Following on from our recent online casino tips regarding choosing your casino games according to your budget, we should perhaps look at another important choice that new online casino games players must make when they register with an online casino. The choice of how to fund an online casino account is vitally important and the wrong decision can be expensive. All the online casinos on our recommended list have management structures in place to ensure the security of your personal and banking details, and all of them offer a wide range of casino deposit options to choose from but it has to be said that some casino deposit options are better than others. Take credit cards for instance, there may be very good reasons for using a credit card for purchasing some goods and services on the internet but funding online casino games with a credit card will cost you money. Not only will you be charged interest on your casino deposit from day one but the banks will also impose an additional charge of up to 2% because you are using the card for gambling. Some banks will even penalise you in the same way for using a debit card as a casino deposit option so beware the use of plastic. In Ireland both Ladbrokes and Paddy Power allow online casino customers to manage their accounts using cash at their high street betting shops, which is clearly an ideal situation if you have easy access to one of their outlets but what about the rest of us. In our opinion by far the best online casino deposit option is an e-wallet such as PayPal or Neteller, both of which provide you with privacy and security, and once you have opened an e-wallet account it can be used for many other internet transactions. An e-wallet can itself be funded using a debit card or even a credit card without additional surcharges although using a credit card will still incur interest charges from day one because it would be considered as a cash transaction. An e-wallet is without doubt the best casino deposit option apart from cash.
