What is Purpose of Deposit?

When depositing money with credit or debit card, you will be asked to choose a purpose of use for the deposited money.

The 2 options for purpose of deposit are:

Gambling: the deposited money can be used for all types of payments with the Skrill account or Skrill Prepaid Mastercard®*, including transfers to gambling merchants.

Non-gambling: the deposited money can be used for all types of payments with the Skrill account or Skrill card, except transfers to gambling merchants.

 

Be careful when you choose purpose of use, as non-gambling funds cannot be used for gambling merchants (e.g. casino, sports betting, poker)

 

Good to note:

  • The purpose of deposit cannot be changed.
  • If you send money deposited with Non-Gambling purpose of deposit to another Skrill user, they won't be able to spend it on gambling sites either.
  • Money deposited with credit card can’t be used on UK gambling sites.

  • UK issued credit cards can’t be used on gambling sites.

  • If you don't see the option to choose the purpose of deposit it means that you can only use the deposited money for non-gambling purposes.
