Casinos.ie goes to great lengths to recommend trustworthy online casinos for you to choose from but having done that you will also need to consider how you intend to fund your chosen online casino and which casino deposit method you intend to use as that is one of the first questions that will arise when you start to register. There are of course several deposit methods available but using a debit card such as Maestro for a casino deposit remains one of the more popular methods. MasterCard is the company that runs Maestro although it is better known in Ireland as the Laser card but both the Laser card and Maestro card symbols appear on most cards issued in Ireland and they work in exactly the same way. Depositing into an online casino with Maestro is simple quick and should carry no costs, unlike some other casino deposit methods; the money will be available in your casino account immediately enabling you to start playing your chosen casino games. Being a debit card rather than a credit card Maestro casino deposits will have to be covered by money in your bank account but we consider that a good thing rather than a bad thing as it means you cannot play at an online casino with money that you do not have, something that we are very keen to avoid. Providing your Maestro details to any of the online casinos that we recommend should not be an issue as they all have excellent security arrangements but if you have any concerns you can still use your Maestro for casino deposits by opening what is known as an e-wallet (PayPal, Moneybookers etc.) and then funding that account with your Maestro whilst funding your online casino account with the e-wallet which sounds a little complex but it is an alternative online casino funding method.
