1. Create an account on Skrill

Creating an account on Skrill will only take a few minutes of your time. First, you will need to put your name and last name.

Then, select your country and your preferred currency. You will then need to provide a valid email address that your use because you will need to confirm it and set a password.

Withdrawing your winnings to Skrill

The process of withdrawing money from your betting account is simple and quick too, but withdrawals are not as instantaneous as deposits. If you are a VIP member of a betting site though, you can be rewarded with quicker timescales.

1. Withdraw the money to your Skrill wallet

The first thing to do when wanting to withdraw money from a betting site to your Skrill account is to check your eligibility. Log in to your betting account and verify whether you are eligible to make a withdrawal or not.

If you live in the United States, you will also have to verify your age. Then, you will need to claim your withdrawals. Click on ‘Withdrawals’ on your betting account. Claim one or more withdrawals and put the amount you want to withdraw.

Then, enter your email address. KYC and ID verification will be required to make a withdrawal, just like in an international bank transfer. Click on ‘Continue’ or 'Claim'. All you have to do now is to wait for your funds to be collected.

2. Ways to withdraw from your Skrill account:

Now that your hard-earned money from your betting account have arrived in your Skrill account, it is time to withdraw them too.

You can withdraw money from your e-wallet to your bank account, or you can use your Skrill Mastercard to withdraw from ATM. Also, you can even buy cryptocurrencies using Skrill.

To request a withdrawal you have to log in to your Skrill Account and select your preferred withdrawal method and then enter the amount to be withdrawn. To withdraw money from Skrill to your bank account, go to 'Send'.

There choose the 'Send money to a bank account' option. Select your currency and country and enter the desired amount you're sending. Fill in your bank information and complete all the other details.

Advantages and disadvantages of this e-Wallet

Skrill, like any other transaction method, has its own pros and cons of using it. Of course, it has more advantages than disadvantages, but we can't overlook the cons of it too.

Advantages

  • Your personal card & bank account is held private. Skrill has high security standards and is a totally safe electronic wallet. It is in compliance with the Payment Card Industry security standard and is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. It does everything to keep your personal information and money safe.
  • Skrill Mastecard. Skrill offers its own prepaid card which is issued under a license from Visa Inc. It can be used to access the money in your Skrill Account. It can be used at any location that displays the Visa acceptance mark. This includes restaurants, shops, telephone, etc. This virtual card can be used only where a physical one is not required.

Disadvantages

  • Withdrawal fee. When withdrawing from Skrill to your bank account, there are some fees applied that depend on where you are transferring the money.

If you are transferring money to Neteller you will have to pay 3.49 % of the money amount as a fee and for the transfers to Visa card a 3.99% fee.
  • Not accepted by all sportsbooks. We said that Skrill is accepted by most sportsbooks but not by all of them. Of course, it has a very good rate of acceptance, but unlike Visa or Mastercard, it is not available at every single sports betting site.

Skrill verification process

Verifying your account on Skrill will also give you some benefits like higher transaction limits and new features. First, you need to log into your account. Second, you have to go to the 'Settings' and then to the 'Verification'. Thirdly, you have to complete the verification process.
