When it comes to online casinos, Google Pay can be used for deposits but not for withdrawals. Still, it has become quite popular since it allows a gambler to make a casino deposit using their selected transaction method (e.g. credit or debit card) without disclosing sensitive card information to the recipient. Google Pay acts as an intermediary, and sensitive information is shared with Google Pay instead of being sent to the merchant.

Do I need a mobile device to use Google Pay?

No, Google Pay works with desktop computers too. You can use a stationary computer, a laptop, a smartphone or a tablet.

Do I need an Android mobile device to use Google Pay?
