There are plenty of ways in which you can make a deposit into your online casino account but credit card casino deposits are not really one of the best. Credit cards are of course a wonderful invention to save people carrying around loads of cash but the drawback is that you can spend money that you do not in actual fact have and that combined with playing at an online casino can be problematic for some. The banks are of course very happy for you spend money on a credit card and not pay it back as they can then charge exorbitant rates of interest but what they do not make clear is that using a credit card for depositing into online casinos and indeed for any other form of gambling will be subject to additional charges simply because it is gambling. One of the advantages of credit card casino deposits is that the money is available instantly in your online casino account but that is also a disadvantage as it is then considered as a cash transaction and treated in exactly the same way as if you had made a withdrawal from an ATM which means that interest is being charged from the day of the transaction. The online casinos themselves do not mind one way or another which deposit method you use but using a credit card could be more expensive than you think. Better casino deposit methods include using one of the many e-wallets that are available or a simple debit card or even cash for some online casinos. Both Paddy Power and Ladbrokes which have betting shops will accept cash over the counter from Irish casino players which can then be credited to your online casino account straight away. If you are close to a shop this can be a very convenient way to fnd your online casino play.
