New Zealand casino players choose e-wallets like Neteller as a payment method for security, speed and variety. Established in 1999, Neteller is one of the oldest electronic payment systems and one of the most secure, because you’re not required to share your financial details directly with the casino; all funds are transferred via your Neteller account, not your bank account or credit card. There are several ways in which you can add funds into your Neteller account and transfers reach your online casino account immediately. See our Payment Methods page to find more information about alternative methods.
Setting up a Neteller Account:
It’s quick and easy to establish an account to use at Neteller casinos. It’s also much safer than funding your account directly from a credit card or using bank transfers, as you don’t share your details with the online casino (important if you play at more than one site). Also, as they specialise in electronic fund transfers, Neteller employ the most sophisticated encryption technology to keep your transactions private.
Neteller also has a pre-paid Mastercard— Net+—which can be used anywhere that Mastercard is accepted (including ATMs) and for online shopping.
When you want to withdraw money from your Neteller account, you can use a Member Wire, where funds are sent electronically to your bank account (between 2 – 10 business days to process and there is a fee), or via Bank Draft, which is the recommended method for New Zealand.
Players from New Zealand also have several options when for depositing funds into a Neteller account (some fees apply):
- direct bank transfer, local bank deposits and iDeal—free
- Visa and Mastercard credit and debit cards—1.9%-4.95%
- POLi—5% (from November 2014)
You can also apply for a Net+ pre-paid Mastercard, available as either a plastic or a virtual card (for a one-off fee). In addition, Neteller provides a free money transfer service (forex charges are applicable). Accessing these services requires verification of your Neteller account by providing several forms of identification.
Why Use Neteller at an Online Casino
We recommend Neteller because there are no charges to deposit or withdraw into an online casino account, and because you are not subject to the restrictions that some financial institutions place on credit cards being used at online casinos. There is also enhanced privacy, as no casino transactions appear on your bank statements while your financial information is not shared with third parties.
Also, at some of our recommended casinos, such as Platinum Play and Royal Vegas, new players receive an additional 10% match Neteller casino bonus (up to $100) when a first deposit is made using Neteller.

We recommend that all New Zealand players use an e-wallet to fund their online casino account, and in our opinion Neteller is one of the very best.
