Making deposits with credit cards
Making a casino deposit using your credit card is as easy as when you make a payment at any other online shop. Here is a short and sweet guide on how to make a deposit with a credit card:
Once you have created an account at an online casino and you are logged in, you should find an option to make a deposit quite easily. This can usually be found under your account details, menu or at a separate cashier section.
When you have found the deposit site, just enter the amount you would wish to play with, then select credit card as the payment option. Note that sometimes you have to select which credit card company you are using from a drop box.
Enter the card number on the front of your credit card, your name as it is shown on the card, the date of expiry, and finally the security code or CVV on the back of the card. Then just verify your details and your deposit sum, and you are ready to play!
Remember to keep in mind the time when you have to pay back your credit card bill, if you want to avoid any extra fees.
Withdrawing with credit cards
Withdrawing money from your casino balance to your credit card is a fairly simple process. Here it is explained a few steps:
Go to your account’s banking options and make a withdrawal request to the casino. Select your credit card as the payment option to which you would like the money to be sent.
The casino will then process your withdrawal request within a few working days, and if needed, they will ask you for additional information. The reason they might do this is completely due to security reasons and to ensure that the money goes to you, not someone else.
If everything goes smoothly with your withdrawal request, you should be able to see the money the casino has sent within 1 to 3 working days.
Safety and security
As credit cards are so hugely popular, the major companies have gone to great lengths to ensure that they can offer the safest payment method available. When you enter your card details to a secure website (which you should be able to verify as secure sites have a lock symbol next to their URL addresses), the information gets encrypted and so the hackers can’t get their hands on it.
Some credit card providers also offer a two-factor authentication. This means that every time you are attempting to do a purchase online with your credit card, you have to verify it by entering a code sent to your mobile phone as a text message or as a notification on a mobile app. This way no one can try to make payments without you knowing about it.
The downside to credit cards is the fact that as physical cards they can be stolen or lost and then used by the thieves. Credit card companies offer a limited liability for any fraudulent activity, so you will not suffer any negative impact on purchases made with your card that you did not do. However, you should take very good care of your credit card and call the company immediately, if you believe it to be lost or stolen.
Mobile apps have also made paying with credit cards easy and even more secure, as the apps offer certain features such as fingerprint reading and FaceID. You can also make payments and keep in track with your finances with just a few taps of a finger.
Final Thoughts on Credit Card Casinos
Credit cards are an easy and secure option to go for if you intend to play at online casinos. They are widely accepted, so you will not have to get pick-and-choosy about the casino you want to play at. Credit cards offer you flexibility that other payment methods cannot do: you can deposit using credit and pay back later, so you will not have to wait an extra day until you get your pay check and have the money on your bank account to play.
