As online payment methods and banking technology progress, bookmakers are starting to accept more methods for payment and withdrawals. One of these relatively new methods is Apple Pay and so in this article, we’ll be looking at which bookies accept Apple Pay and how you can use it to fund your betting accounts.
Let’s get straight to it and list the top bookmakers which accept Apple Pay. All of the bookmakers in the table below allow customers to make deposits into their betting accounts using Apple Pay.

Apple Pay is a payment method which can be used by registered users of Mac devices and those of iPhones, iPads or Apple Watches which have Touch ID. It allows you to make a contactless payment without the need to enter your details each time. So long as you have your card details stored in your Apple Wallet, payments can be made by simply using your fingerprint as verification. You can also store multiple cards in your Apple Wallet allowing you to quickly and easily choose which card you would like to pay with. The majority of major UK banks support Apple Pay and transactions are considered to be extremely safe and secure.
Apple Pay allows you to deposit into your betting account without needing to enter your card details on the bookmaker website. Instead, all you need to do is have your payment details registered on your Apple device. Some people prefer this as they consider it more secure.
Another reason to use Apple Pay is that it is more convenient. To make a deposit, all you need to do is enter the amount and place your finger on the fingerprint scanner on your Apple mobile device. This is quicker than having to enter details such as your CSV number and any other card details. The payment usually goes through quicker than when depositing with a card also.
Currently, no bookmaker allows you to withdraw your funds using Apple Pay. Therefore, to withdraw funds, you will have to register a valid card or bank account. However, due to the benefits of using Apple Pay over credit or debit cards, it is still a good option to have.
It is always best to check the deposit fees for any new payment method but at the time of writing this article, none of the bookmakers charge customers for using Apple Pay for deposits. There are also no charges from Apple to customers who make payments.
The steps for depositing using Apple Pay may vary slightly between bookmaker accounts but they are generally very simple.
In the example below, we have used Betfair.
Step 1: Log into your Betfair account and click on ‘Deposit’.
Step 2: Enter the deposit amount
Step 3: Click on the ‘Apple Pay’ logo
Step 4: Hold your finger on the scanner and your payment will be processed within 1-2 seconds
That’s all you need to do. As you can see, no card details need to be entered and the process is extremely quick and convenient.
