What is the cash at cage method?

The cash at cage payment option allows you to deposit money into your online casino account in person at a casino in New Jersey. They are usually multiple locations where you can do cash at cage deposits or withdrawals depending on what online casino you are playing with.

Making a deposit using the cash at cage method

With the cash at cage method, both depositing funds and withdrawing your earnings is a pretty simple, straightforward process. For depositing funds into your account using the cash at cage method, do the following:
First, go into the main cage at a physical location in New Jersey.
You need to make sure that you are going to a casino that works with the online casino that you are playing at. Make sure to go to the online casino you are playing at and check what locations you can visit.
Next, ask to deposit money into your online casino account.
You need to have a government-issued photo ID and your account name that you use at the online casino to be able to deposit funds. You can only use cash for cash at cage deposits, but some cage cashiers can help you with check cashing and credit card advances if you need help.
After making a deposit, the cashier will deposit money into your online account.
Once the transaction has been successful, you’ll get an email notification saying that the deposit has been made into your account and you’ll have all the important transaction details in the email. Once the transaction is completed, you’ll be able to use the funds in your account in the online casino. With the cash at cage method, there may be a minimum deposit requirement. Make sure to check online before you go so you make sure you bring enough. However, minimum deposits can be quite low with some casinos having a requirement of just $10. Also, if you have a marker out at the casino where you’re attempting the cash at cage deposit, you might not be able to complete the transaction.

Making a withdrawal using the cash at cage method

Besides making deposits at the cage, you can also withdraw your online winnings at the cage. In order to make a withdrawal using the cash at cage method you need to do the following: 

First, make a withdrawal request with your online account.

You need to login to the account that you want to withdraw from and make a request stating that you want to pick up your money at the cage.

Next, you’ll get sent an email.

This is a confirmation email stating that you have made a request to withdraw your winnings at the cage. This is a security measure to let you know a request has been made. Make sure to read the email to see if there are any special instructions.

Then, go to the casino in New Jersey to withdraw your funds.

You will need to bring a government issued photo id and the username that you use at the online casino. Make sure that the email doesn’t require you to bring anything else with you. It should be noted that when you make your initial withdrawal request, there is usually a window of time in which you must make your withdrawal. For example, you might have to pick up your funds within 15 days of making the request. If you don’t pick up your funds in the allotted time, the funds will return to your online account. Also, while there is usually a minimum deposit requirement using the cash at cage method, there is usually no minimum withdrawal requirement.

Advantages of the cash at cage payment method

When playing at an online casino there are usually many different payment methods. But why should you use the cash at cage method for making deposits and withdrawals? Here are some advantages of using the cash at cage method for deposits and withdrawals.

You won’t have to deal with online payment processors.

If you’re playing at an online casino, chances are you are at least familiar with technology. But if using online payment processors is too troublesome for you, you can use the cash at age method.

The cash at cage method is the fastest method to get your funds.

Withdrawing funds by check can take five to seven business days and the check can only be sent to the address on your online account. Prepaid cards can take 24 to 36 hours for your withdrawal to go through. PayPal can take 24 to 48 hours to complete. Withdrawing funds using the cash at cage method is instant. Here’s a quick table showing the timeframes and different withdrawal methods.  
Withdrawal Method Time frame
Check 5 – 7 Business Days
Bank Transfer 3 – 5 Business Days
PayPal 3-4 Business Days
Cash at Cage Instant or up to 24 Hours
  Also, as long as a casino is open, you should be able to make deposits or withdrawals using the cash at cage method. If you have your money sent to your bank account, you won’t be able to go in and withdraw your money if the bank is closed. Casinos in New Jersey are open 24/7, so you won’t have to worry about not having access to your money with the cash at cage method.

There’s one less service provider you have to go through.

For example, if you get your payments through PayPal or online banking, you have to worry about going to their websites. PayPal has been known to lock people out of their accounts or put holds on funds. Also, if you have your funds deposited into a PayPal account or online banking account, you run the risk of someone hacking into your account and withdrawing those funds. With the cash at cage method, you don’t have to worry about any of these issues.

You don’t have to worry about your card getting declined.

I know if I try to make a large transaction with one of my bank or credit cards, sometimes the transaction will get denied. This means I’ll have to spend a few hours on my bank’s customer service hotline going around trying to figure out why my card was denied and getting customer service to take the hold off my card. Instead of wasting all this time trying to get a hold taken off your card, you could just use the cash at cage method for deposits and skip all this nonsense. 

You’ll have a chance to play at casinos in person

If you are in New Jersey and using the cash at cage method, you will have a chance to stretch your legs and see the casinos in person. Since you’re already there picking up or depositing funds, why not play a hand or two of blackjack in person?

Disadvantages of the cash at cage method

You have to physically be at the location to make a deposit or withdrawal using the cash cage method.

This means that if you’re not in New Jersey, you’re going to have to travel there just to collect your winnings. Obviously, if you’re not in New Jersey, then online withdrawal and deposit methods are much more convenient than the cash at cage method.

You may have large sums of cash on you.

You’ll have to carry cash with you until you make a deposit if you’re using the cash at cage method. The same is true if you are using the cash at cage method to withdraw your funds. You may not be comfortable carrying around all that cash (especially if you’ve won a lot). If this is true for you, then the cash at cage method may not be the best option.
