Bingo Sites that Accept PayPal
First published by Melissa Dawn
If you have a PayPal account and want to play bingo online then it is more than likely that you would like to use PayPal as a means of payment, right? If the answer is yes then you are not the only one.
A few years back it not possible to get your kicks out of bingo using your hard earned eBay money but in recent years things have changed somewhat. Historically PayPal has always steered clear of gambling transactions due to it payment guarantee, which could easily open up a can of worms for PayPal. With a previous lack of trust with rogue gaming operators that once was commonplace disputes would have become widespread. However, in recent years online gambling has become a heavily regulated industry and with the rapid success of good operators they have become trusted and respected. This has led to PayPal changing its strict policy of no gambling payments and hey presto you can now play bingo using PayPal. You may too have checked some leading bingo sites such as Foxy, JackpotJoy or Wink Bingo and found out that shoot I cant use PayPal so whats the deal? Well, PayPal has not made it easy for operators to get a merchant account to accept its payments. What has happened though is that only the most trusted and respected operators have been granted merchant accounts. So, while you can play with PayPal it is only on a handful of sites. Luckily most of the operators now accepting PayPal payments are some of the better and most reputable bingo offerings available.
Comparison site Fantasy Bingo has put together their de facto list of bingo sites that accept paypal along with reviews for each one. As you will see giants such as Bet365, William Hill, Virgin and Ladbrokes all offer PayPal but what it interesting and surprising is that less well known names have also got merchant accounts while some bigger names have not.
Our conclusion is that if you are looking for a trusted operator to play bingo with then whether they accept Paypal or not is a good indicator that can help you make a decision.
