Casinos that accept Mastercard
MasterCard is an established corporation throughout the world and is quoted on the New York stock market. One of the most accepted methods of payment, along with Visa, MasterCard serves as an intermediary between the bank and the merchandiser. It was first created in 1966 by the United California Bank (formed by Wells Fargo, the Crocker National Bank and the Bank of California) and was introduced as competition for the Bank of America's own creation, BankAmericaCard, which is otherwise known as Visa.
MasterCard technology is used by more than 25,000 financial institutions, and the company is based in New York. MasterCard is accepted virtually everywhere around the globe: the way it works is similar to Visa except that the standing charge is slightly more expensive. The main difference between the two networks is that Mastercard's upper limits are higher.
You can withdraw money, carry out online and live transactions, and stagger your payments. A Pin code is supplied to you for when you use it to pay in a real shop or when you take out money at a cash machine. For online payments, you're asked for the 16 digit number, the name of the card holder and the cryptogram (on the rear of the card) for extra security. Most online casinos accept this extremely popular means of payment, even if some have rather surprisingly started to refuse it. Beware also the fact that some online establishments charge extra for paying in and especially for making withdrawals via MasterCard - so make sure you find out the facts from the online casino in question before going ahead with your transaction.
