Finding the right payment method to manage your bingo games online can prove to be the turning point in choosing to play for the first time or helping you to manage your monthly outgoings. Most of the bigger sites offer a good range of payment options, so that no matter whether you’re nervous of paying online using your bank details, or haven’t got access to a bank card you can still enjoy the world of online bingo along with all your roomie mates.
The most popular methods of payment include the simple use of your debit card, Neteller, Ukash and transfer services. Sites such as Mecca offer the use of most credit cards as well as a range of other services like Neteller, whereas other sites such as Jackpot City do not offer services outside of card payments, so it’s important to check which services are supported before you start the sign up process.
Considering which payment method is best for you depends on your current credit status and your ability to watch what you spend; if you know you’re the sort of player who can get carried away with spending, choosing a cash voucher like those provided by companies like Ukash can be the answer.
If you’re unsure about using your bank details on the Internet there are ways to check the security of your chosen site to play on. Things to look for in a sites security make sure the site is accredited by Gamble Aware and has an encryption certificate such as those provided by GeoTrust. This certificate means your details are encrypted as soon as they are received so as to avoid hackers.
Most sites will be happy verify these details before you sign up and checking with the support pages or live help before you type in your magic numbers will give you the best idea of what kind of software they are running.
If you are in any doubt as to the security of the site you are looking at, look online for reviews of the site by other players in portals such as this, or email the site direct. If you do not get a response, and the site is based outside of the UK do not trust the site with any of your details, as scam sites sometimes appear offshore and are famous for not responding to customer queries of any kind.
