Online gaming is increasingly popular throughout South Africa and in order to meet the demands of their customers, online casinos are offering an ever-growing range of deposit and withdrawal methods, to make it easier and safer to play online. One of the most popular deposit methods offered by South African casinos is Neteller.
What is Neteller?
Neteller is a well known internet payment method. It is one of the world’s largest money transfer services, moving billions of dollars worth of funds every year, and is used by millions of casino gamers all over the world. It is available in 200 countries, including South Africa.
Neteller is an e-wallet system of money transfer in which customers pay money into a Neteller account from their own credit card or bank account and then use this Neteller account to pay for online services, including online casino deposits. Many South African casinos offer a Neteller deposit function, and once your casino account is linked to your Neteller account, it offers a straightforward way to transfer funds without leaving the casino lobby.
How to use Neteller with an online casino
Before you use Neteller to make a deposit with an online casino, you first have to set up a Neteller account. This can be done fairly easily. You will need to provide an email address, along with personal details including name, address, date of birth and phone number, and three security questions. Once your Neteller account is set up, you can then deposit funds into it via your own bank account or credit card. Setting up an account with Neteller is free although some banks may charge a fee to transfer money into a Neteller account.
Once your Neteller account has been set up and funded, the next step is to go to your favourite casino and click on the Neteller deposit icon or button. This will open up a page in which you enter your Neteller account details, and once your Neteller account is linked with the casino, you won’t need to re-enter these details in future, making the process of depositing and withdrawing funds convenient and quick.
To withdraw funds from an online casino using Neteller is equally straightforward. Go to the withdrawal section of the casino site, choose the Neteller option and enter your Neteller account details. You will then be able to withdraw funds to your Neteller account.
Does using Neteller affect my choice of games?
Using Neteller to make your deposit with a South African casino will not affect the range of games that you are able to play. Any casino that offers the Neteller deposit method is likely to offer all of the popular casino games that you are looking for, including slots, table games and video poker. All good South African casino sites will also work with mobile devices and enable you to make Neteller deposits via your smart-phone or tablet.
Is Neteller safe?
As a well-known global money transfer service, Neteller employs some of the most advanced security mechanisms in the financial world. It also offers additional security for casino players as they are not required to enter their financial details or other personal information every time that they make a transaction. For this reason it is popular with casinos and casino players, all over the world and is one of the most highly-rated money transfer services.
Pros and Cons of using Neteller
There are many advantages to using Neteller with South African casinos. Once you have set up your Neteller account and linked it with the casino cashier, money transfers are instantaneous. The process of moving money into and out of your Neteller account is quick and convenient, and doesn’t require players to spend time re-entering their details, making this method ideally suited to the fast-moving world of casino gambling where players want to have speedy and easy access to their funds.
Neteller is increasingly popular with South African online casinos, so using this method for deposits and withdrawals will give South African casino gamers access to all of the most popular casino games, and since the casinos themselves wish to encourage gamers to use Neteller as a deposit method, they sometimes offer bonuses of up to ten percent for gamers who deposit funds via a Neteller account.
The only negatives associated with using Neteller is that withdrawals can sometimes take a little longer to reach your bank account than with other methods, as the funds first go through your Neteller account. Some banks also charge a fee for transferring money to and from Neteller, so it is worth clarifying this with your own bank before using Neteller.
