The Turkish lira is the official currency of Turkey. The abbreviation TRY is used internationally to represent the lira in text. Its official sign (created in 2012) is not available in text form yet, so most places may still use the old sign “TL”. Some online casinos allow players to use the Turkish lira to deposit. See the list of Turkish lira casinos on this page.
Overview of the Turkish Lira
Although gambling in the Middle East is somewhat restricted, a fair number of online casinos do accept players from Turkey. However, not many allow them to use lira to deposit. Those that do feature a few different deposit methods, but players using international currencies do have more options.
Exchanging the Turkish Lira
If you use the Turkish lira in day-to-day life and want to play at an online casino that does not accept it, check to see if the casino also features some major international currency like the euro or the US dollar. The cashier department may be able to exchange your lira into one of these currencies, or refer you to a service that can for a fee.
If you do not live in Turkey but want to play at an online casino that uses the lira, check to make sure players from your country are accepted. Then see if your local currency is accepted as well, or if the casino also accepts a major international currency that is easy to obtain through an exchange service. Talk to a casino support representative for information about exchanging your currency.
Banking with the Turkish Lira
Turkish lira can be deposited through several different methods. The most common ones are credit cards, bank transfers, e-wallets, and money transfer services. Some of these methods may come with fees and delays, so it’s important to compare them before making a deposit. Consult the casino if you have any questions.
Withdrawals in Turkish lira can be processed through several methods as well. Many players will do a direct bank transfer, while others opt for an e-wallet withdrawal or a payment through a money transfer service. Ask a representative at your casino before depositing if you have any questions about cashing out.
