1. Credit/debit card.

It is very probable that most of us are the owners of a credit or debit card. Depositing with the card is a fast method to bring new funds to your player account. The processing is almost instant so you can immediately use the new funds.

The commissions are usually pretty small, being different from one bank to another (the bank that emitted the card)

The cards that are recommended for this transactions: Our recommendation would be VISA Electon card,  We don’t recommend using Mastercard type cards because, although they allow loading your player account, the withdrawals cannot be processed with these types of cards.

2. Moneybookers.
