PaysafeCard Casino

Many of you, veteran mobile casino gamblers, will remember Ukash. Its new name is Paysafecard, which changed after the merger of the two. If you’ve been playing before 2016, you may have even used the old service of Ukash. But while Ukash is still listed as a deposit option at many casinos, it isn’t available anymore – Enter Paysafecard casinos.

In late 2015, PaysafeCard became the de facto service which functions in the same way as Ukash. As such, it allows players to deposit at casinos and make purchases at other online retailers, by buying vouchers or loading money on to a pre-paid card.

Paysafecard is an easy to use and quick way to deposit at casinos. It also caters for many players who cannot use traditional payment methods, such as bank cards or e-wallets.

If you’ve been wondering how to use Paysafecard or why you should try it, you’re in the right place. On this page, you can find out all you need to know about the depositing service including:

How Paysafecard Casinos Work

Paysafecard works a little like an e-wallet, such as PayPal or Skrill. You can use it to make payments online, without sharing your banking details.

That being said, the processes of funding a Paysafecard is completely different from e-wallet services. Instead of linking your e-wallet to your bank account, you will need to purchase vouchers to add money to your account.

With Paysafecard, you can either add the vouchers to your account (to spend at a later date) or enter the voucher codes directly into your casino of choice. Paysafecard vouchers are available to purchase at over 650,000 sales outlets worldwide. In the UK, these include supermarkets, newsagents and petrol stations, such as WH Smith, Asda and any shop which displays a PayPoint logo.

How to Deposit with Paysafecard

As we've just mentioned, when using Paysafecard you can either decide to use your vouchers immediately or save them for later. This is the difference between Paysafecard and myPaysafecard.

myPaysafecard can be used to compile several voucher codes to create one balance and to monitor your balance.

Depending on which way you want to use Paysafecard at a casino, the processing of depositing at a casino is slightly different.

Depositing with a Paysafecard Voucher

  1. Log in to your casino of choice and visit the banking page.
  2. Select ‘Paysafecard' as your payment method, and select the amount you wish to deposit.
  3. Enter the 16-digit pin code which can be found on your Paysafecard voucher
  4. The payment will be made instantly and your funds should be in your casino account.
  5. If there is money left over on your voucher, you can use this at a later date.

Depositing with myPaysafecard

  1. Log in to your casino of choice and visit the banking page.
  2. Select ‘Paysafecard' as your payment method, and select the amount you wish to deposit.
  3. Login to myPaysafecard with your account details and confirm the transaction
  4. Your funds will be available in your casino account immediately.

PaysafeCard Deposit Limits

One unusual thing about PaysafeCard is that it sells the codes in fixed values. A single 16-digit code may be worth £10, £25, £50 or £100.

Luckily, this doesn’t mean that £100 is the max deposit using Paysafecard. While this is true at some casinos, other sites allow for more flexibility. You can also use myPaysafecard to create a balance of several different codes.

Usually, however, the method does have depositing limits from £10 to £300. These may be higher at certain casinos, yet

It has to be said though, that other e-wallets usually allow for higher limits. So t’s usual to find PaysafeCard deposit limits from £10 to £300. Limits over £300 are possible too, but not available everywhere.

This means that Paysafecard may not be the perfect method for all types of players. It is, however, a good option for those who:

  • Don’t spend a lot
  • Like to deposit often and in small amounts

The Advantages of Paysafecard Casinos

Paysafecard is a unique depositing option and therefore, it offers many benefits over other payment services. These include:

Safety and Security

With Paysafecard, you never need to share your banking details with anyone (be that the casino or the payment service itself). This makes the method incredibly secure and means that it's perfect for those who are concerned about internet fraud and data collection.

Quick and Easy

As you can see from the step-by-step guides above, these types of deposits are incredibly quick to make. As you needn't spend time entering long bank details, nor do you necessarily have to sign up to use the method, Paysafecard saves you time and energy – which can be spent playing your favourite casino games instead.

Caters for the Unbanked

One of the biggest benefits of using Paysafecard over other depositing methods is that you don't need a bank account or debit card to make a deposit. Many online gamers find it very difficult to play online, without any bank details. Paysafecard, in contrast, allows you to pay for vouchers with cash in stores, and so it can be used by those who don't have (or have access to) bank accounts.

Helps You Manage Your Bankroll

Using this method takes a little forward thinking. As you will need to go out to purchase the vouchers, you need to know how much you're planning to spend at the casino. This can also help you budget, as if you run out of cash, you'll need to carefully consider whether or not you intend to go out and purchase more vouchers.
