MasterCard in online gambling

The history of this payment system began back in 1966 in America when the Interbank Card Association was created. Two years later, the company started cooperation with the Eurocard system. The name MasterCard was introduced in 1979. The company was one of the first to evaluate the prospects of developing a commercial virtual sector.

You can use MasterCard when paying for a wide variety of goods and services offline and online, and also transferring money to most online gambling sites. MasterCard supports the majority of currencies around the world. The company guarantees the confidentiality of any client.

And what should you pay attention to when using this payment system?

  1. - Familiarize yourself with the terms of the issuing bank about hidden fees for payments;
  2. - Find out whether it is possible to withdraw your winnings to a Mastercard from a particular online casino or bookmaker (you may have to look for other ways to withdraw funds since some of the gambling platforms cannot send your winnings to MasterCard due to bank restrictions);
  3. - Releasing sensitive card information when making a deposit - you need to have absolute confidence in the sites you use;
  4. - Make sure that any online casino or a bookmaker is reliable and licensed. 


MasterCard is widely used for payments around the globe. It offers fast and secure payments.
