Similar to the Netherlands’ iDeal and the Canadian Citadel, Sofort acts as a middleman between the bank and the recipient of the payment. This way, your sensitive information is kept private. There is no need to open a Sofort account, either.
Sofort Casino Deposits
Before you select Sofort as your payment method, you need to check if the bank you have an account with is affiliated with Sofort. Then, you can proceed to making a deposit. For the purpose, you need to go to the cashier page of your chosen casino, enter the amount you would like to deposit and select Sofort from the list of available options. You will be redirected to your online banking page where you need to confirm the transaction. Sofort uses a PIN code/ password/ username, in combination with a TAN (Transaction Authentication Number) code. The latter can be used for one transaction only, and it becomes invalid once you use it once.
Sofort Casino Withdrawals
You can only make deposits via Sofort. To cash out your winnings, consult with the customer support. You will be most probably be advised to use the bank transfer option.
Casinos charge no fees for using Sofort as a deposit method. However, the bank you have an account with might charge you for processing the payment.
Countries Where Sofort is Available
