Operators Accepting AstroPay Payments

About AstroPay

AstroPay is a virtual pre-paid card that can be used online to make payments on various websites, including UK online casinos. The reasons you might want to use a pre-paid card instead of the traditional debit or credit card vary according to one’s circumstances.  However, it is always good to have an alternative to such traditional payment methods and AstroPay is an excellent choice.

General Information

AstroPay is a UK company that operates in Latin America and that’s where it gets the majority of its customers. It provides a reliable and secure online payment method to its private and business customers.

Due to its transparency, reliability, and professionalism, AstroPay is growing fast and expanding in other emerging markets. It started as a payment provider to online merchants in Latin America and has since expanded its operations to the UK, China, Mexico, and others.

It is a preferred payment method by some players at UK online casinos because it is fast, secure and easy to use. It also supports over 130 different payment methods online or on mobile platforms. This gives players flexibility on how to load funds onto their AstroPay card.

Online Casino Payments With AstroPay

To use AstroPay to fund your online casino account, you must first register and get a card. To do so you must follow some simple steps:

Register on their website https://www.astropay.com . It is a quick and straightforward process at the end of which you will receive a confirmation email which you will need to confirm.

●       Log into your account and go to buy a card.

●       Choose the amount you wish to load onto the AstroPay card

●       Choose the payment method to fund your new AstroPay card. You can use online bank transfers, direct debits, cash deposits and other payment options that are available depending on the country you live in.

●       As soon as the payment is confirmed, you will be emailed your virtual card number. It’s just like a standard debit or credit card, a 16 digit number with an expiry date and CVV.

Once you have your AstroPay card number, it is pretty straightforward to load funds onto your online casino account:

●       Go to deposit and choose AstroPay

●       Choose how much money you wish to deposit

●       Enter your AstroPay card details

●       The payment will be processed instantly and your funds will be available straight away for you to use them.

Online Casino Withdrawals With AstroPay

AstroPay is definitely an excellent online payment method that can be used to deposit funds to your online casino account. However, it cannot be used to withdraw funds to it. One of the main reasons is that AstroPay cards are non-reloadable, so once the balance on the card has been used, the card is no longer valid.

You will, therefore, have to use a different withdrawal method offered by your selected online casino such as e-wallets.

Pros
  • Virtual cards – you don’t have to worry about misplacing your card as there is no physical card issued. All you have to do is make sure you don’t delete the email containing your AstroPay card details.
  • No hidden fees – there are no fees when using AstroPay to make deposits to your online casino account.
  • Responsible gambling – as AstroPay cards are not reloadable, once the balance is spent, the card becomes invalid. So you are less likely to overspend. For example, if you have £100 on the AstroPay card, that is the maximum that you can deposit, even if you would like to add some more.
  • Privacy – AstroPay is also used by players who do have the traditional payment methods available, such as bank accounts and debit or credit cards. The reasons may differ based on someone’s own circumstances and preferences. For example, if you are thinking to ask your bank for a loan or for a mortgage, repeated transactions to online casinos might way against you. This is one of the main reasons AstroPay is preferred over the debit cards directly connected to your personal bank account.
  • Supports multiple currencies and cryptocurrencies – you can add funds to your AstroPay card in over 10 currencies and using cryptocurrencies as well, such as bitcoin, litecoin or ethereum.
Cons
  • No withdrawals – the biggest disadvantage of AstroPay cards is that you cannot withdraw funds to them from your online casino account.
  • Country restrictions – while AstroPay is one of the fastest growing online payment provider solutions, there are still numerous countries whose restrictions prevent it from further growth.
  • Long details every transaction – not the end of the world, but every time you use AstroPay to make a deposit to your online casino account, you do have to enter the whole 16 card number, expiry date, and CVV.

Yes, you can use the same AstroPay card several times until your balance has been used completely.

These depend on the value of your AstroPay card which has a minimum deposit of £10 and a maximum of £1,000. When using the card to fund your casino account, make sure the balance falls within the casino’s own deposit limits. For example, you would not be able to make a deposit with your AstroPay card that has £20 if your selected casino has a £25 minimum deposit limit.

Yes, you still qualify for deposit-related casino promotional offers when using AstroPay. It is a legitimate and reliable banking method. Some online casinos may even have some dedicated bonuses available to encourage more players to use AstroPay.

AstroPay will not charge you any transaction fees. If you deposit £20 using AstroPay, your casino account will be credited with £20 and your AstroPay card will be debited with £20. However, you could experience a deposit fee only if your selected online casino imposes one. So do take the time to read their terms and conditions.

The AstroPay cards are valid for 1 year from their issue date.
