Get Your Online Casino Wins in Cash, Immediately
One of the most satisfying things about betting offline, is the speed at which money is in your hands and available to spend. It doesn’t matter whether you won a bet placed at the bookmaker, or played well at the blackjack table, the win is ready and waiting to buy your friend a celebratory beer on the way home. Even the cheapest champagne or the lightest beer tastes good when bought with the money that has been won.
This is one of the problems in online gambling. If you have a big win at an online casino, it can take days for the poker site to actually see the money, delaying your celebration.
Then what about online betting which is also available offline? I’m specifically talking about well-known brand names in the UK like William Hill and Ladbrokes. After identifying a gap in the market, these brands allow you to play online, but then receive the money immediately through their betting shop.
Instead of withdrawing your money to a debit card, e-wallet, or bank account, you can print out a cash voucher to take to a local bookie which they scan and hand over the money. The reverse is also true – if you want to deposit funds into your favorite poker room, you can make a “cash deposit” at the branch. You then receive a code to log into your online account and the funds are instantly available.
Now before the more morally challenged among you decide to go and register multiple accounts under fake names to take advantage of the bonus, or play through multiple accounts in the poker room, you should know that this kind of payment method still requires identification. Your account may need to be verified, and for some bookmakers, you will need a photo ID to collect your money. But for the official punters out there, you now have the convenience of playing online along with the immediacy of playing offline.
These types of bets tend to offer multiple products – usually at least 3 of the 4 main products: sports betting, online casino, poker and bingo. Some also offer special mini sites such as for games of skill or pub style slots. Since these sites also tend to have a “one wallet” accounting system, that means that no matter what game you play, you can get cash right away.
