The world of e-commerce has put many traditional retailers under pressure in the last decade or so. More and more people shop online, even if they are purchasing goods they can just as easily obtain from a bricks and mortar store. Few supermarket chains don’t offer an online store and delivery service these days, do they? Then, of course, there are the huge internet-based marketplace sites where you can obtain just about anything in the world. Amazon and eBay are the big players in the West. [Read more…]

We are somewhat spoiled here at Platinum Play, because our casino is one of the few that has met all the safety and fairness requirements that earn the eCogra seal of approval. That in itself should be enough to alert players to the fact that this is the place to play if you don’t want to stress about your personal info being compromised, but there are still those who are a little nervous about sharing their information online.
If you are one of those who are still a little wary, then let me share something with you that will help allay the last of any fears you may have about online financial transactions. I’m talking about using web wallets, which require nothing more than your email to complete a payment, and one of the best out there at the moment is UKash.
Imagine a way of transferring money that requires zero of your personal information to do so, and you get an idea of how UKash works. All you have to do is look for a store that displays the epay symbol, go inside and pay for an Ukash voucher with cash, and then you can use the unique 19 digit number on the voucher to make your payment, or to deposit funds into your favourite online casino.
If you live in an area that doesn’t have epay friendly stores, then you can simply head on over to the UKash website where you can get a prepaid Mastercard to use in anywhere that MC is accepted. Besides the privacy, UKash is a great way to help keep yourself on a strict budget at the casino. Once the amount of your voucher or card is used up, you need to refill it in order to use it again. Of course Platinum Play is one of those places where UKash is accepted, and it’s just another example of how PP goes out of their way to make their casino the safest place to play.
Transactions at a land based casino are extremely straightforward; you hand over your money to the cashier and get that value of chips and, if you are lucky enough to win, hand over your chip bounty and receive the cash equivalent, simple.
It gets a little more complicated when playing online, but the good news is that there are many more options available to the online player than there are at their local casino. Before you make any transaction online, be sure that you are sending your money to a trusted casino that has a good reputation and long history of paying out to its customers. Platinum Play Online casino is one of those trusted sites, and here are the deposit and withdrawal options available to its players.
EcoCard – an online payment system that is the equivalent of a virtual debit/credit card.
Click2Pay – another online payment system with numerous ways to fund your account.
EntroPay – a virtual Visa and Mastercard, pre-paid debit card.
EZIPay – a pre-paid card used for mobile phone top-ups; fast becoming an online casino deposit option.
Check – a good, old-fashioned check is a great option, but if mailed in will take time to post to your account.
Bank Wire/Swift -another old-school payment method.
Solo & Maestro – both fully electronic debit cards, perfect for online transactions.
Visa debit/credit cards – these are subject to the country you are playing in as many banks, particularly in the US, are trying to stop their cards being used for gambling purposes.
Neteller & Moneybookers – online payment options similar to Paypal.
InstaDebit – usually attached to your checking account, but another service that is unavailable to US players.
UseMyWallet – another online payment option that seems to have been set up for the sole use of online casino players.
There are many options available at Platinum Play online casino, and I am sure that there is more than one that will be suitable for your needs, but all come with the same warning of never gambling more than you can afford to lose.
