The thai baht is the official currency of Thailand. Its official international abbreviation is THB, and it is referenced in text with the sign ฿. Although it is only official in Thailand, the thai baht does see use in Laos, Myanmar, and Cambodia as well. For a list of online casinos that accept thai baht, see this page.
Overview of the Thai Baht
The thai baht traces its origins back to the 13th century. While it is not a major international currency, the baht has become one of the most influential currencies in Southeast Asia. Online casino players in the region can use the thai baht to play at some online casinos without having to exchange into another currency. However, this varies from casino to casino.
Exchanging the Thai Baht
If you are a player in Thailand or another country that uses the thai baht, you may be able to play at an online casino even if it does not accept baht. Consult the casino to see what other currencies it offers; your local currency may be one of them. If not, see if you can find a third-party exchange service online or in your area to exchange your currency into one the casino accepts. Some e-wallets that are used for depositing and withdrawing may be able to do this.
If you do not live in a country that uses the thai baht, you may still be able to play at an online casino that uses it as a unit of currency. Check the casino’s “Cashier” or “Banking” page to see if they accept your local currency. If not, see if you can exchange into one of the more major currencies listed in the casino’s website. The casino may be able to do this for you, or refer you to a third-party service that can do it for a fee.
Banking with the Thai Baht
Depositing with thai baht is fairly easy at most online casinos. Check the cashier of the casino you have chosen to see what options are available for you. The most common methods include credit/debit card deposits, bank transfer services, e-wallets, and money transfer services. Make sure you understand all fees and possible delays that apply before choosing one particular method.
To withdraw thai baht from an online casino, check to see what withdrawal options are listed in the cashier. Among the most common ones are direct bank transfers, paper checks, and withdrawals to e-wallets. If you have any questions about any of the methods, don’t hesitate to contact the casino’s support team.
