Skrill has become one of the most popular e-wallets for making deposits at gambling sites.
Previously known as Moneybookers, they are based in the United Kingdom and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.
They have proved to be very reliable and trustworthy, and you can use this e-wallet at a wide range of online gambling sites.
Sadly for residents of the United States, they don’t currently support American customers.
We’ve provided more information about Skrill below, along with a quick guide on using this e-wallet to make deposits.
How to Deposit With Skrill
Making deposits with Skrill is simple, and you don’t even have to remember an account number. When you are logged in at your gambling site you’ll need to visit the cashier and select Skrill as the deposit method.
It may still be listed as Moneybookers at some sites, but most places have updated it. You’ll then need to enter the e-mail address associated with your Skrill account and how much you want to deposit.
At this point a new window will pop up, and you’ll have to go through the security process. You’ll need your password, and there will be a six digit code displayed that you have to enter. This is to help prevent automated hacking attempts.
Once you’ve completed this, your deposit will be processed and the funds will be straight in your gambling account. If you don’t have sufficient funds in your Skrill account, then you’ll be given the option to add the required amount using whatever card you have registered.
Most sites don’t charge any fees for this deposit method, and you’ll also allow you to withdraw any winnings directly to your Skrill account.
Withdrawals done in this way can take up to a day to go through, but you will often be completed within a few hours.
