    Hi all,

    Just had this email from thrills saying that they will be removing Neteller and Skrill has deposit and withdraw options from 12/02/2018?

    The email of course didn't answer or go into detail as for the reason of this either? So anyone else have any ideas or maybe a rep could respond and give us further details?

    Thanks

    Mmm, I wouldn't be thrilled about that.

    Seriously, what is the reason behind their decision, they could at least explain.

    Yeah well it means that gone are the days of faster withdraws for thrills and their sister casinos!

    It means that the process time will be upto 24 hours, then we have to wait 2-3 days for them to appear in our bank account instead?

    Maybe this is just for UK players?

    But still a strange move for them to do that though! I would have thought that Neteller and Skrill is the main deposit and withdraw options for the vast majority of people who play at online casinos? So this would mean that it would deter them from playing there after!

    Deffo possible it's only for UK players, although i heard more of these kind of reports here and there, i think there are a few threads on the forum here, where it was at least stipulated:

    In a nutshell, there a re a few reasons: Neteller (Skrill is from the same parent company) are great for most players, but demand pretty hefty fees on the Casino's, or other processors in-between.
    Now that international banking and direct banking have increased processing speed (pretty much instant) they have lost a big chunk of what made them stand out, i.o.w. attractive as a payment and WD option..that's the short and simple story :)

    Not to derail this thread, but interestingly GrandeVegas Casino where my payments from their GrandeVegasAffiliates Programme are sent to, have removed Skrill as a withdrawal option. This is a big PITA, as I have had to open an Ecopayz account and am still waiting for them to process my withdrawal. At least with Skrill it would take a couple of hours, if a withdrawal was actioned in the morning.

    I thought payments to Ecopayz were also quick, bummer Webzcas - hope don't more casinos will follow suit.

    Seriously, do you?
    Whenever I mention Skrill or Neteller to people they look at me blankly, and I have to explain, its a bit like paypal!
    Certainly talking about in the UK, I would put a weeks wages on the main deposit/withdraw option being cards (and to narrow that down further, debit cards)

    Payments to Ecopayz are quick. Withdrawing from Ecopayz to your bank account unfortunately is not. It takes up to three days to process your withdrawal and then up to five working days to hit your bank account. Unlike Paypal which is instant and Neteller and Skrill which can be a couple of hours.

    I binned Skrill off last year after they raised withdrawal fees again last year, nearly a fiver to withdraw.
    Can get it into your bank using debit cards just as quick nowadays as it always took next day for it to go in my bank.
    May be quicker and cheaper for Skrill VIP's, dont really know about that.

    Got the email and was gonna post this yesterday, just another player unfriendly move IMO, although I'm sure they have their reasons :rolleyes:

    Last experience with Thrills was actually excellent, Processed an outstanding KYC doc and withdrawal to Skrill whilst on chat, guess that won't be happening again.

    See a lot of casinos are adding Trustly which is another 'instant' method and I'd feel actually safer with this as if that day ever comes of a huge win, I'd rather have it in my bank than an e-wallet, downside is I opened skrill as I didn't want my bank statement peppered with gaming transactions (not that there would be that many these days :oops:)

    I feel others may follow suit as e-wallets have been subject to so much abuse over the years and a cause of casinos having to add so many terms to cover their ass, it was in the end, simpler to remove the option altogether.

    ever since neteller bought skrill they have been raising fees for players, so i suspect it could be same thing when it comes to fees we as players cant see (casinos fees) so cant say im surprised tbh. To cashout to visa card it used to be $3 or $4 before, now its ... 7.5% with no upper limit. Thats on top of their 3,99% exchange fees skrill has now. I mean seriously, might as well make it 50% while they are at it.

    I know they thought they now have monopoly over gambling markets with their skrill acquisition and probably figured whatever fees they charge people will have to use their service, so i for one am actually glad to see casinos are dropping them and really hope more casinos follow thrills lead.

    I stopped using skrill too a year ago. It was mainly because of the fact they forced 2 step authentication on deposits and withdraws. Then if the 2 step wasnt enough. I then kept getting the 3rd verify message when I deposited into a casino. Basically the third step was verify my skrill card number. I mean seriously 3 steps to deposit is a piss take. So I handed in the towel with Skrill.

    I use Neteller now. And I hope too that no other casinos remove Neteller as a deposit/withdraw option!!!

    Can't you have a prepaid card like Skrill & Neteller have, so you can just withdraw the money via ATM?

    that that Neteller and Skrill is the main deposit and withdraw options for the vast majority of people who play at online casinos?

    Honestly in the real world (rather than internet) I've never spoken to one person who has heard of either of them.
    Could just be all the people I know are dumb though :D would be interesting to see if the rep would give us an idea of what is more popular, I do think it would be country specific too, certainly in the UK I would be surprised if cards didn't make up at least 70% of transactions.

    Got put off e wallets when my account was put on review - for me it just creates another company that can slow the cash hitting my hands

    And anyway, the whole Sky Vegas 2hr debit card withdrawal and Trustly are both quicker and more importantly, free of fees.

    No tears shed but can imagine some may be peeved

    while your reply is greatly appreciated it hasnt actually answered a single question posted in this topic.

    Was it pulled for good? is it coming back? have turtles infested your neteller processing offices? so many questions, so few answers :)
