Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Pay: These are all the rage these days with more and more people around the globe making purchases via their mobile phone. Casinos have now gotten into the act with pay by mobile slots, blackjack and poker, though the experience will be a bit different via the Web.
With the online casinos, one would pay via their phone bill as opposed to waving a phone before a device.
Amounts can be charged to your mobile phone bill or pre-pay account.
If you are using a prepaid device, you’ll also want to ensure that you have enough remaining credit to cover your deposit.
More and more people are gambling directly from their smartphone’s at work, a recent study found.
Approximately 55 percent of gamblers play casino games on their smartphones.
Today’s smart phone online casinos feature high quality graphics and excellent sound effects, but the ability to make a deposit or request a payout via one’s credit card or other method has not always been seamless.
Remarkably, mobile casinos were all the rage at the onset of the Internet gambling revolution. But unfortunately, the mobile integration came well over a decade before truly taking off despite the early interest. Paying by one’s phone bill was also an option via a select few payment processors, none of which really gained a foothold in the Web gambling sector. The option existed only briefly.
