PaySafeCard Offers Unique Promotion

Paysafecard is one of the more popular the methods of funding online casinos. This is because paysafecard is not funded through bank accounts or credit cards. It is a prepaid voucher that can be bought from local shops. In order to further extend its reach paysafecard has offered a unique promotion in conjunction with the popular online poker room Mansion Poker. This offer has been sent to all subscribers of the paysafecard newsletter.

In the offer paysafecard has mailed the pin code and serial number of a voucher that can be used to make a deposit at Mansion Poker. The voucher is valued at £10 and is valid till the end of November. Though this voucher is free it is not a simple freebie. The player has to purchase another paysafecard voucher of at least £10 and enter the pin numbers of both vouchers when making a deposit at Mansion Poker.

Actually this offer does not merely double the player’s bankroll. It increases it five fold if the player is a first time depositor at Mansion Poker. This is because Mansion Poker has upped the deposit bonus from 100% to 150% for players using this offer from paysafecard. Hence a player buying a £10 voucher from paysafecard can deposit £20 at Mansion Poker using the £10 free voucher. And the player can convert the £20 deposit to £50 using the bonus from Mansion Poker. Hence with an outlay of only £10 the player can have a bankroll of £50.

Paysafecard is available from 20,000 local shops in the United Kingdom and from over 230,000 outlets in more than 20 countries worldwide. Players in the United Kingdom can locate their nearest paysafecard outlet by feeding in their postal pin code number at the paysafecard website. Players from other countries need to fill in their complete postal address in order to locate the nearest outlet. Paysafecard offers some useful features. It allows for currency conversion and therefore can be used to fund online casinos in currencies other than the currency of the voucher. Hence the voucher can be purchased in British pounds and the online casino can be funded in US dollars of the equivalent amount. Additional safety precaution can be built into the paysafecard voucher by providing a secret password at the time of purchase. Then while funding the online casino the player will have to enter the password in order to get access to the funds. This can prevent misuse of the voucher in case it falls into wrong hands.

Paysafecard issues a newsletter. Online casino players are advised to subscribe to this newsletter. Several promotional offers are made only to subscribers of the newsletter. These include free paysafecard vouchers, free entry into competitions and prize draws and free bonuses and discounts from online casinos that accept paysafecard as a payment option.

I've never used this payment method but I would figure that it would be rather inconvenient to have to go out and buy pre-paid cards. I suppose that they must let you purchase the Paysafecards themselves online and perhaps even reload them online as well.
