Bet365 has suspended Skrill from being used to process transactions on the betting site. Why Bet365 stopped Skrill deposits and withdrawals is unclear, with the site offering little-to-no information regarding the reasoning behind the decision.
However, despite radio silence from Bet365, it’s widely accepted that users were abusing bonuses through using this e-wallet and that played a major role in the firm blocking Skrill.
Additionally, Bet365 disabled the use of Skrill 1-Tap.
Moreover, Bet365 has also blocked payments from Neteller. Like Skrill, Neteller operates as an e-wallet that seeks to distribute funds to and from customers’ accounts across the globe.
Upon attempting to deposit at Bet365 with Skrill and Neteller, users are greeted with this message, “Skrill [and Neteller] is currently unavailable. Please use an alternative payment method.”
Will Skrill Return to Bet365?
The support team at Bet365 made it clear that there is no specific timeframe in which users can expect to make payments at Bet365 with Skrill. The same applies to the relationship between Bet365 and Neteller.
But, with Skrill and Neteller still advertised as payment methods at Bet365 in the banking section of the site, there is every chance the team behind the scenes will re-enable both e-wallets again.
For the time being, Bet365 does not want its customers utilizing particular virtual wallets to deposit and withdraw funds.

Bet365 and Skrill – When to Expect a Comeback
With no definitive timeline on when Bet365 and Skrill or Neteller will return, the future of both payment methods at the betting site continues to be a mystery. In all likelihood, neither will return until Bet365 figures out how to prevent customers from taking repeatedly taking advantage of bonuses while using Skrill and Neteller.
The ban on Skrill and Neteller doesn’t apply within each country that Bet365 operates. Some regions continue to have access to both methods of e-transfer.
