One of the leading electronic payment service providers, Moneybookers has released another option for online casino players to facilitate financial transactions. Today prepaid cards are becoming an increasingly popular form of banking online, so Moneybookers have come out with their own card called the Moneybookers Mastercard. The card will allow Moneybookers customers from around the world to access funds in their Moneybookers e-Wallet accounts or at about 1,000,000 ATMs and retail outlets displaying the Mastercard logo.

The new prepaid Mastercard card is being issued by the United Kingdom based company - Newcastle Card Solutions Limited (NCS). NCS is the 3rd largest Mastercard network in the world and the number one in Europe. Head of NCS Kriya Patel had announced the following on the release:

"The Moneybookers eWallet offers a whole new dimension in terms of convenience and this new card brings together for customers the benefits of a sophisticated online payment platform with access to their money offline, wherever they are, whenever they choose."

The cards will offer a new feature to customers that will not force them to split their funds to load the card. The card will balance in real time with the funds in the user's Moneybookers eWallet account. Moneybookers is the first eWallet provider to offer this service. The card can be used for lots of everyday applications besides online casinos and gambling sites, both online and off-line.

Moneybookers is well known for offering some of the lowest transaction fees in the eWallet business. Again, new card customers pay an annual set-up fee of just €10, a withdrawal fee of €1.80, and the transaction fee is 1.99%. Besides Euros, other currencies that the Moneybookers Mastercard is available in include US Dollars, British Pounds, and Polish Zlotys.

Today's online casino and poker players are looking for more freedom than the traditional online banking options have provided. Players want to be able to access their funds quickly and anywhere, and Moneybookers CEO Martin Ott thinks that their company is now providing that to customers:

"We're very pleased to be launching the next step in online payments. We recently signed up our ten millionth account holder; as this sector grows our customers are increasingly looking to exploit the time and safety benefits of the eWallet in the real world."

Moneybookers was founded in 2001 and is regulated by the Financial Services Authority of the United Kingdom. Since its inception it has seen phenomenal growth and has processed over €15 billion in online transactions. Over 12,000 new Moneybookers accounts are opened every day. London-based online banking solution provider Moneybookers has a great future because the alternative payment sector will comprise 30% of all online transactions by 2012. This is because online customers are seeking convenient alternatives to the banking system for day to day transactions. Martin Ott, co-CEO of Moneybookers, added, "We recently signed up our ten millionth account holder; as this sector grows our customers are increasingly looking to exploit the time and safety benefits of the eWallet in the real world."

Moneybookers is probably the most popular online payment solution in online gaming industry today. They outperformed the former leader - Neteller, and rapidly grow their customer base because of the small fees, speedy transactions, great customer support in multiple languages and strong reputation.
