Casino Payments – The Basics

18 September 2023

If you’re new to online gambling and want to make your first deposit at an online casino, it can seem a little daunting at first. In this manual, we explain step by step how to deposit and withdraw money at non GamStop casinos.

Casino Payments the Basics

How Do You Deposit Money at Non GamStop Casinos?

Before you create an account at a non GamStop casino, research which payment method the casino supports. You can often see this at the bottom of the homepage with the various icons of well-known payment methods.


Once you have found a non GamStop casino, you must first create an account. You often have to enter some personal information before you can make a deposit with a valid bank account or new payment method. You may also have to identify yourself first.

Deposit Money

You can often do this by pressing a ‘cashier’ button or visiting the payment page. Here you choose the desired payment method and then follow the instructions on the screen to make your first deposit. Whether you choose an e-wallet, an online wallet or a virtual debit card, the online payment service of your non GamStop casino account is the same on which you must make withdrawals.

Once you have deposited your money, you can start playing with it. Check out our handy overview of online casino games to see where online gamblers prefer to play.

Practice With a Demo Account

At many non GamStop casinos, you can try out most casino games for free in demo mode. So take advantage of this before making your first deposit. As you know, gambling costs money and before you use your online wallet, you, like many other online gamblers, should first get really familiar with the game you want to play.

How to Withdraw Your Winnings?

Payouts in an online casino also go through your e-wallet or other popular payment method. When depositing you will mainly see lightning-fast transactions, when paying out it takes a little longer. This applies to all payment methods. First check at the non GamStop casino in question how long the average withdrawal takes, what the costs are, etc. It is often the case that casinos do not allow you to be paid out with a payment method if you have not made a deposit with it. So keep this in mind and always read the small print carefully before gambling anywhere online.

Go to the Payout Page

Here you choose your desired withdrawal method and enter how much you want to withdraw. If you use an e-wallet, you often have to log in to the website or app of the e-wallet in question (so do not enter your casino login). Popular payment methods offer fast payouts, but almost every transaction must be approved.

Wait for It

Now all you have to do is wait for the money to arrive at your chosen withdrawal location. This could be your bank account, but also an e-wallet, for example. Before the money reaches your bank account or one of your e-wallets, most non GamStop casinos must first approve the transaction. PayPal is seen as perhaps the best payment method, but it takes quite some time before the deposit is processed. This is one of the strictest options compared to other payment methods.

Complete the Bonus Conditions

If you have received a casino bonus, it is common that you have to ‘turn over’ the bonus money received many times before you can cash it out. Typically this is 15 to 30x the bonus money received.

Which Online Payment Methods Are Legal in the UK?

When it comes to payment methods in the UK, there are only a few legal options. For example, only the payment methods Apple Pay, Skrill and Neteller are not fully approved by the gaming authorities. So if you have an electronic wallet from one of these innovative payment methods.

Below you will find more information about four different payment methods that you do not currently use in non GamStop casinos.


Neteller offers an e-wallet service to which you link your bank account or credit card. You then pay securely online via your electronic wallet.


Just like Neteller, Skrill is a method for easily and directly depositing and withdrawing from online casinos. Skrill also has its own prepaid MasterCard that you can order. Skrill is one of the payment methods that is no longer available since the opening of the Dutch market.


Bitcoin wallet deposits are not legal at online casinos. So pay close attention to so-called Bitcoin casinos to see if they are honest and do double your research before paying with Bitcoin. Bitcoins themselves are of course not illegal, but offering them as a means of payment in a casino is not allowed until now, to the disappointment of many online gamblers.
