A increasing number of bingo players use Skrill bingo sites. Why? Well there are a number of reasons why this funding option is becoming more popular – particularly from a security point of view.
But what is Skrill? Skrill is an on-line wallet. So you can ‘fill’ or ’empty’ your wallet as and when you need to and use it to make on-line / digital payments and cash collections. Since their formation in 2001 they have become a well known and trusted leader in this market with more and more online businesses using their services.
What are the advantages of using Skrill bingo sites?
As mentioned above, security is a major reason why so many bingo players – and other online users – take advantage of Skrill. By using an on-line wallet you need only enter and store your banking details onto one site. This drastically reduces the chance of you becoming victim of a ‘hack’. And many of us simply don’t want to leave our personal financial details over numerous sites!
Money transfers are instant – both in and out. However – you do need to be aware that the vast majority of online bingo sites will only release your winnings when they have been authorised. This may take several days depending upon the site. But this can still potentially more than half the time it takes for your money to reach you.
Flexible & convenient.
The fact that money can be moved so quickly between all your Skrill bingo sites is extremely convenient. Many bingo players will play different sites depending upon current bingo promotions and offers. And by taking winnings from one and placing depositing instantly into another makes the whole operation so much easier and ties up less of your own money.
Although there are still many operators who don’t use the Skrill service, it can be seen below that most of the large and established bingo operators and bookmakers do.

Why don’t all bingo sites use Skrill?
From our point of view as players this would certainly make sense. It helps us and so surely is a benefit to the bingo operator? Which of course it is – but as a cost to their business. In other words, online businesses pay for the privilege of using Skrill.
Our hope is that as Skrill and other digital wallets become more popular then bingo sites will be forced into using them or lose valuable custom.
