Skrill in Gambling Industry
Skrill is an e-wallet that acts as an intermediary between user’s personal bank accounts and online gambling sites. Almost all gambling industry (Almost all sportsbook, Casinos, Poker Sites, even Forex) are using Skrill - Moneybookers.  The majority of Skrill users do not use their account for gambling – so banks are used to seeing Skrill on bank account transaction ledgers and thinking nothing of it. Doing all of your money management with this service can be quite useful cause you can keep it separated from your bank account and keep good tabs on your sports betting investments without having them impact your personal accounts as directly.

Note: Moneybookers has never supported or accepted US players for deposits and pay outs to and from gaming operators. In the US, customers can register, but only use it for E-Commerce or p2p-transactions, NOT GAMBLING. Transactions to and from gambling companies are not accepted.
