Depending on your situation and also on how desperate you are to get money into your online casino account should determine which kind of online casino banking method you should ideally use. For example, if you are not so bothered about waiting one or two days for your money to arrive, you could send money via Direct Bank Transfer, which can take up to 72 hours to arrive.
Alternatively, most online casinos also accept bank cheques/checks, so you could send them a cheque and this can take about the same amount of time, or even longer to clear. These much slower banking methods are ideal alternatives for players who prefer not to use credit cards or debit cards online and they are perfectly secure payment solutions which will allow you to top up your online casino account whenever you want.
When it comes to withdrawing, you can also request to receive your funds via cheque as well. However, if you are like most of us and can’t wait to get money into your account, then you should really opt for one of several other perfectly secure methods such as credit cards, debit cards, e-wallets or prepaid cards. More and more options have become available over the past few years and most of these reliable methods will process your transactions in an instant.
You cannot make a withdrawal with a prepaid card, which means that you would have to search for some other kind of reliable method when you intend to withdraw your winnings. For the players who prefer NOT to use a credit or debit card online, using an e-wallet is the only other real alternative. e-wallets are the perfect solution for online gamblers because they allow you to deposit and withdraw, plus they are free to sign up to and they are really easy to use.
When you visit an online casino today, you can expect to find the following most reliable banking options (which we have listed below) when you go to the cashier and if you want to use one of these methods, all you need to do is click on that payment solution’s logo and you should instantly receive further instructions on how you can sign up for that particular method and also how you can actually use that method.
Some of the most common and the most secure banking methods available for online casino gamblers today include Visa, Visa Electron, Visa Debit, MasterCard, Maestro, Solo, Laser, Switch, NETELLER, Skrill, Ukash, Click2Pay, paysafecard, ECO, UseMyFunds, Instadebit, ClickandBuy, EziPay, entropay, Instant Banking, Citadel Direct, giropay, MyPayLinQ, Diners Club, Amex, Wire Transfers, PayPal, Western Union, Courier, eCheck, POLi, Ticket Premium, iDeal and UseMyBank.

WMS Gaming recently launched its second ever Bruce Lee themed slot machine called Bruce Lee: Dragon’s Tale. This new slot is also already being referred to simply as Bruce Lee 2. It has four sets of reels with a total of 80 winning paylines. This is a non-downloadable slot which has a Symbol Transfer Feature, Wild Symbols, Scatter Symbols and a Free Spins Bonus Round.
Rival Gaming has recently launched a new slot machine called Gnome Sweet Gnome. This new slot has 5 reels, 50 winning paylines and a simple second screen bonus round where players get to take part in a spot of gardening. No download is required to play on this instant flash slot either.
The latest slot from Net Entertainment (NetEnt) is called Twin Spin. This new slot combines a traditional Vegas theme with modern Video Slot technology. Identical ‘Twin Reels’ can multiply in either direction so that you can end up with up to as many as five matching reels on certain lucky spins. This new NetEnt slot is a ‘243 Ways to Win’ slot machine and it can be launched instantly in your browser.
NextGen Gaming has launched a new 5 reeled slot called Potion Commotion. It features Wild Symbols, Scatter Symbols and you can win up to 20 Free Spins with a maximum 3X Multiplier. The Potion Commotion slot has 20 winning paylines and it can also be launched over an instant flash casino platform.
Playtech launched three new slot machine games in November and they all have completely different themes. One of those Playtech slots is called Piggies and the Wolf. Big prizes can be won during the Huff ‘n Puff Shuffle Feature which is triggered when the stacked wolf symbol entirely covers reel 5 (the reel furthest on the right). Once triggered, the Wolf will appear on his motorcycle and blow all of the symbols around to generate a winning combination.
The main bonus round is called the Blow the House Down Bonus and this is played out on a second screen. The more houses the big bad wolf manages to blow down, the bigger your prize will be. You can also win some great prizes during the Free Spins bonus round thanks to the Pigs Running Wild Feature.
One of the other brand new online slots from Playtech is a branded Marvel slot called X-Men 50 Lines. This new slot is just as exciting as all of the other branded Marvel slots from Playtech and it also has four different Progressive Jackpots to play for.
The other new slot from Playtech is based on the hit US TV show from the 1970s/1980s called The Love Boat. This one has 5 reels and 25 winning paylines and you can win additional prizes from within a Free Spins bonus round, but also from a second screen bonus game called the Match Up Bonus. This slot even has a massive jackpot up for grabs called the Dream Cruise Jackpot.

Two NetEnt slots also recently made it into the spotlight when the Mega Fortune slot paid out €3.2 Million on Tuesday October 22nd and the Hall of Gods paid out an eye-watering €6.4 Million just a few days later. The first of the two NetEnt winners came from a Finnish online casino called Play among Friends and the second prize was awarded to a Scottish player over at BetVictor Casino.
“I have been a member of BetVictor for a long time and I bet across their sportsbook and poker games but one day I thought I would give the casino slots a try too, as the jackpots are so tempting; but I never dreamt I could actually win so much,” said the player from Aberdeenshire, Scotland. This was the largest ever single prize paid out to a registered member at BetVictor Casino. €6.4M is approximately £5.4M.

Two of these new slots were released at numerous Microgaming powered casinos on October 9th, 2013. Paradise Found has yet to be released.
The two new mobile slot machines from Microgaming included Halloweenies and What a Hoot, and both of these slots were already available on desktop at most of today’s Microgaming powered casinos. “We recognise the importance of not only providing fresh and regular new content, but also timely content, which will spark interest from our operators’ players,” said Microgaming’s Head of Product Channels, Neill Whyte.
“Halloweenies and What a Hoot are two perfect additions to the HTML5 platform; these new slots, which are fully compatible with iOS7, will allow our operators to form exciting promotions and marketing campaigns for Halloween,” added Whyte.
On October 17th, Microgaming then increased its portfolio of Multi-Player games by introducing a Halloween themed slot called Lucky Witch. This fun-filled slot has actually been around since Halloween 2011. It has 5 reels, 15 winning paylines and several immersive bonus rounds for players to enjoy, plus it also has a Free Spins bonus round and Stacked Wild Symbols to help boost your balance even further.
Microgaming’s Multi-Player Games spokesperson, David Reynolds, commented on the release of Lucky Witch as a Multi-Player Game, “This is a timely addition to our multi-player platform. With Halloween just around the corner, our operators’ players will enjoy this new tournament slot. Furthermore, our new bonus prize feature adds to the extensive flexibility of tournament setup for operators. This will provide an ideal tool for the acquisition and retention of players.” All of the comments found in this article were taken directly from the Microgaming website.
