Play for Real Money Using Mastercard


How can I make purchases using Mastercard?

Mastercard purchase is fully integrated via the cashier screen. When you click on ‘Cashier’ and then on ‘Make Deposit’, you will see an option to use Mastercard. Click on the Mastercard button and enter the required information, including the currency and amount you wish to deposit.

For added security, a Card Verification Number (CVN) is required. The CVN is a 3-digit number located on the back of the card, above the signature.

When you click ‘Submit’, your request will be submitted to your bank servers via one of our processors and you will receive confirmation in about a minute.

Please note that if you are making transactions with a currency other than your card currency, your card issuer will apply their own exchange rate and fee to the transaction. Customers are therefore advised to check exchange rates and fees with their issuers.

Can I make ‘Fast Deposit’ purchases using my Mastercard?

The ‘Fast Deposit’ feature is available for Mastercard deposits. ‘Fast Deposit’ is a quick and convenient way to fund your account using your preferred payment method. Once setup, you will see the Fast Deposit button where available, allowing you to review and submit transactions without going via the Cashier.

Gift and Prepaid Mastercard

Making a deposit using a Gift or Prepaid Mastercard is the same as making a deposit using a regular Mastercard, as outlined above. Please note that not all Gift and Prepaid Mastercard cards will allow you to deposit successfully.

Before you purchase a Gift or Prepaid Mastercard, please email our Deposit Assistance Department (DAD) to request information on Gift and Prepaid cards that can be used to successfully deposit.

What are the deposit limits for Mastercard?

Please visit the Cashier for your current deposit limits.

What about my withdrawals?

Please see our Withdrawal Policy for available withdrawal methods.

How does the exchange to local currency work?

We use the prevailing mid-market rate provided by XE (plus a small fee if applicable) to convert your deposits to your account currency. For additional information, please read our Real Money Transaction Processing and Currency Conversion Terms and Conditions.

What will it cost me to use Mastercard?

We do not charge any other fees for using Mastercard. Players are responsible for any fees charged by their card issuer.
