PayPal comes to Betfair
Betfair (now FanDuel) announced that it was adding PayPal to its platform on Wednesday.
Betfair previously offered a number of ways to withdraw cash from the site for its users, including:
- Cash at the Golden Nugget cage
- Betfair Prepaid Card
There is no shortage of ways to get your money onto the site, as well. But PayPal offers the quickest and most convenient way to move money off and on Betfair’s online casino in NJ. Users, old and new and alike, will likely enjoy the convenience of using PayPal for cashiering at Betfair.
Other NJ casinos with PayPal
PayPal first went live for some New Jersey online casinos and poker rooms back in 2015.
Today, the list of operators that take PayPal include:
PayPal’s service in NJ should ease other states considering iGaming
While the NJ online casino industry is succeeding on its own — to the tune of $20 million a month — it also serves another purpose.
It’s a testing ground for the US regulated online gambling and poker market, which currently consists of NJ, Nevada and Delaware. A number of other states have seriously considered iGaming of late, including Pennsylvania, Illinois and New York.
PayPal being integrated into online casinos now in New Jersey should make it easier for that step to be taken in any other state that legalizes iGaming down the road. Before PayPal, the NJ iGaming industry was hampered by payment processing issues in its early months and years.
So one small step for Betfair and PayPal likely means easier cashiering down the road across the regulated US iGaming industry.
