Debit cards are by far the most common means by which players deposit and withdraw funds. They are preferred over credit cards as the possibility of getting a rejected purchase is lowered. A debit card, like a credit card, is usually branded with one of the leading financial institutions that specialise in card and digital transactions which is why your card will either have the MasterCard, Visa, Visa Electron, Laser, Switch or Maestro brand logo on it. These brands are important for the authority that they carry. Having one these brands on your debit card means you can be assured of reliability and safety when conducting your mobile casino transactions. Using anyone of the above mentioned debit card brands means you’ll have the following benefits:
- A reputable and trusted means of making online transactions
- A debit card with world-wide applications
- A deposit mechanism that lets you keep track of your spending
Depositing with a Debit Card
The process of using your debit card to make a mobile casino deposit is quite simple. If you’ve procured goods and services online before, then this shouldn’t be anything new to you. However, if it’s your first time, then you’ll find all the information you require right here! First off, you will need to access the Casino’s banking lobby – all online and mobile casinos have banking lobbies/cashiers. These lobbies are filled with every possible means to transact with the casino and includes options solely for withdrawing, for depositing as well as ones that can do both, like a debit card can.
Once you’re in the banking lobby, look out for the Maestro, Visa, Visa Electron, MasterCard, Laser or Switch logo and click on it. What will follow will be a series of simple prompts or instructions that will require you to fill out the following information:
- The fill 16 digit number on the front of the card
- The expiry date
- Your name as it appears on the card
- The CVC (Card Verification Code) on the back of the card
You can choose to have the mobile casino retain these details for the sake of convenience – you don’t want to have to fill out these details each time you deposit as it can become tedious. Also, the casino employs cutting edge encryption software that protects these details, meaning no one else will be able to access this data. Once you’ve entered in the above information you’ll need to decide how much you’d like to deposit and within seconds the funds should reflect in your mobile casino account.
Withdrawing with a Debit Card
Most debit cards linked to a bank account will allow you to make deposits to have the funds return to the source once you choose to withdraw. In order to make a deposit, simply click on the cashier tab and select how much money you’d like to withdraw. There will be a pending process and if it’s a large amount of money, the casino reserves the right to request some kind of identity verification – such as ID and Proof of Residence. While this can be annoying, it’s a lawful requirement. However, once approved the funds are released and usually take anything between 2 – 6 days to appear in your debit card account.
