Sofort is a widely available bank transfer payment method, accessible today in 12 of the major European countries, putting it in reach of most the residents of Europe. It allows paying merchants online directly from your banking account, thus avoiding any need for separate account management and funding. Very simple in its mechanism, it enjoys a high popularity both among sellers and buyers.
Actually, you do not need an account at Sofort because there is none: to deposit at Sofort casinos, you will use your own account at any of the participating banks. These are regular banks but also online banks. In order to help you understand how this online payment system works, Sofort has prepared a complete demo which is available to all at their website (see link at the bottom of this page): choose your country and then scroll down the resulting page until you find the video, generally presented in local language. You will see that once you have selected the goods at an online shop or the cashier section in a Sofort casino, you will select the Sofort payment option and confirm the amount of your purchase or deposit; you will be redirected to your regular home banking screen which will be the only one to receive your personal data, making Sofort by these means a fast and secure method to pay online, with no need for any card, registration or additional account. The merchant (or the PlayMillion cashier) will immediately receive the confirmation of your deposit and deliver the goods (or credit your gaming account).
Sofort is verified to be safe by Trusteer’s online banking security solution Trusteer Rapport and by TÜV Saarland (as Approved Payment System and Approved Data Protection). It performs more than 2 million financial transactions per month with more than 30,000 merchants online. Its operations are also certified ISO 27001.
Sofort also allows a refund process if you return the purchased goods, but unfortunately this cannot be applied to withdrawals of casino winnings.
