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 your myPaysafe account to top up your balance. You can then use your myPaysafe balance to add funds to your betting account. The process works similar to a prepaid credit card that you would buy at the convenience store, but there’s the additional step up adding the funds to your myPaysafe account before transferring the funds to your sportsbook account.
Paysafecard purchased Ukash in 2015, which was a favourite deposit method for online sportsbooks among Canadians. Paysafecard works the exact same way as Ukash did, 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 a great alternative for either of these issues.

As you can see there’s a ton of retailers where you can quickly purchase a voucher.
You can also purchase vouchers directly from the paysafecard website after registering your account.
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 myPaysafe account, and then 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 Interac, cheque or bank wire.
Because you haven’t provided any validated information about yourself the sportsbook may make you jump through a couple hoops before processing your withdrawal. You will likely 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).
