There’s something so exciting about moving on to playing online casino games for real money after months of practice, exploration, and getting to know the rules. All the casino games you could ever imagine, many of which you can play against real people for maximum thrill, are available to play at online casinos. 

Of course, in order to take part in live dealer casino games, you’ll need to be able to make mobile payments and deposits into your gaming account. Due to a massive surge in online gaming, a wide variety of payment providers have popped up in recent years, all of whom offer different benefits with different terms and conditions. However, not all of them are safe, secure, or genuine – and that’s not the kind of provider you want handling your money. As such, you’ll need to know how to weed out the good from the bad before you dive into spending real money on your favorite casino games to play.

Feeling a bit overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of your options? Discover everything you need to know about finding the right mobile billing provider, along with a round-up of our top choices below.

VIP Preferred

VIP Preferred is powered by Global Payments and designed for convenient cashless gaming, which makes it especially useful if you want to play at an online casino. It’s known for its 7-day rolling limits and is accepted by over 500 casinos, interactive gaming sites, and iGaming partners across the US.

Signing up for  VIP Preferred as your go-to billing provider is easy. You’ll need your driver’s license number, your bank’s routing number, and your account number. The funds will then be transferred directly from your bank account to your BetMGM account.


Play+ is a billing provider known for its user-friendliness and speed in both depositing money and cashing out. A significant advantage of choosing Play+ as your provider is that it can be used everywhere that Discover® is accepted and at any ATM that accepts PULSE® and NYCE® cards.

You can sign up to join Play+ in minutes, and crediting your account is as simple as making a bank transfer or adding a debit card.


PayPal is a useful way to fund your mobile casino games – you’re probably already using this provider for other online purchases. What’s more, there’s no need to sign up for a separate account to play at the BetMGM online casino. Simply use your existing account to top up your BetMGM account – no hidden fees, no hassles.

As most people know, PayPal promises ultra-secure online transactions and makes it possible for you to set up a billing agreement. This means faster deposits and more time to play!

Apple Pay

Are you the proud owner of an iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch or Mac? If so, you might find Apple Pay a convenient mobile billing provider. The platform offers an easy, secure, and private way to pay.

While currently only available for iOS on mobile web in Safari, Apple Pay promises maximum peace of mind due to payments being safeguarded by “Touch ID,” “Face ID,” and/or the password on your Apple device. Yet another benefit of choosing Apple Pay is that there are no fees attached to any deposit you make when playing online with BetMGM.

Other Payment Options To Consider

In addition to the mobile payment providers highlighted above, there are plenty of other payment options you can use if you choose to gamble online with BetMGM.


GameOn, powered by Blackhawk Networks, is a top choice for those who enjoy sports betting. You can get your very own pre-loaded GameOn card and use it to make deposits into your BetMGM account. There are no fees attached, and your deposit usually appears within a minute or two, which allows for fast top-ups when you’re on a winning streak.


Interested in making deposits into your gaming account at a local store? Then the handy PayNearMe service is for you. Before heading to the store, log in to your account to generate a PayCode, which will be sent straight to your email or phone. You’ll then go to your chosen store and use cash and the code to make a deposit.


Make payments directly from your bank account without having to navigate away from the BetMGM site. The PayWithMyBank service is available for free and with no sign-up. All that you have to do is log in to your bank account via BetMGM and follow the prompts to make your deposit. The best news is that once you’ve completed your initial deposit, you won’t have to log in again to make another one.
