To determine which method will work best for you, it is best that you consider all potential options and select the method that will work best for your particular situation. Below is the best real money poker sites for Scottish players and an overview of Scottish deposit options at online poker rooms in Scotland.

Scotland Poker Deposit Options

UseMyBank is a popular service used by Scottish online poker players to fund their real money accounts directly from their personal bank accounts. The UseMyBank service is only accepted at a handful of Scottish banks. So be sure to check with your personal financial institution to determine whether or not it will be possible to make a direct funds transfer to your online real money poker account. Most sites charge no transaction fees for deposits via UseMyBank. However, processing times can sometimes delay payments for up to 3 business days while the funds clear your bank.

If UseMyBank is not offered through your current financial institution, than you can still take advantage of other online third-party payment processing systems offered in Scotland. Neteller is one of the world's most popularly used online payment processing services. By using a service such as Neteller, you will be able to link your personal bank account or credit card to your online poker account and make funds transfers instantly and securely. The best part is that you will never have to provide your personal bank account information or credit card number to the online poker website. This creates an additional safety net in protecting yourself from fraudulent charges and identity theft.

Scotland Poker Sites

Most Scotland online poker sites, located within the jurisdiction of Scotland, will accept real money deposits directly from you Visa or MasterCard credit card. While this deposit method is easy and incredibly fast, it may be more costly than it appears. Many banks and credit card issuers will treat a deposit to an online gambling site as a cash advance. What this means is that you will face large fees for completing the transaction. Furthermore, the interest rates on cash advances tend to be significantly higher than those for standard purchases. Often times it makes it too costly to fund your online poker account directly from a credit card.

Most international online poker sites, such as AbslutePoker and PokerRoom, currently accept registration from players in Scotland. Some of these foreign online poker providers will have a limited amount of options for Scottish poker players depositing real money into their accounts. However, almost all international online poker providers currently accept deposits via both Neteller and Visa or MasterCard credit cards.
