The Nevada Gaming Commission has approved the use of prepaid debit cards that are linked to a slots players rewards account in any of the states casinos. The overwhelming majority ‘yes’ vote, which was supported by many Las Vegas gambling businesses means that once the technology being used to make this happen is approved, then slots players in Las Vegas can opt to use their prepaid debit card instead of their credit cards. There has been many challenges over the years on the use of credit cards in Las Vegas casinos and this is seen as a step forward by many, in that prepaid debit card holders may set their own limits on the amount on the cards.
This move is being welcomed on two fronts, and as well as addressing problem gambling, it also lowers the costs involved in handling transactions for casinos, and the move is being welcomed by major casino operators such as Caesar’s and MGM Resorts International. There is also the safety aspect involved and prepaid cards mean that slots players no need to carry large amounts of cash with them. Prepaid cards are now used regularly in online casinos too, and many players, similar to those players in land based casinos, find that they provide a simple and effective way of being able to enjoy real money slots. US online slots players may use any Visa prepaid card that is OK for international transfers, and these cards are easily obtained either online, or even in grocery stores and gas stations. They provide a safe and secure method of depositing funds in an online casino, and are becoming extremely popular.
