How to Make Withdrawals from Online Casinos

Published: January 24, 2013

Whenever you make a deposit into an online casino, there is certainly a purpose, which is to play the games and be able to win something along the way. But there is nonetheless one ultimate objective, which is to be able to get your money, or some of it, out of it, out of there after you have (hopefully) realized a tidy profit. This comes in the form of a withdrawal. As long as we know that is the case, the process of making that withdrawal is going to be extremely important. So how do you go about it?

Well, when you are taking a look at the ways you can put money into an account, you can, at the same time, see how you are going to take money out. When you hit the "Cashier" page at an online casino website, you have an opportunity to see both the deposit methods and the withdrawal methods. They are sometimes one in the same, but not always. For example, you may have opened up an account using a credit card, but that doesn't mean you're going to be able to withdraw by that method. Usually the casino will only let you withdraw using a bank wire or a check that will be sent to you by an overnight service like UPS or FedEx. Also, in some cases, if you have an electronic wallet (e-wallet) set up, you'll have an opportunity to get your money sent right into that account.

What is just as important as determining which methods can be used to make a withdrawal is how quickly that withdrawal can be made. In fact, some casinos have a reputation for making slow payments, to the extent that it has become a genuine selling point for other casinos to use in their advertising. While deposits have a way of happening quickly, the withdrawals are not as rapid. Be prepared for that, and if such a thing is critical to you, then make it a major component of your decision-making when it comes to which casino you want to deposit your money with. If they tout themselves as having "lightning-fast withdrawals," take a look and see what their definition of "lightning-fast" really is.

Whatever the speed level, keep in mind that there is almost always going to be a limit as to how much you can take out of your account during a day's or week's period of time. That's generally because casinos are concerned about their cash flow at any given time. Although you want to "break the bank," you can't do that literally!
