FedEx checks are paper checks sent through the international FedEx courier service. FedEx does not issue these checks; rather, they simply provide a safe method to send checks through the mail. Certain online casinos allow players to withdraw (and sometimes even deposit) with a check sent through FedEx. Some of these casinos are listed on this page, but if you do not see your casino of choice on this page, don't hesitate to talk to a support representative and find out if FedEx checks are an option for you.
Depositing with FedEx Checks
If you'd like to make a deposit with a check through FedEx, you need to check to see if your casino supports deposits via checks. If they do, get the mailing address your casino uses for receiving checks from players. This is likely listed on the casino's “Banking” or “Deposit Methods” page, but if not, ask a customer service representative.
After obtaining the address, make sure you get the appropriate information written on the check. This would include your deposit amount, the correct payee name, as well as any notes you need to put on the check to assist in processing, such as your username or account ID. Then visit your nearest FedEx drop-off location and pay the necessary fee to ship the check. Make sure to ask for a tracking number if you want to be notified when the check arrives at the casino.
When the casino receives your check, they will process it as soon as possible. Once it clears their bank, they will manually credit your account with the amount of the check.
Withdrawing via FedEx Checks
To request a withdrawal via a FedEx check, go into the casino's cashier and into the “Withdraw” or “Cash Out” section. An option such as “Check” or “Courier Check” should be listed. Select it, then fill out the necessary forms to submit the withdrawal request. Once the casino approves it, they will issue a check from their bank and send it to you via FedEx. A fee may apply for this service.
Advantages of FedEx Checks
As a deposit method, a FedEx check gives you plenty of security. You will receive confirmation once it arrives at the casino's offices. Additionally, you can check with your bank to verify that it has been cashed. In the rare event that your check falls into the wrong hands, your bank will be able to assist you in reclaiming the funds.
As a withdrawal method, FedEx checks are one of the most widely available. If you can't sign up at an e-wallet service (or don't want to pay the fees associated with one), a FedEx check is a reliable way to receive your cashout almost anywhere in the world.
Disadvantages of FedEx Checks
Unfortunately, FedEx checks are not instant for either deposits or withdrawals. If you choose to use the FedEx check method at an online casino, you should expect several business days to pass before the funds can reach their destination. FedEx's tracking number service can help you keep an eye on a check, so make sure you ask for one when you deposit at a FedEx location or withdraw from an online casino.
