- Log in

You will notice that the third step mentioned above is to select your preferred method. There are actually a number of different methods that can be used to get your funds online, and most sites offer you a lot of options in this area. Not all methods are available on all gambling sites, but you will generally find at least one method that is right for you.
Credit cards and debit cards
Virtually all gambling sites accept credit and debit cards, although they do not necessarily accept every type of card. Visa and MasterCard are generally fine, but American Express, Diners Club and other cards are not as widely accepted.
Credit and debit card deposits are generally processed instantly, so you can expect your funds to be available to use immediately. At most sites, you will be able to withdraw any winnings to any card used for deposit.
Bank transfer / Bank transfer
Most gambling sites, including those in the US, allow you to deposit via bank transfer (also called bank transfer). This is a good option in any of the following circumstances.
How to deposit by bank transfer
Using this method is a simple matter of arranging a transfer from your bank account to the bank account of the site where you want to deposit. Obviously, you will need to request the relevant bank details first, unless the site publishes that information, and you will likely be asked to include a specific reference number in your transfer. Once your transfer is received, the funds will be added to your online account. However, this does not necessarily happen instantly, as there may be a processing period.
An electronic wallet is a bit like an online bank account. E-wallets are generally very easy to set up and fund, and then you can use them to spend your money at any online store where they are accepted. They can be very useful for players, particularly those who use several different sites and frequently deposit and withdraw from them.
There have been many e-wallet services that come and go in recent years, but some have been around for a while. There are three in particular that are very popular.
