The Czech koruna (or “crown”) is the official currency of the Czech Republic. Its official abbreviation is CZK, but is often denoted with the symbol “Kč”. Due to the growth of the online gaming market in Europe, an increasing number of online casinos accept Czech korunas for deposits and withdrawals. See the index on this page for a list of Czech koruna casinos.
Overview of the Czech Koruna
Czech korunas in their modern form have been in existence since 1993, after the split of Czechoslovakia into the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Previously, both countries used the Czechoslovak koruna. While most online casinos serving Europe primarily deal in euros, Czech korunas are sometimes accepted for players residing in the Czech Republic.
Exchanging the Czech Koruna
If you're from the Czech Republic, you may be able to play at an online casino even if it does not accept Czech korunas as long as the casino allows you to register. You should be able to find a service that will exchange your korunas for euros fairly easily. Check the e-wallets in the casino cashier, or see if the casino can perform this service for you.
If you do not use Czech korunas but would like to play at a casino that does, see if your local currency is also accepted. Most casinos that offer games in Czech korunas also support euros and other local European currencies. If this is not the case, you will need to find another casino.
Banking with the Czech Koruna
Online casinos that use the Czech koruna will usually feature several deposit options. Go into the casino cashier to see what is available to you. This may include credit cards, online payment services and e-wallets, and bank transfers. Check the various fees and timeframes before deciding on a method, and consult the casino's support team if you have any questions.
Withdrawals through Czech korunas are also available through several methods. The most popular ones are bank transfers and e-wallets, although some online casinos may offer paper checks or another money transfer service. Players are encouraged to consider their withdrawal options before making a deposit. Consult a representative at the casino of your choice if you need help deciding.
