A bank or credit union offers a debit card to any user who opens a checking account with the institution. Unlike a credit card that carries a loan, a debit card uses funds already in the bank account. Some debit cards incur fees for every use, while others are free. Some of the favorite options among live casino players are:
MasterCard: Founded by various members of regional bank card associations on 3 November 1966 in the US. Its customer base spans across more than 210 countries
Visa: Founded by Dee Hock on 18 September 1958 in Fresno, California. Operates in over 200 countries
