Western Union is one of the popular payment methods back when online casinos were still developing. With a history going back to 1871, the company is one of the most successful money transfer services in the world, with MoneyGram coming in a close second.
The payment channel is mostly available to players in the United States. But unlike credit/debit card or cryptocurrency payments, depositing via Western Union requires a longer process. Players must first ask their casino for details that they must provide to the Western Union agent that will enable the transfer. This agent will then inform the casino what the unique tracking number is before the latter credits the amount to the bettor’s casino account.
Withdrawing, meanwhile, requires the same process. After requesting a cash-out, casino gamers will receive a unique tracking number, which they will use to withdraw the funds from a Western Union-affiliated agent.
