The paysafecard has been a popular Deposit option in German-speaking online casinos for many years. This is an electronic means of payment where customers purchase a credit card in advance and receive a 16-digit PIN in return. This is then entered in the Online Casino or in online stores, so that a deposit is completed within a few seconds. The corresponding credit cards can be purchased, for example, in supermarkets at Edeka or Aldi, at gas stations or at kiosks for various amounts (e.g. 10, 25, 50 or 100 euros). For several years now, paysafecard has been part of the Paysafe Group, just like Skrill and Neteller.
In the meantime, it is also possible for customers to set up a "mypaysafecard" account. After the registration has been completed, customers can conveniently make payments here just with the username and the corresponding password. There are basically no fees for the use of a paysafecard. However, it is the case that the purchased credit cards are usually only valid for twelve months. Paysafecard is so popular as a payment method in the online Casino mainly because no sensitive bank or credit card data must be transmitted and because the processing is fast and convenient. Furthermore, a payment by Paysafecard is considered safe.
The origins of the paysafecard can be traced back to the year 2000 in Austria. Armin Sageder, Michael Müller, Reinhard Eilmsteiner and Michael Altrichter founded the paysafecard Wertkarten AG in Vienna. Currently, the paysafecard is offered in 46 countries around the world.
