How to Withdraw at Online Casinos

Obviously the whole point of making a deposit and playing in an online casino is to eventually take some of the money out, hopefully (for your sake) with a profit. So how do you withdraw your money? Well, it is not a complicated process, though, as you can imagine, it is not as easy as making deposits.

You can go through the casino software and make a withdrawal request, or you can go through the banking department on the website. There is usually a customer service number that is available. They will lay out the options and the restrictions for you, and let you know how long it is going to take. Sometimes you may even be able to get the money back the same way you deposit it, though this is not always the case.

Possible Withdrawal Limit Restrictions

What you will find as you proceed with deposits and withdrawals, while you may be able to put a large amount of money into an online casino account, you may find a different story when you try to take it out. That is not because the casino is looking to cheat you; it is because they are very careful to manage their cash flow, and naturally they want to keep you in the fold as long as they can. Whatever the motivation, there are going to be restrictions as to how much you can withdraw your money during any 24-hour period, and that is something you should be prepared for.

About Withdrawing Using Checks at Online Casinos

You can receive your funds from an online casino by way of a check. The way it works is relatively simple. You will contact the casino and request a withdrawal. You may be able to specifically request that your money come by this method, or it will be a reflection of what their policy is. When a check is sent, it may involve a payment processor, but you are not going to be subject to a fee as you would if you are receiving a bank wire. Of course, if you are in the U.S., a check may be problematic, since it is mandatory that it is going to involve a bank. So be mindful of that.

About Wire Transfer Withdrawing from Online Casinos

Wire transfers which go from a casino's bank or payment processor to your bank is usually an easy way to receive funds. This might be the way business is done if you made your initial deposit with a casino, because they will already have your banking information. Again, as we have mentioned before, customers within the United States might find problems with this. if a casino is going to send you a wire, they would customarily route it through one or more payment processors so that the source can't really be discerned, since, after all, if it comes right from an online casino company it will throw up a red flag. Those doing business through bank wire will incur a fee, and if that wire is international in nature, the fee could be greater.

About Alternative Banking Option Withdrawing

In this particular case, "alternative banking" could mean using an electronic wallet, and once again, the jurisdiction will come into play. If you are using an e-wallet as that conduit between yourself and the casino, you can often be paid right back through the e-wallet, and the fees are reasonable.

One method that is increasingly popular when it comes to withdrawals is that of a gift card, which can have money added to it and be replenished on the other end. United States customers, and the casinos that serve them, have found success using this approach. Also, some casinos have started to use, Bitcoin, which is an alternative currency that is worldwide and facilitates anonymous transactions, so no financial institutions are involved.
