Why use Paysafecard?
There a number of reasons why one might opt for using
Paysafcard for online betting. Aside from the safety advantages over regular
debit/credit card payments, one particular advantage of using Paysafecards to
deposit gambling funds, is that because you are only able to use at partner
sites and because the card has to be loaded with cash, one is less likely to
spend more than intended when gambling. Thus to some degree, minimising the
risk, as you can only lose what cash has been loaded onto your
Paysafecard. A further advantage is;
because it legal for you to allow someone else to use your 16-digit pin, Paysafecards
make an excellent gift for someone who enjoys online betting.
Security From a security point of view, you might be thinking: how
can I be sure it’s secure and that my details are safe? Paysafecard, ensure
their users that security online is constantly monitored and regularly
upgraded. The beauty of the Paysafecard though, is that the 16-digit pin you
are given, relates only to your cash account. At no point are any credit/debit
card or bank details ever revealed, meaning there is zero chance of your
private financial information falling into the wrong hands. This being said, it
is still important for users to exercise caution when using Paysafecards.
pin safe is always advised, because although gaining
access to the 16 digit pin wouldn’t enable anyone to identify your card/bank
details, it would of course enable them to use whatever money is loaded onto
the Paysafecard. Likewise, at no point should you be coerced into adding funds
through a website claiming to be Paysafecard, money is only legitimately loaded
through authorised sales outlets, where payments take place only in cash. From
time to time there will always be websites masking themselves as Paysafecard in
order to obtain your card/bank details. These are of course online scams and
cooperation with such rogue sites, should always be avoided[CC1].
