Here at GoWin we're often talking about how great mobile deposits are. Whilst we do offer a complete range of depositing options at the casino, we like to big up phone billing as it's sometimes overlooked, in favour of bigger e-wallet brands. However, if you've not even tried to deposit via SMS at our casino, then we do think your missing out. As well as being easy to use and incredibly secure, mobile deposits can also save you time.
No one likes to waste time faffing around with complicated banking, especially when it's cutting into your gaming time! So, today we've compiled a list of five ways in which mobile deposits will get you playing your favourite games faster than ever before. Read on to find out more, and then head over to the casino and revel in your new found knowledge.
1. Deposit Via SMS
Mobile deposits allow you to deposit via your phone – duh! This immediately makes things quicker as it means that all it takes is an SMS message and your casino account will be funded. Other depositing methods take much longer, as they are dependent on external factors, for example your bank transferring the money.
This can, at best, take a few minutes, or at worst take a few days. In addition, bank transfers can sometimes take much longer on public holidays, or at the weekend – which is prime gaming time!
All in all, a mobile deposit can be made in a matter of seconds, as sending a text is much quicker than having to make a money transfer. This saves you precious time and meaning you can play your favourite games sooner.
2. No Lengthy Sign Up Process
Signing up to stuff is the bane of an internet user's life. Whether it's being forced to register to get free wifi, or trying to purchase something from an online store, the internet always seems to want you to create an account. This is also the case with e-wallet services, such as Neteller or Skrill.
This can be a very time consuming process, as you will need to input your full bank details, your home address, and create a username and password. In addition, services like PayPal will cut into your gaming time even further, as they'll ask you to validate the account by depositing a small amount into your bank and then asking you to quote the pin code they sent with it.
Mobile deposits don't require you to do any of this. You don't even need to supply an email or create a username. Simply input your phone number, and the service will do the rest! No forms to fill out, no lengthy bank details to input. As the deposit is being made via your phone bill, everything is already taken care of.
3. You Don't Need Internet Connection
Second only to painstakingly long sign up processes, being unable to find a good connection is another common nightmare for regular internet users. We've all been there, whether it's being stuck in a cafe without wifi, or running out of data on your phone, having no internet connection sucks! This is made all the more annoying by the fact that nearly everything requires a solid internet connection to function properly, e-wallet services included.
In contrast, mobile deposits don't need an internet connect at all. As they are made via SMS message, all you need is a decent mobile signal to make the payment. This saves time when you're on the go, as searching out a decent wifi hotspot can take forever!
4. All Mobile Networks Accept It
Many people avoid mobile deposits as they're scared to rack up costs on their monthly phone bill and get in trouble with their network provider. Being sensible with your spending is always a good idea, but many people don't know that all UK phone networks accept Boku payments, and will have no problem with you paying for stuff in this way.
Whilst this isn't an immediate time-saver, it does mean that you've probably already got a payment method right in the palm of your hand! This means you can save time on trying to work out the ins and outs of other methods and weighing up the pros and cons of each service.
5. You Don't Need A Credit Card
Last but by no means least, is the fact that you can use Boku without even having a credit or debit card. It's one of major advantages that mobile deposits have over other methods and it's definitely a time-saver. Not only does it mean that you'll never be asked to input your card details, but it also means that if you don't have a bank account you won't be forced into setting one up just for mobile gaming.
Mobile deposits are generally made using your mobile phone bill, but pay-as-you-go users can also make payments via Boku by using their existing phone credit. This means that you can top-up your phone with cash at a shop, and then use it online to play your favourite games. It also means that if you've lost your bank card, you needn't worry about waiting for a new card to arrive before you can get back to visiting the casino.
