Launched in 2005, Moneta.ru quickly became one of the most rapidly growing, as well as the most popular online payment methods in Russia. It is established in thousands of online cashiers and supports payments for online gambling, mobile services, online shopping, utility bills, and more.
The official website of the company claims that the service supports all types of clients, regardless of the location. To be fair, the sign-up process for Moneta’s e-wallet does not require any ID scans, just basic contacts. Plus, the e-wallet’s accounts can be set in RUB, EUR, and USD.
On the other hand, the interface of the system may be somewhat challenging for those who don’t speak Russian. There is a translation to English, but it seems like it is partial.
So, how exactly would you use Moneta.ru with an online casino?
Before registering at the gambling venue, you will need to register an e-wallet with Moneta. For these purposes, submit your name, phone, and e-mail. Verify the account and receive a 5-digit payment password.
The next step would be to top the account in the e-wallet. You can do so by using cards, other e-wallets, or bank transfer. Be aware of the fees:
- Visa and MasterCard will charge with 1.9% on top.
- Qiwi and YandexMoney, two other popular e-wallets in Russia, charge 2% and 4.5%, respectively, per transaction.
- Bank transfer has a fee of 1%.
Once you have cash in your e-wallet, select an online operator that is friendly to this payment method. Register a casino account and head to the Deposits. Select Moneta.ru and send funds, which will be added instantly. Casinos usually don’t charge any deposit fees.
Another great thing about Moneta.ru is that it actually qualified for cashouts. The only other important part of the equation is that the selected casino supports withdrawals to Moneta.ru. Fees will depend on the policies of gambling brands that you chose.
From the e-wallet, withdraw to cards Visa or MasterCard, and a fee of 2% will apply. Cashouts will take up to three days to complete. You will need to claim at least 2 USD or the equivalent in RUB. Per bank transfer cashouts, the fee is 2%, and the minimum amount is 20 USD or the equivalent in RUB. Expect the withdrawal to take between 1 to 5 workdays. You can also choose to send funds to other e-wallets, such as Qiwi or YandexMoney, and they will be transferred within a minute. However, such withdrawals do not make much sense and you will lose between 2% to 4.5% per transaction and will still need to figure out how to receive wins from these two wallets.
