While there aren’t a lot of minimum deposit casinos that support PayPal in Ireland, we have listed those that we have come across and played at in the table below. You can use this table to compare their basics and then read our full reviews in order to fully understand the score we have given each casino.

The smallest amount you can deposit with PayPal at low minimum deposit casinos is €1. Your options are limited though as our research tells us that only a handful of online casinos actually support such small deposits. Not only that, but our experience also tells us that PayPal is a rare payment method to find. Thus, online casinos that support both PayPal and a minimum deposit of €1 are extremely rare.
In the online gambling industry, the standard minimum withdrawal limit is €10. With the low minimum deposit casinos that we have reviewed, this also holds true for PayPal. We have never come across a PayPal casino with a lower withdrawal limit than this.
No. Deposit fees in general are rare to come by at online casinos with a low minimum deposit and when it comes to PayPal, we have never witnessed any. There may, of course, be some low minimum deposit casinos that do charge fees. However, it’s safe to say that it’s nothing you would normally find.
You must be aware though that if your PayPal account and your online casino account don’t have matching currencies, a currency exchange fee would indeed be charged by PayPal.
Like any e-Wallet, a major strength of PayPal is the ability to have casino withdrawals received much faster than with debit cards. There is no transaction time with the method, which means that money is instantly received as soon as it has been sent from a low minimum deposit casino.
Another pro is that PayPal is commonly supported in online stores such as Amazon, which isn’t the case with other e-Wallets. A Mastercard can also be ordered which can be used to withdraw your PayPal balance in an ATM or use the card to make various purchases. This is a feature similar to that of Skrill, Neteller and Payz, but with some differences.
Withdrawing in an ATM with PayPal costs €2.50 per withdrawal, whereas the other mentioned e-Wallets charge a percentage of around 2%. The PayPal Mastercard is not directly linked to the e-Wallet either like it is with Skrill, Neteller and Payz, but uses a separate account. Thus, you need to fund this account with money in order to use the card. This can be done in several convenient ways, including using your PayPal’s e-Wallet balance.
While the rare support of PayPal at casino sites with a low minimum deposit is a big downside, strong consumer protection is yet another highlight. Should you, for some reason not receive goods you have purchased with PayPal, it is easy to make a claim and get your money back. You must never mention gambling though as PayPal has a strict policy against it and will close your account if they find out it is used for this.
