, but more often than none, the most popular methods are debit cards (VISA, Maestro), credit cards (VISA, MasterCard), electronic or digital wallets (PayPal, Neteller, Ukash…) and pre-paid cards. These tend to be more prevalent because there are little to no fees involved and deposits are made instantly so that as soon as you enter your details you can begin playing blackjack immediately. Casinos will also offer local payment methods for specific countries so make sure to select your country when you look at their options.

Withdrawing Money
Options tend to be a bit more limited when it comes to cashing out winnings, although there are still usually quite a few methods available including credit cards like VISA, e-wallets like Moneybookers, and a bank transfer. A cheque is also an option but it can take as long as 2-3 weeks for it to be processed and received so it’s better to choose a faster method like an e-wallet which can return winnings in as little as 24 hours. However it should be noted that most casinos have specific processing times including a 1-2 day holding period in case you change your mind about withdrawing your winnings.
