Deposit time-frames explained
Once you have submitted a deposit at your chosen casino, depending on what method you used to deposit, there will be a certain deposit timeframe. This is the time it takes to process the deposit, before it appears on your account and is ready for you to start playing with. When you make a deposit, the casino will utilize the most advanced security and encryption technologies. This will ensure that all of your financial information is completely secure.
Before you make a deposit, you could check the casino’s depositing timeframes, as each casino will process these according to their own time scales. There are so many different deposit methods and each of them will carry their own specified timeframe.
Let's start with one of the most popular methods of depositing, which is credit and debit cards. These are one of the most convenient ways to deposit with gamblers all over the world. The main reason for this is because approved transactions are usually automatically credited to your casino account to allow you to start playing instantly. Once you make your deposit, it is processed immediately. You'd be hard pushed to find a casino that does not process these methods of deposits instantly. Some casinos may show a processing schedule that says up to 10 minutes, but these are only estimates. In most cases, your deposit will be processed in significantly less time and, as we mentioned, for credit and debit cards this is usually instant. However, players that are using a credit or debit card to deposit in the United States may find that the processing times are slightly longer. Most of the US accepting casinos do require a longer time for the credit cards deposits to fully clear. If you are playing from the United States, it would be a good idea to check the processing time prior to depositing to avoid any disappointment.
Another extremely popular method of depositing is e-wallets. Again, there are lots of different e-wallet companies now that you can choose to deposit, but probably some of the most popular ones include Skrill, Neteller and Paypal.
All methods are extremely easy to deposit and convenient. These deposits work in pretty much the same way as credit and and debit cards, when it comes to timeframes. Upon receipt of a successful deposit your funds will usually be immediately available for you to play in your casino account. You can make a deposit via funds that are directly available in your e-wallet account or via your bank accounts and bank cards. Both of these methods that are available through your e-wallet when making a deposit will usually be instant. Again, some casinos may give a timeframe of up to ten minutes.
You may choose to deposit via Paysafe or Ukash. Using these methods is very safe and extremely easy. As both methods include you preloading your card with money, this means when you enter the pin number, you have to deposit your funds, which will instantly be available for you to play with.
Wire transfer/bank transfer is a more traditional way of depositing at a casino. This involves you transferring funds from your bank account over to your casino account. This can usually be done via online banking or via instructions to your bank. This method of depositing is known for taking a little longer to appear in your account and will not be instant. Once your deposit has been cleared by the bank, it will then be available for you to play in your casino account. Fast bank transfers can sometimes take up to 1-3 business days to appear on your account, whilst others may take longer and up to 5 business days. Please make sure you bear in mind that the casino deposit will be processed in business days, which for the casino will mean Monday to Friday and does not include Saturdays and Sundays.
If you deposit using the more popular methods, you will see that these will be instantly available in your account and it is only if you use the more traditional methods that you will have to wait for the funds to appear. Once you make your deposit, you should receive a confirmation email as proof of your deposit.
