Prepaid Debit Cards Hope to Encourage Responsible Online Gambling

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

GamCare, the leading national authority on the provision of advice, practical help, support and counseling in addressing the social impact of gambling, have today supported the use of prepaid debit
  cards as a practical means by which online gamblers can monitor their online gambling budget.

To reinforce this message, Eclipse Prepaid MasterCard today announced the launch of a specialist landing page for customers wanting to deposit money into their gaming accounts. That page is at:

The landing page demonstrates why a prepaid debit card like the Eclipse Prepaid MasterCard is such a useful addition to any online gambler's wallet – they are able to maintain closer control over there entertainment budget.

Being a MasterCard, the Eclipse Prepaid Card is accepted at any gaming site you choose to play at. You top it up either by anonymous transfer from your regular account or by phone in less than five minutes, choosing how much 'entertainment budget' you want to spend in any given month. As it's prepaid, you can never go overdrawn.

The only other question is where players set their gaming limit, and that can only be answered by the individual.

Alex Lubin, Director of Eclipse Prepaid MasterCard says:-

"Anything that supports responsible gaming is positive for the industry. It demonstrates one of the many incremental benefits of the Eclipse prepaid MasterCard as a payment device"

Eileen Kinghan, Marketing Director of GamCare says:-

"Using a prepaid debit card when gambling online can help players stick to the limits they set themselves. This is one way of gambling responsibly, helping gamblers to avoid financial difficulties."

Eileen continues: - "GamCare provides training and advice to industry on meeting their social responsibility commitments and recognises best practice in player protection through GamCare Certification. Operators who offer this feature will be helping to demonstrate their commitment to player protection and corporate social responsibility".
