Based on reader feedback 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. Everyone 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. There seems to be many operators 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 who only have plastic in their wallets can signup at WTO-compliant MyBookie to take advantage of a new payment system facilitating 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 wallet or trade coins at an exchange, a couple of easy clicks gets 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 players to switch over to Bitcoin, Litecoin, or Ethereum so they never have to worry about funding accounts again.
We will of course be updating this situation as soon as we have more information.
