Paypal is currently one of the most used ewallets online and for the longest time Paypal was not a payment option at any online poker room or casino. Times are changing though and certain gambling sites are beginning to allow their players to make deposits via paypal. This is great news for both online poker and casino players everywhere because paypal is by far one of the easiest and safest payment methods online.
Online poker rooms that are becoming paypal friendly include Pacific Poker, Betfair Poker, Party Poker, Ladbrokes Poker, Paddy Power Poker and PKR. You may be able to tell that all of these paypal poker rooms do not accept United States players. This means if you live in America you are still out of luck when it comes to depositing with paypal.
Some leading online casino’s that are now accepting paypal deposits include William Hill casino, Paddy Power casino, Betfair casino and PKR casino. These paypal casino sites also do not accept United States players, which leads me to believe that paypal is trying to keep its distance from sites that do accept Americans. This is likely because many payment processing companies have found themselves in hot water after allowing American players to make online gambling deposits through them.
Even though Americans cannot use paypal for online poker or casino transactions it’s still great for the rest of the world that paypal has begun its move into the online gambling industry.
