How To Deposit & Withdraw

It’s impossible to write a universally accurate guide to depositing and withdrawing from an online betting site because all are slightly different and the process will vary depending on which method you use.

However… the process is very similar at all online bookmakers so following the steps below should be enough for you to be able to work out what you need to do:


1) Choose your preferred option from the list above and join one of the suggested bookmakers.

2) Log into your account and look for the ‘My Account’ section. Normally accessed somewhere in the top navigation bar or via the menu icon if using an app.

3) Find the deposit section which is often referred to as banking, deposits, or funding.

4) From here choose the option you prefer and enter the amount you want to deposit along with any details required to process the payment.

5) Hit the submit button and the funds will be added to your account. This is instant with most methods but if using bank transfer or cheque you’ll likely have to wait for the payment to be processed and confirmed.


1) Again log into your account and head to the banking section but this time select withdrawals.

2) Choose how you’d like to withdraw, it must usually be the same way you deposited unless you’ve chosen a method that doesn’t allow withdrawals (credit cards for example can’t withdraw more than the deposited amount).

3) Choose the amount you want to withdraw and hit the submit button.

4) You may be required to supply ID or some kind at this stage. Don’t be alarmed, it’s a normal process and is a measure in place to prevent money laundering.

5) The funds will hit your account in a timely manner depending on the method you’ve selected.
