There have never been more ways to make a deposit at a UK online casino . Whether you want to pay by mobile, pay via a bank account, make a PayPal transaction or even pay in cash, you’re spoiled for choice right now.

But increasingly players are seeking to bring their financial outgoings under one roof, which is why a popular option is to now pay by phone bill.

Tying your casino play to your phone bill means you can easily check how much you’ve spent or won over the past month, and budget for the future. It’s also often quicker than using traditional bank card payments.

So, how does paying by mobile at a casino work? Here, TMC takes you through a step-by-step guide to making a mobile deposit…


Payforit is one of the casino mobile payment options

1. Choose your casino

This might sound obvious but choosing your casino is the first step to making that mobile deposit. And the great thing about the UK online casino industry is there are loads to pour over.

Here at top mobile casino we review scores of casino sites and rank them based on their suitability for players. When it comes to choosing a casino, make sure you look at the choice of games, ease of deposit, whether they have a casino app, and their safety and security measures.

Once you’ve made your selection, it’s time to create an account.

2. Create an account

Before you pay by mobile at your chosen casino, you need to set up an account. This is fairly easily done. You’ll need your personal details and also a form of ID that the casino can use to verify it’s you, and not a scammer, who is setting up the account.

You must be aged 18 or over to bet online in the UK, and have a UK bank account. It’s this bank account that will be initially linked to your profile. But that doesn’t mean you have to use that account to make deposits and withdrawals.

3. Choose a deposit method

Once your profile is create it’s time to make that first deposit. Depending on the casino, you should be able to select between a Pay by Mobile, Boku or Payforit option. These latter two options are available to UK players and act as mobile payment software, so you can link your phone bill to your casino account.

4. Set up your mobile payment account

Indeed, if you haven’t used Pay by Mobile, Boku or Payforit before then you might now be asked to create an account on that platform. This shouldn’t take too long and also requires you to enter some personal information, to help fight against fraud.

5. Fund your account

Once your pay by mobile account is set up, you’ll then be able to process a deposit to your casino that takes the funds from your next phone bill. If you’re using a pre-paid phone then you’ll have to make sure there are sufficient funds in your balance to process the casino deposit.

6. What about my winnings?

If you win at a casino and want to make a withdrawal, you can easily do so by reversing the deposit method. This means you’ll get your funds credited to your mobile account. You might also be able to receive the funds in a bank account, depending on the operator.
