2016 was a great year for the mobile casino industry. Alongside great new casino launches and innovative games, we also saw a rise in different payment methods. New services such as Zimpler entered the market, whilst we also saw a rise in players using phone bill depositing services such as Boku.
Many players still remain fans of more traditional methods, like credit/debit card payments, however if you’re looking for a new depositing method for the new year, then you’ve come to the right place. We’re looking at the three best depositing methods to use at new casino sites in 2017.
Phone Bill Payments
Phone bill payments have been around for quite sometime, yet they still remain one of the most efficient and easy ways to fund your account. More and more players are making the switch to this method as it offers a completely secure depositing service. Phone bill payments work by charging your payment to your monthly mobile phone bill or by using your existing phone credit.
Boku, the leading phone bill operator, works in partnership with mobile networks to ensure that users’ transactions are secure and authorized. The service means that you only ever need to enter a mobile phone number to make a payment, making it completely resistant to internet fraud.
Zimpler is a brand new mobile depositing service and we think it has the potential to really take off in 2017. Created in Sweden, Zimpler is entirely dedicated to iGaming. This gives it an advantage over other methods as it means the service has a complete knowledge about online casino and how their banking systems work. It also means that they understand what players want from a depositing method, and that they can anticipate problems before they arise.
Another huge advantage of Zimpler is that, unlike e-wallet services, you don’t need to manage your account separately to your casino account. This saves players time and avoids having to remember another set of login details because, let’s be honest, we have a hard enough time remembering all our passwords as it is.
PayPal is one of the oldest e-wallets around. It’s become one of the most successful online payment methods, not just among mobile gamblers but with online shoppers too. In fact, the service is for online retail more than it is for gaming. However, due to it’s reliability and ease of use, we can see it growing even more in popularity in 2017.
More and more casinos are adopting the method, and this is due to players feeling comfortable and familiar with the service. Unlike the two methods mentioned above, PayPal is a household name and so consumers are more likely to trust the service over other services.
