There’s a new Paypal Casino in town my friends, and it’s name is Wombat Casino!
PayPal – famously once run by that Rocket Man Elon Musk – is the planet’s largest e-wallet service with over 250 million customers. The idea is the same as other e-wallets like Skrill and Neteller. PayPal allows you to move money around without having to share any other financial information other than your PayPal details. Paypal are pretty strict about which online casinos they let use the system, so we are thrilled to have made the grade! Thanks Paypal!
So now, whether you’re playing Iron Dog Blackjack, live baccarat or your favourite slot game you can play for real with one more payment method, in the UK at least.
At this point it’s only UK players who will be able to use Paypal as a payment method. If you are from another country, sorry about that but we didn’t make the rules on that one. In the future, who knows….
How do you get a PayPal Account?
If you don’t have one already, you obviously haven’t been shopping on eBay for collectible inflatable sharks and 1950s Coca Cola signs. Not to worry, it’s dead easy to sign up. Just head to Paypal, fill out the ID questions (the usual malarkey), verify your email, and Bob’s your Uncle. You will need to link your bank account or credit card to your account to start transferring money, and they’ll want to check you out before increasing your limits to make sure you’re not up to any funny stuff, but essentially you’re good to go. It normally takes a couple of days too get the verification sorted.
Depositing with PayPal
You’ll only be able to do this if you’re a UK customer. If you have a Paypal account, all you need to do is select the Paypal Casino payment option and follow the instructions. Every transaction will be encrypted using the latest technology and funds will be instantly available to you on your Wombat Casino account. Nice!
If you do not have enough money in your PayPal wallet to cover the cost of the deposit, you can have PayPal bill your credit card directly. To do this, you’ll need to have added and verified your card beforehand.
Withdrawing via PayPal
As you long as you have sent all of the necessary ID documents so that we know you are who you say you are, then you are also free to withdraw your winnings on Paypal too, it’s as simple as that.
Once you have the funds in your PayPal account, you can of course then use them to buy goods or services at any store that accepts PayPal, or have the money sent to you via bank transfer or cheque.
The Pros of PayPal
Well it’s all about reputation isn’t it? Paypal is the e-wallet that has been around the longest and has stood the test of time. They are accepted at more online stores than any other e-wallet, period. You’re in safe hands.
There’s the safety and security angle as well, of course. When you use PayPal to deposit at Wombat Casino, you do so with the full knowledge that both companies are treating your funds and your personal info with the utmost care. Some people just to prefer to give out their banking information once (to PayPal). We can understand that, it’s just about keeping it simple, right?
The Cons of PayPal
Although it’s easy to set up a PayPal account for casino payments and withdrawals, it can take a while to get verified and to link your various accounts and credit cards. You might have to sacrifice a bit of speed, especially at the beginning. If that’s a problem for you, just remember that you can use all sorts of payment systems at Wombat Casino like credit cards, debit cards and other e-wallets like Neteller, Skrill and paysafecard. Just pick one that suits you best.
Paypal, you Ripper!
