EntroPay is an innovative virtual pre-paid debit card that behaves like a credit card, in that it uses the Visa network. The EntroPay Virtual Visa card needs to be funded before it can be used for online payments, and that can be at any vendor that would normally accept a Visa card. Entropay is owned by a British company and was introduced in 2003 as a way to enable more people to make electronic payments regardless of their credit standing.
The Entropay Virtual Visa card is issued by the Anglo-Maltese Bank of Valleta, and works in precisely the same manner as a normal credit card. The only differences with the EntroPay card is that a) it is virtual and not plastic, and b) unlike with a credit card your spending is limited to the value of funds you pre-loaded onto the EntroPay account by way of a debit card, credit card or direct bank transfer.
Yes. The EntroPay service is owned and managed by Ixaris Systems Ltd. The company is based in Britain and holds a license from the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). As such, EntroPay as a payment provider is subject to strict rules and regulations. For example, all user log-in and transaction details are 128-bits encrypted to guarantee data protection.
When using EntroPay, just the same as any other pre-paid debit card, standard fees do apply. Withdrawing funds from your online casino account carries a 2% charge. Note however that using the card for payments are free, and none of the casinos we recommend will charge you for deposits.
To become an active EntroPay user, simply enter the EntroPay website and follow the instructions to create an account. You will immediately receive a 16 digital card number – similar to a credit card, as well as an expiry date and cvv or cvc number. Incidentally, should you wish, you can also apply for a plastic pre-paid MasterCard that can be used at all accepting vendor (both cards are directly linked to your EntroPay account).
To make a deposit into your online casino account, log onto the casino’s payment or cashier page, and select EntroPay under the options listed. A form will pop up for you to complete – the information required will be the amount you want to pay, name of cardholder, virtual card number, the card’s expiry date and the 3 digit cvv or cvc code. Upon confirmation by EntroPay, the deposited amount will then reflect immediately.
Players can use EntroPay to withdraw funds from their online casino account just as easily as depositing it. On the casino’s cash out page, simply opt for EntroPay as the withdrawal method, enter the required amount and other obligatory information, and your money will be credited straight to your EntroPay account.
