Moneybookers (currently being rebranded Skrill) is an ewallet similar to PayPal but it was designed to be gambling friendly, while to put it bluntly, PayPal wasn’t. Moneybookers provides users with a safe method to deposit on bingo sites that doesn’t include divulging your bank card details to bingo sites.
First you upload your funds to Moneybookers, which can be done via bank card, bank transfer, online bank transfer (which is instant) or cheque. Once the money is in your account you are free to deposit at any bingo site that accepts Moneybookers deposits simply using your username and password.
Any winnings generated would typically be paid back onto your Moneybookers account and can be withdrawn via bank transfer, bank card, cheque or Moneybookers Prepaid Mastercard should you apply for one.
Moneybookers is a trustworthy UK operation that is regulated by the Financial Services Authority and its headquarters are in London. According to their website they have processed more than 30 trillion pounds worth of transactions to date and are listed on the FTSE.
