South African players report having trouble with the EasyEft Payment system

by John Ashley -December 22, 2020

We have been getting a few complaints of players having problems depositing and transferring funds using EasyEft from different casino websites. So far, it is not clear just what the 

cause is, whether there are operational problems to do with the network, or whether the cause is something more significant, However, our team is currently investigating the issue and reaching out to several casinos for their comments on the matter.

Until then, don’t worry we’ve got you covered. We have a whole list of payment methods that are available at the majority of online casinos. These payment alternatives have been reviewed and rated by our in-house team of experts. 

In the meantime, we’ve selected the top three payment methods we recommend as great alternatives to EasyEft, which are Skrill, Visa/Mastercard and Entropay.

Here’s some useful information on these top three alternatives:

Payment SystemGeneral Info
Skrill Skrill is an online banking processor with vast parallels to Paypal. It is a legal and very ideal form of payment for South African gamers. The company charges 1% on all local payments and global payments. An important note is that it is a common practise for issuers to charge a cash advance fee when this card is going to be used for gambling purposes.
Visa/ Mastercard For more than 50 years, mastercard has built its reputation as one of the most popular payment methods. These cards tend to have an average charge of 1.55%-2.6%. Its user friendliness and household name make it a goto option for any online gambler. Other Visas typically charge 1.43%-2.4% making them a similar option for all.
Entropay Part of the Ixaris Group Holdings Limited, entropay is an e-wallet that helps deposit and withdrawal of money easily. Clients are faced by a 4.95% loading fee from credit/debit cards and also a 1.95% bank account deposit fee. All in all, a very good option for South African gamblers.
