Associations of most of the member financial institutions manage Mastercard, the mot popular credit card company. These members, usually banks, issue instructions to the credit cards to their consumers and sign up merchants to accept the card. These associations have developed methods to block internet gambling transactions, based on the codes that they require of e-commerce merchants to use to identify the type of transaction.
There comes a situation wherein you have figured out which internet casino and sports book have the best reputation, and then upon looking at the games and betting lines available, downloaded the software of the site you have decided to play. Then when you give the site your credit card data for a deposit of $100, you get a message that says, “transaction denied.” This is quite common among players living in the U.S., but most of the time, it has nothing to do with the credit status of the would-be player. It is just that someone out there has thought that you cannot use your credit card for online gambling. Although most of the casinos accept Mastercard, the same thing prevails with them too!
