BPAY is an Australian bill payment service that is used by some online casinos as a deposit method. With BPAY, players who have an account with participating financial institutions can make deposits instantly using their computer or phone. A list of BPAY online casinos can be found on this page.
BPAY is only available to members of certain banks and financial institutions in Australia – you cannot register for BPAY directly through their website. If you are interested in using BPAY, visit their website and click the “Find Biller Codes or Financial Institutions” tab, then search your bank. Alternatively, check your bank's website for an integrated BPAY service. If it is not available, you will need to find an alternative method of depositing.
Depositing with BPAY
To make a deposit with BPAY, begin by logging into your casino of choice and clicking the “BPAY” deposit option. Enter the amount you wish to deposit and submit. You should be presented with a specific Biller Code and Reference Number that you will need to conduct the transaction. Log into your bank's website or mobile banking service and choose “BPAY” or “Pay Bill”. Input the amount of the deposit, then enter the casino's Biller Code and Reference Number to complete the transaction. Once the casino verifies your payment, your account will be credited manually.
Advantages of BPAY
BPAY is one of the safest ways for Australian players to deposit funds into an online casino. The service does not require you to share your bank account information or other sensitive details. This makes BPAY a good choice for players who are concerned with their online safety.
BPAY is also one of the few deposit options that is compatible with certain banks' smartphone apps. If your bank has BPAY available on their app, you can make a deposit via BPAY while on the go and have it ready to play when you get home.
Disadvantages of BPAY
BPAY is not an instant deposit service. An employee of your casino's cashier department will need to verify the payment before manually crediting your account. This may take up to 24 hours, although we expect that most BPAY deposits are credited much more quickly.
If you do not live in Australia, you simply cannot use the BPAY service. Some online casinos in other regions are compatible with other bill pay services, although they are not nearly as well-integrated and usually take more time to process.
