The South African-facing Thunderbolt Casino is adding a new layer of security to players who fund their real money accounts with credit cards. From now on, all new players who want to transfer funds using a credit card will go through an extra measure, via a quick SMS verification.
According to Thunderbolt Casino, the new measures “won’t affect the regular registration process, it ensures additional security for your account and it only takes a few seconds to complete.”
What remains the same is that each new player needs to sign up and create a personal account before he or she can place a real money wager. If the new player wants to transfer funds by credit card, they visit the cashier and click on the credit card option (Mastercard, Visa, etc.). What has been added is that the request to pay via credit card now triggers an SMS verification feature. Players are requested to enter their mobile phone number (one which they have regular access to). They then wait for a verification code to arrive via SMS.
What is important to remember is that the verification process takes place only once per customer. In addition, only one phone number can be linked to one casino account.
Once the SMS is received, players enter the verification code in the fields provided by the online casino and immediately after, they can transfer the amount they want from their credit card account to the online casino account. On each occasion thereafter, the software proceeds and finalizes the transaction as the player’s mobile number is already linked to the corresponding account.
Thunderbolt introduced this extra measure to ensure safe money transactions and fun bets on literally hundreds of games, including slots, video poker and specialty games.
Thunderbolt Casino is operated by the same group that runs Springbok Casino. Powered by Realtime Gaming, players can enjoy fairness and accuracy, a smooth gaming experience and a secure and trustworthy platform.
The online casino allows depositing and withdrawing funds in ZAR, and players can claim extremely attractive deposit bonuses and free spins every week.
