Why Use Qiwi?
Players in some locations do not have access to traditional Visa cards. For these consumers, an alternate method such as Qiwi makes sense. Once registered, they can go to any of more than 100,000 kiosks to fund their card, then pay and play online.
Bank transfers, online wallets, debit and credit cards can be used to fund the account online.
How to Use Qiwi
Register and open a QW online or fund a card at a local kiosk. Cash or any number of other devices can be used to fund the account. Once funded, your cash is available for instant deposits.
Enter the casino cashier or banking section and choose Qiwi as your payment method. Enter the mobile phone number you provided when you registered your Qiwi account.
Enter the passcode that was sent when you registered your Qiwi account.
Choose the amount you want to deposit and complete the transaction.
Your funds will be available to play instantly and your QW account will reflect the deducted/deposited amount. There are no fees assessed by Qiwi for deposits. Some casinos may charge a nominal processing fee.
If depositing from a plastic card, go through the Visa options in the cashier just like any other Visa debit or credit card.
Sensitive financial data and personal information is not used in a Qiwi deposit transaction. All transfers occur using encryption so the system is virtually immune to hacking.
Qiwi provides highly secure internet banking. It protects its users’ sensitive data and private information. You can be assured that when using Qiwi, your transactions will be kept private and your banking information will stay safe.
It's good to keep in mind that your data is only as secure as your personal internet device, whether using a desktop, laptop, mobile internet browser, or mobile app. If you are using a public WiFi connection make sure your security settings are appropriate. Before using a virtual private network (VPN) to connect to the casino, be sure that the practice is not prohibited in the Terms and Conditions.
