Credit cards can be a bit intimidating for those who do not use them as a payment method and are not very comfortable doing so, which is why online casinos in Africa offer other means of payment. But who already knows and already uses, knows well that this is a practical and easy to use payment method. No wonder virtual casino platforms generally accept the most common card types like Visa and MasterCard.
What is the difference between a Visa card and a Visa Electron?
Visa is a credit card whose holder has access to a credit line to make their payment. Already Visa Electron is a debit card, which will withdraw money to the account holder to make the payment.
Visa credit cards have very high acceptance levels and most online casinos accept them. Some casinos may also accept Visa Electron debit cards.
MasterCard Credit Card
Likewise, MasterCard cards, being the most widely used worldwide, are also widely accepted by online casinos as a means of payment.
How can I make payments with a card?
To make payments with a credit card just follow the instructions of the casino games portal, which are virtually the same on all major websites in Africa. Most sites require a security code to confirm that the cardholder is actually making the payment.
Some sites, to improve security rates, set a maximum cap on the amount that can be transferred with each transaction. It is also common to set a minimum value; minimum and maximum amounts may relate to the type of customer account created in the casino.
Finally, and as a security measure, some casino sites may require card registration on the site. In addition to the extra security, this registration will make future transfers faster.
How are withdrawals processed
Generally, the same card used to make the payments is also accepted by the casino so that the player can withdraw their prizes. However, and especially in the case of MasterCard cards, it may happen that the casino requires the player to have an alternative withdrawal account.
