Depositing to your online casino with Visa is not a good idea.

Playing casino games at your favourite online casino is great fun but also give some thought to the deposit options that are available and  make sure you choose the one most suitable for own circumstances. For example funding your casino with Visa is in our opinion not one of the better methods and for clarity we are talking about a Visa Credit Card. We say this because it is clear that Visa do not like gambling companies as they will charge you up to 2% for the privilege and that is in addition to whatever the online casino might charge you and what is more as they consider it a cash transaction, just like taking cash from an ATM they will start to charge you interest from the day of the transaction so by the time you get your bill there will already be an interest charge which can come as an unpleasant surprise. Strangely enough it is not only online casinos or bookmakers but anything associated with gambling that this charge is applied to. You may consider the 2% plus the interest charge a small amount but it should be viewed in relation to the house edge on you casino games. Different games have a different house edge but the lower ones such as Roulette or Blackjack have an edge of around 3% so by depositing with a visa credit card you are doubling the edge against you which in our book is not good gambling sense. Far better to use either a debit card or an e-wallet such as PayPal or similar and if you want, you can fund that with your credit card without the additional premium..
