Mastercard company began its activities in 1966 and today it operates in more than 200 countries around the world. You can read about how to apply for this plastic card on the company’s website or ask at any of the banks. Let’s note only the basic types of Mastercard.
A credit card is different in that the money lying on it belongs to the bank, and the cardholder as if takes them to use and must return. It is important to note that almost all Mastercard credit cards have an automatic credit limit reset feature. This means that the card user does not have to wait for the day the debt is written off, just pay the minimum amount that is prescribed in the contract and you can continue to use the card.
Debit cards have a fundamental difference from credit cards: the money lying on the account belongs to the client and he may dispose of it at his discretion.
The third option is called prepaid cards which are cards with a certain amount. After the money runs out, you can buy a new card.
Mastercard cards can be used in a variety of places, such as stores, hotels, restaurants, on the Internet and, of course, in online casinos.
But with the withdrawal of money from the casino the situation is more complicated.
In order to make a deposit to an online casino with Mastercard simply go to the top-up section, choose the appropriate type of payment system and specify the desired amount. Also, you will be asked to enter the name of the cardholder, card number, its expiration date, and a special three-digit code CVV2. As a rule, the transfer of funds is quite fast. But with the withdrawal of money from the casino the situation is more complicated. The fact that most online casinos do not transfer winnings to Mastercard, at best, can translate only the sum of the deposit, and to withdraw the remaining money have to use other methods.
Necessity to specify confidential data of the card when depositing confuses many players and makes them use alternative payment methods, for example, electronic payment systems. However, it is worth mentioning that Mastercard company has a good system of protection of clients’ funds. In addition, do not use bank cards in unknown or untrustworthy online casinos.
Advantages of using Mastercard in online casinos can be considered the speed of funds transfer, the possibility of using it in many online casinos and ease of use.
Disadvantages include the impossibility of withdrawing winnings on this card and the need to specify confidential data when making a deposit.
