Depositing/Withdrawing from Online Bookies

    I’m about to take the plunge and sign up to an online bookmaker so I need your help with a the following question:

    What’s the best way of depositing/withdrawing funds from my online account? I don’t want to link my bank a/c to my bookies account so do I need to sign up to a money transfer service like PayPal or Moneybookers before I open an online account.

    I know Paddy Power has the option of adding a Cash Card to your account so is this the best option to take if you don’t want your bank manager knowing anything about your gambling habits! I know the max withdrawal is €500 with a Cash Card but I like the idea of depositing/withdrawing funds using those handy touchscreen machines they now have in all Paddy Power shops.

    Best one to sign up too is netteller, you can order a card for your account and use as a debit card etc

    The odds on those machines are inferior to Paddy Powers actual prices.
    Even the machines in Ladbrokes and Boyles are the same.

    Paysafe cards for funding skrill account.
    Then get a skrill MasterCard to withdraw cash instantly at ATM or use it in shops also.

    Your bank account is never touched.

    So you need a Paysafe account and a skrill account and then apply for a skrill MasterCard, costs a 10er or so a year.

    One way of completely avoiding the banks

    Skrill are doing a lot of changes in 2016. More charges and heftier charges. Lodging in shops more attractive now.

    Is the skrill 1 tap gone from bet365 or not working anymore for others?

    Have to lodge to skrill first (at a cost) now and then on again.

    More charges.
