Canadian Casino Payment Methods
Here are some individual casino payment methods that fall under the umbrella of the options listed above.
Interac Transfer allows casino players to make deposits in a similar way as they would with a debit card. What you gain in accessibility here, you lose in speed, with withdrawals landing in your account within six working days. Users will also be charged a small fee on transactions with this option.
iDebit payments function in a similar way to e-wallets, allowing for quick deposits and even faster payouts. While it’s free to set up an iDebit account, users will incur a small fee of $1.50 on all transactions.
If you’ve verified a checking account with your casino site, you can make deposits with eChecks – an electronic equivalent to physical checks that requires the same banking information to make payments. eChecks are a useful casino deposit option, but can’t facilitate withdrawals.
InstaDebit is another third party intermediary between casino and bank, eradicating the need to input bank information when making a deposit, and allowing for fast payouts. InstaDebit itself won’t charge fees on transactions, but some online casinos might.
Another e-wallet option, EcoPayz places an emphasis on responsible banking, providing users with regular summaries of their transaction history to help keep track of funds. There are no fees with this option, and users can enjoy fast payout times.
WebMoney is an e-wallet service founded in Russia in 1998 with excellent security infrastructure and lots of authentication processes. Users should note that WebMoney charges a fee of 0.8% on all transactions up to $50.
AstroPay card is a prepaid card option that allows users to make transactions without revealing any banking information. Users can download an AstroPay card directly onto their phone, selecting their currency and preferred payment method as they set up their account.
Flexepin is a cash top-up voucher that operates like a prepaid card, but uploads funds to other existing e-wallet or prepaid card accounts. Flexepin vouchers can be bought with cash in retail outlets, using a unique 16-digit code to top-up funds in the designated account.
Bitcoin is a cryptocurrency that is beginning to carve a space for itself on the payment menus of more and more Canadian casino sites. All transactions are immediate, but there are some associated risks to trading with Bitcoin – and cryptocurrencies in general – so make sure you’ve read up on these before you utilize this option.
Visa and Mastercard
With all this noise of new banking technologies, it can be easy to forget the humble Visa and Mastercard options. These two stalwarts of online transactions have been available at online casinos ever since their inception, and you’ll find that all Canadian sites will accept them.
