Moneybookers(Skrill)

The Skrill Digital Wallet

Moneybookers have recently rebranded themselves as SKRILL however the actual service that they offer has not altered at all.

Skrill (Moneybookers) is the secure way to pay globally without revealing your financial details. With just your email address, you can send and spend with over 100 payment options, including all major credit and debit cards, in 200 countries, so, If you have ever waited days for your money to withdraw from one bookmaking account before you can use it elsewhere then this is the service for you.

The other huge advantage of using the service is that it keeps all your betting related activity out of the prying eyes of your bank who have been know to question high numbers of gambling transactions when it comes to mortgage applications and the like.

Skrill is an electronic wallet that allows you to move your funds between betting accounts far quicker than you would be able to if you were just using your debit card, with most withdrawls being back in your wallet within 6 hours ready for use again- deposits are instant. .

The service is easy to use and safe although like any electronic banking system its vitally important that you pick a strong password and change it frequently. If you are a high user you will be upgarded to VIP status in no time and even if not I would reccomend talking to them about a purchase price for a security key which tends to differ depending on if they have any offers on.

Deposits to the service are free and the cost of withdrawls varies deoending on which country and actual method but is normally in the region of  £1.50.

When you sign up you will have to verify that it is your account by confirming a random amount that they debit from your account (normally somewhere between £2 and £3)- once this is done you will be up and running in no time.

in our view this service is an absolute must.
