We decided to make an article about bookies which accept payments in Romanian Lei, including the deposit and withdrawal options that they offer.
Romanians are very excited about gambling and other free time activities which can be seen from their history. The most popular betting sport to bet on in Romania is football, especially when it comes to online gambling. You can find all the information you need regarding sports betting sites which accept the Romanian Leu as a currency, and of course, if you have to pay gambling tax on your winnings. Last but not least, we will take a look at the different deposit and withdrawal methods which you can use for this currency.

The currency isn’t very popular, so it’s not a surprise that not many gambling websites will have it. In fact, there are only two bookies which will allow you to pay with this currency, and they are BetVictor and Bet365. You can find why we rate them so highly in our bookmaker reviews section, but here is a preview of the deposit options that they offer to punters who are using RON.
- Bet365 – Undoubtedly the best website for Romanian gamblers, mainly because of the wide variety of deposit options that they have. If you want to make a deposit using Romanian Leu, you can choose from: Neteller, Entropay, Skrill, Click2Pay, PaySafeCard, fast bank transfer, wire transfer, and debit cards. All of the above-mentioned methods are eligible for making withdrawals, with the exception of PaySafeCard. Romanians have a huge abundance of choices when it comes to picking a payment method at bet365.
- BetVictor – The other website which accepts Romanian Lei, but lacks the diversity of deposit options that bet365 offers. Unfortunately, there are only two choices for depositing money, and they are PaySafeCard and Webmoney, with the latter being eligible for withdrawals. This limits Romanian gamblers who want to use their own currency, that’s why we highly recommend choosing bet365.
Gambling Tax in Romania
Romania is one of the countries where the government doesn’t interfere with gambling and it isn’t mentioned in the laws at all. You don’t have to pay tax on the money you win from gambling and are free to do whatever you want with them, be it either making a withdrawal or using them to bet on another market at the website.
What payment methods should people who want to deposit in Romanian Lei use?
We recommend that you use bet365 and not BetVictor because of the huge difference in payment methods available.
If you decide to follow our advice, the best choice for making deposits would be the good old debit card. You don’t have to hide your winnings from the government because gambling is legal and there is no tax which you have to pay, so it doesn’t make sense to use an e-wallet and pay transaction fees. Plus, the transaction speed is much faster when you use a debit card.
