It may seem a little contradictory or even strange, but using cash can be a very good option to deposit to or withdraw funds from your online casino account. As you can imagine, this option is not available for the purely online casinos but it is for at least the two most popular online casinos in Ireland, namely Ladbrokes and Paddy Power both of which are available directly from http://casinos.ie/. Each of these is slightly different as in Paddy Power shops you will need a cash card whereas in Ladbrokes a credit or debit card may be enough if you have some other form of ID but the principle is the same that you can hand cash over the counter at the bookmakers shop and it is instantly transferred into your online account. Similarly you can make instant withdrawals from your account. There are of course many other casino deposit options including all major credit and debit cards, all the usual e-wallets such as PayPal, Neteller, clickandbuy, Moneybookers etc and bank transfer but they all have their advantages and disadvantages. The e-wallets are probably the best of the bunch apart from cash as your money is instantly available in your account although withdrawals generally take best part of a day. Surprisingly a Bank transfer which here at casinos.ie we think should be instantaneous will take 3 to 5 days to arrive in your casino account and another 3 to 5 days to go back again if you make a withdrawal from your winnings but that is banks for you. Credit and Debit cards have the disadvantage of charges being applied by either the bank or the online casino or both but we hasten to add that neither Ladbrokes nor Paddy Power make a charge. It does seem however that cash is indeed king..
