Skrill aka Moneybookers Stopping Canadian Sportsbook Deposits

skrill-no-canadian-sportsbook-depositsIt appears that online money transfer service Skrill, previously known as Moneybookers will stop processing online sportbook, casino, and poker deposits for Canadians after January 2nd 2014. No definitive reason has been provided for the change except that the decision was made after an operational review. Skrill / Moneybookers was never the number one deposit method in Canada but they did have a large number of Canadian clients. They did a great job facilitating deposits and withdraws to and from online sportsbooks and Canadian bank accounts and they had a strong reputation with regards to security of players funds. Canadian payment processor Instadebit arrived on the scene soon after Moneybookers and became a better alternative for residents of Canada. Setting up an Instadebit account was easier, and customer service was much better. Instadebit was a cheaper and faster alternative to transfer funds from your Canadian personal bank accounts to your online sportsbook accounts. Its possible that due to the increased competition in the Canadian market for payment processing, Skrill decided to refocus their business elsewhere. After all, they were primarily a European company.
