Since 1966, MasterCard (née Master Charge) has been allowing payment for goods and services by private citizens; this company, also the suppliers of Eurocard, has naturally been used for online purchases basically ever since online purchases have existed. Most of the very first internet casino and online sportsbook websites accepted charging with MasterCard since the get-go.
Nearly every online casino out there today accepts MasterCard for deposits from its clients – though one important exception to this general, worldwide rule exists. In short, since the 2006 passage of the Unlawaful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act in the United States, MasterCard is no longer accepted as payment from U.S. residents. While a given online casino may accept U.S. players, these would-be customers will find that their MasterCard credit cards simply won’t go through. For these players, LiveCasinoDirect recommends any number of electronic payment solutions; please see our pages devoted to these elsewhere.
For players from Europe, Asia, Australia and essentially nearly all other areas of the world outside the United States, LiveCasinoDirect presents the following list of online casinos accepting MasterCard.
