UnionPay is the official bank card of the People's Republic of China. The card is linked to bank accounts across China and accepted in a growing number of countries and websites. Some online casinos allow players to use their UnionPay cards to deposits. See this list of UnionPay casinos to find places where your card can be used.
Depositing with UnionPay
To make a deposit with your UnionPay card at any of the online casinos on this page, open up the casino and log in for real money play. Visit the cashier and go into the “Deposit” section. Find “UnionPay” or “credit/debit card (with UnionPay logo displayed)” to begin making your deposit. Enter the amount you wish to deposit and your card information. If entered correctly, your deposit will be available for play instantly.
Advantages of UnionPay
The UnionPay card provides a very convenient method of depositing. Since it is directly linked to a bank account, users can keep track of how much they deposit and avoid overspending easily, which is much more difficult to do with a regular credit card.
Compared to prepaid debit cards, UnionPay is much cheaper and usually free. If you are concerned about keeping processing costs low and have a withdrawal method available, we highly recommend using UnionPay (or another standard debit card) to make deposits.
Disadvantages of UnionPay
Some players may be hesitant to share their UnionPay card information over the Internet. While there are some risks involved in disclosing this information, almost all online casinos employ SSL encryption and firewall technology to keep it from leaking out of the network. As long as you trust the casino itself, there should be no issues.
UnionPay cannot be used as a withdrawal method. If you make a deposit through UnionPay, you will need to find an alternative method of withdrawal. You may be able to cash out directly back to your bank account, or use a third-party e-wallet or money transfer service. Compare the available withdrawal methods in your casino cashier to make an informed decision.
