If you are using an online casino for the first time, one of the things you will need to decide is how you intend to make deposits and hopefully withdrawals from your online account and all online casinos offer many options but they are not all as good as each other. Personal preference does play a part but just because you automatically reach for a credit card for internet transactions does not mean that a credit card deposit is the best option for an online casino and the main reason for this is that credit cards make a charge for all gambling transactions including online casinos. If you already have an e-wallet such as PayPal or Moneybookers then that is an excellent deposit method for an online casino as the money is available in your account immediately and a further advantage is that the online casino has no knowledge of any other bank details. We hasten to add that all the online casinos that we list in this site have excellent security systems so if a debit card casino deposit is your preferred option your details are perfectly safe. The Laser card which is unique to Irish casinos is also a very good online casino deposit method. A couple of bookmakers who operate online casinos in Ireland are also able to accept cash as a casino deposit method and those are Ladbrokes and Paddy Power. This means that if you walk into one of their shops you can hand cash over the counter and request that it be credited to your online casino account which is of course just about as secure as you can get. As a further comment about credit card casino deposits, remember that the credit card company will treat a deposit into an online casino as a cash transaction and therefore interest will be charged from the day of the deposit.
