Reasons of a declined deposit
It is definitely unpleasant when your deposit request is rejected. It may include different reasons, for example, wrong information of your card, the termination of its validity term, inadequate account balance or even blocked card.
If you faced one of these problems, you should take the appropriate actions. If you entered wrong information, сross-check your card data and have another attempt.
Don't forget to check the validity term of your card. Also, you should check the card balance, as the lack of funds won’t give you opportunity to make deposit. If your card is blocked and you can’t make online gaming transactions, you need to contact your bank and find out if such transactions are allowed.
Those, who are interested in alternative types of depositing, can enter the "Cashier" to see the other options.
