How to get an iDebit account
In order for you to get an account with this deposit method you need to be a resident of Canada, over 18 years of age, and also have a bank account at one of the banks in the country that offers this payment solution to their members.
Banks that currently offer this service:
- Bank of Montreal
- Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce
- National Bank
- Royal Bank of Canada
- Simplii Financial
- TD Canada Trust
Once you have established that you fit the profile, all you need to do is head on over to the iDebit website to sign up and connect your bank account. This method also allows new users to sign-up at the same time as their first transaction, meaning that you can choose the deposit method in the casino of your choice, and go through the registration process at the same time that you’re making your deposit.
Making a deposit with iDebit
Using this deposit solution to top-up your casino account balance is super easy. First, you need to find a casino that accepts the method. Our list of casinos available to Canadian players is full of them, as this method is well used by residents. Make sure that you are logged in to the casino, and find the deposit method logo in the cashier of the casino. Enter the amount you wish to deposit and click to proceed. You will be asked to log in to your iDebit wallet account to approve the transaction and once you have done so, the funds are readily available for you to use in the online casino!
Why you should use this payment option
Since PayPal is not very widely available to Canadian players, this payment solution is the closest a player in Canada can get to the convenience of using such a well-renowned e-wallet. It might even be better, as transactions are completely free both to and from your e-wallet, meaning that you can be sure to make use of the full amount deposited to your casino balance.
Something that also makes this method stand out from the crowd as well as make your life easier is that it is commonly accepted as a withdrawal method in most casinos online that offer it as a deposit method. This means that you only need to keep track of one payment solution when playing, making it easier to have your bankroll under control in one place.
Why this payment solution might not be for you
Of course, if you have your bank account at a bank that is not listed amongst the ones in the list above, you would have to either go through the process of getting a new bank account set up at one of those banks or simply make use of another payment option available to Canadian players.
It might also not be the best transaction service for those who wish to keep their bank account and gambling funds separate, and since this e-wallet only allows payments to be made via the user's bank account, it might be better to make use of a different e-wallet, a prepaid card or a voucher solution.
