Many casino online use PayPal as their payment gateway. Unfortunately not all casinos that use PayPal are allowed to accept all credit card payments. Most of these are casinos that use poker and blackjack as their main games. To clarify the above mentioned country list, here is a list of territories that are generally accepted by most casinos and these are acceptable countries for every website: USA, Canada, UK, South Africa, Australia, Mexico, Europe, Japan, Thailand and of course some casinos that use PayPal: Romania, Spain, and Hong Kong.
Casino online that use PayPal are only allowed to accept card payment if the card is a Visa or MasterCard. Most of the cards that can be used by casino are Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and Diners Club.
One of the reasons why these credit card transactions are allowed is because most of these casinos offer online gambling and credit card payments. This means that the casino’s security is ensured by having the payment gateway for credit cards and a secured system. The payment gateway for these cards usually only accepts transactions that are in the form of a debit card (with the card’s numbers being written on the back of it) and usually does not accept any type of credit card transactions. Casino that use PayPal are also expected to accept only the highest level of security encryption available in the internet and this is what make PayPal a safe and secure payment method for casinos online.
In order to verify the country that the casino online is operating in you should contact the local authorities or the gaming commission to the casinos that use PayPal in your country. It’s better that you do it as early as possible, since not all websites allow verification of the country they are operating in. Some websites don’t give the card number until after the transaction has been complete and if you were to send them the card number first, they will delay the processing of the transaction until the card has been returned. Most of the websites that operate only accept cards from major countries, but some also accept cards from smaller countries too.
Once you have verified the countries that your casino is operating in, you should contact PayPal so you can request for a new activation code, this will enable you to use your card on their casino and all the casinos that use PayPal will be able to accept your card. They will also ask you to fill out an application form with the necessary personal information like name, email address and country where you want to receive the credit card.
After receiving your card, the casino will need to check if the card that you are using is still valid and PayPal requires the card holder to confirm his or her credit card information so that they can verify if the card is valid. If there is no valid card left in the holder’s wallet or if the card is rejected, the casino will need the cardholder to prove his or her identity before they will be able to process your card and send your money to your account.
