Why can I use my card to fund my Daily Fantasy account, but not my Sportsbook or Casino accounts?

In select instances a credit, debit or gift card used to fund a DFS account may not be authorized to deposit into a Sportsbook or Casino account because card issuers may consider a Sportsbook deposit as a different type of transaction. If you are experiencing problems depositing with your card, we recommend that you use another payment method that has a higher rate of deposit approval such as online banking, Play +, VIP Prefered e-check, or PayPal.
