Nowadays probably everyone knows about the possibility to use a credit card to purchase various wares or services online. Mastercard also allows you to make deposits in most online poker rooms directly to your player account. The methods will differ only marginally from room to room.
Payments and Transfers
When depositing money you will at some point be prompted to enter your Card Verification Code (CVC2). This code consists of the last 3 digits on the back of your Mastercard. This Card Verification Code is used to ensure that no one else can use a bill that you paid for with your credit card (the CVC2 will not show up on any bills) in order to prevent fraud.
Poker Payouts with Mastercard
Currently one of the poker rooms we present on Max Poker Bonus offer the opportunity to credit your Mastercard with the money on your poker account, namely Party Poker. For the other rooms you will have to take advantage of one of the numerous other options which we have listed and explained in our deposit methods.
Tips and Hints Mastercard Poker
All the poker rooms presented on our website are very respectable rooms that enjoy a very good reputation throughout the industry and amongst the players. Nonetheless you should make sure to periodically check your credit card statement for irregular activities (which you should do regardless of whether you use your card to make internet transactions or not). If in doubt at any time immediately contact your Mastercard provider.
Always double check whether you haven’t landed on a wrong and possibly fraudulent site (for example because of a typo) which pretends to be a serious company or affiliated with a certain poker room. This applies to transactions in the internet at any time regardless of the recipient and the method used.
Most sites will use a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) as added security when transferring money and providing your credit card info. This means that the card details will be encoded before being transmitted between you and the poker site (or the internet shop). You will recognise sites protected by SSL by a security symbol (a little lock) in your browser window (usually in the lower area of your browser frame). Another indication for SSL is if the URL starts with “https” instead of “http”.
