One of the considerations when opening a new online casino account is how to make any deposits into your account and although all online casinos will allow you to change your deposit method at a later date it is much simpler to choose the right method first time and one of the best deposit methods is to use PayPal. PayPal is one of a group of online casino payment methods known as e-wallets but PayPal is probably the oldest of them having come into existence around the same time as eBay and in fact eBay currently owns PayPal but there have been talks in the casino news recently about it possibly being sold off but that will not change the fact that it is an excellent deposit method for online casinos. PayPal casino deposits are immediate which means little or no delay in being able to play your favourite casino games and there are only very minor charges involved which is not the case with some other online casino deposit methods such as credit cards. PayPal was set with internet transactions in mind so it is very efficient and is accepted at all online casinos plus it is a very simple way of withdrawing your cash should be fortunate enough to have an online casino winning streak. Many online casino players have an account with PayPal these days but even if you don’t the process of opening a PayPal account is very simple and straightforward but you will need some form of bank account to link to it. Another advantage for some is that PayPal casino deposits do not appear anywhere on bank statements and there is no need to give the online casino any more information other than your PayPal account number and no matter how good the online casinos are with your data the fewer people that know your data the better it is going to be.
