Neteller has had a rocky history with American gambling. In 2007, the popular e-wallet pulled out of the US market after a period of profound success. In fact, over 80% of gambling transactions in the States were processed via Neteller.
The payment service re-entered the American gambling market in 2014. This was in due thanks to the gambling act passed in 2013, which allowed casinos to offer online gambling in New Jersey. Neteller was certainly the main payment force in the US prior to exiting the market. Companies like Paypal have eaten into their shares since then - but this choice is great for online casino players in NJ.
Why? More competition means they need to provide better service to keep you happy!
Before you use Neteller to make a deposit, you will need to first create an account. Don't worry; there are no joining fees to pay - you can open an account free of charge. Once you have created your account, you can add a payment method.
The funding method you choose can be a bank account or a debit/credit card. You can even transfer funds from other e-wallets! Once your Neteller account is funded, you are ready to start depositing at NJ online casinos.
This payment option is a solid alternative to methods like debit/credit card, which face high rejection rates. You can also request a special prepaid card that will allow you to withdraw funds at ATMs.
Unfortunately, Neteller suffers from a major disadvantage. When funding an account via this payment option, you will have to pay a fee. And the fees are variable depending on the method used to fund the account. Some funding options charge only 1% - but some methods climb as high as 10%.
If you use the prepaid card, you will also have to pay fees if you make a withdrawal. These fees are why we recommend only using this method if you are out of options. Fortunately, there are many alternatives to choose from available to NJ online casino patrons.
With the fees Neteller charges for transferring funds, you may wish to consider another depositing option. Thankfully, finding alternatives for NJ online casino play is rather simple. Here's a few of the most popular.
If you still want the convenience of an e-wallet and aren't too put off by the fees, then you might consider Skrill. The big advantage of Skrill over Neteller is that the fees are much lower and more manageable. This means that your casino playing funds aren't being eaten up by charges.
The process for using Skrill is virtually the same. You will need to create a (free) account and then fund that account using a variety of payment methods. Not only can you deposit using this NJ online casino banking option, you can also withdraw too.
Paypal does not charge fees for transferring funds - unlike Neteller or Skrill. This immediately makes it a more appealing option for NJ casino patrons. You will need to create an account once again, but like the other e-wallets, it's totally free. You will then need to add your chosen payment method.
When you make a deposit via Paypal
, you will be required to log in to your account to authorize the transaction. This means that you will have to remember your password and the email address used to create the account.
You will also have to keep in mind that you won't be able to withdraw via Paypal unless you used the method to deposit in the first place. Account verification may also be required.
Using a VISA or Mastercard is another quick and easy way to get money into your account. You also bypass the extra step of needing an e-wallet in the first place. To make a deposit with a card, you simply need to head to the casino, choose the card payment option and then input your card details. Usually, this will be the long card number and the security code.
While paying by card is easy and offered by all NJ online casinos
, it is rejected most out of all the payment options. As online gambling is still illegal in most of the US, banks aren't keen on processing these casino payments
. Even in fully regulated and 100% legal online gambling states like New Jersey.
You can also not withdraw using credit/debit cards, a facility which most e-wallets offer. While having to use an e-wallet is a hassle, it's also one of the most successful ways for you to use your card at a New Jersey online casino.
Cash at the cage
If you live near Atlantic City, then you can bypass cards and e-wallets altogether. Depositing or withdrawing at the cage is fast, secure and (aside from the traveling) stress-free. You may need to let the casino know that you are going to use the cage facility. In this case, contacting customer service would be a wise choice.
