Electronic checks have become an increasingly popular way to transfer money online, particularly for commercial items that have large price tags. They are a safe, secure, and fast way of transferring funds, so it is not surprising that casinos have also started to adopt this method.

The way that the echecks work is relatively simple, and can be summed up in a few simple steps:

Importantly, not all of the electronic check casinos that accepted deposits will also issue withdrawals via this method. It is always best to check with the casinos’ FAQ page or their cashier page to determine if they do allow for withdrawals. You don’t want to come unstuck at the last moment, trying to get your hands on your hard-won winnings.

Electronic Check Benefits

When a new technology is introduced, the incentive to transfer from the existing one will ultimately be determined by the benefits it brings. So, like any other new tech, adopting echecks will come down to their benefits. But, what exactly are the benefits of echecks?

The first key benefit of echecks is the security that they bring. Once the sender of the check has completed their request for payment, typically an email will be sent to the customer or a special page will be generated. This will typically not contain the check, as that would be unsafe, but will contain an encrypted link to the echeck, which only they can complete. Ultimately, this means that only the intended parties (other than the banks) can see, sign, and complete the check.

The second key benefit of echecks is the speed and efficiency that they bring, particularly compared to their non-digital counterparts which are notoriously slow. Typically, echeck funds are verified somewhere between 24 and 48 hours after the transition has begun. If the money in the payer’s account is sufficient (i.e. the check doesn’t bounce), then the transaction should be cleared, complete, and the money in the recipient’s account in about 3 to 5 days.

In addition to this, there are lower processing costs for echecks when compared to other e-transfer systems. This might not always affect the customer, because not all sites will impose a transaction fee. But it increases the chances that the casinos will impose a transaction fee because they won’t have much of a cost that they’re trying to pass on to you.

Another benefit of echecks is a little more indirect but vitally important. Echeck, because they don’t use paper, are better for the environment. Like most bank statements now, there is no need to use paper, and as a consequence, there is a massive reduction is waste.
