There is no doubt that we are all leading increasingly busier lives. In fact, some days it can feel as if there are not enough hours in the day to finish all we set out to do. Anything convenient that makes our lives a little bit easier is welcomed.
Often, we turn to the internet out of convenience and now rely on the it for many everyday things. We browse, shop, and then pay for goods and services online, we book movie and concert tickets, we monitor our health, and many of us occasionally enjoy a bet or wager online too.
But just like any other medium, the internet is open to those who are not altogether honest or have criminal intent—those who are attempting to steal our personal and financial details. More and more, identity fraud is a great concern for many.
Staying Safe While Paying for Goods and Services Online
Luckily, there are many things we can do in order to stay safe online that are well documented, but remaining safe online is also dependent on the sites we frequent.
One of the industries that takes their customers’ safety very seriously is the gambling industry. Many online gambling sites have gone to great lengths to ensure their players’ safety.
Paying in Complete Confidence
There are a variety of ways to pay for either goods or services online, and many of them are tried and tested, but some of them require you to give out your banking details – something that many of us are unsure about.
Fast becoming one of the most popular ways to pay for goods and services, including funding an online casino account, is BOKU – primarily because you do not have to give the site any banking details, which adds that extra layer of security.
BOKU is a US-based company that processes mobile payments, which means you can now fund your casino account using your mobile phone bill. There is no need to give any supplier your personal details, card information, or anything that would prove useful to a potential hacker
BOKU is easy to use (here’s a guide for Boku). You simply follow the steps below.
- Log in and then navigate to the payment/banking/cashier page
- Choose the ‘Pay by Phone’ option
- Verify your phone number
- You will be sent a confirmation by SMS
- Once you make a deposit, you can add up to £30 daily
- Wait for another text message and hit ‘Y’ for yes to confirm
- If you happen to make a mistake, then hit ‘N’
It only takes a minute for your money to reach your account. The cost of your games will be deducted from your pay-as-you-go account or added onto your monthly phone bill. It’s really that simple! What’s more—it’s safe and secure and that’s something we all want.
