Every gambler expects to win after placing bets at a casino. However, the reality dawns on you the moment you are declared the winner. Apart from the adrenaline rush that you get, you need also to think quickly about how you will manage your winning. Your starting point should be to know what happens after you win. Understand the procedures and protocols to follow to claim your money.
Withdrawing/managing your winnings from an online casino
The process of managing your winnings from an internet casino is different from a land-based casino. Depending on your payment method, you can withdraw your money instantly or go through a slower process. Log in to your casino account and click on the cashier’s button.
Several withdrawal methods will be displayed for you to choose one. Fill in your financial data and take note of the minimum and maximum withdrawal limits. The most popular methods are credit/debit cards, Neteller, Skrill, and wire transfers.
Withdrawing/managing your winnings from a land-based casino
Winners at a land-based casino are often caught by surprise. Winning a jackpot can offer you a chance to live a luxurious life on a budget and achieve many other things. The casino staff will not instantly offer you a bucket full of dollars, but there is a procedure to follow. The staff will congratulate you and then welcome you to fill out the paperwork. The taxman will expect his share from the winning, and you will get the net after transfer deductions.
What options do you have in a land-based casino?
Depending on the strategy you want to use for managing your personal finances, the casino will give you several options. You may decide to carry your winning in a basket full of cash which is riskier for you. Another option is to ask the casino to pay you in the form of casino chips which you can claim at the cashier’s counter at your convenience.
The casino will also agree to write a check if you make a request. You must give them enough time to process the check and wait for it at your letterbox or pick it up from the casino. You still have an option of requesting a bank transfer which also takes some time.
Do you have to withdraw all the money at once?
You don’t have to withdraw all your money at once. Depending on how much it is, you may request the casino to pay you a small portion first. After you decide what to do with the rest of the money, you may ask them to pay little by little over several years. This kind of arrangement is called an annuity payment. You can make it your investment to sustain for several years.
