Visa: A Brief History
As a company Visa carries a legacy stretching all the way back to 1958 when Bank of America launched its very first consumer credit card program. In 1975 the very first debit card was launched and in 1979 Bank of America became Visa, a name pronounced exactly the same in all countries, thus entrenching its ability to appeal to an international audience. In 1983 Visa launched the first ATM (Automated Teller Machine) to offer cash availability 24/7 and in 1995 the first chip cards were unveiled. In 2007 the company restructured itself to become a global corporation known as Visa Inc. 2008 was the year in which it launched its first mobile platform. Today Visa offers its services to over 200 countries and is one of the most common means by which players are known to make deposits and withdrawals at online casinos.
General Online Casino Withdrawal Information
Its worth noting that a withdrawal is not necessary after each gaming session. Instead, you can maintain your account with a positive balance which will be recorded by the casino’s server. This way you save on processing costs which are always hidden somewhere, be it on behalf of your bank or your e-wallet. It is also worth noting that not all payment mechanisms will have a processing fee, but let’s be frank, this is still banking, and banks and financial institutions always have ways of making money off you. So, in essence, only withdraw when you need to.
All your withdrawals are made through the casino software. All you need to do is click on the ‘bank/cashier’ button, then on ‘withdrawal’ and enter in the amount you’d like to take out. The withdrawal amount is then recorded and processed within anything between 2 – 3 days. Thereafter the process of the cash reaching you can be 1 – 6 business days. In the case of Visa it’s usually 2-6 business days.
Countries to Which Visa Withdrawals Cannot be issued:

Making a Deposit with your Visa Card
Making a deposit with your visa is the easiest thing in the world, and if you’ve done business with other websites then your casino experience will be exactly the same or very similar. Simply click on Banking and then on Deposit. You will then be directed into the banking lobby of the casino and before you will appear all the options. You will find all the Visa options under ‘Credit Cards and ‘Debit Cards’. Click on the ‘More’ key to reveal the full extent of the Visa options and choose your preferred one. Once you’ve done that you’ll need to key in your Visa card details which will entail the following:
• Card Number
• Expiry Date
• Card Holder’s Name
• Bank Name
• If Card is prepaid or virtual
• CVC Number
Click ‘Next’ to confirm the amount and the transaction to be completed. You will now have online casino credits to use on whatever game you’d like. Something worth noting when it comes to Visa is that there will be times when you might get a rejected purchase despite there being money on your account. This is due mainly to the fact that banks aren’t always that keen on transactions with online casinos – it’s why e-wallets and things of that nature are often recommended as better alternatives. However, in the case of your Visa deposits, the best advice we can give you is to simply deposit in odd increments instead of flat, even ones. Thus, don’t deposit NZ$ 20 but instead deposit NZ$ 20.99. A simple change like this improves the likelihood of an accepted transaction.
