An important point is the list of countries from which the casino can accept payments by SMS. If the gambling establishment does not support replenishments from Canadian phone numbers, for example, then the debited money will not be credited to the targeted account at the gambling establishment, since it will not be transferred to the casino. However, the money either will not be returned to the phone number from which it was debited.
Replenishing an account at an online casino that accepts SMS takes a few minutes. But the time limits of the transfer of funds may vary depending on the operator and the amount of the deposit. Additionally, the time for the transferred money to appear in your online casino account will take even longer in case of currency conversion.
Despite its prevalence, this method of replenishing an account in online casinos with SMS is not the safest and easiest compared to other deposit methods. The first problem is that not all gambling establishments have a special program that will stop accepting funds via SMS if the daily limit for this number has been reached.
The limit is the sum of money that can be sent via SMS. If the user sends an amount exceeding this limit, then all funds above the established limits will be lost. At the same time, the casino will not be able to receive the money either.
The second problem is the cost of SMS that can vary greatly depending on the region and mobile operator. Far not all online casinos offering deposits via SMS include the cost of the message in the amount debited, which is why customers usually pay much from their mobile balance more than they intend.
The third problem is the risk of fraud. Phone scam is one of the most common fraudulent activities as it allows scammers to remain anonymous and deceive people who are used to trust information from SMS. Therefore, when making any transfers to an online casino using SMS, you need to pay attention to literally every detail.
