Skrill - Moneybookers

Skrill, formerly known as Moneybookers, is an online e-wallet service that mediates financial transactions across business entities and private individuals. Skrill is owned by Skrill Limited – a UK based company with over 700 employees.

Skrill was launched in 2002 with its online payment service. In the 10 years following its inception, they amassed over 30 million users across 200 countries. Their last reported revenue by the end of 2014 was $331 million, well ahead of its rival Neteller. However, this is not a concern for Neteller as their parent company Optimal Payment are in the process of acquiring Skrill in a deal involving over €1 billion.

Many business entities benefit from Skrill, but online casinos are the ones that benefit the most. Players that are unable to deposit via their bank accounts or other payment means can instead make their deposit to Skrill, and later use Skrill as a means of deposit and withdrawal.

If you are looking to start using Skrill as your means of processing transactions with online casinos, you won’t have to spend more than a few minutes creating your account, which is a fairly straightforward process. Make sure to select a currency which works for you, as you will not be able to change it later.

Fees

Skrill allows you to deposit to your account using credit, debit cards and more. Uploading funds via Maestro and Swift is completely free. Skrill Direct carries a 0.50% fee, while Sofort’s fee is 1.50%. American Express, Diners Club, JCB, Mastercard and VISA come with a 1.90% fee, similarly to Neteller. Last but not least, uploading funds via Paysafecard is available but not recommended, because of the 5.50% fee involved.

Withdrawing funds to your bank account, Swift or VISA card involves a fixed £2.10 fee.

Skrill Prepaid Mastercard and VIP benefits

Every Skrill user has the ability to apply for a Skrill Prepaid Mastercard. If your application is approved, your card will be mailed to you, and it can be used online and offline wherever a Mastercard is accepted. Moreover, you can use this card to withdraw from your local ATM. Withdrawing via an ATM involves a £1.28 fee. The annual card fee is £7.14. All other transactions relating to your card are free of charge.

Like most online casinos, Skrill boasts a VIP club reserved for the more active members, where the benefits are 24/7 VIP support, priority bank uploads, exclusive promotions, money back guarantee and a free prepaid card. The lowest tier of the VIP club imposes a €250 daily ATM withdrawal limit, a 1.25% card upload fee and a €2.95 bank withdrawal fee. As you progress higher up on the VIP ladder (Silver, Gold and Diamond), these fees will disappear and your withdrawal limits will increase. Moreover, the higher VIP tiers have benefits such as multiple account currencies and a personal account manager.

Skrill is the world’s leading e-wallet payment service, and for a good reason. They are a completely trusted and reliable means of transferring money, and are a great benefit to online casino players everywhere.
