Paysafecard - Makes Deposits and Withdrawals to Online Casinos Easy
Paysafecard is a brand of prepaid card owned and operated by the Paysafe Group out of Vienna, Austria. An international leader in online prepaid payment solutions, the Paysafe Group services millions of customers from 43 countries around the world.
Paysafecard is only one of several online payment solutions that include Paysafecard MasterCard and other white label products. With a continually growing network of supporting online merchants and expanding user base, Paysafecard is becoming one of the most popular methods for depositing and withdrawing funds in the online casino industry.
How Does Paysafecard Work?
Each Paysafecard is associated with a personal payments account. Accounts can be topped up via assigned Paysafecard PINs, and users have access to a complete account overview at all times.
Paysafecards–which can be purchased at sales outlets –come with a 16-digit PIN. This number is added to your Paysafecard account. Transactions can then be performed simply by providing your Paysafecard PIN. Unlike other payment systems, no other personal or banking information is required, so the transaction is totally secure.
Paysafecard also offers a Paysafecard MasterCard, which can be used with any online establishment that accepts MasterCard.

Funding Your Paysafecard Account / Making A Transfer to A Casino Account
Each Paysafecard has an assigned value, which means that you don’t have to prefund your Paysafecard account before making a deposit into an online casino account. However, you do have to make sure that you have enough funds in the form of Paysafecards to cover any planned deposits.
You can use as many Paysafecards as you wish in order to cover the full amount of the deposit. However, you do not have to use the full value of an entire card. If you have a total of £50 divided up among four cards, for example, you can deposit only £40 and still have £10 left over for future deposits or purchases.
Here's how to deposit Paysafecard funds into an online casino account:
- Go to the casino’s “deposits” page.
- Specify the amount you wish to deposit.
- Select “Paysafecard” as the deposit method.
- Enter your 16-digit Paysafecard PIN.
- Confirm the transaction.
Paysafecard imposes maximum limits on the amount that you can payout. Keep in mind that these limits only apply to the Paysafecard system. Online casinos may have their own limits with regard to the minimum and maximum amounts that you may deposit via Paysafecard.

Making a Withdrawal From Paysafecard
Although you can make a deposit via a prepaid Paysafecard, withdrawing your funds via the Paysafecard system will require a Paysafecard account. Please refer to the “How to create a Paysafecard account” section above.
- Go to the casino’s “cash out” page.
- Select “Paysafecard” as the withdrawal option.
- Specify the amount you wish to withdraw.
- Provide your 16-digit Paysafecard account PIN.
- Confirm the transaction.
There are some things to keep in mind when withdrawing via Paysafecard. Most casinos will only allow you to winnings and bonuses via Paysafecard if your most recent deposit was made via a Paysafecard account or a prepaid Paysafecard.
Most casinos also impose a minimum limit of £10 and maximum limit of £2000 for Paysafecard withdrawals. However, some casinos may allow you to make more than one withdrawal consecutively.
Withdrawals via Paysafecard typically take 24 hours to process.
