Top 5 Myths About Depositing and Withdrawing at Mobile Poker Sites
If you want to play video poker or table poker on your mobile, there’s one thing you will have to do first: make a deposit, so you have funds available to play. And what about if you win? Then you’ll need to use your mobile to withdraw those funds using your preferred method. A lot of untruths abound when it comes to using a mobile to complete banking at mobile casinos though, which often puts people off doing so. We are here to right those wrongs, and let you know the truth behind some of the big mobile casino banking myths…
Myth 1: Mobile banking isn’t safe
If you are living in 2001, this might well be the case. However, we are in 2014 and people use their mobiles to complete financial transactions all the time. All of the major mobile poker sites, such as PokerStars and mFortune, have robust systems in place to ensure that your personal details are safe. What’s more, these systems are scrutinised by outside professionals, such as various gambling regulatory bodies, to further ensure that they are secure. The only warning we would give is to make sure you complete your banking while connected to a trusted Wi-Fi network, or via 3G.
Myth 2: Mobile banking costs money
There are absolutely no charges for mobile banking, either from your bank or from the mobile poker site you are using. And why should there be? You are only doing exactly the same thing you’d be doing on your laptop or computer! In fact, the whole process of playing poker on your mobile – from the first deposit, via playing games, through to withdrawals – is completely free of charges. The only thing to pay for is the data, but you’d be paying for an internet connection if playing at home as well…
Myth 3: Mobile banking only allows credit/debit cards
This is perhaps the biggest misconception of them all, as mobile poker sites accept an absolutely massive array of different payment methods. Sure, most people do opt to use their credit or debit card as their payment method, but they could also use services such as PayPal, Ukash, Instadebit, Bitcoin and many more! We know of more than 20 different payment methods accepted at mobile poker sites, and more are being added on a regular basis. So, if you don’t want to use a credit/debit card, there will be an alternative for you.
Myth 4: Withdrawals take ages
Withdrawals take exactly the same amount of time as they would do if withdrawing at home on a computer. Different withdrawal methods do have differing times, however most will take less than 24 hours to reach your bank account or e-wallet. What will take longer is if you wait until you get home to start the transaction. Don’t waste time – initiate the withdrawal on your mobile today!
Myth 5: Mobile banking is inconvenient
How can mobile banking be inconvenient? You have the means to complete deposits and withdrawals literally at your fingertips, so why not use it? It is now the case that the vast majority of people use their phones for a huge range of different purposes – including depositing and withdrawing funds at mobile poker sites – and this can surely only be a convenient thing? At Droid Poker, we see heading home to complete these tasks as inconvenient, not being able to do them any time you want to!
