I think many of us now pay for things online without batting an eyelid, I know I certainly do (and perhaps a little more often than I should if I’m honest). But for some people, it still can be a bit daunting.

No more so than when you’re playing online games at casinos. When I first started playing a few years ago it took me a long time to build up trust with these services, but now – I think they’re safer than ever.

One of the best-known platforms for paying for this kind of thing online is PayPal and here, in this guide, I’m going to show you how easy it is to use it to withdraw your fees at online casinos. Read on to find out all!

The advantages of PayPal

  • It’s secure: It’s still one of the safest payment methods – after 25 years. It uses end-to-end encryption, meaning you’re protected.
  • It’s convenient: It’s definitely one of the most convenient platforms to use. Players can make deposits and withdraw them super efficiently.
  • It’s quick: It’s so super speedy! Your money is with you instantly and sometimes withdrawal only takes a matter of minutes – though in some cases it can be a day or two.
  • It protects the buyer: As a buyer, you’re always protected with PayPal/ If you have a problem with a game or a transaction, they’ll sort it for you.

Depositing money with PayPal

So, say you’re a first-time player at casinos accepting paypal as payment and you’ve never done it before. How easy is it to deposit some money? My answer would be ‘it’s simple!’. All you need to do is head over to the cashier’s section on your chosen game platform and choose PayPal as your go-to payment method.

You then just give your details and they’ll ask to verify that it’s you and your payment is all above board. Your deposit will be processed and you’ll be able to play straight away.

This is a simplified way of doing it:

  1. Go to the online casino and create an account (if you haven’t already).
  2. Next, find the cashier page on the casino website.
  3. Opt for PayPal as your deposit method.
  4. Choose the amount of money to deposit.
  5. Type in your PayPal email address and password.
  6. Review and check everything to make sure there are no errors.
  7. Confirm.

Withdrawing money with PayPal

I bet you think this is going to be tricky too! Not a bit of it. It’s just as easy as putting money in.

So, simply go over the casino’s cashier page again and then choose PayPal and opt for a withdrawal method.

When you’ve done this you’ll be asked to choose the amount of money you wish to take out and then it’ll be processed. Time frames for this can vary – sometimes it can be instant, but other times it can take up to a day or two. Always contact PayPal if you haven’t received your withdrawal after this time.

Below is a step-by-step guide on how to make a withdrawal from an online casino using PayPal:

  1. Go to the casino website and log into your account.
  2. Go to the casino’s cashier page.
  3. Choose PayPal as your withdrawal method.
  4. Opt for the amount of money you want to withdraw (you don’t always have to withdraw everything at once).
  5. Review and check the details.
  6. Confirm.

A guide to using PayPal at an online casino

At the present moment, PayPal has a market cap of $62.84 billion so it’s no wonder more people are choosing PayPal to make their deposits and withdrawals at online casinos. However, it’s always worth doing some research before you commit to using a particular gambling site!

  • Always do proper research, ask friends, and see which places have the best reviews.
  • Ensure any casino you use has SSL encryption.
  • Never share your details or passwords with anyone else.
  • Keep track of your account at all times.

This platform is a popular method for paying for goods and services all over the world and it’s trusted by millions. For frequent casino players like me, it’s safe, and effective and it also helps me keep a watch on how much I’m spending – which is great if you want to play responsibly, like I’d always urge anyone else to do.

Here are just a few closing thoughts from me on making PayPal transactions at casinos.

Remember that it’s possible for some online casinos to charge a fee for depositing and withdrawing money – check all the small print before you play. There are sometimes fees for converting currency and fees – again, always check before you sign up. Though it’s available in many places, it’s not yet global and some countries still haven’t adopted it. There may be occasional restrictions on how much money you can and can’t deposit, each casino might be different.
