UK – SafeCharge launches PokerStars MasterCardBy Phil - 23 April 2015
SafeCharge has launched a PokerStars-branded prepaid MasterCard that allows poker players in the UK to withdraw and deposit direct to their bank account.
The prepaid StarsCard was initially made available to all players in the UK on April 16 2015 and will roll out into further international markets in the future.
The StarsCard provides a free and well-protected web and mobile account for PokerStars players that can be funded by vouchers (available at retail stores), bank transfer or a debit card. StarsCard is integrated to PokerStars and can be used to deposit and cashout directly to and from a player’s PokerStars account.
StarsCard allows PokerStars customers to have a single point of deposit that combines all the convenience of existing options but with additional features for cashing out, spending and sending money to friends and family. StarsCard can be used anywhere MasterCard is accepted.
StarsCard is managed by SafeCharge Card Services, the Dublin-based issuing and programme management division of SafeCharge. SafeCharge Card Services has previously developed and managed wallet and card solutions for clients such as Telefónica, Orange and Visa Europe.
