A debit card is also known as a “check card,” and most banks and credit unions issue them for free when you open up a checking account. These cards are generally welcomed wherever credit cards can be used, and popular brands that are accepted at online casinos for deposits and withdrawals include Visa, Maestro, Switch and Laser.
Debit cards are linked to the money in your checking account, and can be used for purchases, online transactions, ATM withdrawals and other types of transfers. The fundamental difference between a debit card and credit card is that with a debit card you are pulling from your own funds, whereas you are borrowing the bank’s money on a credit card.
A lot of well-known debit cards can be used for casino play. Casinos actually prefer the use of debit cards over credit cards when making deposits, in order to limit their amount of rejected payments. Simply follow the prompts under ‘payments’ on your casino’s cashier page to fund your account. If you are unsure whether your card is catered for, check with your provider first.
