Betting With Visa
Introduction to Using VISA
VISA is by far and away the most popular way of making a deposit into a betting account and all UK betting sites accept this method. Most will have VISA listed as their default option when you sign up and the majority of players opt to use this as it’s quick, easy and the majority of punters have access to one.
It comes in two forms with VISA debit and VISA credit available and although most account holders will generally stick to just one of them, it is possible to alternate between the two.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Using VISA
Online betting sites make it incredibly easy to sign-up and deposit using VISA as they simply require the card number, expiry date and security details (on the back) which is straightforward and takes a matter of seconds. Once you’ve submitted these, the sites will offer to retain your details but this is optional.
Betting accounts are funded immediately and it’ll take between 2-3 days for the money to leave your bank account. Withdrawals can also be made to the same card which is not an option available with all methods. There are no fees attributed to VISA debit but occasionally VISA Credit can incur a small charge.
Betting sites run very tight ships when it comes to depositing and VISA is a perfectly safe way of funding an account. Information is kept secure and encrypted and it’s within the interest of the betting sites itself to avoid any breaches of security.
It is absolutely imperative to ensure that you have enough funds for paying bills before depositing into your betting account and all transactions appear on bank statements which could be construed as a negative if you don’t wish for these to be displayed.
Depositing Using VISA
It’s easy to see why depositing using VISA is the most popular way of funding accounts with tight security operations in place. Once you’ve submitted your details, it’s quick and easy to choose an amount to deposit with a number of default selections such as £10 or £50 available to make the process even quicker.
Some betting sites offer an incentive to deposit via VISA Credit with occasional bonuses for users who deposit above a set amount on a weekly basis. If you are regularly using this option, it will be hugely advantageous to sign-up to sites which offer these kind of incentives.
Withdrawing using VISA
It is possible to withdraw using VISA debit and credit cards and it usually takes between 2-5 days for the payment to be made into your bank account so always bear this in mind when managing finances. Transactions can occasionally be delayed by public holidays and weekends.
There is no fee attached for withdrawing using these methods with the majority of bookmakers although some additional details may be required before completion.
Simply select withdraw, ensure the method is selected as VISA credit/debit and enter the amount you would like to remove from your account. It is possible to withdraw using this method even if you have deposited via another.
