Based on reader emails today and our own experiences it appears as if VISA deposits at U.S. online sportsbooks are being declined at a much higher rate than normal and something is affecting purchases. Every veteran American gambler knows credit cards were once the easiest way to fund offshore accounts back in the 1990s and 2000s and were still fairly reliable now in 2020.
The cause of the VISA declines are unknown at this time, however, the fact this is happening on Super Bowl Sunday is suspicious to say the least. In any event, here is a list of the top USA betting sites with a variety of banking methods who are taking action on the last NFL game of the season.
There seems to be many online casinos affected and countless credit card transactions have been rejected since this morning, with an emphasis on VISA attempts. The acceptance rate for MasterCard transfers looks to be slightly lower than normal too so perhaps something has changed with established processing techniques operators have been using for years.
Not to worry though, because those readers who only have VISA or MasterCard in their wallet can sign up at MyBookie Sportsbook to take advantage of a new payment system that facilitates iGaming transactions using credit cards. It’s called DirectBit and it basically allows members to deposit with cryptocurrency via regular credit cards. The process is simple, seamless, and happens in the background without effort so it’s not necessary to open up a crypto exchange wallet or trade coins at an exchange. A couple of easy clicks is all it takes to get the job done.
Millions of people across the country are trying to bet on Super Bowl LIV today, with many industry observers predicting record action will be placed on this evening’s match up between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers in Miami, Florida. Ironically, this latest development might be the catalyst that finally pushes stubborn bettors to switch over to Bitcoin, Litecoin, or Ethereum so they never have to worry about funding their accounts again.
We will of course be updating this situation as soon as we have more information.
