Credit card processing for gaming (start-ups)

Because the Gambling Commission do not regulate prize competitions and free draws and you do not need a licence to run them, we are unable to provide merchant services for start-up competition business and can only help start-up Gaming.

What is gaming?
Gambling is defined as betting or gaming. That definition distinguishes between activities which need to be licensed and other activities which do not. We categorise gambling as Betting, Bingo or Casino.

What is a competition? Unlike gaming where the outcome depends on chance, the outcome of a prize competition must depend on the exercise of skill, knowledge, or judgment by the participant. Again, we are unable to help for start-up businesses.


Via dedicated gaming acquiring partners, we offer you everything you need to accept gaming card payments and pay out winnings easily and securely. Our feature rich dedicated gaming solutions are fully flexible and have been developed to deliver value and growth to your business. Accept Visa and MasterCard credit and debit card payments easily and securely, process repeat and deferred payments, manage refunds, pay out winnings into one easy to use and customisable platform.

Please note that even though this account is ideal for start-up gaming businesses, you must have an estimated £100k per month processing volume.
