The very fact that credit cards are a staple in day to day living, has meant they have become much more secure and safe to use. Moreover, they are reliable, and the quickest and easiest way to move money around from one bank account to another.
Credit cards are used for just about every purchase, online and offline. But with online casinos gaining in popularity due to their convenience, and the fact they are easy to use. Players are using their credit cards to deposit funds into their online casino accounts.
The most popular types of credit cards are MasterCard and Visa, and both are internationally recognised and accepted. Therefore, there should be no problem with them being accepted by online casinos. However, online casinos are also accepting American Express and Amex credit cards.
Many online casinos have allowed the player to register up to three cards. The one positive about using credit cards is, any money which is added or taken from your bank account will can be monitored through statements.
Before depositing money into your online casino using your credit card, make sure you haven’t exceeded your spending limit. Once you have checked everything is in order with your card, all you need to do is get your card registered with the online casino. After all the details have been provided, you will be able to deposit money into your account. If your transaction was successful then you are ready to play, but if it wasn’t you will be able to try another card or an alternative payment method.
Players who are registering credit cards with online casinos should know that they are protected under Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act. This means if they spend anywhere between £100 and £30,000, and the online casino went bankrupt, they will be able to get their funds back. Just as long as the amount does not exceed the credit limit specified.
