What is Skrill and why is it good for betting
Skrill, classified as an e-wallet and formerly known as Moneybookers, is one of the most popular methods for online global banking, trusted by millions and available to use in more than 200 countries and in more than 40 different currencies.
An e-wallet is a program/service offered via the Internet that allows members to store online banking information in one secure location, and make purchases, transfer money and receive money via that program/service.
With a staunch customer base and a respected brand name, Skrill is one of the chief preferred methods of banking for online betting operators, as it provides instantaneous transfer of cash and requires only an email address for the completion of the transfer of funds.
