William Hill introduces Paysafecard
August 26, 2009
The popular betting chain William Hill has introduced Paysafecard as a purchase method for its burgeoning online gambling sites. William Hill are rapidly becoming a force to be reckoned with since its move and integration with Playtech and now offers this electronic form of payment at its online casino and online bingo site. It seems that UK casino players require additional levels of security when it comes to purchasing at online gaming products and the introduction of the Paysafe card by William Hill is a good thing.
Paysafecard is an electronic wallet that allows you to do your online shopping and online gambling at venues that accept Paysafecard. Although the internet provides users with a lot of choice there are still a lot of people who do not want to provide their credit card details online and William Hill have realized this and have acted.
Paysafecard offers protection by ensuring that only the balance on the account can be used and casino and bingo players can load up the card with a specific amount instead of having a credit limit that can be abused. Paysafecard is currently available in 9 countries and is widely used by gamblers in Europe. Paysafecard is also licensed and regulated by the Financial Services authority in the United Kingdom.
One of the reasons for the integration of the card by William Hill is probably down to the ease with which a Paysafecard can be loaded up with funds, players can load the card up at any Paypoint and most newsagents, petrol stations, chemists and kiosks will be able to give a card and upload funds to it.
