What is iDEAL

iDeal is an online payment method that’s linked to your Dutch bank account, allowing you to directly, safely and quickly transfer money from your bank account to an online merchant. Using iDeal in combination with your e-wallet or prepaid credit card allows you a budget to play with at different online casinos, without having to worry about going over your limit.

Paying with iDeal is only possible when you have a bank account with one of the following banks:

  • ABN AMRO
  • ASN Bank
  • Rabobank
  • SNS Bank
  • RegioBank
  • ING Bank
  • Friesland Bank
  • Triodos
  • Van Lanschot Bankiers

To use iDeal, you just need an online casino account and a Dutch bank account – then you’re all set to deposit real money to play.

Payments are handled securely online via your personal Internet banking account, so the steps you need to follow to make an iDeal payment vary according to your bank.

Depositing AT an ONLINE CASINO with iDEAL

Once you’re at an online casino, visit their payment page and select the ‘iDeal’ option.

Next, follow these steps:

  • Enter the amount you want to deposit.
  • You’ll be directed to a new pop-up screen where you’ll choose the bank you want to make your deposit with.
  • You’ll be directed to another pop-up screen – this time belonging to your chosen bank.
  • Here, you enter your bank account information and you’ll get a code that you need to enter in your Random Reader (Rabobank) or Digipas (ASN Bank) device. This will generate a signature code you’ll then enter into the digital form to confirm the payment.
  • The selected amount is deposited into your online casino account and you can start playing immediately.

Advantages of iDEAL Payments

The biggest advantage of paying with iDeal is that it’s a very safe and secure payment method. Because it’s a transaction that’s ‘bank-to-bank’, it maintains the highest levels of security.

Another advantage is the immediate availability of your deposited money. You don’t have to wait after making the deposit for the money to arrive into your online casino account. Instead, you can start playing mere seconds after the deposit has gone through.

Disadvantages of iDEAL payments

The biggest disadvantage to iDeal is the roundabout and quite time-consuming steps you have to follow to complete the transaction. You have to use your personal and bank-related information, have access to Internet banking, and generate security codes. On average, this can take up to several minutes to complete.

Another disadvantage is the fact that currently, only about one-third of all NetEnt casinos offer the iDeal payment method to players.

Overview of iDEAL CASINOS

You need to have a bank account at one of the Dutch banks affiliated with iDeal to use iDeal as a payment method.

Because of this, we think it’s much easier and convenient (not to mention, anonymous) to make an online casino deposit with an e-wallet or prepaid credit card. These payment methods allow the same advantages as iDeal, are accepted almost everywhere, and are a lot easier to use.
