So it comes as no surprise almost all poker and sports betting sites list it as a payment option.

In addition to the already excellent service that Skrill is providing, our members get access to the Knect loyalty rewards scheme.

Furthermore, you can also use it to pay in both, online and offline stores all across the globe.

Your Skrill Mastercard balance will always be equal to your Skrill eWallet account balance, therefore you can only spend as many funds as you have available in your Skrill account.
