4 Facts You Need to Know About Casino Mobile Deposits

Mobile Phone Bill DepositsMobile deposits has been a much-covered subject here at Droid Slots. You could say we’ve talked about almost everything there is to know about it, from the best deposit methods to use to being able to tell if your casino does mobile deposits in the first place. In fact, there’s so much that many readers may get confused with all this information and mix up the facts. This is why we have taken the trouble to make this post — to condense the facts you (probably) didn’t know about mobile deposits so that you’re well informed.

1. It’s super convenient!


As a member of an online casino, you may feel compelled to join a company like Neteller or PayPal in order to be able to put down your first deposit. And to do that, you’ll have to fill out details on an online form which can be time consuming when all you want to do is deposit and play.

With mobile deposits, all you need is your phone. Since you already have a contract and payment scheme set up with whatever company you’re with, all you need to do is send either a simple SMS text or add it to your monthly bill. And that’s literally it! It can be done anywhere.

2. It’s super easy and quick!


Similar to the above point only that everything is done in literally a matter of minutes, or even seconds. As mentioned, all it needs you to do is send a text and you could be playing your favourite slot within the next draw of breath. Make sure you stay topped-up, though!

Especially if you’re on pay-as-you-go. Because phone deposit payments are this easy, people forget that they actually need money to pay for their phone calls. But don’t worry too much. Still try to have fun! Phone companies put a cap on how much you can deposit anyway of about £30.

3. Most phone companies allow it!


In case you’re wondering if your respective network allows for phone deposits then wonder no longer. All major UK network providers including O2, EE, Vodafone, Three, GiffGaff and T Mobile allow for mobile depositing. By law, they are required to put a £30 cap on your depositing each day so that you don’t overspend.

In general, though, they are more than happy to see to your mobile gambling needs. Just like with your phone payments, they also provide two different ways in which you can put through your deposit.

4. There are two methods of depositing!

These two methods have been mentioned already in point number 1 — you can pay by either sending an SMS or by adding it to your monthly phone contract. The SMS option takes money from whatever’s left of your top-up. In fact, it’s probably a good idea to top-up before you pay.

The second option is to do it via your monthly phone contract which adds the amount you want to pay onto your bill. That’s another reason why the £30 cap exists — so you don’t get that large bill shock at the end of the month.

And there you have it. You are now hopefully better informed than you were five minutes ago before reading this post. If you already knew this stuff, then what are you doing? Get out of here! Scram! Just kidding. We love all our readers. Please don’t leave.

Victoria's Mobile Casino Blog Project

When Victoria started writing for Droid Slots, she had never played on a mobile slot in her life. Although it’s hard to believe given her current level of expertise, it’s been a steep learning curve for her, and the last few months have seen her wading through a whole new word of games and casinos. We hate to miss a great opportunity, as so had Victoria write about her experiences in her very own blogging section of the site. Our hope is that other players who are finding their feet can use Victoria’s discoveries as a guide to their own play. As the way she engages with casinos gets more sophisticated, so do her explanations of how to deal with the new experiences. If you’re a new player just starting out, or ever a seasoned player looking for a good read, Victoria’s blog project section is a  great place to look.
