Funding an account when gambling online, by phone, or through another available venue has come a long way, but there are companies looking to change the way that Americans bet, offering more convenience than ever before while improving the security of financial transactions.
Most of the electronic deposit methods that are available today still don’t quite compare to a new payment system, 900Pay, which requires no real payment upfront. With traditional deposit methods, players need to use a credit card or transfer money directly from their bank account to a third party that can then facilitate the payment to the casino or betting establishment in order to place their bets. In these instances, players’ money passes through a number of hands in order to get where it needs to be, with the only real benefit being that it’s relatively easy to track how much has been wagered when your funded account runs out of money.
Now, a new payment method for bettors makes the process of putting some money down on a football game through a sportsbook, or trying your hand at blackjack on an online casino even easier since you don’t need to provide any money upfront. Using the innovative new service, 900Pay, players make their bets of any denomination they choose, and the costs are then included on their phone bill for payment. This makes it faster and easier for players, and also provides a level of reassurance since their personal and financial data doesn’t pass through as many hands as it does with more traditional electronic deposit methods used for betting. Of course, it also means that when gambling, players need to keep track of how much they’re spending since there will be no account to track their spending as they bet when all balances will be rolled into a later phone bill. But for a responsible player, 900Pay is likely to transform the world of betting.
900Pay isn’t the only company changing the way players place bets either; i-Point is a new system used by many of the leading online casinos which uses technology most embraced today to process bets – cell phone text messaging! I-Point operates like a more traditional electronic deposit method, but is liked directly to a cell phone for convenience, and like 900Pay it’s a more secure way to deposit, since without the phone, no bets can be placed on the account which reduces the likelihood of fraudulent transactions.
Safety and convenience are two major things that people worry about when betting, because you never know where your financial data might end up; but with 900Pay and i-Point, both security and convenience seem as though they’re being taken to new levels!
The use and success of 900pay & iPoints as a way of funding bets is a matter of the future but the online casinos Rushmore Casino and Cherry Red Casino both accepts payments with either 900pay and iPoint.
