Depositing money to play mobile slot games is easy and can be done by using a number of different methods. This brief guide is intended to explain how each method is used, and to hopefully answer any questions or concerns you might have in regard to depositing money to play your favourite mobile slot games.
Depositing money from your mobile with a credit or debit card
Using a credit or debit card is probably the most popular and commonly used method for depositing money to play mobile slot games. Thanks to new secure 128-bit encryption technology on mobile devices, using your credit or debit card on your mobile device is now just as secure as doing so on your computer.
If you are still feeling skeptical about the process, or if you just don’t like the inconvenience of entering your credit or debit information on your phone each time you want to add funds, you can register your card on the online casino’s website, and then deposit money into your account whenever you see fit. You will be able to play with your money almost immediately.
Depositing from your mobile using UKash
Ukash is an easy option that provides absolute security. Many mobile casinos accept Ukash. All that is required is that you find a local store with the PayPoint, PayZone or E-Pay signs. At any of these stores, you will be able to trade cash for a voucher to be used online. Your voucher will have a 19-digit number on it, which you will enter into your mobile casino account to redeem for the cash value.
There is no registration process with UKash, and if you only want to use a portion of your voucher amount with your mobile casino, your mobile casino will redeem the amount you select and provide you with a new 19-digit number, which will allow you to use the remaining cash value with another online merchant if you choose.
Depositing money using your mobile phone bill (Premium Rate SMS)
Most mobile casinos, as well as most mobile phone companies, allow you to use your phone bill as a credit or debit card, essentially charging the amount you deposit to your mobile bill, which you will pay with your phone bill at the end of the month. This is called a chargeable SMS or a Premium Rate SMS – SMS simply meaning “Text Message.”
The upside to depositing money with this method is that it is risk-free, there is no chance of fraud, and there is no chance you will receive a charge back – since you are using your mobile phone bill. Plus, the service is available to all players regardless of if they have an account with the mobile casino or not, and it is accepted by all mobile networks. The downside to this depositing method is that you typically cannot make large deposits, with the maximum allowable deposit usually only £6. For those wanting to simply have a few spins every now and then for fun though, this is the perfect choice.
Depositing money using Neteller
Having a Neteller account is similar to having a credit or debit card. If you wish to use this method, you will first have to open a Neteller account at www.Neteller.com. Then, once you select the Neteller payment option at your mobile casino, you will enter your account number along with a security code. Processing takes about as long as with a credit or debit card – only a few moments. Many mobile casinos accept this method of payment, and it is as secure as using a credit or debit card.
Whichever method you choose to make your mobile casino deposits, each one listed above will provide you with a safe, hassle-free, minimum-waiting-time experience. All four methods discussed in this guide are considered the main, most commonly used ways to deposit money into a mobile casino account. Hopefully, now you feel a little more educated on the depositing process and – if you want to play – you can execute the first step with confidence.
