As the popularity of online bingo sites has grown and technology has advanced, the way in which you can pay for your favourite games has changed dramatically. These days you can even charge your bingo account to your phone bill.Whether you have a pay as you go mobile or a pay monthly model, it is possible to deduct money from your bill to pay for your favourite games. So, how can you do this?
Phone bill payments
The way in which phone bill payments work will depend upon the type of phone you are using. While the most popular type of phone bill payments are made using a mobile phone, it is possible to also use your landline. Landline payments aren’t very common, but they can still be found. Basically after choosing the right option at the checkout, the money will be added to your monthly landline bill. Some sites may require you to make the payment over the phone. However, the majority will let you do it completely online. Mobile payments are the most popular choice as they tend to be the most convenient. If you’re using a pay monthly mobile, you don’t even need to have money on you straight away. It is added to your monthly bill so you can play your favourite bingo games, even if you don’t have any money. However, if you are using a pay as you go mobile, the money will be deducted straight from your available credit; so you will need to have the money available if you choose this option.
Do all operators allow mobile payments?
All of the major mobile operators support phone bill payments. However, each bingo site will support different operators. Therefore it is advised to check out which ones your chosen site does support before you sign up.
What are the benefits?
There are a number of benefits of using this payment method. Firstly you get to make the deposit instantly, even if you don’t have available funds (if you’re using pay monthly). The money goes straight into your bingo account, yet you aren’t charged for it until your next bill comes through. It is also extremely convenient. Enabling you to top up no matter where you are, you never have to miss out on your favourite games. So if there’s a particular game coming up that you really want to play but you’ve ran out of funds, you don’t need to worry. Simply choose the phone bill payment method at the checkout and you’ll soon have the necessary funds in your account.
Things to be aware of
As with all types of payment, there are things you should consider before you choose this option. Due to the fact that it is so easy to spend money that you don’t currently have, there is a risk that you will run up a really high phone bill. For this reason it is always a good idea to track your spending so that you don’t end up getting a nasty surprise the next time your phone bill comes through.
