The benefits for gaming companies, meanwhile, include a reduction in costs in terms of cheque payouts and bank transfer fees, as well as access to a new revenue stream.

Gaming companies are marketing heavily into Europe at the moment and we therefore expect substantial interest from the industry in this product, as it is the first MasterCard approved prepaid card programme."
