Online casino players always have to decide how they will add money to their online casino account and although there is plenty of choice, some of the better methods are what are known as e-wallets and one of the best known of those for Irish casino players is Moneybookers or as it should now be known Skrill. Skrill and Moneybookers are one and the same company so it is a question of branding and since that was announce d in 2011 the rebranding process has been ongoing. Moneybookers was first established as an online payment company in 2002 and is a well respected and trusted name in the online payments industry. Nearly all online casinos will accept either Moneybookers or Skrill as a deposit method and the company claims to have 35 million customers making it one of the largest online payment providers in the world and they also operate in over 40 different currencies. It is very quick and easy to open a Moneybookers account as all you need is an e-mail address and to provide some personal information and then of course you will have to arrange to fund the moneybookers account. Money bookers does not provide any form of credit which is good for online casino gamblers as there is no temptation to play with money that is not available. In very recent news it seems that Moneybookers or Skrill has been purchased by CVC Capital Partners but that should not change anything about the operation of the business. The previous owners of Skrill were Investcorp which is a Bahrain based investment group and the selling price is reported to be around €600 million with the company reporting revenues of €200 million last year with EBITDA of €50 million.
