This guide looks at how the payment method pay by phone bill works, so you can have the confidence to use it and enjoy a more convenient mobile gaming experience.
What is phone billing?
Phone billing means that you deposit money into your mobile casino account using your phone. You make deposits by using text message/SMS and receive an SMS receipt once the deposit has been made. If you’re on a monthly contract, any deposits you’ve made will show up on your phone bill. However, if you’re on pay-as-you-go, making deposits will take up some of your credit. The following mobile phone companies let you make these deposits: BT, EE, Lebara, O2, Tesco, Three, Virgin Mobile and Vodafone.
How does phone billing work?
Phone billing is really easy to do and there will be simple instructions on the bingo app or site under the ‘Deposit’ section. All you have to do is follow these instructions and it should only take a minute or two for the deposit to be made. You’ll receive a text message once the deposit has gone through. You can keep track of your deposits by keeping these receipts and checking them. If you’re on a monthly contract, it’s a good idea to keep your phone bill so you can keep track of your deposits that way as well. You’ll find that some mobile phone companies even have apps that let you check your balance and see how much money’s been going in and out of your account.Remember if you’re on pay-as-you-go that you’ll have to have enough credit before making deposits. If you try to make too many deposits without enough credit, you could find yourself getting blacklisted. Always have more than enough credit to make deposits and if you don’t have enough, don’t try making deposits.
Things to watch out for
When you receive your receipts and phone bills, always double-check them in case there’s a mistake or there’s something there that shouldn’t be there. If there’s something wrong with your receipt, just get in touch with your mobile phone company. It’s important to keep on top of your finances, especially if you’re on a monthly contract. This is because it can be easy to spend money when you’re not going to get billed till the end of the month. If you find yourself with not enough money to cover your bill, you could face restrictions or could even get blacklisted. Some phone companies have a number of limits already in place to stop people overspending. Double-check to see if yours has any of these in place.
