MasterCard: money for games quickly and easily
MasterCard Worldwide is an international payment system that unites more than 22,000 banks and financial institutions. It provides services in more than 210 different countries. The head office of MasterCard is located in New York, USA. Initially, the company was called Master Charge: Interbank Card and was created to compete with VISA, which at that time was called Bank of America and was only gaining popularity.
Starting from 1966 (the year of its foundation) the MasterCard company grew every decade. Today, its services are used by a huge number of people around the world, paying for purchases on Internet, shops, as well as making deposits in online casinos, poker rooms, bookmakers, etc.
In Austria and Germany, MasterCard cards have become a replacement for the Eurocheque payment system. However, they are served in different ways. For example, in Austria MasterCard is the most often operating format of virtual cards, and in Germany they are issued with the logos of German Electronic Cash / Girocard. Such cards can be used as ordinary MasterCard cards or Girocard ones, however they are not suitable for payment by phone or via Internet banking, so they may not be suitable for use in online casinos.
How to fund your account with the online MasterCard system
As we noted earlier, almost every online casino allows users to make a deposit through MasterCard. Of course, there are operators who do not accept payments in this way, but there are very few of them.
Firstly, you need to replenish the account of the card itself. You can do this at the branch of the bank that serves your card, via QIWI terminals, as well as using such payment systems as Skrill, Neteller and others (provided that your card is linked to the account in these payment systems). If there is money on your card, then you can proceed to deposit in an online casino.
A replenishment of a casino account via MasterCard is quick and convenient for the user. To make a deposit, enter cash register of your casino and select MasterCard bank cards in refill methods. Then specify a 16-digit card number and name indicated on its front side. Next, specify the validity period of the card and a 3-digit security code (CVV), which is on reverse side.
After completing this procedure, indicate an amount of replenishment and make a payment. The amount deposited on the account will be instantly available for using in real money games. Fee charged for the MasterCard payment depends on the casino and other circumstances and can range from 0% to 3%, but in a vast majority of cases it is paid by operator himself.
However, in case of using bank cards there is one nuance: before making a deposit or after it, you may be asked to prove an affiliation of the card to you. For this, you will need to send scans of cards, passports and other documents to the casino support service (if necessary, on request in the support service).
