What Are The Fastest Paying Betting Sites?

Fast PayoutsAll betting sites offer a range of different payment methods for withdrawals, and each are subject to their own processing times.

Usually it’s more the method you use, not the site, which determines how quick you get your money out.

However… some bookmakers do delay payments deliberately (they want you to cancel). Avoid that by using the recommended sites below.

Do Some Bookmakers Deliberately Delay Payouts?

The above should give you all of the information you could possibly need regarding different withdrawal methods and their processing times.

It is worth keeping in mind, however, that some gambling operators do further delay the provision of your hard-earned winnings.

The way in which sites generally do this is by adding a period of time during which withdrawals are ‘pending’ before the transactions actually start to be processed.

Why are your payments pending?

This is done in order to try and persuade punters to change their minds about withdrawing and actually bet their funds instead.

‘Pending’ withdrawals, therefore, will almost always be able to be cancelled with just one click; immediately returning the funds which were to be withdrawn to a punter’s betting account.

If you want to avoid the temptation of reversing a withdrawal in this way, you’re best served by using one of our recommended same day payout betting sites and choosing one of their quickest withdrawal methods.

Which Withdrawal Methods Are Fastest?

Generally speaking, E-wallets such as PayPal, Neteller and Skrill have the shortest processing times and funds withdrawn via those methods will usually take less than 24 hours.

Credit and debit card withdrawals, meanwhile, typically take around 48-72 hours.

Neteller

NetellerDeposit time: instant
Cash out time: up to 24 hours
Fees: non charged by bookmaker but account fees apply

Neteller is an E-wallet service which is offered as a payment option by many different bookmakers. Again, it provides a buffer between those sites and a punter’s bank account, and offers impressively fast withdrawals.

For most bookies, Neteller withdrawals will be completed in just a matter of hours with almost all transactions likely to be complete before 12 hours have passed. Different timeframes, and potential charges, may apply to subsequently transferring those funds from Neteller elsewhere.

Want same day payouts? Use Neteller or one of the other ewallet options.

PayPal

PayPalDeposit time: instant
Cash out time: up to 24 hours
Fees: not unless you transfer funds to another paypal user

PayPal is undoubtedly the most popular E-wallet service around – at least with UK based punters. As such, it is a payment method provided by almost all of the major online bookmakers.

Deposits via PayPal can be made instantly and withdrawals are completed almost as quickly. The major bookmakers will generally have funds in your PayPal wallet within two to three hours and all PayPal withdrawals are usually complete within 24 hours.

PayPal’s actually our most recommended option because it’s quick and there’s no fees – get a full list of PayPal accept sites here.

Skrill

SkrillDeposit time: instant
Cash out time: up to 24 hours
Fees: non charged by bookmaker but account fees apply

Skrill is an E-wallet service which is accepted as a payment method by nearly all operators. It is favoured by punters who prefer to have an intermediate step between their online betting account and their bank account.

Withdrawals to Skrill are amongst the fastest prossible. From choosing to withdraw funds to having those funds in your Skrill account, you will be waiting no more than 24 hours. In many cases, too, the transaction will be completed in just two to three hours. It will then, however, take some time to transfer funds from a Skrill wallet to your bank account.

EntroPay

EntropayDeposit time: instant
Cash out time: up to 24 hours
Fees: non charged by bookmaker but account fees apply

EntroPay is a payment method, whereby you fund your online betting account using a virtual prepaid card. Most bookmakers and betting sites who accept EntroPay as a deposit method will automatically process all withdrawals back to the same EntroPay account.

That makes the process of withdrawing quick and simple, and withdrawals generally only take around 24 hours. EntroPay, however, is not as widely accepted a payment method as most of the other options listed here.

Paysafecard

PaysafecardDeposit time: instant
Cash out time: up to 24 hours (not always possible)
Fees: non charged by bookmaker but account fees apply

There are two ways to deposit to a betting account via Paysafecard. These are by using a prepaid Paysafecard voucher or by depositing from a Paysafecard account. If you deposit via voucher, you cannot withdraw funds back to that voucher.

You can, however, withdraw funds back to a Paysafecard account. Such an account is essentially the same as an E-wallet and is subject to similar processing times. A withdrawal to a Paysafecard account, then, will typically be completed within 24 hours.

Debit Card

Debit CardDeposit time: instant
Cash out time: 1-3 days
Fees: free

Debit cards are probably the most popular payment method with punters across the board. Withdrawals to a debit card go straight into a punter’s current account from their online betting account. It usually takes around 48 hours for that process to be completed, for debit cards issued by UK banks. Overseas issued cards, meanwhile, can be subject to longer processing times of around three to five days.

Withdrawals are subject to these timeframes due to standard banking clearance procedures, which mean that the vast majority of payments to current accounts take a similar amount of time to be completed.

Credit Card

Credit CardDeposit time: instant
Cash out time: 1-3 days (often only available up to amount deposited)
Fees: free

As a payment method for online gambling, a credit card is almost identical to a debit card. The option is offered by as broad a selection of betting sites and processing times are pretty much the same. You will once again, therefore, be waiting approximately 48 hours for funds to get back to a UK issued card or up to five days if your card is from outside the UK.

Once again, these kinds of processing times are in line with what you can expect from any credit card transaction, online gambling related or otherwise.

Bank Wire

Bank TransferDeposit time: 2-10 banking days
Cash out time: 1-5 banking days
Fees: free

Bank wire withdrawals are offered by many online bookies, but aren’t hugely popular with punters. That’s because not only do they take quite a long time to process, but they can also sometimes be subject to fees.

When it comes to how long a bank wire withdrawal takes, it depends upon the country and currency of the account to which you are withdrawing your funds. Most bookmakers process bank wire withdrawals more quickly to UK and European based bank accounts, using either pound sterling or Euros as their currency. Those withdrawals will generally be completed in one to five working days. Bank wire withdrawals to other accounts, meanwhile, can sometimes take up to ten days.

Cheque

ChequeDeposit time: 5-28 banking days
Cash out time: 5-28 banking days
Fees: free

Depositing to and withdrawing from betting accounts via cheque is possible with many bookmakers but very rarely done by punters. A withdrawal via cheque, after all, is by far the slowest way to get your hands on your funds.

Once a withdrawal is requested online, you will then have to wait for a cheque to be produced and sent to you in the post. It is then necessary to pay the cheque into your bank and wait for the funds to clear. Such a withdrawal, then, can take anywhere from five to 28 working days.

Bottom line here… if you’re looking for quick payouts from your bookmaker Cheque is not the answer.
