Already this month casinos.ie has spoken about the fact that selecting an online casino at which to play is accompanied by having to make a choice of how to make a deposit into your online casino account. Credit cards should be avoided as they have an additional set of charges as opposed to an e-wallet or indeed a debit card such as Maestro. Many Irish casino players will not recognise Maestro as in Ireland it goes under the name of Laser but they are one and the same thing when it comes to making an online casino deposit. Maestro casino deposits have the disadvantage for some that the transaction appears on your bank statement but if that is not a problem then deposits with Maestro are very good. The money is instantly available in your casino account so there is no delay in playing your favourite casino games and if you are fortunate enough to win then the Maestro card can also be used for withdrawals although this is less immediate. You will need to consult the banking pages of your chosen online casino to see what their withdrawals policy is. Casinos.ie not only discourages using a credit card for cost reasons but also because it is never good to play online casino with credit which is another very good reason that Maestro casino deposits are good as there is no credit and if the money is not available in your account when presented you will not be able to play. There are other casino deposit methods but using a Maestro or Laser card is very quick and easy and anybody who has a bank account seems to automatically get a debit card these days so there is not even an application form that needs to be filled in.
