how does visa work?

The way Visa works is simple. When you use a credit card powered by Visa to fund your online casino account, you simply enter your card number, your name (on the card), the expiry date, the cvv number and the amount you want to deposit. Simple as that.

Before your deposit is processed, Visa checks whether you have sufficient credit to use the card, through an application called Verified by Visa. Once Visa confirms that you have the required credit limit, your transaction is approved.
