One of the first things to consider when opening an online casino account is how you are going to make your deposits and withdrawals which many years ago was actually quite difficult but today there are many choices and one of the better ones is Neteller casino. Neteller is an online money transfer specialist started in 1999 and now operating in over 160 countries; it is in fact a brand name of Optimal Payments™ Plc and is authorized and regulated by the Financial Services Authority of the UK which makes it just fine for use in Ireland as well. Neteller is what is commonly known as an e-wallet which in some ways resembles an online bank where you can deposit money and use it to pay for any sort of online transaction. One of the many advantages of an e-wallet such as Neteller is that you never need to disclose your credit card details to your supplier and that includes online casinos so instead of many vendors having your details with the risk that that entails you only need give the details to Neteller. A possible second advantage is that your bank also has no record of your transactions other than your payments to Neteller and a third advantage is that the online casinos do make any charge for using Neteller whereas if you use a credit card directly they often will; the cash is also instantly available in your account to play your favourite casino games. It should be noted that Neteller casino is not a bank that you can get credit from, you need to have the money in your account in order to spend it but you can set up authority for Neteller to make transfers from your bank account to your e-wallet. All in all Neteller is a very efficient and safe way of funding your online casino account..
