One of the most important considerations for Internet online casino players is how secure their money will be when they play at a website or sites. One of the latest innovations which has seen a massive uptake from customers and operators alike is Skrill. This is powered by Moneybookers, where for European and UK online gamblers, the option is nothing short of ideal. This online banking method even offers these gamers a debit card, where they are able to withdraw winnings to and withdraw cash from ATMs all over the world.
Internet online casino payment methods are designed to improve life for users’, well…this at least is what they are supposed to do. Sometimes they do, and sometimes they don’t, but the one thing that Skrill does, is offer players peace of mind. Basically, just like other methods it provides a one-stop online banking shop where all personal details are kept safe, and the shopper or player does not have to keep entering personal banking details every time they make a payment at a new site.
What makes Skrill even better, is the fact that money can be sent to anyone with an email account, it can be uploaded to your account from a bank account, credit card or debit card, and even makes foreign exchange transactions for a very minimal cost of 1.9%. Moneybookers has been a great online banking brand for the past decade, and Skrill is merely a rebranding and upgrading of Moneybookers facilities. We can apparently definitely expect this product to constantly evolve from now on. Evolution and innovation are king in the world of the Internet online casino.
What has taken place is that Skrill is looking at things differently and they are doing things differently too. They are registered in the UK and Wales with the FSA, which is the Financial Services Authority. Money bookers was one of the very first of the e-wallet banking methods to be registered with this authority, and today over 100 000 partner companies, including Internet online casinos, now offer Skrill as a payment method.
The uptake has been good by users too, and all online Moneybookers accounts should by now have been transferred to Skrill. Skrill – powered by Moneybookers falls under the Electronic Commerce (EC Directive) Regulations of 2002, and concentrates on both business and individual client focussed solutions. This company was purchased in a majority buyout by Investcorp’s technology division, a private equity company called Investcorp Technology Partners. Things have never been this good, nor will they ever be the same again.
It is unfortunate that only European clients may qualify for the Mastercard partnered debit card, but with this revolutionary product, we are pretty sure this will all soon change. They are the leading European digital money company – one of the largest in the world. So, if you are wondering how to do your banking online, why not give them a try?
