How To Pay To Play Bingo
If you venture onto a bingo site then at some point you're probably going to want to make a deposit and fund your account. Traditionally the usual methods are via a credit or debit card, but online gives you more options. Ewallets such as Paypal and Neteller offer a greater degree of simplicity whilst token payments such as Ukash also have their advantages.
Popular Bingo Payment Options
- Credit Card
- Debit Card
- Paysafecard (formerly Ukash)
- Skrill (formerly Moneybookers)
- Mobile Payments
Security is the biggest reason for looking to use a payment system rather than giving a bingo site your credit card/debit card details. Whether Paypal is more secure with your details versus Brigend (who look after payments on Cassava/Dragonfish sites) is a decision only you the player can make. What many players will find is that most bingo sites do ask for credit/debit card details at registration! However, you can opt-out of giving these days but that may compromise any welcome bonus offers available.
Ease Of Payments
Paypal and Neteller also offer an ease of payment - perhaps sometimes a little too easy. When we looked at Paypal we couldn't find any limitors for spending. Our advice for Paypal bingo users is to use the deposit limit tools offered by most bingo sites - this way you'll not over spend. On the flip side Paypal and Neteller are good services for getting your wins paid out.
Advantages & Disadvantages
Whether you choose the usual cards route or decide an eWallet or code payment option is for you then you'll find advantages and disadvantages. You may find there's extra security using Paypal, Neteller and Ukash - but then you may find these make spending online far too simple and not so easy to control. Something like Paypal does make doing online payments so much simpler and provided you're sensible about limits and deposit levels then it can be extremely beneficial.
