Unlike their land-based brothers, online casinos cannot accept currency and must use credit / debit cards, money transfers, eChecks, etc., for the players to bankroll their gambling. The usual suspects are represented such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, PayPal and Poli as well as others online casino payment option. Our job at Poke Monster is to only work with those casinos that offer these options, as well as safe and secure transactions.
As you can see from the list of accepted payment options, you will be familiar with all or most of these companies. Some are country specific such as Poli (Australia) while some, which are popular for other types of purchases, are not highly accepted for online casinos (American Express). Reasons range from merchant fees to rules and regulations of each country, but there should be a card and casino that fit your needs. We always ask, especially for new players, that you play some of the various slots and see which ones you enjoy playing. Next, see what casinos they are associated and check to see if the casino’s payment options suit your needs. Only work with the casinos and payment companies in which you feel comfortable.
For many who have experience playing at the land based casinos, it might seem a bit strange and surprising that you can play for real money on the internet. Just as we have been making purchases for years on the Internet, gambling is just the general progression from land based casinos. Making a deposit for an online casino is similar to making a purchase of an online item. Many times we will give a company such as Amazon our financial information so that we can make purchases quickly and safely. It’s the same with the online casinos, with the exception of maybe winning or losing some money. The point is that it is as safe and secure as making a purchase, and we at PokieMonster do the utmost to keep our players and their money safe.
