Casino Cash Outs – How to Withdraw
We want to make sure that your online casino withdrawal experience is always going to be a positive one. Only if you are well informed you will know how to get your winnings paid out without any problems.
This is important; after all, you want to use your winnings for purchases outside of the casino. During this process, players often encounter problems that could be avoided. You will now find out what to pay attention to when it comes to your casino cash outs.
How to withdraw in three Easy steps
Fast casino withdrawals are quite easy and can usually be initiated in just three steps:
- When you are logged in, go to the cash out area of the website.
- Select the payment method you would like to use. Please, note that you must have already used this method for a deposit. (Bank transfers to your bank account are an exception)
- Enter the desired amount and the required payment information and click on “Withdraw”.
Some gambling websites have the withdrawal area in the same tab as the deposit area. With other operators, these are separate and/or are only displayed as soon as withdrawable money is available. It is best to familiarize yourself with the layout of a new casino for a quick and positive pay out experience.
In addition, there are a few things to consider during these steps, which we will go into in detail in the section “Can casinos block a cash out?”. Read them carefully so that your withdrawal experience does not end in unnecessary frustration.
Top Casino Cash Out Options
It is often the case that significantly more deposit than withdrawal methods are offered. This is partly because, for example, methods such as Paysafecard or Instant Banking can only be used for deposits. Until recently, Mastercard did not accept withdrawals from online casinos either, but this has now changed.
Since in reputable casinos – for anti-money laundering reasons – withdrawals can only be made using a method that has already been used for deposits (except for bank transfers), you should consider this from the start. For example, many players choose Paysafecard because it is an anonymous payment method but forget that their winnings must be paid out to a much less anonymous method, leading to this advantage being lost.
Your experience regarding the withdrawal of winnings does not have to be a negative one just because of this. e-wallets offer anonymity and can usually be used for both deposits and withdrawals. They, in turn, have other disadvantages that you should consider when making your decision. You can find out more about this in our detailed reports on the individual payment providers.
Which pay out option is the best for you depends on your own preferences and needs. When it comes to payment methods, there is none equally suitable for all players. It is best to think about which methods are suitable for you before you make your first deposit.
Popular withdrawal methods
There is now a large selection of payment providers that cover different needs. By and large, these can be divided into the following categories:
• Credit cards
• Instant Banking
• Bank transfer
The e-wallets include Skrill and Neteller and, most recently, Paysafecard. Credit cards often used for gambling are Visa and Mastercard. The Instant Banking methods offered in this country include, for example, Trustly. A good old transfer to your bank account is of course also possible.
Can casinos block a cash out?
One point that often leads to a negative cash out experience is the rejection of a withdrawal request. While dodgy operators of course do what they want, reputable casinos may also reject withdrawal requests in certain cases. Should this happen, it is always a violation of the terms and conditions and therefore usually for one of the following reasons:
- The wagering requirements for a bonus have not yet been met
- The withdrawal was made to a payment method that has not yet been used for deposits
- The player account has not yet been verified
- The winnings were not gained in accordance with the t&cs
- Money laundering or other illegal activities are suspected
- A deposit amount has not been used in full for stakes at least once
Frequently Asked Questions
💬 How can I withdraw my money from an online casino?
If it is real money that has been used in full for playing in the online casino at least once after the deposit and you are allowed to gamble, you can pay out your winnings via the cash out area of your player account.
💬 How long does it typically take to withdraw winnings?
Usually, all withdrawal requests are cross-checked by the casino staff within 24 to 36 hours and then forwarded to the respective payment provider. Depending on whether they also check the receipt of funds, your winnings are usually credited within 1 to 7 working days.
💬 Does the withdrawal’s size make a difference?
It can happen that the casino’s processing time takes a little longer for large amounts. Also, if an unusual “pattern” is observed, it may happen that pay outs are being checked a little more thoroughly.
💬 Are there minimum withdrawal amounts?
Most online casinos do have minimum amounts for the withdrawal methods offered. This is because, on the one hand, they want to prevent players making many small withdrawals and, on the other hand, because withdrawals often cost money for the casino in terms of fees.
