Paysafecard Bingo Sites
Paysafecard is a voucher payment system and after taking over Ukash it is the ONLY voucher payment system that is commonly accepted at online bingo sites.
With a voucher payment system, you prepay by visiting a registered outlet (these tend to be convenience stores, newsagents and petrol stations) and buying a card. The funds from the card can then be released at a later time for use online. This is completely different to an e-wallet such as Neteller or Paypal because the funds are tied to a physical card and it is not possible to withdraw money from it, only spend it. You CAN pay from Paysafecard into the Skrill e-wallet but the fee charged is quite hefty.
Paysafecards are available in denominations of £10, £25, £50, £75 and £100 and can be ordered online as well as bought from physical outlets. This is quite flexible, as you do not need to spend all the funds on a card at once and also sums from different cards can be combined into one payment. One thing to watch out for, however, is that it is best to use all the credit on a card within 12 months of purchase as after that you will have to pay a monthly service charge.
Each card has its own 16 digit PIN and this number will need to be entered into the cashier section when using it to pay online. If the credit on the card is partially used the PIN on the remainder stays the same (this was not the case with Ukash).
Paysafecard offers a facility for managing cards online, which means that all PINs from owned cards can be held in one account and there is no need to enter PINs when paying, only username and password. There’s also a smartphone app for both iOS and Android to help you manage your cards while out and about.
- You can pay cash for the card so no need for a credit or debit card at that stage
- No details of the method used to pay for the card are stored on the card so remain completely safe from fraud
- Easy to keep track of spending
- It is not possible to run up a debt on it
- Basically cash, so if you lose the card you lose the money (the PIN is printed on the card)
- There may be a transaction fee
- Cannot be used for withdrawals – you will need to set up a credit card, debit card or bank transfer and/or possibly pay a charge for a cheque to be issued.
- You could miss out on some bonuses as they sometimes require a credit or debit card to be registered with the bingo site
- Some bingo sites including Dotty Bingo and other Microgaming bingo sites operated by Broadway Gaming apply a higher wagering requirement to deposit bonuses attached to a Paysafecard deposit (they include the deposit as well as the bonus in the calculation)
