Zimpler is a brand new depositing method that's set to launch in the UK this summer. The Swedish brand offers a mobile payment service dedicated to online gaming, and as it's already took off in Europe, we're quite excited for it's debut. In the UK it will compete with methods like Boku and Neteller, which are already very popular ways of funding your casino account. Zimpler do have a few tricks up their sleeve however, not to mention that they're already working in partnership with some of the best mobile casinos out there. Casinos like LeoVegas, Casumo and Karamba are set to adopt Zimpler, but what is it, how does it work and is it any good? We're giving you all the information you need to know ahead of it's release.
So, What Is Zimpler?
Put simply, Zimpler is a mobile depositing service much like Boku or PayPal. However, it has an edge as it's entirely dedicated to iGaming. This means that, unlike other services, Zimpler can focus all their efforts into casino-specific depositing problems and should also understand and be able to anticipate casino players' wants and needs.
Like PayPal, you must create a Zimpler account. This is slightly different to payment methods such as Boku or Trustly which don't require registration, but the good news is that by having a Zimpler account it means you can use the method at multiple casinos.
Similar to an e-wallet service, with Zimpler you need to select a payment method. Whilst we can't be sure what methods will be offered when Zimpler launches in the UK, in other countries this can be as simple as adding your card details. As a pretty unknown service, we can understand that supplying Zimpler with your banking information might seem worrying, however the company is fully FSA (Financial Services Authority) approved, meaning it's incredibly secure and that all your sensitive details will be protected.
How Do You Use Zimpler?
Signing up and registering your details with Zimpler is an incredibly easy process and takes just three steps:
- Select a Payment Method
- Confirm the Payment
Once the payment is confirmed, your Zimpler account is activated. Next time you deposit at any casino using Zimpler, you'll need to log in with the same phone number and you'll be sent a new SMS security code.
It's simple right? Zimple some would say…
As you can see, Zimpler remains secure by its use of a SMS verification code which is a one-use only number. Plus, even though you can save your card details to your Zimpler account, like with PayPal, your details will be kept shielded from the casinos and you can also request a receipt of your transaction via text message, email or post.
Where Will Zimpler Be Available?
At the moment Zimpler works in partnership with 14 iGaming platforms, which deliver the service to over 200 casinos. These include some of the big brands we know and love, such as 32Red, BGO, Leo Vegas, Thrills, Karamba, and Vera and John. We expect that as these brands have already adopted Zimpler for their European sites, they'll be some of the first to allow the method when Zimpler launches in the UK.
The popularity of Boku and other mobile payment methods suggests that Zimpler will do very well and as the market demand for mobile depositing services is constantly growing, it wouldn't surprise us if Zimpler managed to get some other big UK brands on side too.
