Almost all of our featured sites accept direct bank transfer (also known as a wire transfer) to deposit money into your casino account, and some enable you to use this method for withdrawals as well (but not all, so check).
What drawbacks does a bank transfer have?
The most significant drawback of bank transfer is the time it takes to process transactions going both ways. For instance, it can take a deposit via wire transfer up to 3 working days to reach your casino account, and the same amount of time to make a withdrawal, remembering of course that you also need to add the casino’s processing time on top of this.
How safe is a bank transfer?
The direct bank transfers are very secure, but they don’t come with much privacy attached. Your dealings with your casino will appear on your bank statements in one form or another, and while for some this isn’t an issue, for many players it’s enough to make them seek alternative, faster payment methods instead.
