One of the factors that I consider before joining an online casino is the deposit/withdrawal methods offered as there are a myriad of online financial services that can be used – some good some bad. In this age of online fraud and hacking it is imperative for me to be dealing with reputable and secure payment methods along with the Online Casinos themselves. So What payment methods were I offered by bet365 Casino, this article will take at the payment methods I encountered, primarily PayPal.
I started with PayPal as It is my preferred method due to its ease of use, fast transaction speeds and secure reputation. The answer to the title is Yes, I was happy that bet365 casino accepts PayPal for both deposits and withdrawals. As with most things in life, there was a downside, well in my opinion anyway, this being that when I deposited using PayPal I could only receive any withdrawals by the same method, i.e PayPal. This I personally found restrictive as I may wish to credit my Bank Account or decrease my credit card debt.
According to the bet365 website, a withdrawal should take no more than 24 hours and they have not disappointed me so far as I have received my withdrawals well within this timeline. I must admit expected quick withdrawals and I would have been severely disappointed if they were not as when I deposit using PayPal the funds are instantly credited.
E-Wallets in my mind are the way ahead as they are fast and secure, being that they do not directly divulge your debit or credit card details to the vendor which I find reassuring. I personally primarily use PayPal and once happy with a casino then my credit and debit cards and not other e-wallets so I have gathered information directly from the bet365 website of to inform you of other e-wallets that are accepted by them.
As stated previously my PayPal withdrawals have taken less than the 24 hours stated on the bet365 website, other e-wallets are reported on the bet365 website to take between 12 -24 hours which I have no reason to doubt.
A double barrel of a title, as before making my first withdrawal I had to Verify an ID for which I chose my passport. This was simple enough as I uploaded this via the Know Your Customer section of the bet365 website, after my registration process.
To make a withdrawal, after the initial ID verification, Is quite simple, find the following steps that I took to withdraw my winnings below:
Voilà done dusted then I await my funds to appear in PayPal account.
Sure, I would like to think so as the bet365 website carries a Thawte trusted site seal which means that bet365 site’s identity has been verified and that it is secured with SSL. A good tip I found for when entering personal details is to look for https:// on the web address bar whilst entering details, which shows that a uniquely secure connection between yourself and the website. I also truly believe that bet365 is a reputable company and employ the required security methods and if they didn’t I would assume they wouldn’t be as popular as they are.
Another positive for using PayPal at bet365 is that I incurred no additional fees on either deposits or withdrawals. As for other e-wallets, I cannot personally vouch as I have not used other than PayPal but I can state on perusal of the bet365 site that I saw no additional fees that would be levied on e-wallets.
Using PayPal I have deposited the minimum allowed, that being £10, the most that I have deposited is a few hundred quid which on reading the bet365 website is a lot less than the permitted £5500.
As for withdrawals Limits that are set according to the bet365 website the same at the deposits £10-£5500. I personally have not withdrawn less than £100 and the biggest withdrawal I have made is £500.
A point to note, which was interesting for me to read regarding bet365 bonuses, at the time of writing payments made by e-wallets did not exclude customers from bonuses/promotions, unlike other online casinos I have recently read about.
Well, that’s the end of my article regarding bet365 deposits and withdrawals, I hope it will be at least an enlightenment to some.
