Moneybookers is one of the most popular e-wallets that is used by players to fund their online casino accounts. Moneybookers is authorized under the United Kingdom and the European Union law and regulated by the Financial Services Authority in the United Kingdom. Therefore it is one of the safest methods of funding online casinos. Moneybookers does not open accounts for online players from the United States.

As online casinos have flourished a number of financial service providers have entered the market place. Moneybookers has stayed ahead of the competition and is maintaining its lead position by offering a number of new features. Some of these are immediately applicable for its VIP account holders. Till the 31st of December 2008 all deposits made will be completely free of any charges or fees. The deposits can be made using credit card or by transfer from bank accounts. Moneybookers is also removing limits on single fund transfers both to and from online casinos for VIP accounts. High rollers were facing inconvenience, as they had to deposit funds in small amounts and also stagger their withdrawals. Now this is history. Moneybookers had also imposed a limit on credit card transactions in order to ensure that unauthorized persons did not steal the credit card details and clean out the online player's balance. But now with the enhanced security measures in place this restriction is no longer required. Now VIP credit card holders can carry out unlimited transactions through their credit cards as well. Because of the financial crunch being faced by the world economy the deposits to online casinos have been declining. These steps taken by Moneybookers will boost the inflows to online casinos.

In January 2009 Moneybookers will be launching their own credit card in conjunction with VISA - the Moneybookers VISA card. This will make it more convenient for players to upload funds into their Moneybookers e-wallet account and transfer the winnings from online casinos to any bank account through the Moneybookers VISA card.

Some of the most highly rated online casinos accept deposits through Moneybookers. Most of these online casinos offer bonuses for depositing funds through Moneybookers, which is an additional incentive. Cherry Red Casino offers a special welcome bonus of 250% up to $2,000 if deposits are made through Moneybookers. This can be used to play slots, keno, scratch cards, blackjack and video poker. Casino Tropez offers an additional bonus of 10% if the deposit is made through Moneybookers. This is over and above the welcome bonus. Some of the other online casinos that accept deposits through Moneybookers are Playboy Casino and InterCasino.
