Rewards for Canada to Use Specific Deposit Methods

Deposit Method Rewards

Deposit method rewards and bonuses are another great way to get more every time you add money to your online casino account. These rewards are not just for new players either which is great because it means that you can get up to 15% extra whenever you add funds to your account just by using one of the payment methods listed at certain casinos. To take advantage of these great offers you need to know exactly what to be on the lookout for and also how to claim them. Everything you need to know can be found on this page.

Deposit Method Rewards Explained

Some casinos go out of their way to ensure that they always have ways for their customers to get more. One of these is through the payment methods that are available. In a bid to help their players make better choices, a lot of casinos will reward them for choosing e-wallets. This means that if you use one of their methods such as Skrill (Moneybookers), Instadebit or Ukash, for example, you can claim an additional bonus, up to 15% in some cases, when you make your deposit. These rewards are usually listed on the promotions or the banking page of the casino website and there are some terms and conditions that will apply such as a minimum deposit amount so it is wise to read these before claiming the offer. As mentioned, these offers are available to all players and they can be redeemed each and every time funds are added to your account.

E-Wallet Bonus Types

There are a number of e-wallets that you can choose from if you want to get your hands on some extra free credits and details are provided below.

Instadebit is the most popular online casino e-wallet in Canada. It is an online account that you can be used to make deposits and withdrawals from your casino account via your bank account. It is very simple to setup and get approved. Once the Instadebit account is active, players simply select this option in the cashier section and supply the account number. You will find select casinos offer an Instadebit bonus up to 15% for each and every deposit, on top of any other bonus. These are fairly attractive offers for simply using this payment method over credit cards.

Since the departure of Moneybookers in Canada, E-Check has risen in popularity as a preferred method to deposit and withdraw funds. Similar to Instadebit, E-Check has very low transaction fees in comparison to credit cards, so Canadian gambling sites offer an extra 10-15% E-Check bonus with every deposit as well. We rate e-Check and Instadebit virtually the same, with a slight edge going to the latter in terms of reputation and company background, but both are great alternatives to credit.

Ukash is another online payment provider that is based in the UK but becoming very popular in Canada. You don't need a credit of debit card for this service and instead all you have to do is purchase a Ukash voucher for the amount you require from any store that displays the PayPoint sign. The Ukash bonus offered by online casinos is usually between 5 and 10% on all your deposits. The bonuses are not as high as either of the previous two alternatives, but better than credit cards.

Skrill/Paypal/Neteller - Not Accepted in Canada - Over the years, e-wallets have made their fortune in the online gambling industry until they became too big and too visible. It's an ironic fate, all of the biggest payment processing companies have closed their doors to countries without a fully regulated market such as the UK. Skrill which used to be called Moneybookers is the most recent e-wallet to exit Canada in 2013. Prior to Moneybookers dominance, Neteller was the global leader in gaming transactions after it filled the void of Paypal banning all online gambling deposits. However, Neteller banned Canada back in 2007. Although many people still search for a Paypal casino bonus, the world's largest e-wallet stopped accepting all gambling-related transactions in 2003 - a voluntary decision that cost the company over $16m in transactions/year. In 2010, the company started catering to fully regulated and compliant markets, but unfortunately Canada is not one of them. As such, we are not eligible to receive special rewards for using Skrill, Neteller or Paypal.

Claiming A Deposit Method Bonus

Like each deposit method bonus, each casino that offers them will differ too. It is important to read all the terms and conditions and understand exactly what you need to do to redeem the offer before you add money to your account. In the majority of cases, you will be required to use a coupon code which will be placed in the cashier section of the casino. Some establishments may require that you email the customer support team to claim the bonus and it may take up to 48 hours for your free credits to be added to your account. All the information should be clearly printed on the website so be sure to check it out first if you want to take advantage of these great offers.
