Moneybookers is an online payment option that is based
out of the UK and is similar to Paypal. You can pay someone online
by funding your account with a credit card or bank account and
when you’re paid this way, you can also transfer the funds
back to your bank account.
The only difference is, you cannot instruct Moneybookers to take
the funds from your bank. You must instruct your bank to send
the money to Moneybookers, similar to a bank wire.
Some of the casinos that accept Moneybookers deposits
It takes about 2-4 days to complete this transaction and there
is no INSTANT feature like the one Paypal and Neteller
have. There is a fee of 2.5% to upload money from a credit card
but no fees other then what your bank charges to send Moneybookers
Please keep in mind that you CANNOT fund your Moneybookers account
via a MasterCard and then send the money to a casino because they
won’t allow it. If you intend on using the funds for gambling
online, you MUST do a wire transfer from your bank to Moneybookers.
There is a warning on the Moneybookers website that says:
Please note that money which was deposited via MasterCard cannot
be used to deposit money to a gaming website later on (e.g. casino
or betting). If you intend to use a website offering gaming services,
please send us a bank transfer.
This may deter some from using Moneybookers for online gaming
but if you get paid from a casino to Moneybookers, you can easily
transfer this amount to your bank account. This isn’t a
very flexible deposit option for most as there is a fee as well
to withdraw the money back to your bank.
Playtech casinos and some Microgaming casinos accept this method
