PayPal Arrives at Bet UK
Providing efficiency for players is at the forefront of our mentality at Bet UK, whether those players are here for our online betting or online casino games, and with the introduction of PayPal, depositing and withdrawing finances has just become a whole lot easier.
If you don’t have an account, signing up for PayPal is quick, straightforward, and free. All you need is your email address.
What is PayPal?
PayPal is a well-known online payments system, that has its origins in the USA, although is now used the world over. It’s regarded as being one of the safest ways of transferring money online, as well as being flexible to suit your needs and convenient for making purchases, no matter how big or small.
At its most basic, PayPal is a service that allows people to pay, transfer money, and accept incoming payments simply. All that’s required is the one-time registration of a credit or debit card, which means you don’t have to provide those details to every single website that you’re attempting to make a payment to, as you can select PayPal at the checkout as confirmation.
How Does PayPal Work?
PayPal is similar to an e-wallet, in that you connect it with your bank and can then use it to confirm online payments that you wish to make, rather than having to put in your bank details every time. While we’re obviously inclined to use GBP at Bet UK, PayPal is available with all currencies, and will automatically convert between them for International sales.
When Bet UK players use PayPal on our site, it means that you don’t have to enter your credit or debit card details directly, as PayPal will complete deposits on your behalf at your request. In terms of deposits, it means they can be in your PayPal account faster than they would arrive via bank transfer.
What Are the Benefits of PayPal?
Not every microgaming online casino offers PayPal, so we’re delighted that we’re able to provide this payment method at Bet UK to our players, both old and new. PayPal is a mobile-friendly payment system, which is handy for those players that wish to indulge in the newest online slots, or place a wager on football betting from wherever they happen to be. It’s a convenient system on-the-go.
In addition to being simple and practical, making payments with PayPal are also faster. Once your account has been linked to your credit card, debit card, or bank account, you won’t need to add your details every time you wish to deposit. PayPal stores your financial details, so that you don’t have to share them with websites and merchants.
Is PayPal Safe?
In a word, yes. PayPal is a safe and reliable method for sending and receiving money online, and is trusted by most businesses and customers the world over. That said, nothing can ever be fully-described as totally risk-free, but with the level of security protocols and consumer protection that PayPal implements, it’s as close as it’s possible to be.
Paypal’s website and app are secure and fully encrypted to protect your data, and as mentioned above, they will never share that data with merchants or other third parties. By keeping all of that data in one place, it’s actually safer than providing your bank details every time you want to make a purchase or a deposit to Bet UK. It’s even less risk than handing your card to a salesperson in a real-life shop.
Live Casino & Online Slots at Bet UK
So now you’re all clued up when it comes to PayPal, you can choose this method if you wish to make a deposit at Bet UK, to use however you’d like on our online casino. You may wish to use it on our live casino table games such as live Blackjack and live Roulette. Failing that, feel free to explore our online slots, with instant classics such as Rainbow Riches joined by the likes of The Goonies Jackpot King.
