If you’ve landed yourself a win on an online casino game, you might want to use the extra funds to keep playing, but most likely, you’ll want to withdraw at least some of the money pretty much immediately.
The first thing to remember is that every online casino is slightly different, so while we’ll give you a basic rundown of how to withdraw money, the process might not be exactly the same at all casinos.
In general, the process of requesting a withdrawal is very simple, and it can take under a minute, no matter whether you’re using a desktop computer or mobile device. Most online casinos have a user-friendly interface where you can request the withdrawal, so there shouldn’t be anything too confusing about the process.
You can follow this quick step-by-step guide to how to withdraw your winnings, and we’ll go into some more details later:
- Log in to your online casino account
- Click on the cashier option
- Select “withdraw”
- Choose your withdrawal method
- Enter the amount of money you want to withdraw
- Complete the transaction
- Wait for your cash to land in your account
The good news is that pretty much all Australian online casinos allow you to withdraw using all devices, including desktop browsers, mobile browsers, and mobile apps. If you’re withdrawing on your desktop browser, you’ll probably see the cashier icon at the top of your screen, while if you’re on mobile, it will probably be sticky at the bottom of the screen as you move around the site.
Before you can withdraw from an online casino, you’ll usually always need to verify your account. Licensed Australian online casinos will request that you prove your identity using your ID and proof of address documents, and while in some cases you’ll have to do this before you can even deposit, all casinos make you verify before you can withdraw.
It’s usually a simple process that just involves uploading photos of your documents or emailing them in for the team to review, and it’s a good idea to do this quickly so that you don’t experience delays with your withdrawals.
When you think about online casino withdrawal methods, options like Visa and Mastercard b immediately come to mind, but there are actually a whole lot of other withdrawal methods available for Aussie players.
Each of these methods has its own set of pros and cons; for example, bank card withdrawals are convenient and highly secure, but they take a little longer to reflect in your account, while e-wallet transactions require a third-party account, but money shows up in your account much quicker. Here’s a list of some of the main withdrawal methods for Australian players:
- Visa and Mastercard
- E-wallet (PayPal, Skrill, Neteller)
- Bank wire transfer
- Cryptocurrency (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum)
While not all Australian online casinos offer all of these withdrawal methods, most of them have a combination of at least a few.
At many Australian online casinos, you’ll only be able to withdraw to methods that you’ve previously used to make a deposit, so you might notice that only a few options appear in the withdrawals section for you.
This is done for security and anti-money laundering reasons, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise. One thing to keep in mind is that not all deposit methods support withdrawals (for example, you can’t withdraw using prepaid options like Paysafecard), and in this case, you might be asked to withdraw using a bank transfer.
