MasterCard is a debit or credit card issued by your bank. When using the MasterCard to make purchases the payment from your bank to the merchant’s bank is processed by MasterCard Incorporated or MasterCard Worldwide. This is a multinational American company offering financial services. The company’s headquarters can be found in Purchase, New York. Initially the company was a co-op owned by the many institutions that issued the MasterCard branded card. Since 2006 it is a publicly traded company.
MasterCard payments at online casinos
Initially the card was named Interbank/Master Charge and was created by a few Californian banks in 1966 as a competitor to BankAmericard, today know as Visa. In 1979 Interbank became MasterCard.
Once your credit provider, usually your bank, approves you and issues you with a MasterCard credit card you can use it to make online purchases or to credit your online casino accounts. The casinos will need to have the MasterCard logo showing that they accept MasterCard. Your purchase is an agreement with MasterCard to pay whatever amount you have charged on your card. You authorise the purchase by entering your PIN number or in case of online casinos just your credit card information, as casino will use the CNP (Cardholder Not Present) transactions. Through an electronic verification system the online casino will check if you have available credit and process the payment. At the end of the month MasterCard will bill you and you will need to pay a minimum amount owned to them by a certain date.
MasterCard Worldwide also issues a debit card – MasterMoney which is connected to your bank account and any payments are directly reflected in your account.
MasterCard is has a worldwide reputation and presents a safe way to purchase online. The only disadvantage is that more and more online casinos reject credit cards and prefer alternative methods of payment.
