Comparasino speaks to Mark Sperring, Head of Sales at MuchBetter, to learn more about how it is revolutionising online casino deposits and payouts

Payments are super important to the overall experience you receive at an online casino. Every payment method has its pros and cons, and some are far more restrictive than others – you might not be able to claim certain promotions or play at small deposit casinos, for example.

MuchBetter is a digital wallet that has been designed specifically for online casino players and to overcome the pain points experienced with other payment methods, especially slow payouts. This has seen a surge in MuchBetter casinos landing in the UK.

Its rise in popularity has been meteoric, with MuchBetter now available at a growing number of online casinos in the UK. But this is a challenging space where it must compete with the likes of PayPal, Skrill, Neteller and even Apple Pay and Google Pay.

So how is it going about doing this?

“It comes down to two elements,” says MuchBetter Head of Sales, Mark Sperring. “The first is simplicity and convenience. We want to give our customers the option to have a wallet that meets their needs. The second is safety and security. This includes offering unique device authentication and fraud and theft prevention.

“We are available across many major online casino brands, and we have many localised payment options globally which offer players the ability to fund their MuchBetter wallet easily. Everything in your wallet can be managed from your mobile device. We really do believe in giving our customers a rewarding payment experience.”

Fast withdrawal casinos are in high demand, but many players still don’t realise that it is often the payment method they use to withdraw that ultimately determines the speed at which they receive their winnings.

MuchBetter is one of the few payment options that can facilitate instant withdrawals from your online casino wagering wallet. Sperring explains how.

“Withdrawals can be easily initiated from the casino cashier by simply entering your MuchBetter phone number, and you can instantly approve the incoming funds in your MuchBetter Wallet app. You then have the option to choose from various methods to send, spend or withdraw your funds from the wallet.”

For most players, second to the speed of the transaction is the security of the transaction and this is an area where MuchBetter excels.

As well as various in-house controls deployed to put a ring of steel around your funds, you can manage everything from your smartphone via the MuchBetter Wallet app. This includes device pairing with Touch-ID for added peace of mind.

One of the major upsides to using MuchBetter for your online casino play is the generous rewards scheme it operates. This sees you earn MB Coins every time you top-up your wallet – coins can then be converted into cash. The more MB Coins you have, the more cash you can unlock.

“We’re excited about this one,” says Sperring. “Our newly launched loyalty scheme rewards our customers when they top up their wallets. You can earn 1 MB Coin for every £10 top-up, and you can convert your MB Coins to cash when you reach at least 100 MB Coins.

“There is also a multiplier wheel during promotions to unlock the chance to multiply the number of coins you earn for a limited time.”

Another benefit to using MuchBetter is the ease at which you can spend your casino winnings.

You can use the cash in your MuchBetter wallet – both from your casino winnings and from MB Coins – to make payments at online shops and retail outlets across the UK. You can even order a MuchBetter pre-paid card or a contactless payment device from the app.

You can also send money to friends and family or withdraw it from your MuchBetter wallet to your bank account, all within a few taps of your mobile screen.

Sperring says this speed, security and convenience are ultimately what make digital wallets and MuchBetter so popular with online casino players in the UK.

“We are seeing more consumers embracing smartphones for everyday use as we now live in a world that moves faster and more efficiently than ever before. 

“Digital wallets offer the ability to manage payments easily and will play a part in the future. Our MuchBetter wallet compliments this and we will also continue to develop our product to meet the needs of our customers with reliable solutions in every e-commerce market, not just online casino.”

This will undoubtedly see more online casinos in the UK add MuchBetter to their cashiers. But according to Sperring, MuchBetter is not resting on its laurels.

“We’re constantly watching the marketplace and are committed to developing more innovative payment solutions, so watch this space!”

An important word on responsible gambling

Online casino is fun and enjoyed by millions of people across the UK. But it’s important that it does stay fun and that you remain in control of your play. Because we only partner with UK-licenced online casinos, each of the brands listed on Comparasino offers the tools you need to do this.

 

But some of these tools might be unfamiliar and it can also be tough to determine if you, or a family member or friend, could potentially have a gambling problem. That’s why we’ve created a Safe Gaming Hub where you can find information about all the responsible gambling tools offered at online casinos, how they work and which ones might be best for you.

 

It also contains insights into some of the early signs of problem play to be aware of in yourself and others as well as direct access to charities and organisations that support those with problem gambling habits.
