We outline the fastest and most convenient way of getting your winnings from your casino into your hand.
Online casino games are rapidly growing in popularity at the moment due to the closure of all casinos and the cancelation of all sporting events across America. New Jersey residents are unable to make trips to the bank and aren’t likely to be withdrawing cash from ATMs. This is where Play+ comes in.
What is a Play+ Card?
Play+ is ‘the cashless way to play’ – a card which holds funds virtually in a FDIC insured bank account. Each casino has their own Play+ Card, which can be used to fund your favorite online casino games and withdraw casino winnings.
A lot of people prefer not to use their own banks to fund their online gambling and would rather have an alternative to online wallets like PayPal. Similarly, a number of casinos and sportsbooks do not allow funding from credit cards and certain banks. This is why Play+ is great, as it offers players an accepted alternative to fund their casino games.
Why should I get a Play+ Card?
One simple reason. Quick access to your wins. If you win at an online casino you have to make a withdrawal to your bank, your PayPal account or your debit card and it can takes ages. Not only will you potentially have to wait a week for your funds to appear (during which team they are neither in the casino nor in your account) but there is also the option of cancelling the withdrawal and re-adding all of the funds back to your account. This can be too tempting for some gamblers.
A Play+ Card will let you withdraw the money instantly (it’ll be there in an hour) and then you can go to the ATM and withdraw however much you want in cash and put it in your pocket. Or you can use it to buy something online – even toilet paper!
If you want to put some back into the casino then that’s your choice, but you can do it with just a fraction of what you have withdrawn and whenever you choose. You won’t be forced to cancel or reverse the withdrawal as it’s now your money.
What are the other benefits of a Play+ Card?
In addition to the main benefit of getting quick access to your online casino wins, having your own Play+ Card has even more advantages. Owning a Play+ Card means that you don’t need to pay high ATM or winnings fees. Instead, you can simply cash-out by uploading game winnings directly to the Play+ account.
Safety and security are important to all of us too, which is what you are guaranteed with a Play+ Card. There is no need to carry physical cash around if you have the card and Play+ accounts are protected by the FDIC with 24/7 monitoring. The Play+ Card is also prepaid, so you can stay in control of your money.
A Play+ Card isn’t just good for online casino games. When sport returns, Play+ can also be used to withdraw or spend any winnings earned from sports betting.
How do I get a Play+ Card?
