How to get a Laser card
At the moment only the National Irish Bank offers Laser cards. This means that is the particular bank you have to set up an account with, should you wish to have a card. The casino you want to play with might however also accept other debit cards should you not do business with the National Irish Bank, meaning the latter is a better option for Canadian players.
How to deposit
Depositing with a debit card is easy. Firstly, check that the casino accepts deposits from Laser cards, and also make sure you have a sufficient amount of money in your bank account to make the deposit. Log in to the casino, and in the cashier select ‘Laser’ or ‘credit/debit card’, from here, enter the amount you wish to deposit and follow the instructions to complete your deposit.
Why you should use Laser
With Laser as your deposit method of choice, convenience is really at your fingertips. You will not need to do any online verification processes or open accounts with any third parties to make your transactions. All you have to do is enter the card details to the casino and you are good to go, seeing as the deposits are always instant.
Why this card might not be for you
Of course, as with other cards, you will not have the same level of security using Laser as you would with an e-wallet. This is due to the fact that you have to disclose your financial details in the form of a card number to make a deposit. There is always a risk involved with sharing this kind of data online, so make sure the casino you are depositing into is a trustworthy one, and that your computer is virus-free.
If you plan to withdraw funds from your casino account at some point, you will have to find an alternative method to do so, as Laser is not available for withdrawals. The casino’s customer support team should be able to assist you in finding the optimal withdrawal method fit for your needs.
