mastercard for betting payments

MasterCard Worldwide (NYSE: MA) is a multinational corporation based in Purchase, New York, United States. Throughout the world, its principal business is to process payments between the banks of merchants and the banks of purchasers that use its "MasterCard" brand debit and credit cards to make purchases. MasterCard Worldwide has been a publicly traded company since 2006. Prior to its initial public offering, MasterCard Worldwide was a membership organization owned by the 25,000+ financial institutions that issue its card.

Most online betting websites have been assigned an "online gambling" merchant code by MasterCard. This electronic code is attached to every credit card transaction the company makes. Most US banks and financial institutions automatically reject all transactions with this code, so American players are generally unable to use MasterCard to make deposits. However, most European players can use credit cards to make deposits
