All online casinos that accept Qiwi focus on gamblers from the CIS states since in this region the platform is especially popular. In European countries this payment system cannot compete with such major players as PayPal, Neteller, or Skrill.
Gamblers are required to undergo an obligatory account verification procedure. Users who do not provide their passport details, will get an account with the smallest limit (opportunity to make financial operations for not more than RUR 30,000 a month) and will not be able to withdraw funds.
Apart from providing passport details and undergoing identity verification, customers are required to indicate their taxpayer identification number. This means that all revenues of online casinos that cooperate with Qiwi are controlled by the Russian Federal Tax Service.
Al Qiwi users are divided into three groups depending on their user status:
- Minimal. Gets assigned to all the registered users. Such a status enables players to pay services and transfers funds for up to RUR 40,000 a month but no more than RUR 15,000 per transaction.
- Basic. Can be obtained after indicating personal data and submitting a passport copy. The limit for monthly payments and withdrawals will be increased to RUR 200,000 (up to RUR 60,000 per transaction).
- Professional. Such a status gets assigned only after producing the passport in one of Qiwi or Qiwi partners’ offices. The monthly payment limit is RUR 4,000,000 (up to RUR 500,000 per transaction).
The TOP Qiwi casinos accept payments notwithstanding the wallet type. However, withdrawals can be made only if the wallet owner has submitted his passport details and was granted at least the Basic status.
Customers can withdraw funds on their bank cards or special Qiwi cards, their balance being equal to the amount of money available on your Qiwi account. Such cards work just like standard bank cards. The use of a Qiwi card does not require transferring funds from the corresponding wallet. However, if a withdrawal is made on a third bank card, the user will be charged a commission fee equal to 2% + RUR 50.
Qiwi allows making deposits in online casinos with no commission fees. The same rule applies to withdrawing funds from a casino account to a Qiwi wallet. This is the system’s biggest advantage that makes it so popular among gamblers.
Users can make withdrawals from their casino accounts to Qiwi with no apprehensions whatsoever as long as no one else has access to their phone number. To render transactions as secure as possible, it is recommended to use the phone number that no one else knows. In such a case hacking a Qiwi account is next to impossible.
