The most important department of any casino is its cashier and banking department. A good cashier should win the confidence of its clients via banking security, provide various deposit methods, and process any bank transactions in a timely manner. There are numerous ways to get money onto online casinos but most fall under three general categories: credit cards, online wallets, and bank transfers. See below for more details on the top deposit methods for online casinos.

Visa is the most popular and common way to deposit online. As almost everyone has a Visa credit or debit card, it's recommended as the first deposit option.

MasterCard is another great deposit method or those in the US and other countries. Fast, convenient, and usually no fees associated..

American Express is a premiere way to deposit online. Amex tends to have a higher success rate and is less likely to be blocked.

NETELLER is the most popular e-Wallet for online casinos. Although US players are not accepted, it is the top choice for those outside of the US.

Paypal is the most popular way to transfer money online thus making it a great method for online casinos. See which casinos accept Paypal.

Skrill formerly known as Moneybookers, is one of the more popular online money transfer web sites. Most online casinos accept Skrill for deposits.

eCheck is a very convenient deposit method, mainly used for US players. It's basically the same as writing a check to deposit into your casino account.

The security at most online casinos are pretty much airtight. All the big names in the online casino industry understand that their customers' personal financial information is of the upmost importance. They've implemented state-of-the-art security measures to ensure their any private information is never leaked out. Most online casinos use, at least, 128-bit encryption.

Credit and debit cards are the most basic online casino deposit method. Using bank cards is as easy as making an online purchase. Players need only type in their card's information, choose an amount to deposit, and wait for the deposit to process. The process time for credit cards at most online casinos is a few seconds. Some casinos may require players to confirm their identity with the casino to ensure customer security. Each casino's identity confirmation process is different so waiting times may vary. Most casinos accept Visa and MasterCard while a choice few also accept American Express.

Bank transfers are another great way to deposit money onto an online casino. To use a bank transfer, players must enter bank checking account information. Sometimes, players can initiate the transaction at their bank. Bank transfers may take anywhere from 5-14 business days while bank wires, which are a bit more expensive in terms of fees, take a shorter time to process (24 to 48 hours). Bank transfers are one of the most popular methods to deposit money onto online casinos.

Online wallets or eWallets are basically sites that receive and send money for their clients. Casinos implement online wallets as an easy way for players to deposit. In countries where credit card transactions are not allowed, casinos may heavily rely on online wallets. Online wallets can be linked to bank accounts and credit cards. They can both deposit money onto and withdraw money from the casino for their clients. A fee is usually tacked onto the deposit or withdrawal. They work as an excellent alternative when players cannot deposit via credit card or bank transfer.
