    How to Place a Deposit Using PayPal at a New Zealand Casino?

    Making deposits at a PayPal casino site is very easy. That’s one of the most significant advantages of the digital wallet – it allows you to easily deposit and withdraw without sharing your details like with a debit card. PayPal also supports multiple currencies, including New Zealand Dollars. The guide below will show you how to deposit at a PayPal casino in NZ and fund your account in just a few simple steps.

    1. 1
      Open a PayPal Account
      If you do not have a PayPal account already, you need to head over to paypal.com and click on the Sign Up button top right on your desktop screen. Once you verified and opened the account, you need to link it to a bank account or credit/debit card. To verify your PayPal account for online casinos, you typically need to provide any of the following documents: Passport, Id Card, Driver’s License, Utility Bills, Bank Statements, Bank Card. The PayPal Verification process typically takes a few days to a week.

      Enter details

    As one of the most secure payment methods in the online gambling market, PayPal will keep your data safe and sound. Thanks to its user-friendly app, which tracks all transactions, you can use the digital Wallet to make payments from your computer or on the go.

    How to Withdraw Your Winnings Using Paypal

    Withdrawing winnings with PayPal is automatic if you used it as a deposit method. All you need to do is choose it and enter the desired amount at PayPal casinos in NZ. Voila! Your withdrawal will be ready:

    1. 1
      Log in
      Log in at a PayPal casino site
    2. 2
      Payments page
      Go to the cashier or payments page
    3. 3
      Balance
      Check your withdrawable balance and set a desired amount

    Withdrawing your winnings from PayPal to Your bank account

    You can use your PayPal account to withdraw money to your bank account. First, withdraw money from an NZ casino to your PayPal account, then send it to your bank account. To do this, go to Wallet, click on Transfer Money, and then click on Transfer to Your Bank.

    According to PayPal’s terms, standard bank transfers take up to 5 business days to complete. Holidays are not considered business days, so keep that in mind when withdrawing money.

    How to Choose a PayPal Casino That’s a Good Fit for You

    Choosing the right PayPal Casino NZ isn’t easy. That’s primarily because there are so many options. Important factors to check before choosing a NZ Casino include the License and security measures, transaction limits and withdrawal times. So, there are many things you need to factor in before you make a decision.

    Here are the essential things to consider before choosing a PayPal online casino:

    • License and security measures
    • PayPal compatibility
    • Mobile compatibility
    • Bonus and game variety
    • Welcome offer
    • Regular bonuses and promotions (for existing customers)
    • Online Reputation
    • Customer support
    • Overall user experience (especially in apps and mobile sites)
    • Transaction times, fees, and security

    Are there any Fees involved?

    One of the reasons why Kiwis love PayPal so much for online gambling is the convenience and lack of fees. A PayPal casino shouldn’t charge any deposit and withdrawal fees. Players need to pay a fee if they use a debit card to top up their PayPal account. We recommend linking your debit card with PayPal to avoid such fees. PayPal also charges a fixed fee + a percentage when withdrawing winnings. You can check all the New Zealand PayPal fees here.

    The Advantages of Using PayPal in Online Casinos

    PayPal is among the most secure payment methods for NZ online casinos. It’s also easy to use – much more accessible to a bank transfer. You won’t share your personal details compared to a debit or credit card, so it’s less risky than many options. Here’s why you should use the payment option at PayPal casinos:

    • Fast, safe, and 100% secure transactions authorised by 2FA
    • No need to share your personal details or card numbers – use your PayPal credentials
    • Unlike Neteller and Skrill, PayPal deposits qualify for bonuses
    • Widely accepted at the top NZ casino sites

    What are The Advantages of using PayPal Over Cryptocurrencies

    The main advantages of using PayPal over cryptocurrencies include ease of use, as it is widely recognised and user-friendly with seamless online casino integration. Transactions are generally faster with instant deposits and withdrawals. It is widely accepted by online casinos and merchants, making it a convenient payment option at most reputable casinos without additional fees. PayPal’s strict policies provide extra safety, and its availability in over 200 countries facilitates cross-border transactions. Additionally, PayPal requires no advanced knowledge of cryptocurrencies or blockchain, making it accessible to all users.

    Troubleshooting common issues faced by users

    While PayPal is easy to use, you might face some issues. In most cases, these revolve around being unable to complete a PayPal transaction.

    Technical Issues: For example, if you cannot log in and are sure you’ve got the details right, you should check if PayPal’s servers are down. You may need to complete additional verification steps to link your PayPal account with the casino, which can delay your deposits.

    If your card details don’t pass through, you may want to re-check them on the PayPal settings page. This is a common problem for first-time PayPal users who have entered the wrong details.

    Outdated bank card: Outdated card information is also easy to fix, and PayPal’s website has a guide that can help you through it all.

    Blocked Transactions: In some cases, PayPal may block transactions to online casinos due to regulatory issues or internal policies.

    Account Security: While PayPal is secure, your funds could be at risk if your account is compromised.

    Deposit and Withdrawal limits: Another common issue is depositing or withdrawing more than your PayPal limits. Contact the customer support team to find out what you’re allowed to withdraw.

    Withdrawal Complications: Some casinos may allow you to deposit with PayPal but not withdraw, requiring you to use an alternative withdrawal method.

    Payment Disputes and Reversals: If the casinos deposit your money (winnings) into PayPal as goods/services, those payments can be disputed and reversed up to 6 months later. If reversed, your PayPal balance may become negative, and the issue could be sent to collections, impacting your credit report.

    Approval Requirements: PayPal must approve online casinos to receive and send payments. Failure to meet these requirements can result in account closure and fund reversals.

    Do I Qualify for a Casino Bonus If I Deposit with PayPal?

    In short, yes, you do. PayPal is hardly ever on the list of excluded payment methods for claiming bonus offers at a PayPal casino in NZ. In most cases, Neteller and Skrill are the exclusions. It’s safe to use PayPal to make your first transaction and still claim the sign up bonus. The same goes for deposit bonuses to play your favourite casino games.

    Casino Games You Can Play at PayPal Casinos

    PayPal desktop and mobile casinos usually feature thousands of games. These include slots, jackpots, table games, card games, and live casino games. When wagering a bonus you obtained with a PayPal deposit, though, you will most likely need to complete the wagering on online Pokies.

    Online Pokies

    Pokies have been the top casino game for NZ players at PayPal casinos for many years. They come in many forms, ranging from vintage slot machines to Megaways and other titles with thousands of ways to win. Some notable releases you must try include Starburst, Book of Dead, and The Dog House Megaways. Thunderstruck I and II and Reactoonz are good picks as well.

    These games are fun because of the cool gameplay features and boosts that offer great winning potential. In short, you’ll have loads of fun and may hit record-breaking rewards.

    Table Games

    Blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and poker are casino classics that never die. They are available in free and real-money variants at PayPal casinos, which means free practice. While their variety or popularity doesn’t come close to slots, they still have many fans.

    Live Casino Games

    Live casino games offer a high-profile gaming experience. They replicate the gameplay experience on tables in land-based casinos. Streamed in real time straight to your devices, these games are played against professional dealers instead of against computers. Although they can only be played for real money, the immersive experience they provide makes it worthwhile.

    How Can I Avoid My PayPal Account Being Limited or Suspended by Casino Sites?

    To avoid your PayPal account being limited or suspended by gambling sites:

    1. Adhere strictly to PayPal’s policies on gambling transactions.
    2. Ensure your account is verified with accurate information to prevent any discrepancies.
    3. Avoid using PayPal for unauthorised gambling activities; always check if the gambling site is PayPal-approved.
    4. Regularly monitor transactions for any unusual activity.
    5. Keep transaction amounts reasonable to avoid suspicion.

    According to PayPal, adhering to their Acceptable Use Policy is crucial. Only engage in gambling activities that are legal in your jurisdiction. Ensure compliance to maintain account integrity and prevent limitations or suspensions.

    Our Expert Tips: Using PayPal in Online Casinos

    Remember a few of my tips when using PayPal for online gambling. First, you must understand that PayPal’s limits may not fit the casino’s. You won’t be able to deposit or withdraw more than the set amount, so make sure to check this information before you start.

    Since you’ll be playing with real money, it’s always best to try demos first to get a feel for each game. Learn strategies to optimise your profits, and don’t forget to play responsibly.

    Also, when claiming bonuses with PayPal, read the terms in depth. The devil’s always in the details, which means the fine print (terms and conditions). 

    Digital Wallet Alternatives to PayPal

    Many options are available if you don’t want to use PayPal and think an alternative is more fitting. Among them are Neteller and Skrill, although if you choose these payment options, you should know they’re rarely eligible for bonuses and promotions.

    You can use bank transfers or credit/debit cards for higher security. However, both options are slower, and gambling transactions will appear on your reports.
