1. BestECasino.com will charge player's credit cards using the descriptor "BestECasino.com" and a contact phone number, which will appear on your credit card statement.
2. All credit card transactions are charged in US dollars.
3. All players using a credit card to deposit at BestECasino.com agree to complete any reasonable verification requirements to prove that they are the authorized cardholder.
As a verification procedure, some BestECasino.com credit card deposits may actually be charged to your card as a random amount below the actual value of your deposit. We may then ask you to provide us with this random amount (in $US) to verify the amount of the transaction, proving that you have access to the credit card statement and are most likely the authorized card owner. For example if a player submits a $100 deposit, we may actually charge the credit card $99.86, but deposit $100 to the player's BestECasino.com account. We will then ask the player exactly how much was charged to the card, and if they look at their statement they should be able to tell us the correct answer of $99.86.
4. Some credit card deposits may not be charged to your card immediately. As a fraud protection measure, in certain circumstances we will only pre-authorize a charge to your card and then the settle the transaction when we are satisfied that it is a legitimate charge.
