What is Skrill?

Founded in the UK in 2001, Skrill has grown into an international digital wallet service available in more than 131 countries. It offers a range of money transfers and online payment services. The Skrill digital wallet, currently operational in 40 countries, is highly regarded. In 2019, Juniper Research handed Skrill its Best Digital wallet award. That same year, parent company Paysafe won the American Gambling Awards Payment Processor of the Year for the digital wallet and its sister product Paysafecard.

Paysafe also took over Neteller, a payment system that stopped operating in the USA in 2007. Thus, Skrill makes a natural substitute for former Neteller customers. In addition to its e-wallet, Skrill also allows crypto trading and a prepaid card service in conjunction with MasterCard.

Upsides of using Skrill on NM gambling sites

There are many good reasons for customers at online gambling sites in New Mexico to use Skrill to fund their gambling.

  • Your banking information is kept private. Some banks are reluctant to handle transactions with gambling sites. Others see frequent betting transactions as a red flag when customers apply for credit. With Skrill, both your bank and your betting provider deal with a third party, so there are no questions about where your money goes.
  • Extremely fast deposits and withdrawals. The beauty of e-wallets is their speed. Transactions are more or less instant, meaning you don’t have to wait around for money to drop into your account when depositing or withdrawing.

Downsides of using Skrill on NM betting apps

If you plan to open accounts on several different gambling platforms, you will probably need to operate a variety of payment systems to service them.
  • High fees compared to other methods. Most betting apps levy a transaction fee on each withdrawal or deposit via Skrill. This is typically around $5 a time. Other transaction methods have lower fees and several of them are free of charge.
