There’s nothing more frustrating that landing a big win, but having to wait days for it to hit your bank account. When you hit a jackpot, it’s quite natural to want to get your hands on the cash and spend it!
Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to speed things up.
I’ve been playing at online casinos for 20 years, so I wanted to share some of my top tips to make sure you get the fastest casino payouts possible.
Choose The Fastest Withdrawal Method
One of the main factors that affects your payout time is the withdrawal method you choose.
So it goes without saying that if you want a fast casino withdrawal, you should choose the method with the fastest processing time.
Typical withdrawal times are as follows:
- Bitcoin: 24 – 48 hrs
- E-Wallets (PayPal, Neteller, Skrill, ecoPayz): 24 – 48 hrs
- SEPA Bank Transfer: 2 – 4 Days
- Check: 5 Days
- Bank Wire Transfer: 10 – 15 Days
These timings vary and are just for comparison. Of course, are other factors involved as well, not least the casino themselves. But no matter which casino you use, a Bitcoin or E-Wallet withdrawal will always be faster than a bank wire or check.
Get Verified In Advance
It’s a fact of life that when you play at an online casino, at some point you will need to verify your ID.
Don’t take it personally! This applies to everyone. They have to do this to make sure you’re legally old enough to play, and also to protect against money laundering.
In that sense, I see verification as a good thing. But whether you like it or find it annoying, it’s going to happen before you can get paid.
However, what many players don’t know is that you can scan and send your ID in for verification before you’re ready to withdraw your winnings. Remember you only need to do this once per casino, not for every transaction.
If your documents have been checked and verified already, then it won’t hold up your withdrawal, meaning you get a faster payout.
Play With Cash, Not Bonuses
If you’ve been playing with bonus funds, the casino needs to do extra checks to make sure you’ve complied with all the bonus terms and conditions.
This does inevitably mean that your withdrawal will be delayed.
How long for? It depends on you, what games you’ve been playing and how many hands or spins are involved. But also on the casino, how many staff they have doing that job and how fast they work.
If you’ve been playing with cash, then there are no extra checks required and nothing to delay processing your payout.
That’s not to say that you shouldn’t use bonuses – for some players they’re a great solution to boosting your bankroll. But just be aware that if you do use them it is going to slow down your withdrawal.
So all things being equal, if you have a choice, play with cash for the fastest withdrawal times.
Become a VIP
Many online casinos have VIP programs, loyalty points, or other similar reward schemes.
Often you’ll be enrolled automatically, and you will earn points the more you play. There are many possible benefits, depending on the casino you choose and how good their VIP scheme is.
One potential benefit is – you’ve guessed it – faster withdrawal times!
So always check your casino rewards program to see if this is one of the benefits on offer. If fast payouts are an absolute priority for you, then this may be one of the factors you consider when choosing which casino to play at.
There may be no such thing as an instant payout in online casinos, but they don’t need to take days either. Experience teaches us that there are things we can do to make sure we get our money faster.
By following some or all of these tips, you’ll experience the fastest withdrawal casinos can offer online, and get your money in your account as quickly as possible.
Good luck and happy gaming.
