God I hate PayPal so much, so after years of using them for deposits into and out of casinos for thousands of pounds over the years without a problem this happens today. Got a £10 bonus from a casino won't mention who as they are unliked here. Anyway beat the wager and cashed out £100 via PayPal as I always do with them as its faster than most for processing, job done money in PayPal account at 11pm as expected, transfered from PayPal to bank account as its instant and they put it in pending. No live chat, no phone staff I am fuming with disgust I have never had a pending before ever.

Paypal always has been a no-no for gambling. If they find out where the money is from your account might get locked. No serious casino will allow Paypal transactions anyway.
Most of them allow it. Leovegas, genisis, kaboo. Its never been a problem before last transactions where from leovegas to PayPal £350, £350 to my bank.

Loads do, Betfair, Coral, Skybet, LeoVegas.
I've done £10000s of thousands through paypal over the years, seeing multiple high value payments from gaming providers means that Paypal know where it comes from, I've never had my account closed or locked.

Also the reason I use this method is that its processed by the casino and in PayPal withing minutes then in my bank in seconds where as with videoslots it's processed pretty fast once a day but takes 3 days to enter my bank.

If you use trustly its back in your bank pretty much instantly too, if speed is an issue for you.

It was tonight. Bad week money wise lol, will have to check trustly out do they charge? Neteller does now that's why I have stopped using them £5 charge for a £42 withdrawal and took 5 days to reach account, working days that is.

Always using Paypal too to deposit and withdraw, all the big bookies and casino's offer it here in Belgium. I've once had to send in my ID to Paypal but that's been a long time ago, something about reaching x amount of transactions IIRC. Other than that they've never held funds pending.

As far as i'm aware that goes for all Countries except the U.K. - bit weird they are so strict 'worldwide' yet allow it in the U.K. but that's a fact i've known for the longest time.
Reading sufferinsilence's post, it apparently also goes for Belgium (sure you're not confused with Paysafe? Just checking) and of course Paypal is still used in various Countries as an indirect medium, which of course legally is not really an issue..

But if they find out a transaction has to do with Gambling - in Countries where they do not allow it, they will definitely lock your account, and may even take legal actions and/or confiscate whatever is in it.

32Red, LeoVegas, Sky Vegas, Paddy Power etc

All not serious casinos :laugh:
Quick search at least 59 mainstream casinos take PayPal including some that are accredited here.
Sorry everyone...I thought it was a worldwide thing but apparently Paypal must accept gambling in some countries.

Paypal works only with trusted brands!

Yeah, sometimes it happens that money is pending and even sometimes might be £10 pending but a large amount goes through without a problem. (the pending time is exactly 24 hours)

With PayPal, you have to be careful (if you can't control your gambling habit)! But otherwise, it's the best for depositing and withdrawing from casinos.

In some casinos, deposits go through without having money in your bank account!

Finding this out a few years ago I gambled away £4700. It allowed depositing by £100 at a time :D
