Until 2003, PayPal was the largest payment processor of real money online gaming transactions across the world. However, between 2003 – 2010 PayPal chose to stay away from the industry, before returning in 2010 in only those countries where real money gaming was legal. That's the reason why many players perceive that PayPal has been among the late entrants in the UK's real money mobile gaming industry. Slowly but firmly, it has been spreading its wings and has been collaborating with a number of sites which have become Paypal sites – only the licensed ones though.
In this particular article, we've put together a list of 10 best mobile casinos in the UK that accept PayPal for deposits and withdrawals.

So, without further ado, here is our list of the top 10 casinos that do use PayPal in no particular order. Continue reading

Frequent travelers who like to play casinos while away will have to be wary of using Paypal from next month onwards. Starting on the 25th June, PayPal will stop protecting payments made on gambling platforms across several territories. The most significant of these territories include Canada, Brazil and the USA.
PayPal have defined gambling purchases as “gambling, gaming and/or any other activity with an entry fee and a prize”. Any gambling transaction will be added to PayPal's ineligible items list.
