What exactly is WebMoney?
The company was created in Russia in 1998, following the country’s huge financial crisis at the time. Because of the crisis, Russians have been using US dollars more than rubles, and WebMoney allowed them to do so effortlessly. Since then, the firm has evolved into a general-purpose e-wallet that can be used to make secure online payments to merchants and services, including online casinos.
As of 2016, WebMoney had more than 30 million registered users, with over 10,000 new customers joining every day. More than 100,000 websites around the world accept WebMoney.
WebMoney is the preferred payment option for over two-thirds of Runet (Russian Internet) users, according to the e-Finance User Index. WebMoney has just received an FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) license, which is especially essential for casino players in the United Kingdom and the European Union.
This means they have unequivocal status as an electronic money issuer in the United Kingdom and the rest of the European Economic Area (similar to PayPal). This implies that if a casino takes WebMoney, anyone in Europe may sign up and make a deposit using WebMoney.
Using WebMoney at NZ online casinos
Unfortunately aren’t many online casinos in New Zealand that accept WebMoney payments right now, owing to the fact that WebMoney is mostly popular in Russia. However, due to the company’s recent global development, we may expect the list of supported NZ online casinos to increase.
