Neteller and Skrill Alternatives For Online Casino Payments
In early December 2020, Neteller and Skrill, two products from the Paysafe group, announced that they would no longer process payments to online casinos and other gambling websites for users residing in Norway.
Players were informed by the casino operators, and had until the 21st of December to withdraw their casino funds to the wallet. After that date, payments were no longer processed by the casino, and users would have to use alternative methods.
Unfortunately, due to the restrictive gambling laws in Norway, and online gambling being illegal, players don't have a whole lot of options available to them anymore, as other payments, like credit cards, bank transfers and Paysafecard vouchers were no longer accepted either.
There are two other e-wallets available who accept Norwegian users and also allow for NOK as an account currency. You can use ecoPayz and Jeton e-wallets to make payments in kroner, and many casinos accept these two wallets.
Jeton is a relatively new e-wallet, with a rather small but growing user base. The UK-based and FCA-regulated company offers a competitive e-wallet with lower fees than those of other operators, and users can also obtain a Jeton card and use to make payments in shops, withdraw money at ATMs or pay online.
Jeton wallets support payments in Norwegian krone and you have many payment options available to fund your Jeton wallet. Payments with Jeton are safe and secured through SSL, and many online casinos accept this new wallet.
The ecoPayz wallet has been around for around 20 years now. The company PSI-Pay Ltd is based and licensed in the United Kingdom and offers a electronic wallet and many other services, including prepaid Mastercards, ecoVouchers and more.
The fees for the wallet services are reasonable and many online casinos accept ecoPayz. You can also make NOK payments, and you have many funding options available, including bank transfers and credit cards. An ecoPayz online casino is a good option for users from Norway to deposit and withdraw funds.
