Credit and Debit Cards

Credit and debit cards are by far one of the most popular choices at online casinos, accounting for about half of all payments.

The most common options are MasterCard, Visa and Maestro.

American Express is not commonly used in online casinos because it is an American card and the United States has placed a ban on online gambling.

Prepaid Cards and Vouchers

Prepaid cards, vouchers and coupons have also become popular due to their excellent safety features.

The most popular option is Paysafecard.

Nearly every online casino accepts this for deposits.

Paysafecard is especially popular due to its speed and safety: no one can ever hack you or get access to your money as the card is meant for just a one-time payment.

Electronic Wallets

Electronic wallets have become so popular that nearly all casinos accept some of the top e-wallets for both deposits and withdrawals.

Plus, e-wallet payments are extremely fast – most of the time, funds will be available within 24 hours.

The following 3 electronic wallets are especially common at New Zealand online casinos:

  • PayPal – PayPal is one of the most popular online payment methods across the whole world. However, not all online casinos accept PayPal. The company has some of the most stringent rules when it comes to online gambling, so PayPal online casinos tend to have extremely high standards.
  • Neteller – Neteller is one of the most common e-wallets used for online gambling. It was originally created as a way to make payments to online casinos and now, some online casinos process about 80% of their payments via Neteller. Neteller online casinos are very common in New Zealand too.
  • Skrill – Skrill, originally called Moneybookers, belongs to the same company as Neteller and is also majorly known for online casino payments. Skrill has a high security level, and fast transactions and is accepted at most NZ casinos.

Bank Wire Transfers

All online casinos accept bank wire transfers – it's their preferred payment method.

Wire transfers are extremely secure and involve an identity check but as you might expect, wire transfers tend to take longer.

That's why some players might prefer online wallets, instead of waiting 5-7 business days for the wire transfer.

Instant Bank Transfers

Many modern online casinos use Trustly to provide instant bank transfers.

With Trustly, players don't have to make the bank transfer from the bank itself.

Instead, Trustly acts like a gateway that connects players to the bank and works as a bridge between the bank and casinos.

Instant bank transfers are used for both deposits and withdrawals and in both cases, funds are deposited on the bank account instantly.

Apple Pay and Google Pay

Apple Pay and Google Pay are relatively new at New Zealand online casinos but you can already find both options at some high-end online casinos.

With both of these, you can use your mobile device's wallet system to approve casino payments.

Though neither Apple Pay nor Google Pay can be used for withdrawals, these are highly secure payment methods for deposits (plus, transactions are lightning-fast).
