South African Online Casinos Accepting Credit Card
South African online casino players are able to access a variety of credit card banking methods. These include Mastercard, Visa card, Diners Club and Amex.
Mastercard and Visa card are definitely the two most popular options when wanting to use the safe and secure option of credit card payment for online casino banking.
Unfortunately not as many South African online casinos accept Diners Club, although some do, and even fewer will accept American Express, due to US banking legislation. There are some casinos that do accept this card, but they are rare.
It is really important to make sure that the casino you choose accepts your brand of a credit card before you begin playing. Generally, the website will have a banking page where all banking options are listed.
One issue when using a credit card on an online gambling site is that you are able to use money that is not yet in your account. While this gives great freedom to those players who know that they will be able to pay off their account at the end of the month, those who are unsure if they will have sufficient funds may run into trouble.
How to Open an Account
Generally, a player using a credit card will use a card that is also used for their general credit card banking, supplied by their particular bank. New credit cards must be applied for through the bank.
Deposits and Withdrawals
When using a credit card for online casino banking, it is as easy as accessing the casino site’s banking page. Then just fill in your credit card details as you would for any other online purchase, and choose whether you wish to withdraw or deposit money into your online casino account. It is important to note that any transactions made on your credit card will be printed on the following month’s statement. Some casinos list credit card payments made to or from them merely as ‘purchases’ but others may list the actual name of the casino on the credit card statement.
