No more Skrill for Canada online casino players

No more Skrill for Canada online casino players It has been confirmed officially that Skrill, formerly known as Moneybookers, will be exiting the Canadian online gambling market starting next year. With heavy hearts we have to report that the ewallet options for Canadian online casino players have shrunk even more. Skrill, one of the most popular payment alternatives to the online casinos, has announced that starting on January 1st 2014 Skrill/Moneybookers will no longer work with customers from Canada.

 Many Canadian online casinos have begun sending the emails recommending players to change their payment details, if they use Skrill as an option. It is also advisable for any Canadian player to withdraw money, if any, they have on hand at their Skrill account. While no reason has been given to why Skrill has exited the market and speculations are running amok, Moneybookers is far from the first to shun Canada - Neteller did the same a few years ago, along with customer from the United States.

 Canadian casino players have long used the ewallets as an alternative to credit card deposits, which fortunately for them are not a problem, the way they are in the U.S. Lucky Nugget Casino (CAD$ 1,000 free bonus), one of the oldest and most popular online casino for Canadian players, is accepting both Visa and MasterCard from their Canadian customers, as well as several other ewallet alternatives. Instadebit, which works solely with Canadian residents, enables people to fund their casino accounts through them by using either a credit card or a bank account, which is great for people not willing or not having a credit card. Lucky Nugget also accepts Click2Pay and ECO card, both ewallet alternatives to Skrill. So as you can see, even though Srill's exit will inconvenience many in Canada, it's hardly the end of the world for the Canadian online casino player.
