Fastest Casino Payouts In North Carolina

How fast an online casino pays out your winnings is critical to choosing which casino to play. Online casinos fall into three categories—instant withdrawal casinos (payment within 24 hours), fast payout online casinos (payment within a few days), and all the others.

Instant and fast payouts give you quick access to your money and peace of mind. Therefore, online casino withdrawal times are important when choosing where to play online.

North Carolina online sweepstakes casinos

Currently, real-money online casinos in North Carolina are illegal. However, various sweepstakes or social casinos are legal to play in North Carolina. While these casinos don’t use real money, you can redeem winnings for cash prizes.

When the North Carolina legislature legalizes real-money online casino gaming, you can expect the big names in online gaming to come to the Tar Heel state, such as:

The fastest-paying casinos

How to withdraw from online casinos

Most online casinos have several secure payout methods. Regardless of your method, the steps to withdraw are generally the same.

  1. Go to the cashier page and click ‘Withdraw.’
  2. Choose the payment method from those available. Some withdrawal methods require that you deposit using the same method.
  3. Enter the amount you want to withdraw and click ‘Confirm Payment.’
  4. Depending on the payment method you choose and the casino you use, the withdrawal request is automatically released, and the funds are available immediately, or the casino will need to approve the request manually. A manual request can take up to 24 hours.

Ensure the funds arrive within the specified time, which may be several business days. If the funds do not arrive on time, contact the customer service team for an update.

If you want the funds quickly, the fastest withdrawal methods are typically a Play+ card, PayPal, Venmo, or Visa Direct. Usually, you can use these withdrawal methods only if you made your deposit using the same method.

The requirement that the deposit and withdrawal methods be the same may seem arbitrary and inconvenient, but it is an anti-money laundering regulation.

What to consider when choosing a casino

Instant withdrawals

To get the fastest payouts possible, make sure the online casino offers instant withdrawals and that you have access to those methods. Many casinos offer immediate payouts using their Pay+ card, which you must apply for and receive before you make your deposit.

Check the casino processing time. While you may have access to your cash immediately from a casino Pay+ card, PayPal, or other method, the time it takes the casino to process the withdrawal and apply it to your chosen withdrawal method can range from minutes to days.

Casino fees

A legal online casino rarely charges a withdrawal fee. If an online casino you are considering charges a withdrawal fee, it may not be legal. If it is not a legal casino, do not play on it.

You can expect a fee if you are using a wire transfer to your bank. But this is a fee from the bank, not the casino.


All online casino withdrawals require that you are verified. Verification ensures your money goes to you. Some casinos verify you automatically using the information provided when signing up. Other casinos require supporting documents.

If supporting documents are needed, those documents will include a government-issued photo ID such as a driver’s license, government ID, or passport. You can scan the required documents to send to the casino.
