When opening a betting account, it used to be the case that the only payment method available was a debit or credit card. However, times have changed and customers can now use a range of methods to make a deposit or withdrawal.
This includes Skrill which was formerly known as Moneybookers and is accepted by several leading bookmakers, with customers able to facilitate transactions wherever they are in the world.
Here are just some of the bookmakers that accept Skrill as a payment method:
What is Skrill?
It’s a payment method pretty similar to PayPal. Rather than deposit or withdraw money directly with the betting operator, you instead put money into your Skrill account after setting one up.
Skrill will make sure everything is above board by carrying out ID checks. But once you have passed with flying colours, then making transactions with various bookmaker websites is really simple. With just the one Skrill account, you have a one-size-fits all situation.
You can deposit money into your Skrill account by linking a bank account or debit card, while the same applies to a withdrawal.
Most bookmakers will not charge you for using Skrill and it’s pretty quick when it comes to making a withdrawal. As per PayPal, the moment you make a withdrawal will see the bookmaker carry out a transaction and you can expect the money in your Skrill account literally hours later
