How to Deposit at an Online Casino?

Choosing the right deposit method for you is a combination of a few key factors:
- Payment Speed – is it instant or the transfer takes more than a 24h
- Transfer fees – will you be charged a fee upon making the deposit
- Can you Withdraw with the same method that you deposited with
These are the 3 key elements you need to take into consideration when choosing the best suitable Deposit method for you.
Deposit Options for players in India
There are a few very popular deposit methods that you can use from India to deposit at an online casino. We will review the top-performing and most secure payment methods that you can choose from.
Depositing with VISA or MasterCard from India
VISA and Mastercard are one of the most trusted credit/debit card providers in the world. Most of our offered casinos provide the option to deposit via VISA/MasterCard credit or debit cards online.
Unfortunately, there will be fees applied to your deposit in rupees if you are using a VISA or Mastercard. The fees can vary between 3-6% depending on your card provider. Important to note is that the casino does NOT charge you, the fees come from either your issuing bank or due to currency exchange rates (e.g. you deposit in INR but the casino charges you in USD or EUR). The currency exchange rates carry every day so it is practically impossible to state the exact fee.
The fees either appear on your card statement as a separate transaction or you are simply charged more for the deposit. For example, say you deposit 1000 INR with your VISA/Master card, but in your card/bank statement you will see a charge of 1050 INR >> meaning you were charged 50 INR or 5% extra for this transaction.
Depositing with Skrill or Neteller in Rupees
Skrill and Neteller are very popular online payment methods for depositing at an online casino from India. Did you know that they are owned by the same company – Paysafe? That is why they are almost identical in their specifications and for this reason we review them together.
Regarding the fees that we have stated as “Free” for Neteller and Skrill, we are referring to no fees are charged when you deposit from your Neteller/Skrill account to the respective casino. There are fees charged when you top up/add funds to your Neteller account – either 2.5% + any currency exchange fees if your Neteller account is in a currency different from INR.
Depositing with Astropay Card from India
