Skrill and Neteller stop gambling payments in Norway

15 Dec 2020

norway-flagSkrill and Neteller have informed sportsbooks that they will not be processing online gambling payments in Norway anymore. Both e-wallets will stop accepting deposits from and to gambling accounts in the country. The change was officially announced on December 8, 2020.

Players residing in Norway have been using those two e-wallets for safe and secure payments at online casinos and sports betting sites for many years. Thus, they need to find an alternative so as to continue gambling.

Norwegian e-wallet account holders will still be able to carry out personal money transfers; as well as non-gambling transactions and ATM withdrawals. The deadline for payouts from gambling operators is December 21. After this date, no bettor in Norway will be able to cash out his funds to his e-wallet account.

EcoPayz (along with Paysafecard and Boku) is at the moment the only viable alternative for Norwegian gamblers. Those payment solutions are still accepted at online casinos and sports betting sites in Norway.
