At Microgaming Casino we are dedicated to the promotion of responsible gambling. As long as you can stick to the budget you’ve set yourself and control your spending habits, we recommend credit cards as a convenient way to fund your online casino account. The most popular types of credit cards accepted at most casinos are Visa and Mastercard although you will find a wide range of banking methods to choose from.
Why credit cards are ideal for online gambling
Credit cards are the fastest and simplest deposit methods where you enter your credit card details and make the deposit. It’s as easy as swiping your card when shopping without any special procedures to be followed except for when you add your card details to your online casino account for the first time. Some banks do not allow money back onto Visa or MasterCard credit cards so you will need to withdraw onto an eWallet or use the casinos check or wire transfer facility, which attracts a small fee. For example, in the UK, you can only withdraw funds back onto a MasterCard issued in the UK.
The terms and conditions vary depending on which country you register for an online casino account. UK credit card holders are protected under Section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act where they can claim between £100 and £30,000 should there be any issue or breach of contract by the online casino. While an online casino does not charge any fee, credit cards issuers often charge a higher rate of interest when a customer makes a depot at a casino. This is often the same rate applicable for a cash withdrawal on your card. However, it would be prudent to check with your credit card issuer about any charges and fee. Credit cards may or may not suit your circumstances and gambling style. Microgaming Casino once more suggests that players ought to refrain from using credit cards if they are not good at budgeting. There is always the option to use eWallets. We care, and would like you to make a well informed decision.
