Entropay provides prepaid virtual Visa cards that are accepted anywhere you see the Visa logo. These cards work just like other prepaid cards, except Entropay cards exist entirely online. When you sign up for an account, you will receive a unique card number that you can use anywhere Visa is accepted.
How to use Entropay
Visit Entropay.com and click on the “sign up now” button to create an Entropay account. The next step is to fund your account. Entropay cards are prepaid, so you don’t have to worry about credit checks or anything like that. Just choose a method to fund your account and you will have a virtual Visa card in seconds.
After you fund your Entropay account, you’ll get your virtual Visa card right away. All the information you need to make purchases online will be given to you as soon as you load your card. This includes a 16 digit card number that you can provide at your casino’s cashier.
One of the advantages of playing at Entropay casinos it that you do not have to provide your banking details to each casino that you join. You only give them the virtual Visa card number that Entropay gave you during the signup process. And remember – these cards are prepaid and they prevent you from accidentally overspending at the casino.
Fees and Currencies
Entropay accounts and virtual Visa cards are provided free of charge and there are no fees for spending money on your card. A 4.95% fee is charged if you load your Entropay card with a personal debit or credit card. If you use a bank transfer to fund your account, that fee drops to 3.95%.
A 1.95% fee is charged when you receive funds from a gambling site to your virtual card. Withdrawals from your Entropay account to a personal credit or debit card have a flat fee of $6, £3 or €4.50.
As far as currencies go, Entropay accounts can be hosted in US dollars, pounds or euros. Entropay also provides currency conversions for 14 additional currencies. Exchange rates are based on current rates and you will always know exactly how much money (in your local currency) the transaction will total to.
Can US customers use Entropay casinos?
No. Entropay does accept USA customers, but it automatically blocks all transactions to casinos for its US account holders. Entropay does not want to run afoul of banking laws in the US and does not process transactions to gambling sites for USA players.
If you live in the United States, there are several other options that I recommend. For one, you can just use your actual debit card or credit card to deposit. In most cases, your transaction will go through successfully. If that doesn’t work, take a look at the main casino deposits page for a list of US-friendly deposit options.
