Almost all UK betting sites will have Visa, Neteller, Skrill and bank transfers available among their deposit and withdrawal methods. These payment methods enjoy great brand recognition in their industry and beyond.

However, the UK gambling landscape is brimming with additional licensed and secure payment options that may have additional advantages. To uncover these hidden gems, we spoke with Bojoko's Joonas Karhu, a premier UK affiliate guiding bettors through the maze of online betting sites and payment methods.

Why do you think bettors tend to stick to traditional methods like Visa and bank transfers? Is there any reason to move beyond them?

There's a sense of familiarity and trust with traditional payment methods. Visa, Mastercard, and bank transfers have been around for a long time, and they've proven to be secure and reliable. They're also universally accepted, which makes them a go-to option for many bettors. However, the world of online betting is dynamic, and there are numerous underused payment methods that offer the same level of security but with added convenience.

What are some of these underused payment methods you mention, and why should bettors consider using them?

Payment methods like GooglePay, PayPal, and ApplePay are fantastic examples. They're not only secure, thanks to advanced encryption and fraud protection technologies, but they also facilitate instant transactions. This is a significant advantage for bettors who value speed and convenience in their transactions.

Does Bojoko help bettors become more aware of these alternative payment options?

Yes, absolutely. We've committed a lot of our resources to educating bettors about the different payment options available to them. Our website features extensive listings of UK betting sites, organised by the payment methods they accept, and guides on how to use them.

An easy example is our comprehensive guide to GooglePay betting sites and how to use them. Here, we list the advantages and disadvantages of using GooglePay as a depositing method at UK betting sites, as well as instructions on how to set up an account and make deposits. Just as important, we show you all the betting sites we have reviewed that accept GooglePay, allowing you to quickly compare them.

We have done the same with all other major UK payment methods used by online betting companies and continue to add more guides as additional payment options become available.

Can you tell us more about the advantages of using these niche payment methods for online betting?

Beyond the obvious benefits of security and convenience, these niche payment methods often come with their own perks. For instance, some offer cashback rewards, loyalty points, or even bonus credits on specific betting platforms. It's about adding value to the betting experience, making every aspect of it, including the way you handle transactions, more rewarding.

Finally, what would be your advice to UK bettors in terms of exploring new payment methods?

My advice would be to stay curious and open-minded. The online betting industry is evolving rapidly, and with it, so are the tools and technologies we use to interact with it. Exploring new payment methods can offer a more convenient and secure betting experience and unlock additional benefits and rewards.

I'll also sneak in the blatant plug that Bojoko is here to guide bettors through this exploration. Use our website and guides to discover the betting sites that accept the niche payment method of your choice, and be sure to read our guides to go in with as much information as possible.
