Skrill

Please note that as of 1 December 2017, Australians can no longer transact with Skrill at online casinos. We recommend Credit Cards and Bitcoin.

Skrill is an online payment processing company that gives not only Australians, but also people from other parts of the world the opportunity pay for products and services safely, securely, and anonymously. Skrill has plenty of consumer friendly products and services in its portfolio. One of these is a mobile app that can be downloaded for free and the other is a prepaid MasterCard that can be used to make payments anytime and anywhere.

Skrill Overview

When Skrill was launched in 2001 as Moneybookers, it became Europe's first online payment processing company to receive the Financial Conduct Authority's (FCA) approval and license. It signed a partnership deal with eBay in 2010, a move that enabled it to release its prepaid MasterCard. That year, it also set into motion a lengthy rebranding procedure to enable it to better its product and expand into unexplored territories.

The company not only became Skrill in 2013, but also achieved the rank of UK's fastest growing company. The next year, the company acquired Ukash and PaySafeCard. Skrill is today available in more than 200 countries all over the world and offers its services in more than 40 currencies.

Here is a list of various advantages of using Skrill:

Discounts and Offers - Many online merchants, including online casinos, pamper customers who use Skrill with discounts and bonuses. For example, online casinos reward customers who load their accounts using Skrill with an extra deposit bonus of 10% or 15%.

Rewards for Loyalty - Skrill rewards loyal consumers through the Skrill VIP Club. Those who use Skrill continuously will be pampered with low fees, special offers, better customer support, and an extra layer of security.

Skrill's Prepaid MasterCard - Skrill users can apply for and obtain the Skrill Prepaid MasterCard, which can be used to make payments at any merchant who accepts MasterCard. Users do not even have to submit verification documents to obtain this prepaid card, which can be used to gain access to funds in the Skrill eWallet from any ATM across the globe.

Affordable - Skrill is highly affordable. Aussie online casino players can use Skrill to load their casino gaming accounts absolutely free of charge. Skrill does charge fees for some of its services, but they are highly affordable.

Using Skrill in Australia

Skrill can be used in Australia just as it is used in any other part of the world. Aussies who use Skrill can enjoy the following advantages:

Play Online Casino Games - Skrill gives Aussie players a chance to play their favourite pokies at any casino in the world even if they don't have a credit card or bank account. Since Skrill is accepted at all the leading online casinos around the world, Aussie players will never be left out of the fun.

Fast and Anonymous - Skrill presents Australian residents a fast, secure, and anonymous way to pay for products and services online.

Control Your Finances - Aussie players can use just one Skrill account to completely control their finances. They can not only make payments, but also receive funds into their Skrill accounts. They can then use the Skrill prepaid MasterCard to withdraw their winnings from an ATM.

How to Fund Your Skrill Account

Australian players have several ways to load their Skrill eWallets. Some of these methods are free while some are charged.

  • Bank Transfer - Free
  • POLi - 1%
  • Neteller - 3%
  • Swift - Free
  • Credit/debit cards - 1.9%
  • Amex - 2.5%

How to Deposit Using Skrill

Using Skrill as a casino banking method is incredibly easy and here is a step-by-step guide for those who have never done it:

  • Register an account at Skrill. It is a simple procedure that includes email verification.
  • Register a real money account at any Australian friendly online casino that offers Skrill as a payment method.
  • Visit the casino cashier and select Skrill as your preferred banking method.
  • Click on the Skrill icon in the casino cashier, input the essential details in the form that appears, and then click on the confirm button.
  • When you hit the confirm button, you will be taken to your Skrill page, from where you can initiate the payment.
  • Funds will be instantly credited to your account.

How to Withdraw Using Skrill

Withdrawing your casino winnings using Skrill is just as easy as making a deposit. The withdrawal procedure is similar to the deposit procedure and the winnings, once approved by the online casino, will be instantly moved to your Skrill eWallet.

Skrill Costs and Timing

It's absolutely free to make casino deposits and withdrawals using Skrill, and the fund transfer is almost instantaneous. Online casinos usually take anywhere between 48 hours and three business days to process payouts.

Skrill, however, may charge for some of its services. Players can use Skrill to make online casino deposits for free. They can also receive money into their eWallet for free. Usually, it is free to load funds into one's Skrill eWallet although some methods are associated with a fee. Sending money from one's Skrill eWallet to another has a transaction fee of 1% with a cap imposed at €10. As long as consumers use Skrill at least once a year, they will not be charged any administrative fee.

Once their casino winnings reach their accounts, players can withdraw them to their bank accounts using SWIFT or Bank Transfer. While the former costs AUD5.80, the latter costs AUD8.07. Skrill also charges a currency conversion fee of 3.99%.
