I need help with my Mastercard

Since Mastercard themselves do not issue credit cards, your first point of contact when you have issues with any transactions is the bank at which you got your card. This is usually the best option as the staffs at the bank would’ve already established a good working relationship with the company you tried to make a transaction to, thereby making it easier for them to resolve the issue with the said company.
If for whatever reasons you would like to make contact with Mastercard directly, you’ll be glad to know they are always within a call or email away.
Credit, Debit and Prepaid cards
Choosing which type of Mastercard depends on several factors. One of which is UIGEA gambling bill which was passed in 2006. Because of this, a number of US players have found it difficult to use their credit/debit cards to deposits funds into online gambling sites.
For this reason, prepaid cards became available and made it easier for players who were having trouble depositing funds with their credit/debit cards. Sometimes there are also special bonuses for using prepaid cards. Please checkout “……” for further details on prepaid cards.
