Some of you may be familiar with the Paysafecard logo that adorns the bottom of a bingo site. Or it could be that you have seen it when you have gone to the cashier but aren’t 100% sure what it actually is. There are lots of bingo sites that accept Paysafecard – so we will give you the scoop on what it means!
What is Paysafecard?
Some of you may opt for depositing on bingo sites using debit or credit cards – but there are quite a few alternative options that you can use, one of which is Paysafecard. It allows you to transfer funds without entering your credit or debit card details, which is ideal for those of you who don’t want to transmit your details online. Instead you will enter in a 16 digit PIN number from a prepaid card and make secure transactions.
How Do I Use Paysafecard?
Using Paysafecard is easy. First of all you can purchase a PIN at one of the 500,000 sales outlets that they have worldwide – or else you can do this on their online shop. You will then need to make sure that the brand is a Paysafecard bingo site (the logo will be featured at the bottom of the page) – and then when you make your deposit at the cashier it will allow you to select this as an option and enter your PIN.
Advantages of Using Paysafecard
There are many advantages to Paysafecard bingo. The main one is the fact that as long as you have your PIN handy it’s a quick and painless method of getting those funds transferred to your bingo account. Paysafecard will also make sure that any unused credit so that you don’t need to get a new voucher code issued, and if you do happen to have more than one code – you can combine them so that payments can be made using several cards.
Any Issues with Paysafecard?
Just like with anything there can be the odd term and condition to adhere to. For example on some bingo sites there is a small charge for using Paysafecard, so it’s always a good idea to read the small print before you deposit. Another thing you may need to take into account is the availability of this method. For example if you are a big fan of 15 Network, or Wheel of Slots unfortunately you won’t find this there.
Another glitch is – what happens if you win money? This method can only be used for making payments as opposed to receiving them. This could mean that you need to use another means of withdrawal or go through a verification process and send on different forms of ID. The main drawback however is that if you lose your Paysafecard voucher – there is no means of getting it back which means that the money is lost forever just like real cash.
Paysafecard and Ukash
Some of you may be thinking – this sounds pretty similar to Ukash vouchers. Paysafecard acquired Ukash at the beginning of 2015, giving consumers and merchants notice that those vouchers could only be redeemed until 31st October 2015. This means that you can now only use Paysafecard and any Ukash vouchers you may have can’t be used.
