Smartphones Make Mobile Casino Play Much Easier
Smartphones are getting advanced on a day-to-day basis. People also get to see one or the other app getting launched every now and then. Not just this, they are even using their smartphones for every other important or trivial thing. Be it for social media usage, shopping, bill payment, clicking photos, alarm and such several other things are carried out through phone itself.
The online casinos have since explored the potential of smartphones and have provided the gambling platform on phone. People made this hit as well. Now the online casino developers have taken next step of allowing the public to make casino deposits through phone bill. This is still new and is in the queue to gain popularity.
What is Deposit by Phone Bill?
Currently, very few casinos have ‘Deposit by Phone Bill’ option at public’s disposal. This is carried out in most online casinos through a service provider known as Boku. Online payments and purchases can be carried out with the help of Boku.
Now, using Boku is very simple. In the payment option provided at the online casinos, choose Boku as your preferred method. Deposit the amount of your choice and enter your registered mobile number. Once the payment is confirmed, an SMS will be sent to the registered mobile number. The last step to complete the transaction would be to reply to that SMS. The amount preferred by you to deposit at the casino will then get included in your monthly phone bill.
The bright side of Deposit by Phone Bill
As discussed above, you can see the ‘Deposit by Phone Bill’ through Boku is a simple and hassle-free payment method. That is not just to it.
You can observe the transactions carried out are pretty instantaneous. Well, it also depends on you. Considering you respond quickly to the SMS, the transaction will be completed soon and vice-versa.
Although online payments through debit/credit cards or internet banking are on the rise, most of us get worried over sharing our details relating to these online. So this is a secure method of payment for the people who do not wish to share bank account details.
There is still a chance of hackers getting your information through bank account details. But, likely of getting your personal details or money through SMS or ‘Deposit by Phone Bill’ method is closer to nil. Also try not to give your phone or phone lock code to anyone, just to be safe!
The downside of ‘Deposit by Phone Bill’
Everything has one or the other disadvantage. ‘Deposit by Phone Bill’ too has some ‘not so serious’ disadvantages.
While one can make deposits to casino accounts easily, there is no option of withdrawal through ‘Deposit by Phone Bill’ method. The casinos offer other payment options for withdrawal like e-Wallets. E-Wallets also offer similar privacy like that of pay by phone method.
‘Deposit by Phone Bill’ allows its users to deposit money in small amounts. The best example to demonstrate this would be of NetEnt. They allow their players to deposit money in amounts of £10, £15, £20, £25 and £30. While some players are pretty comfortable with this, some others find it irritating.
Although it has a slight downside, ‘Deposit by Phone Bill’ is still proving to be a very useful tool for payment transactions. It is still to reach its full form. Who knows in near future, the disadvantages of this application may get diminished and reach its popularity.
