A real punter ought to know some few things about their bookmakers. Anyway, I will not go deeper into unnecessary stuff but mostly those that do describe our heading in the best way possible. As much as I will converge all my efforts on tackling the minimum deposit scenario, my focus will be largely on the top bookmakers because this is where most football professional punters lie. And by that I mean the likes of bet365, Ladbrokes, Unibet, William Hill, Coral, ComeOn, Betway, and BetVictor.
Since each and every one of them has their own minimum allowed deposit, it is better if I describe them separately so as for you, the punter, to fully understand how your bookmaker works in terms of deposition of money.
I do not know why but my favourite bookmaker is always bet365. I am guessing it’s because it has a fairly bigger share of punters in the market, or possibly due to the fact that it has so many football events to choose from. So, just like banking institutions, bookmakers too have a minimum allowed deposit that punters are expected to meet in order for them to start placing bets. Bet365 has its own minimum amount allowed deposit for its punters. Nevertheless, this changes depending on the payment method you, the punter, opt to use. By the way, bet365 gives punters 8 payment options to choose from. Credit/debit cards, Skrill, Skrill 1-tap, and Paysafecard require someone to deposit at least €5. The rest requires at least a minimum of €15 for the so that he/she can start placing bets.
William Hill should be next. Besides enabling its clients to make an instant deposit, it also has some deposit restrictions in place that must be overcome first before doing anything else that relates to betting. I guess what I am trying to say is that William Hill allows up to a certain minimum deposit into their system. Any punter planning to make a deposit must first understand that important rule otherwise, he/she will encounter an annoying error(s). They need to take into consideration that not all the 8 payment options they have been given by their bookmaker, have the same minimum allowed deposit. It is only the Bank Transfer that doesn’t have limits. Otherwise, the rest allow users to deposit not less than €19 into William Hill accounts. Once this is done, punters will then enjoy the betting sessions with nothing else to fear.
Unibet, one of the best and well-known bookmakers in the world, too has its own way of dealing with deposits. Its rules are very simple. Any Unibet user should deposit at the very least a minimum amount of €10 using Credit/debit cards, PostEpay, Ukash, or Paysafecard. Or a minimum of €15 using Neteller or Moneybookers. Fortunately, those who prefer using Bank Transfer to the other methods I have mentioned here have no limits at all. The only challenge that they will be faced with is the fact that their method takes longer than the rest. The deposited amount might take up to 5 workings days to be reflected in their punter account. The rest are instant or can delay up to a maximum of 3 minutes once the depositing process is initiated.
For Carol bettors, there are some issues to raise that may affect your way of deposit and I would like to highlight one or two important issues for you that have a direct relationship with the money that you plan to deposit in your account. First of all, Carol offers you up to 9 payments options to choose from. Each of these has its own minimum requires even though their processing time are instant, unlike other bookmakers payment options. All but PayPal allows you to deposit a minimum of €12. The rest are somehow lenient by allowing you to deposit €6 at the least. For your information, the payment options that you have are Credit/Debit Card, PayPal, Skrill, Skrill 1-tap, Neteller, eco, Paysafecard, and connect. The last one involves cash while the others operate mainly as e-wallets except for the Credit and Debit cards.
Time to take BetVictor users to class and give them some lessons relating to money depositing into their BetVictor’s account. What they need to know is that the minimum allowed deposit that they can make is €10 regardless of the payment methods they use to perform that task which by the way are Neteller, Paysafecard, Ukash, Skrill, PayPal, Webmoney and not forgetting the most commonly used method, Credit/Debit cards. I think that is all they need to know for now.
Finally, I believe dealing with Betway’s account is still in order. It is because it also has many customers just like the other bookmakers I mentioned here. Since that is the case, it is only fair to enlighten Betway users. Like many other bookmakers, Betway has roughly 8 payment ways that the users can choose from. Each of which has its own way of doing that and the time they take to process the deposits varies too. Most if not all have an instant transaction time. Bank Transfer method is the only option that takes a transaction time of 3-8 business days. The minimum amount to be deposited into this account operates mainly between €5 and €20 depending on the payment method that a user decides to use.
Neteller and Bank Transfer will only accept a minimum deposit of €20 while Credit/debit cards, Moneybookers, ClickandBuy, Paysafecard, and Click2pay require the users to make a deposit of not less than €5 else the process will be unsuccessful.
