Winner Adds PayPal Support for UK MarketPublished March 30, 2015 by Mike P
Winner’s various online betting channels will now accept PayPal for UK users who make deposits and withdrawals from spring 2015 onwards.
Winner is quickly rising in popularity as a multichannel gambling operator in the UK, covering betting channels such as sports betting, online casino, mobile, live, poker, bingo, and other. In attracting punters across a multitude of channels, it is crucial that Winner is able to accommodate their payment requirements, whether for deposits or withdrawals. As a result, Winner has recent announced the addition of PayPal support for its UK users.
PayPal Popular for Online Bettors
PayPal is widely known as the original e-wallet, as it emerged to provide a safer alternative to VISA and MasterCard at a time when both payments lacked the robust web security that they possess today. First associated with having an eBay account, PayPal soon rose to become a popular form of payment for online transactions. Consequently, there are millions of people in the UK with a PayPal account. Winner has widely added PayPal support to improve convenience for those users.
How PayPal Works
As described above, PayPal is categorised as an e-wallet. This essentially means that PayPal is a digital account with which you can send and receive money in a variety of currencies. You set up your account by linking either a bank account or debit/credit card. PayPal will request money from your payment source whenever you need to complete a transaction. PayPal is highly secure because it eliminates the need for you to enter your financial information when making transactions.
Winner Competing in Restricted UK Market
The UK online gambling market has become much more restricted since the launch of new legislation by the UK Gambling Commission in November 2014. Many operators have chose to leave the market because it has become more competitive. However, Winner is making efforts to improve its fortunes by improving the user experience. You can now deposit or withdraw using PayPal across all Winner channels.
