Paying for Online Gambling the Alternative Way

From the moment you open your first online casino account, you will have to make a very important decision – how are you going to transfer money to that account so that you can play at the casino for real money?  One of the natural choices for most online gamblers is to pay via credit card.  This is done in a very similar way that you’d buy anything online with your Visa or Mastercard.  You simply punch in the numbers, go through a couple of security questions and you’re on your way to a super gambling session.

But what happens if you don’t have a credit card or you simply don’t want to pay online with your card for security reasons?  Are you destined to sit on the fence and watch everyone else having fun?  Naturally, the answer is no.  There are some great alternatives with which you can fund your account and still enjoy a high level of security, convenience and discretion.  These alternative banking methods are usually incredibly easy to use, and are becoming more and more popular with gamblers with each passing year. 

You could try paying with an ewallet such as Neteller or Moneybookers, which allows you to transfer money online without any hassle.  Another way is through pre-paid vouchers such UKash, which allows you to purchase a physical voucher at any retail store, punch in the 16 digit code and funds are instantly transferred to your online gambling account – cutting out the need to deal with cash altogether.

There are plenty of advantages to paying for your online entertainment with alternative methods.  In fact, many online casinos actually prefer you to pay with these methods and will reward you for doing so.  There are plenty of casinos that offer you a 10 – 15% bonus simply for paying for your gambling with Neteller, Moneybookers or a similar method.  Many times, these bonuses are over and above the welcome bonuses offered to you, or the reload bonuses that are given to players who come back to a casino to play again.

For more information about the alternative payment methods at your favorite online casino, check out the cashier section of the site.
