Intro: The best online casinos are hugely popular because they make playing your old favorites and finding new casino games easy and convenient. Sure, you play for the fun of it but nothing beats winning real money. To do this, you need to learn all about casino deposits and withdrawals. It’s simple and easy – here’s how.

There are a few steps involved in making a deposit at an online casino. Once you’ve made your deposit, you can play your choice of casino games and make withdrawals when your winnings come in. It’s simple and easy to do, especially if you have a guide that sets it all out for you. Let’s get started with five simple steps to making a deposit.

How to make a casino deposit

To start playing online casino games for real money, you’ll need to put something in first. This will be your first deposit. You’ve already chosen a secure and reputable casino and followed the simple steps to opening an account. Now you’re ready to make your first deposit. You can deposit funds into your online gaming account, directly from your bank account, or use your preferred credit or debit card.

  1. Once you have created your account, you will be directed to the online cashier or cashier section.
  2. Choose your preferred payment method from those listed on-screen (we’ll go into more details about these once we’ve gone through these steps).
  3. If you haven’t already filled out personal details such as your address when you set up your account, you might be asked to do this now.
  4. Enter the amount you want to deposit and your account password.
  5. Hit “submit” or “deposit” and voila! – funds are transferred to your casino bankroll and you’re ready to start playing your choice of games. While some deposits are instant, other payments like bank transfers and cheques can take longer to process.

Payment Methods

As an online gambler, you can choose how you want to pay to play. Before deciding, consider the cost of using a particular payment method (credit/debit cards and bank transfers usually cost more), as well as the reputation of the institution that provides that method of payment. Consider how easy it is to transfer funds, including the length of time it takes to make deposits and withdrawals.

The best casinos with solid online reputations encrypt sensitive data on their sites to prevent theft of your personal information and credit card details. A reputable casino will always keep your personal account money separate from the casino’s operating costs. 

Here is our list of the most popular and secure payment methods used by our players.

VIP Preferred e-check

VIP Preferred™ ACH/e-Check is the preferred deposit method at You simply provide your driver’s license number, your bank’s routing number, and your account number. Funds will be transferred, directly, from your bank account to your BetMGM NJ account. This payment method is quick, simple, and easy to use.


The BetMGM Prepaid Play+ account is the preferred method for making instant deposits to your BetMGM account. To enroll online and fund your account using a credit card, debit card or bank transfer, all you have to do is log into your account and select “Prepaid Play+” from the Cashier. Keep in mind that additional costs and/or fees may be assessed by your card issuer in line with your cardholder agreement.

MasterCard and Visa

You can use your VISA or MasterCard credit or debit card to deposit into your BetMGM account. Before deciding to use this method, check with your bank because some banks do not process credit or debit card transactions for online gaming. There may also be additional costs or fees assessed by your card issuer – this will be set out in your cardholder agreement.


You can use your PayPal account to make a deposit via your PayPal Cash and PayPal Cash Plus account balance.

Electronic Transfer

You can use a pre-established online banking account with the “Bill Pay” function enabled to transfer funds to your BetMGM NJ account.


PayNearMe allows you to fund your BetMGM account with cash at local stores like 7-Eleven. You will have a PayCode sent to your email or phone, then go to your chosen store and use cash to make a deposit.


You can visit the cashier window at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey to fund your BetMGM account in cash. You will need to provide your government-issued ID and online gaming account information to make a deposit.


Like PayPal, Skrill is an e-wallet. You can sign up at to transfer funds to your BetMGM NJ account using a credit card or bank transfer. Keep in mind that Skrill will charge transaction fees when depositing funds into your Skrill account and withdrawing funds out of the account.

American Express

You can use your American Express-branded card to fund your account. Corporate travel cards, prepaid cards, small business cards, and bank co-branded cards will not be accepted. There may also be additional costs and/or fees – these will be set out in your cardholder agreement.

Deposit bonuses

A deposit or welcome bonus can be offered to new players when they register for the first time on a gambling site. Usually, you have to deposit your own funds before you can play with a welcome bonus. The reward can be an additional 50% or 100% of the first deposit you make into your site account, with a maximum bonus amount of course.

A deposit bonus will have certain conditions attached to it. This can be a wagering requirement (the number of times you must play before making a withdrawal from your online account), a maximum cashout amount, or you may be able to play only certain types of casino games with a welcome bonus. This is a great way to add something extra to your bankroll.

How to make a casino withdrawal

Withdrawing your winnings is easy. Trusted casinos will always ask for ID when you cashout to make sure you’re the legal age and haven’t been banned from the site. It’s unlikely that you’ll be charged a cash-out winnings withdrawal fee.

  1. Go to the cashier section. This will give you your total funds and how much of your available balance you can withdraw. If your welcome bonus isn’t reflected in funds available for withdrawal, it could be that you haven’t met the wagering requirements yet.
  2. Pick the withdrawal method you want to use.
  3. Fill in the amount you want to withdraw along with your casino password.
  4. Click on the “submit” button and hey presto! – your withdrawal will be processed. Make sure you have your ID because you might be asked to produce it at this point.

Advice on managing your bankroll

There’s nothing that beats the thrill of winning real money. The key to staying in control of your bankroll is keeping a healthy perspective on winning and losing. This means keeping track of your playing patterns as well as your moods and emotions. This way, you’ll be able to make smarter gambling decisions instead of heated ones.

Start by getting on top of the numbers. You don’t have to be a math whiz to keep track of your wins and losses for each session. These numbers will let you know how much you can afford to lose. They’ll also show how often you win when you’re worried or tired. Next, set your casino budget – this amount should be your absolute limit, not a guideline.

One of our best pieces of advice is to keep your deposit intact so you’re never tempted to place larger, riskier bets while you’re still building your bankroll. When you stick to withdrawing just a part of your winnings (experts say this should be just a bit more than your starting budget) you’ll never lose all your profits.
