Google Pay online casinos

Google Pay currently does not support online casino payments, and whether it will in the future is up in the air.

Google Pay has stormed across the globe, with the easy tap system, quicker online payments and the ability to securely store your banking information on your mobile phone for use in apps and online proving to be a hit in many countries, including Australia, United Kingdom and the USA.

It just seems a matter of time until the global giant delves into online gambling payment processing in regulated markets.

However, as of February 2019 there are no online casinos accepting this as a payment method.

What is Google Pay

Google Pay simplifies online payments, much like Paypal, although it has its differences. Basically you store your bank account details or cards in the Google Pay app which then allows you to pay on sites, in apps and in brick-and-mortar shops which support it.

The benefits of using this web wallet-style payment system include the ability to send money, store tickets digitally or even store all your rewards cards in the app, so you never forget to bring the store loyalty card again.

Google’s current policy on gambling

Word for word the only mention Google makes of gambling in its Google Pay policy is in the Unacceptable Product Categories section:

Gaming/Gambling

Examples: Lottery tickets, sports bets, memberships / enrollment in online gambling sites, and related content. Promotion of offline brick and mortar casinos is allowed.”

How to deposit at online casinos with Google Pay

While it is not possible to deposit with Google Pay at online casinos in 2019, we think it is just a matter of time until it is available at leading gambling sites. This section will hypothetically run you through how a Google Pay casino deposit would work:

How to use Google Pay: Google Pay is available at physical stories and select online vendors and lets you pay using nothing but your mobile phone and a linked payment method.

Setting up the linked payment method is very easy in Google Pay, just download the app and follow the prompts. Some of the popular payment methods to link include Paypal, Neteller and various credit and debit cards.

When paying in-store you must have the Google Pay app installed and have a phone with an NFC chip, so you can tap and pay, just like many cards are used in 2019. Basically your phone is replacing your card.

When paying online when you reach the checkout you will see the option to “Pay with Google” which will prompt you to login and pay with your Google Pay service.

Theoretically when gambling online with Google Pay you would visit a casino that accepts this deposit method and sign up.

You would then visit the cashier or banking section and select Google Pay as your deposit method. You can then login via a QR Code on your mobile or using your account details. Enter in an amount to deposit and finalise the Google Pay payment.
