MerchantScout is specialized in processing payments for high-risk merchants in sectors including online gambling and gaming. Online gambling is a special category not accepted by many banks due to the high risk of fraud, and the historical frequency of chargebacks. Our main focus is on licensed EU/UK-based merchants, but we also serve international businesses through our worldwide acquiring network of banks which accept online gambling merchants.

Gambling license requirements

When we place merchants with our primary acquiring banks in western Europe, the contracting merchant must be EU-based and have an EU-issued gaming/gambling license. Licenses are also accepted from territories including Gibraltar, Malta, Alderney, the Isle of Man and Curacao. Gambling merchant accounts are categorized as 7995 (MCC code), by which the payment processors identify the transaction and restrict certain countries.

Prohibited countries

If a payment is attempted in any of the following countries, the transaction is automatically blocked due to domestic online gambling laws: Brazil, China, Hungary, Hong Kong, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Singapore, South Korea, Switzerland, Turkey and the USA.
