There are many ways you can gamble online. It never used to be this way, but nowadays you can use everything from credit and debit cards, to bank transfers, PayPal and more. The most common way to gamble online is by using Visa debit cards and Visa credit cards, one of the most popular cards of its type in Canada, and in the wider world for that matter.
The Benefits of Gambling with a Visa
One of the main benefits of using a Visa card to gamble is the fact that most gambling sites accept them. Whether you want to play some slots, blackjack, roulette or even poker, you can guarantee that your Visa will open doors for you. Many sites will accept both Visa debit and credit cards, but all of them should accept at least one of them, most likely the debit card.
Another benefit is the security of the card. The Visa credit card in particular is one of the most secure payment methods you can use online. Credit cards exist for a reason and that reason is not just to provide endless credit. If it was, then there would be no reason for those who pay off their credit cards every month to use one. The thing that sets credit cards apart, and the thing that Visa also offers, is complete security. If you purchase an item over the internet using your Visa credit card and that item fails to arrive, only for the company to refuse to acknowledge your complaints, then you can go to your credit card provider and they will initiate a chargeback, forcing the company to give up the money and pay you back instantly. The same goes for online casinos that take your money fraudulently. Such security has also been used to safeguard people against credit card fraud, which is increasing in the modern age. In the event that your credit card is stolen, along with the credit on it, then you can simply file a claim with your credit card company and they will give you your money back. They are so used to doing this that they rarely think twice and will never second guess you.
That means that with a credit card you are free to use as many sites as you please, even if they look a little suspicious. Whilst we would never advise you to use such websites, if you do and if anything happens, your money will be safe.
As the money spent on a credit card is all credit, you could also argue that another benefit of using a visa credit card to gamble is that you can gamble with money that is not yours, winning money that will be yours and then using a portion of that to pay off your credit. That way no money has ever left your bank and you are effectively being “supped” by your bank. Obviously, we wouldn’t recommend doing this either, because it is very easy to get carried away with yourself and before long you could have lost more money than you can afford to lose.
The Best Sites for Your Visa
Simply put, the best gambling sites for your Visa card are the best gambling sites period. This is because most sites accept Visa and the few that do not are clearly missing such an obvious trick that they should not be trusted.
Our favorite online casino at the moment, and one that has led the way for us for several months now, is Royal Vegas Casino. Here you can deposit and withdraw using your Visa cards, and they also have stacks of other banking options available, including many web wallets and prepaid cards typically not accepted by other online casinos.
With Royal Vegas Casino you will be allowed to withdraw to a credit card, but our advice is only to withdraw the amount that you have accumulated on that card in that month, otherwise you’ll just be stacking up the credit and may never see the cash. When withdrawing more than you deposited to a credit card, you may also face issues from time to time. To get around this, we tend to withdraw the amount that we deposited (therefore removing that charge from our credit card bill) and then stick the rest in a bank or a web wallet. You will be free to do this and shouldn’t face any issues at all. If you do encounter a problem then simply email or phone Royal Vegas Casino and let them know, they are usually very quick to respond and have been nothing but helpful when we have needed them in the past.
Their sister site, Platinum Play, is also worth checking out. They accept the same long list of banking options as Royal Vegas Casino do, and they also use the same software for their actual casino. The only real difference is in the promotions offered, because whereas you can pick up $1,200 in cash as a new member on Royal Vegas Casino, you will be offered 1500 in free bets as a new member on Platinum Play.
