Depositing at Online Casinos via Mobile Phone

Many online casinos now give customers the option to fund their accounts directly from their mobile phones, with the money being added to the monthly bill or taken from their pay as you go credit.

Over the last few years, playing casino games on mobile phones has become more and more popular, and as technology continues to develop, mobile casinos have evolved along with it. From basic applications that ran a small number of games to multi-function sites that have a full range where players don't even need to set up an account at a desktop version, mobile casinos are unrecognisable from what they were. One important development is the ability for players to fund their accounts directly through their mobile service provider without needing to use a credit card, online payment processor or bank transfer.

SMS Payments

This secure and reliable payment method is now accepted by lots of sites, including Pocket Fruity, Power Slots, Dream Palace Casino and Pocket Casino. In effect, players are adding the amount deposited into their casino account to their phone bill or taken from their pay-as-you-go balance. To pay by SMS they need to send their number to the casino site, and will receive a text message to confirm that this method of payment has been set up.

Once the payer is ready to deposit, they simply select SMS payment and confirm that they wish the payment to be added to their mobile bill. Someone using pay-as-you-go will see the amount taken from their credit pretty much straight away, while someone on a monthly contract will see the amount added to their next bill.

So long as there have been no issues with previous bill payments, or there is money on a pay-as-you-go account, the payments are normally automatically approved.

Safety and Convenience

As no third-party processor is involved, this method of payment is particularly suitable for those without credit or debit cards, or anyone concerned about online security. It's also a very quick method of payment to set up and use, while for extra security in some countries, including the UK, government agencies oversee the scheme.
