Sportsbooks That Accept Credit Card Deposits

Pretty much every online betting site will accept credit cards as a sportsbook deposit method. Here is the list of sportsbooks we recommend that take Visa or Mastercard deposits.

How do credit cards work?

Simply input your credit card number, name on the card and expiration date when making a deposit. Sportsbooks will verify this information and then charge your credit card the amount you deposit. This is the quickest and simplest way to make payments online. However, keep in mind that some issuing banks do not allow you to use your credit card to fund gaming accounts. Visa tends to work a little better than Mastercard in our experience.

Are credit cards safe?

Our recommended sportsbooks make credit card deposits as safe as they possibly can. They use encryption and secure connections so your credit card information is not shared with anybody. Several of them also require proof of identity any time you use a unique credit card to make a deposit.

What are credit card fees?

You won’t be charged any fees to make a credit card deposit with any of our recommended sportsbooks.

What are credit card limits?

Bet365 will accept credit card deposits of as much as $20,000. Pinnacle Sports caps credit card deposits at $1,000. Bodog accepts credit card deposits up to $2,000. Sports Interaction limits all new customers’ first deposits at $1,000. Credit card limits are generally high enough at online sportsbooks for most players.

Credit Card Withdrawals

Typically, you can withdraw money from your sportsbook account to the credit card you used to make your deposit. Some credit cards, however, do not allow you to receive money to them. In this case, sportsbooks will allow you to withdraw money with another deposit method.

Credit Card Currencies

Credit cards allow you to pay money in many different currencies, including Canadian. If you have to change currencies to complete your transaction, credit cards will charge you for the exchange.

The Bottom Line…

Credit cards can be a fast and convenient way to deposit into your sports betting account.  If your bank won’t let the transaction go through you can still use your card to fund Entropay which is a virtual Visa card.  Our Entropay review lists the sportsbooks currently accepting Entropay.
