Credit Cards

Credit cards are the way to go these days. Not only they can be used for shopping online, but they are also the most popular and fastest way to deposit money at online casinos that allow this money transfer. These cards have been around since 1950s and their use has recently expanded to the online casino industry. Using your credit card like Visa, Visa Gold or Master Card for example, is the easiest and most simple way to deposit and/or withdraw funds to and from your online casino account. Depending on the casino itself, the money transfer made via credit card is swift, safe and instant.

How Credit Cards Work

To make a deposit at an online casino via your credit card and play your favorite casino game, first and foremost, you have to register as a real player at an online casino and open an account. Afterwards, go the casino’s cashier and choose this deposit method. Enter your name and surname, address and country, the card number and the CVV/CVV2 3-digit number on the back of your card. Then type in the amount you want to deposit. These transactions are often processed instantly and the deposited money should immediately appear into your online casino account. Use this money to place wagers and play your favorite casino games.

Is it Safe to Use My Credit Card

Most online casino players are afraid to use their credit cards for depositing and withdrawing to and from casinos because they have to enter personal information and card details that, if not protected, may get into the wrong hands and they may become victims of identity theft. Therefore, protect yourself by signing up with a reputable and licensed online casino that uses the latest SLL encryption. The Secure Sockets Layer encryption protects the sensitive data provided by the online casino players. Those casinos that are SSL-protected display a closed-lock icon on the status bar.

Another thing you should know is that SSL-protected online casino begins with “https” rather than “http”. It is also recommended that you read the privacy policy of a particular casino to make sure the casino you have chosen is a safe place to bet.

Credit Cards and Withdrawing

Not only you can use your credit card to deposit money into your casino account, but you can also use it to withdraw your winnings. To make a withdrawal, go to the cashier and type in the required information as well as the amount you want to withdraw. This money transfer should be processed immediately or within 2 days and you should be able to cash out your winnings within 5 to 7 business days.
