PaySafeCard is a great option for players who either do not want to or cannot use their credit card or bank information online. With paysafecard you simply purchase a voucher from one of the many paysafecard outlets across Canada and enter the voucher information in order to make your deposit. In this way it works very similar to a prepaid credit card that you would buy at the convenience store.
Paysafecard recently purchased Ukash, which was a favourite deposit method for online sportsbooks among Canadians. Luckily, paysafecard works the exact same way as Ukash, so there’s really no downside, with paysafecard being a great alternative to the popular credit card deposits.
Canadian credit cards will sometimes not work at online sportsbooks and many people like to keep their bank information private. Paysafecard is the perfect alternative for either of these issues.

Deposit Using Your Paysafecard Voucher
Your paysafecard voucher will including the following information that you will have to enter to deposit the funds from your paysafecard into your sports betting account:
- 16 digit paysafecard voucher pin code.
- Voucher value (deposit amount).
If you entered the information correctly your deposit will go through right away and your funds will be available to use.
When you deposit using a paysafecard voucher you will have to withdraw via cheque or bank wire.
Because you haven’t provided any validated information about yourself the sportsbook must make you jump through a couple hoops before processing your withdrawal. You will have to confirm your identity by emailing the sportsbook both a picture of your government issued ID (drivers license) and a proof of address (credit card statement, hydro bill, etc).
