Using PayPal in online casinos
Most casino players have taken advantage of how easy it is to make deposits at online casinos via PayPal. You also qualify for bonuses by using PayPal since it is connected to your bank account or credit card, giving an added level of security, not just for you but for the casino as well.
Using PayPal is fast, and you can start playing at your chosen online casino instantly. All you need to do is select the amount of money you wish to deposit into your account in the casino's cashier. The money is then instantly debited from the PayPal account and subsequently credits the player account. It is a secure service with the added security of Canadian casinos
using appropriate measures to encrypt their data to avoid hackers and third parties from accessing the player's personal details.
Opening a PayPal Account
The process of opening a Paypal account is simple
, and it can be done on any device, including via an Apple iOS or an Android device. You can use your phone's browser or download the official PayPal application from either the Apple Store or the Google Play Store.
When you open your PayPal account you will need to present a national ID or a passport so PayPal can verify your age. They will also need basic information like your address and email.
To use your PayPal account, you can preload it with funds or just top it up as you go along and using it.
Using PayPal in Canadian casinos
At the time of writing it, Canadian casinos might indicate on their site that they accept PayPal, but PayPal itself isn't going to process payments to online casinos.
Due to a regulation affecting the payment provider, they will only handle payments to casinos on markets where gambling is regulated, but, as you are aware by now, the Canadian regulation isn't in place yet, making it a market where gambling isn't regulated, but it is legal.
