In order to use this service in any shape, way or form, customers will need to open an account at one of the 300 branches of Raiffeisen Bank based in the Czech Republic. Upon doing this, you’ll receive several different security keys, which provides access to the various different eKonto features. The actual account itself has three different online payment solutions available to take advantage of, which are ‘Direct Banking’, ‘Debit Payment Cards’ and ‘Shopping Over the Internet’. Regardless of which of these methods you use to purchase goods or services, you can guarantee that they’ll all be instant transactions.
When it comes to depositing into your online gaming account, you will obviously need to be logged into the casino in the first instance. Then, you should head over to the cashier page. Here, you’ll find a list of all the different depositing methods offered by the platform, and you’ll need to select eKonto as your preferred method. Doing so will re-direct you to the website of eKonto Direct Banking, and you’ll need to log in to your account with your own credentials. Check that the deposit amount you would like to transfer is correct, and then confirm the pre-filled deposit form. After doing so, your funds will be instantly sent from your bank account to your gaming account.
eKonto do also provide both Visa and MasterCard debit cards and a MasterCard InternetCard, which are also able to be used in the way that a standard card is used at the cashier, and these are also instant transactions. However, there isn’t as much information passed between yourself and the casino platform with the standard internet bank transfer, so it’s considered to be a little bit safer than the alternatives. Unfortunately, casinos don’t allow withdrawals to be made via this method, so you’ll have to resort to a standard bank wire transfer of winnings, which can take up to five business days in general.
