Will VISA allow processing in legal gambling states?

Credit cards issued in the US are the least approved deposit methods for online casino accounts. Usually when a U.S credit card is used for online gambling purposes, the card is declined and blocked automatically. However, some Internet casinos manage to accept these cards without being detected. With internet gambling being now legal in Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware, players will consider using credit cards as a payment method. With this being said, VISA, the technology provider of major credit cards, informed to issuers and processors that VISA’s “Internet Gambling Stand-In Processing (STIP) Blocking Service” doesn’t guarantee the same treatment to all gambling payments.
