What is Skrill?

Skrill is essentially an e-wallet, which allows you to safely, and securely transfer funds to and from a multitude of gambling sites. The concept is very simple in that Skrill will act as a virtual wallet and instead of having to enter bank details to your bookmaker of choice, you can use Skrill as your ‘middle man’ to avoid having to use personal information relating to your bank.

How it works

The first step is registering an account with Skrill and then linking a bank account or credit card to your file. You will need to do this only once if you wish, but you can link up multiple banking options if you wish.

The next step is fund your account from your payment methods of choice; usually your bank account. Once you have funds in your account you can then transfer them to gambling merchants to fund your betting accounts. Your betting account will have no details of your Skrill account on record and each transaction will be given a unique code merely so they can be tracked.

Using Skrill for online gambling

One of the reasons why Skrill has become so popular is the fact that it can be accessed in so many countries. Like all e-wallets, there are some, which are prohibited, and these include Afghanistan, Cuba, Eritrea, Iran, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, Libya, North Korea, North Sudan, South Sudan or Syria. It’s also worth noting that Skrill cannot be used for gambling purposes from United States of America, Turkey, China, Malaysia and Israel.


Like so many e-wallets these days, Skrill is massively popular due to the fact that transactions can be completed much quicker that that of using bank cards or credit cards. For example, if you want to withdraw funds from your betting account then the typical withdrawal time for most bookmakers will be 2 – 14 days. This is pretty standard within the gambling industry, but by using an e-wallet such as Skrill you will often get your funds straight into your Skrill account within a matter of hours.

Similarly to the likes of PayPal and Neteller, when you register with Skrill you are going to be able to get your hands on a Skrill pre-paid card. This card will be linked up to your Skrill account and can be used just like any MasterCard at accepting points of sales and ATM’s.

As so many users of Skrill are using the service within the gambling industry, Skrill have been very shrewd and managed to get people who use their service exclusive bonuses from dozens of bookmakers and casinos around the world. For example, if you use Skrill somewhere like TitanBet then you will be able to claim their welcome bonus of £200 plus an extra £50 as a Skrill customer.


Skrill, or MoneyBookers as it was then known, was formed in 2001 by Daniel Klein and Benjamin Kullman, based out of London England. The company was formed following the success of the likes of Neteller and PayPal in that timeframe and within the first 18 months of trading they had already managed to register almost 2 million new users making them one of the fastest growing start up companies of the time.

The name change and re-brand came about in 2011 after the company had seen massive success and several takeovers including that of Investcorp Technology Partners in 2007 for £105 million, and then again in 2009 where the company was worth a reported £365 million, although the alter failed to pull through.

At the time of the re-brand, the company were ranked as the fastest growing privet equity backed firm in the UK by the Sunday Times, with over 25 million customer accounts and 120,000 merchant accounts, respectively.

The latest and most recent takeover came in 2015 where Optimal Payments bought the firm for a staggering £1.1 billion in March 2015. The company have also purchased that of rival e-wallet UKash, again underlining their dominance within the business sector.
