Casino News: MasterCard finds the way to block US players

MasterCard finds the way to block US players

 February 8, 2010, 10:07 am (8 years ago)
MasterCard has at last figured out a method to reject payments to online casinos from American residents. Currently, MasterCard is not usable anymore for players to fund their accounts at a wide range of online gambling venues, such as online poker and sportbetting websites. Fortunately, Canadian players still can use MasterCard in order to transfer their money into their account.

The credit card company already has been putting their efforts in coming up with a method to avoid access from American citizens by utilizing coding systems to spot the locations of its users and the services they were using. However, online casino operators figured out ways to circumvent the identification procedure. Throughout 2 months of MasterCard’s coding execution, American-friendly casino operators found a solution already, identifying themselves as un-coded transactions. It is interesting to observe this battle of cat and mouse between MasterCard and online casino operators.
