Payment Method Bonuses

Were not sure you’re aware of this but there are ways for you to receive extra bonuses from online casinos besides the regular welcome and deposit bonuses offered by online casino.

These bonuses are generally called payment method bonuses and you can claim them from many online casinos just for making a deposit with a specific payment method the online casino has an interest in promoting, as they often have some sort of agreement with the payment processing provider. This is a win-win situation for everyone because it enables the online casino to give an extra bonus to its players and attract more new players this way; Players receive an extra bonus on money they were going to deposit anyway; and the payment processor gets more business and can attract new customers that will use their services not just for topping their online casino player accounts.

Online casinos offer many different methods in which you can deposit money into your player account.

The most widespread and probably easiest method is by the various Credit & Debit Cards available such as Visa, MasterCard, Diners, AMEX Visa Electron and Delta. With these, all you need to do is punch into the casino cashier your card details and the amount you wish to deposit. Not all online casino players feel comfortable with giving the online casino their credit card information or are interested in having this information about them available to their credit card company.

Another way is via bank transfer directly from your personal bank account. Again, this is not always convenient, and in addition is it time consuming, holds high fees and the transaction takes a number of business days.

Due to these reasons almost all online casinos widely accept deposits (and process withdrawals) via a large number of e-wallets such as Neteller and Skrill (ex Moneybookers), also called alternative payment methods (APMs for short), also called e-wallets. These e-wallets provide online casinos players with a safe, secure and instant deposit/withdrawal method for their online casino player account.

Whats less known to many players is that online casinos reward players depositing with these APMs with extra bonuses which can reach in some cases up to a 100% match bonus on top of the regular bonuses given to players depositing by credit card or bank transfer. Another thing not many online casinos will tell you is that whilst the usual minimum deposit is generally $20, they allow players depositing with e-wallets to make smaller deposits usually as low as $10 because the processing fees for the casino are simply lower for e-wallets. With some of these APMs you can transfer funds directly from your credit card/bank account to the e-wallet and others are simply pre-paid cards which you can buy at any kiosk or corner shop.
