You can use Visa to deposit in most poker rooms. If for any reason your deposit via Visa is being rejected or the poker room doesn’t offer it, you can use your Visa to transfer to an e-wallet (check out our reviews of NETeller, Skrill,…) that is accepted by the poker room of your choice.
Payments and Transfers
When using Visa for depositing money into your poker account you will have to enter your Card Verification Code (CVC2) at some point in order to provide proof that you are the actual owner of the card. The CVC2 is a 3-digit number on the back of your card. This method is a very effective security measure as this number will not show up on any documents so no one is able to extract this information from a carelessly disposed receipt.
Poker Payouts with Visa
Non-US citizens with a Visa card should not experience any trouble asking for a transfer from their poker account directly to their Visa. Make sure to contact your Visa provider if you are not sure about the details and confirm with the poker room whether there are any restrictions for your personal situation due to legal issues.
If there should indeed be any problems you can always fall back on other withdrawal options available for the respective poker room.
Tips and Hints Visa 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 Visa provider.
Always pay attention 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 on 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 giving 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 recognize 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”.
