If you’re a passionate gambler who is trying to transition from land-based gambling to online casinos, you’ve two things to take into consideration: finding the perfect online casino and the best payment method to transfer your funds. And that’s where 24Bettle Casino comes in handy. We’ve compiled a comprehensive list of reliable payment options that’ll suit all your banking needs.

The Transformative Power of Today’s Technology

With today’s technological advancements, online casinos aren’t anything close to boring. There’s always something interesting for everyone. No matter who you’re or your place of residence, there’s a dependable payment option for you to use while playing any type of gambling casino. The various payment methods provided by the following sites are what make online betting possible.

With versatile deposit/withdrawal options, these payment methods allow people from all corners of the world to get something that would satisfy their personal needs. However, preferences in this area differ from one country to another due to the availability as well as the convenience of these payment tools. Each option comes with its own benefits and limitations, so it’s advisable that you carefully study all of them so as to pick the one that best suits your personal needs. Factors to consider while making this decision are commission charges and the transaction speed. Before making your first deposit to a casino, ensure that you read the Terms & Conditions for different payment methods. Don’t forget to take advantage of the Welcome Bonus whilst you are at it!

Credit & Debit Cards

Credit & debit cards are the most popular options today. They’re gradually winning over cash payments across the entire globe. For instance, over 56 percent of all mobile transactions in the United States are made via debit cards, while 48 percent are done through credit cards. Maestro, Visa, and MasterCard are popular choices for online casinos

Visa presents numerous options, such as Visa Electron plus Visa Debit, which are easily accessible to users all over the world. MasterCard, on the other hand, isn’t accepted by many casinos like Visa, but statistics show that it’s another great payment tool.

When making online casino payments, American Express cards can be an interesting option. It’s extremely stable and the most trusted banking cards worldwide. However, it is an ‘American tool’ and USA has a nation-wide online gambling ban. So, the majority of online casinos accept credit and debit cards.

Pre-Paid Cards & Vouchers

Prepaid cards, coupons, as well as vouchers (like Ukash & Paysafecard) are gaining more popularity today due to the higher level of security they offer as compared to direct payments.

Paysafecard is an incredible solution that’s accepted by over 3,500 websites, including almost all online casinos. Just like its name, Paysafe delivers quality transfers, while guaranteeing maximum security, minimal fees, as well as fast transactions. It’s more popular in Europe, particularly the United Kingdom. Remember, one can’t purchase Paysafecards in the United States, but you can opt to buy them elsewhere and make electronic deposits on it. This would enable an individual to play in an online casino that accepts USA citizens and utilize this banking method.

E-Wallets

E-wallets are certainly going to become the leading online payment method very soon. They’re currently the most preferred banking route for internet-based casino withdrawals because of their ease of use as well as the speed of transaction. Contrary to other banking options, casinos are a bit fast when processing payment transfers through electronic-wallets, which enables players to get their payments within 24 hours. With over 200 million active accounts, PayPal is the most common e-wallet in the world. Other available e-wallets for online betting are Skrill & Neteller.

Bank Wire Transfers

Most online gambling websites accept bank wire transfers. This is because of the extreme security associated with this transaction method, which reduces the risk for all involved parties. Nevertheless, a large portion of this security is achieved through a detailed identity check, which lasts for quite some time. Typically, this kind of payment can take about 7 days. The bank fees charged are also quite high, but this depends on the amount you’re depositing.

 Instant Bank Transfers

Trust is the most popular form of instant bank transfers that offers a great advantage for time-bound promotions as your funds literally get to the online casino instantly. Compared to regular transfers, this payment tool is super-fast and highly reliable. If transaction speed is what you’re after, then look no further.

Bitcoin

Though Bitcoin casinos aren’t very common, most leading portals are now starting to use this electronic currency. Bitcoins are increasingly gaining popularity because of their guaranteed security. This payment method, which is more common amongst American players, offers quite a lower house edge and are instant.

The people of the human race are experts at making bad decisions, and we make these in a lot of aspects in our lives, sometimes on an hour to hour base, if we are that unlucky. In many aspects, we have to make a choice and see it through, and this can be clearly seen in gambling and betting. Once a bet is made it cannot change. However, we can combat this strange desire to pick the wrong path by learning strategies, knowing the rules, and using our heads instead of our hearts.

Betting can be fun, but making the wrong choices can put you off the experience of gambling, and could have the potential to ruin your life, as the horror stories once told you. There are ways to stop making idiotic decisions if you pay attention to your surrounds and yourself. But first:

Why Do We Choose Wrong?

Many of us do not mean, but it is part of our nature and there are reasons for it. It can be the smallest thing such as cheating on a diet when you are close to stripping the last few grams to your ideal weight, to murdering someone. Not saying you would do such a thing, but a bit of over exaggeration gets the point across. There can be three reasons why we pick the wrong side, and these can apply to betting:

  • We want it. There are two kinds of pleasures that we experience, and those are: ‘liking’ which is the state of happiness when you do something, regardless how small. The second one is ‘wanting’. This factor is all about the thrill of the chase, and the excitement behind it. ‘Wanting’ is what can force us make bad decisions such as wagering more than you have, just to feel the risk of a heart attack when the beat speed up.
  • We want what we have not. This is an old, cliché saying that rings true. Betting is about getting a win; a win is usually about getting more of something back and in many of the cases that something is money. Many of us can have enough money to survive the month, but a lot of us want more because we do not have more. Therefore, we risk losing what we have to get more.
  • Once we start, it is hard to stop. Bad choices can have a ripple effect where many people think they can get out of a bad situation by adding to the fire instead of walking away from it. Some think that if they keep playing, they will get their due, but luck is not brought.

As mentioned we do not mean to make the wrong choices, especially when it comes to our wallets. This is why when we place bets we should keep a certain set of rules in mind as not to lose everything. Losing a little is fine, and is part of the game, but more can be harmful.

Mistakes Made While Betting

There are many mistakes that can be made while going to a game night but hopefully this article could help you avoid them. One of the mistakes is not having a limit in terms of money and time. While playing, there is a chance that you could lose, but you have the choice on how much to lose as well as how much to gain. Winners know when to stop, so if you win a bet, best is to go with your winnings.

Time goes by quite quickly when you are having fun, and some places (like casinos) are designed for you to be focused on the game only. This is why having a time limit is helpful so that you are not trapped in a timeless loop. Plus the more time you spend at the betting ring, the more money you are likely to spend.

Some gamblers bet with their heart and not their mind. This is not a good idea since it can backfire many times. Thinking with your heart is not logical and, although gambling is games of chance, it is can also be a game of logic. For example, a horse that has won the past few races could win again, or could lose since they are tried.

That being said having options is a good thing and a great draw to the gambling world, but choosing too many could lead you to confusion and frustration, plus you lose the thrill of the game because you would be to focus on what amount went where and when, etc. Betting should add to the experience of a game, not distract from it.

A major mistake that everyone makes (not only gamblers) is not reading properly. This is an important factor because a slight change to the name of the game is a completely different game than the one you got used to playing. Another thing is that knowing the rules can be to your benefit since it can increase your fun, and if you are lucky your chances. Betting is all about having fun, enjoying the ride, but not making an income. Play safe, play smart and think.

“The Bite” Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield Fight in Las Vegas on June 28, 1997

On this Date: June 28, 1997, at the Evander Holyfield vs. Mike Tyson fight, Mike Tyson bit off part of Evander Holyfield ear.  The Fight was billed at the ‘The Sound and the Fury” at the MGM Grand Garden Arena for the WBA Heavyweight Championship referee by Lane Mils. But, the fight will go down in history as the “Bite Fight”.

The fight began with Holyfield dominating Tyson. Holyfield won the first three rounds. As the third round was about to begin, Tyson came out of his corner without his mouthpiece.  With forty seconds remaining in the round Holyfield got Tyson in a clinch, and Tyson rolled his head above Holyfield’s shoulder and bit Holyfield on his right ear, a one-inch piece of cartilage from the top of the ear, and spitting out the piece of ear on the ring floor.

The fight was stopped for a few minutes as the referee debated the status of the fight. The fight was resumed. During another clinch, Tyson bit Holyfield’s left ear. Holyfield threw his hands around to get out of the clinch and jumped back. Tyson’s second bite just scarred Holyfield’s ear. Lane did not stop the fight this time, so the two men continued fighting until time expired. The men walked back to their respective corners when the second bite was discovered and the fight was then stopped.

A scuffle broke out in the ring between the Tyson corner , security surrounded Holyfield in his corner and Tyson took swings at the people in his way, but was taken back to his corner by security.

Twenty-five minutes after the brawl ended, announcer Jimmy Lennon Jr. read the decision: “Ladies and gentlemen, this bout has been stopped at the end of round number three, the referee in charge, Mills Lane, disqualifies Mike Tyson for biting Evander Holyfield in both ears, the winner by way of disqualification and still the WBA Champion of the world, Evander ‘The Real Deal’ Holyfield!” Holyfield won the WBA’s boxing championship, prize, money and trophy because of Tyson’s disqualification.

Tyson was sentenced with a permanent suspension from boxing and his license cancelled indefinitely. Tyson was also fined $3,000,000 and had to serve a period of community service. After a year and an appeal in court, Tyson’s license was reinstated.

On October 16, 2009 on The Oprah Winfrey Show Tyson apologized to Holyfield. Holyfield accepted his apology and forgave Tyson. When Tyson and Holyfield retired from boxing they befriended each other and are now close friends today.
