EcoCard is a prepaid Mastercard that is accepted by many online casinos for deposits. EcoCard is a product of ecoPayz and can only be used in conjunction with an ecoAccount (eWallet). With the EcoCard you can deposit only as much, as you have gathered on connected ecoAccount.
If you are not familiar with how ecoPayz works, we have compiled all the information here. If you just want to know, which online casinos accept EcoCard, below you will find full overview. Further information about the EcoCard can be found under the casinos list.
In order to receive an ecoCard, first you need to open a customer account with ecoPayz. Registration with ecoPayz is free and can be completed online in a few simple steps. After that, you have to verify your personal data. For this you will need to proof your home address (ie. with electricity bill), as well as the identity card must be e-mailed to ecoPayz. Once that is done, you can apply immediately for the free ecoCard. The ecoCard is a physical, prepaid credit card. It will be send to previously given address.
Alternatively, ecoPayz also offers so-called ecoVirtualcard. This is a virtual credit card that can only be used for online and payments over the phone.
No matter whether you opt for the ecoCard or the ecoVirtualcard – with both you can make deposits at online casinos. Of course you can also apply for both cards simultaneously. Rmember that first you have to transfer money to the e-wallet called ecoAccount.
Once you have loaded money on the ecoAccount, then you can either deposit directly into the casino account, or transfer money via ecoCard or ecoVirtualcard. You can rop up e-wallet by credit card (only Visa and MasterCard are accepted), Paysafecard or classic bank transfer (also SEPA is possible).
