Apple Pay

Since it's inception in 2014, Apple Pay has been gaining ground. The method was first only available in the U.S., but it expanded to Canada, China, and the U.K. during 2015 and 2016. Today, the banking option is available in more than two dozen countries.

The number of Apple Pay casinos is increasing. If you're not familiar with Apple Pay, you should be. It's a quick, convenient, safe way to complete banking transactions with your favorite participating online casino. Get to know this banking method and decide if it's a good fit for you.

What is Apple Pay?

Apple Pay is a simple way to purchase items using your Apple Watch or iPhone if you're in a store. Online, it's as simple as sending a message or choosing Apple Pay as your payment method and logging in or using Touch ID to confirm you are who you say you are. Are you familiar with PayPal at all? If you are, you've already seen how this type of system works.

Add your preferred credit or debit cards to your Apple Wallet. When you want to make a casino deposit, choose the card and a unique, encrypted code is sent to the casino's Apple Pay account. They never see your card information. Your card number is never sent to the casino. That helps avoid identity theft.

Does Apple Pay Charge Fees?

Apple Pay doesn't charge casinos fees if they sign-up to accept this banking method, but the casino will have to pay a fee to the credit card processing company. If that happens, you might be required to cover that fee. It does depend on the casino. Apple Pay will not charge you any extra fees.

How Do You Use Apple Pay at a Casino?

First, you need to have an iPhone 6 or 7, iPad Air, Mini, or Pro, Apple Watch, or MacBook Pro that's equipped with Touch ID. Make sure the iOS is updated. Sign in to your iCloud account and open Apple Wallet. Make sure, if you haven't already, added a credit or debit card. Now, wait for the card issuer to approve your addition to Apple Wallet.

Head to an Apple Pay casino and visit the cashier. When you're ready to make a deposit, click Apple Pay. At this point, you'll either use Touch ID to use your fingerprint to identify yourself or get directed to your Apple Pay app and log in.

You'll follow the steps shown on the screen to finish sending the money from your Apple Wallet to the casino. The entire process takes seconds. You don't have to enter a card number and hope it's accepted. If the casino accepts Apple Pay, you'll have no problem using your Apple Pay account to make deposits.

Make sure you read the deposit and withdrawal limits before making a transaction. It can be frustrating to try to do something and have it denied. Casinos may not be equipped to send payouts to Apple Pay. Be prepared to have a secondary method available for casino withdrawals.

Is Apple Pay Secure?

Apple Pay is secure in two ways. First, Apple Pay has measures in place to prevent identity theft by using unique encrypted transaction codes every time you send or receive money or pay a store. Your device is also assigned a unique identifier each time you use Apple Pay. Once a number is used, it doesn't get used again. Second, you also have the fraud protections that apply to your credit or debit card.

You do need to be careful. Make sure your phone, tablet, or laptop is secured with a password. If it is stolen, the thief will need to figure out your password first. That buys you time to deactivate your accounts. Second, don't share your log-in information or set up Touch ID. Third, check your card transactions regularly to scan for fraudulent transactions.

Apple Pay doesn't charge any enrollment fees. Sign up for free and use Apple Pay at a casino the next time you want to deposit funds. Many online casinos that accept Apple Pay offer promotions that can help grow the size of your deposit. Read the terms and check the promotions page before you make a deposit.
