ApplePay will allow all iPhone, iPad and Mac uses to deposit at a casino using their Apple device. It works by using the card details stored in your wallet. Many casino sites are now accepting Apple Pay and below are those with Fluffy Favourites slots.
Apple Pay is a supremely convenient way to make deposits at your favourite mobile casino site. In fact, it’s so easy to use it’s difficult to remember how we ever did without it. And yet it was only introduced to the United Kingdom in 2015, so it has not been around for long…
Apple Pay Slot Sites – A Short History
By Apple standards, this new payment method took a long time to make it from the kernel of an idea to reality. Apple are renowned for being at the forefront of technology in what is an extraordinarily fast moving industry. Its latest innovative phones and gadgets are eagerly awaited by millions, if not billions of eager tech fans across the world. Many want to be the very first to get access to the latest smartphone upgrade or new model, with queues forming overnight when a new gadget is due for release.
These upgrades and re-designs usually appear on a regular basis, accompanied by a cacophony of fanfare. However, Apple Pay is a service rather than an actual gadget. Its launch depended on co-operation with big financial organisations and major banks – corporations and bureaucracies which are very conservative and traditional, not renowned for swift-footedness. Apple was not able to simply design a service, make a decision and go for it, like it normally would. This meant that Apple Pay took a lot of time to negotiate, organise and implement.
Secrecy was also a major consideration. The company needed to keep its ideas from the wider world. This was because Apple was a newcomer to financial services: if word got out too soon what the company was up to, banks and other financial organisations already in the industry could have got there first and beaten Apple’s proposed service to market. Yet keeping things quiet was not easy when complex negotiations with large outside organisations was required. The whole thing reads more like a spy thriller than the supposedly dull world of banking and high finance.
The original idea was probably first discussed at some point in the early 2010s. We can infer this because early in 2013 came the first indication that Apple was beginning to consult with some of the major financial organisations they would need on board in order to get their proposed service up and running. January 2013 saw Apple begin to start tentative exploratory talks with American Express, MasterCard and Visa.
At first glance, it would seem that there was little to be gained for massive financial organisations like Visa and MasterCard from allowing Apple a slice of their pie. In reality, these companies had already been planning an initiative to switch to mobile payments, thereby saving them billions in administration costs. Apple were therefore the perfect partners for this proposal.
But to get the proposed system off the ground, they really needed to get the agreement of all the major banks. So by the middle of the year, consultations began with more of the major banking groups. The international banking giant JP Morgan was tasked with co-ordinating the complex negotiations.
Yet the need for secrecy was so paramount that even the team responsible for implementing the plans did not have full details of who and what was involved. Few knew that Apple was involved, and even those that did know this did not realise that Apple was at the centre of the proposed service, and that it was to be branded ‘Apple Pay’.
Indeed, it was a surprise to even some of the people at the centre of the project when the new service was first announced to the world at one of Apple’s infamous launch events, when all of the world’s press and technology experts are presented with the company’s latest projects and models…
September 2014 saw the launch of Apple’s radical new mobile phone model, the iPhone 6. It was here that Apple CEO Tim Cook (regarded as Apple co-founder Steve Job’s right hand man) announced that the old style magnetic strip plastic card was dead. Apple Pay was to be the future.
Shortly after that, the new iOS 8.1 software upgrade enabled Apple Pay on all of the new iPhones. Further software was issued, enabling retailers, restaurants and other stores to upgrade their point of sale (POS) tills to accept the new payment system. The new service began to roll out across the globe, starting with the United States in early 2015. Apple Pay first reached the United Kingdom in July the same year.
And the rest, as they say, is history. Apple Pay is now a worldwide service. Only southern Asia, South America (apart from Brazil) and Africa are unable to use Apple Pay at the time of writing. The rest of the world, including the whole of Europe (with the exception of a few countries which were part of the former republic of Yugoslavia), North America, Australasia and Northern Asia (including China) are all compatible with the Apple Pay service.
Apple Pay Slot Sites – How Do They Work?
Apple Pay is an electronic payment system which can be used to make payments online and in stores. You can use any up to date Apple device, including iPhones, iPads and Apple watches to make Apple Pay transactions.
To set up Apple Pay on your iPhone, open up the Wallet app on your home screen. Tap on the ‘+’ symbol in the upper right hand corner and you will be directed to the Apple Pay screen. This gives details on privacy and how to get started. To add your credit or debit card details, just tap ‘Continue’. You can then add your details manually, or you can simply scan your card with your iPhone camera. Then enter your name and the CVV security number, which can be found on the reverse of your card.
Next, you must ‘Agree’ to the Terms and Conditions. You’re supposed to read them first, but I’ve yet to meet anybody who has. It’s not as if it’s a real choice is it? You will also need to allow your iPhone or device to access your location. This is so that the device (and Apple) can accurately track your purchases. You will then need to verify your card details and ‘tie’ these to your device. This is done when you receive a text containing a unique verification code. Your card is then verified. You can also call your bank for approval if you prefer. Your card should now appear in your Wallet app and be ready for use.
You can now use your iPhone to pay at any casino sites that accepts Apple Pay. When choosing a deposit method simply click on ‘Apple Pay’ the Apple logo is also shown. once you do this you confirm the amount you wish to deposit and then confirm the payment. Depending on your device this is done with a finger print or face recognition software. It works exactly the same way as if you were paying for you’re shopping at the local store.[/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
