PayPal Online Casinos

Several PayPal online casinos are available in Michigan, as the longstanding leader in the digital wallet space is one of the most popular casino payment methods. There’s very little hard data on how commonly players use it, though it is widely accepted as a popular form of deposit and withdrawal. In this guide, we broke down everything you need to know about using PayPal at online casinos in Michigan.

Using PayPal at online casinos

PayPal is easy to use at online casinos. Simply connect your existing PayPal account to the online casino via the cashier page (by making a deposit) and follow the prompts from there. Many players prefer PayPal for its ease of use and flexibility. You can connect various payment methods to your PayPal account, such as a bank account, Venmo, Skrill, debit card, and credit card. This lets you choose specific payment sources for each deposit.

One potential downside of PayPal comes from the online casinos themselves. Many only allow PayPal withdrawals if you’ve already made a deposit using the method. For players who prefer to deposit using other methods, PayPal might not be the ideal option.

How to create a PayPal Account

Creating a PayPal account is easy. First, have a few personal details and payment methods ready including an ID, credit or debit card, and ideally your bank account and routing number. From there, follow these steps:

  1. Head to the PayPal website and click “Sign Up.”
  2. On the next page, choose “Personal” and select “Get Started.”
  3. Enter your email.
  4. Provide your phone number and verify it using the code sent to you.
  5. Choose a password.
  6. Provide your legal first and last name along with your street address.
  7. Check the box to acknowledge the terms and conditions, then click “Agree and Create Account.”

This completes your account. After that’s done, you can connect whichever payment methods you’d like (checking, credit card, etc.). Each has its own process, but it doesn’t take long—a few minutes for each method. We recommend including a bank account and a credit or debit card to give your account some flexibility.

Making a deposit at an online casino using PayPal

Now that you’re familiar with PayPal, how to create an account, and which casinos accept it, you can make your deposit. This process may vary slightly at each online casino, but the concept remains the same.

  1. Start at your preferred online casino and select “Deposit.”
  2. Choose “PayPal” from the list of deposit methods.
  3. Connect your PayPal account by following the prompts; this usually involves entering your credentials and allowing PayPal to connect to the casino.
  4. Choose your deposit amount and complete the process.

After you’ve done this once, you will be able to quickly deposit using PayPal again without connecting your account a second time.

Many online casinos only allow PayPal withdrawals if you’ve already deposited using the method. Keep this in mind when funding your account.

Online casino withdrawals with PayPal

Because PayPal withdrawals are typically allowed only following a PayPal deposit, this process is incredibly easy. Select withdraw, type in the amount you wish to cash out and choose “withdraw” (or similar).

PayPal online casino withdrawals usually process quickly. The online casino’s review period is the longest step, often taking up to 72 hours (depending on the site). After the casino has approved your withdrawal, it should hit your PayPal account within an hour or so.

PayPal safety and security

Generally speaking, online casinos operating in a legal market like Michigan only use trusted and secure payment methods. PayPal is no exception. The provider has been around for years as a trusted and secure method for sending and receiving payments.

PayPal has a dedicated security page where users can file complaints, report suspicious texts or emails, and flag unusual account activity.

PayPal online casino banking troubleshooting

Based on our expert experience and reports from numerous players, PayPal is one of the most successful payment methods at online casinos. Other payment options tend to be problem-prone or confusing to use. Credit cards, for example, are frequently declined at online gambling sites for fear of fraud. Such issues are rare at PayPal, though they can occur. In some cases, PayPal might not list the online casino as an approved merchant and decline a transaction. PayPal has no such issues.

Should you have any issues with a deposit or withdrawal, try contacting customer service at your chosen online PayPal casino in Michigan. If the issue seems to be on PayPal’s end, get in touch with PayPal’s customer service.
