Visa Electron | Online Casinos & Betting Sites Accepting Visa Electron

Visa ElectronVisa Electron is a debit card which forms part of the larger Visa brand. This includes the Visa credit card. However, the Visa Electron debit card works differently to the way in which the Visa credit card does.

This is because the debit card system actually debits existing funds that are held in your bank. A credit card, on the other hand, works like a loan would work. You would apply for a line of credit from your bank. This would then be issued in the form of a credit card.

The amount that is available on your credit card would depend on several factors. These are determined by your bank. Not everyone can apply for a credit card. In most circumstances, your bank will offer a credit card to you once your credit rating or standing with the bank allows for this facility.

How does Visa Electron work?

It is also one of the safest, thanks to the built-in 4-6 digit PIN (personal identification number). Each debit requires this PIN before completing any online casino deposits.
