For quite a while there were only a number of online bingo brands that accepted Paypal as a payment option for depositing money into your account; we first saw Ladbrokes and Tombola offer this option. However fairly recently we have seen all the Dragonfish networked brand add Paypal to their depositing methods and as of tomorrow (1st March 2012) Gala Bingo accepts Paypal as well. This option for funding gaming accounts is popular with many an online bingo player but is it a little late in the day for Gala Bingo?
With all of the Dragonfish brands and many of the Virtue Fusion networked sites accepting this payment option for quite some time now are Gala Bingo running a little late in this race? It something we see time and time again in the world of online bingo, where one brand will lead, the others eventually follow and this is certainly true of Paypal at Gala Bingo.
A number of players here at BallsUp HQ have used Paypal to fund various online accounts but after talking to the team, the only site anyone has ever processed a withdrawal from using this method is Tombola. The player in question found using Paypal for both depositing and withdrawing really simple with the following feedback:
Although it takes slightly longer to make a deposit because you have to login to your bingo account, visit the cashier, login to your Paypal account, approve the payment and then it’s in your account – it’s literally a couple of minutes rather than seconds using a credit/debit card. Processing withdrawals is easy too and when using Paypal you have two options:
- Withdrawal to bank 3-5 days – no charge
- Withdrawal to bank 1 – 2 – £5 charge
Are you going to give Paypal a try at Gala Bingo?
