Skrill is an online and electronic payment method used as a deposit account as well as a way to transfer money. Founded in 2001, Skrill (which was known as Moneybookers) was one of the earlier companies to set up payments for online gambling. Unfortunately as with all other payment companies involved in the U.S. market, Skrill lost many of its customers and had to focus on the rest of the world. With a very good reputation and relationships with many casino sites, Skrill was able to keep its footing and still remains a leader for online casinos. Signing up and registering with Skrill is quick and painless. Any money which you would like to have in your Skrill account can be done through a credit or debit card, eChecks, prepaid card and the usual suspects for these types of payment methods.
The pre-paid MasterCard and the ability to transfer money internationally are just but a few of the benefits of having a Skrill account. 200 countries and 40 different currencies provide Skrill customers with many opportunities to play in their favorite games. Feel secure in knowing that although Skrill is this international, they are regulated by the Financial Services Authority of the United Kingdom as well as approved by VeriSign. On its main website page, Skrill advertises its relationships with eBay and Skype along with bet365 which is a good indicator at how Skrill sees the benefits of the online gambling industry.
With the loss of both the United States and Canada, Skrill is not as popular as it once was in the world of online casinos. That being said, there are still a number of very good and reputable online casinos that accept this payment method. Just a few include Spin Palace Casino, Mummys Gold Casino.
