Paysafecards are a popular method of funding online betting accounts as they have a number of benefits. In this guide, we’ll be taking a look at what a Paysafecard is and which bookies accept Paysafecard for the purpose of funding accounts.
Paysafecard is owned by the Paysafe Group which also owns the popular online E-wallets Skrill and Neteller. A Paysafecard is a pre-paid card which means that you can only spend up to the amount you have deposited onto it. Some people prefer using a Paysafecard over other deposit methods such as debit cards, credit cards or E-wallets as they have some advantages such as:
As Paysafecard has become more popular, a number of top online bookmakers now accept it. Below are our recommended bookies to use Paysafecard with.
Using a Paysafecard means that you can bet online using cash. You simply need to purchase a PIN for a set amount at a store which provides them. No personal details such as name, bank details or address are exchanged when purchasing PINs leading them to be a safe a secure way to fund your betting accounts.
In order to use Paysafecard at a betting site or any other website, you need to purchase a PIN. These can be purchased at any outlet which displays the ‘PayPoint’ logo (see below). The most common outlets are newsagents and post offices. You’ll find a list of retailers near you by visiting the PaySafe website.
In an outlet, you can purchase a PIN for the value of £10, £25, £50, £75 or £100. You simply hand over your cash and the retailer will print you an e-voucher which contains a 16-digit pin.
You can then log into your betting account, enter the amount you would like to deposit and enter your 16-digit pin number. Your funds will then be deposited into your bookie account and be available to bet with.
If you wish to purchase multiple PINs at once to save you a trip to the shops each time you wish to top up, you may wish to register for a Paysafecard account online. This will allow you to store up to £5000 in prepaid vouchers and access the associated PINs at any time.
There is also the option to get a Paysafecard Mastercard if you wish. This allows you to spend the funds on your Paysafecard at places which do not accept Paysafecard but do accept Mastercard.
The majority of bookmakers do not allow you to make withdrawals to your Paysafecard. However, there are a handful which do and we have listed these in the table above. If a bookmaker does not support Paysafecard withdrawals, you can simply withdraw via another registered method such as bank card or an e-Wallet such as PayPal, Neteller or Skrill.
One bookmaker which does allow Paysafecard withdrawals is Ladbrokes which aims to process withdrawals in 6 hours+

Be aware that you will not be eligible to claim all betting offers at bookmakers when depositing using Paysafecard. This is especially true with welcome offers but also applies to some existing customer offers. However, there are some bookmakers which allow you to claim welcome offers when using a Paysafecard so always read the terms of the offer prior to registering and making a deposit.
Paysafecard provides a safe and secure way to make deposits to your bookmaker accounts. The main advantages are that you are not required to enter any personal information when depositing and that you can only spend up to the amount on your Paysafecard.
