If you are into online casinos, and spinning reels on video slots or maybe playing at live dealers tables, you have probably heard of Neosurf. The vivid pink logo at the bottom of your favorite casino has certainly caught your attention, but what is Neosurf, and more importantly, what are the advantages of playing at a Neosurf casino?
To help us solve this brand-new mystery, we reached out to Gilfred Helmonsen (read his bio here), a man behind one of the most relevant gaming sites in Norway. His vast experience as a gamer, and editor-in-chief of a website dedicated to online gaming, makes him the perfect source of information on the topic of Neosurf.
“Neosurf is simple, safe, and discreet. No wonder so many gamers love it. There are no bank statements involved, and everything is done much faster than when using a credit card”, he mentions only a couple of reasons why gamers fall in love with this alternative payment method.
So, what is Neosurf? Is it a debit card? An e-wallet? Or something completely different. We dare to say it is the latter, as Neosurf works both as an e-wallet and a voucher. Thanks to its dual nature, customers can choose the version they like the best.
E-wallet will require you to make a simple registration, and you don’t even have to deliver any documents if you don’t want to. However, a verified account will bring you higher depositing and spending limits. The main purpose of this account is not to make direct transactions, but to use it for the purchase of online Neosurf vouchers. And while e-wallets are a little less discreet, vouchers guarantee complete anonymity. Anyone can purchase a voucher with physical vendors scattered all over the world. Alternatively, there is also a growing list of online merchants, authorized for selling Neosurf coupons.
“This entire ordeal might be perplexing at first, but once you get used to it, you’ll never look back. It will feel like a walk in the park”, says Helmonsen and states this payment method was created with certain groups in mind: “It is a gift from heaven for gamblers, online gamers, and shopaholics! The level of control you get over your finances is incredibly high, I would even say much higher than with traditional payment methods.”
Some customers never cease to wonder whether this payment type is safe enough. Accepted and recognized in the worldwide market, it is as safe as any other payment method. The company encourages safe online practices and safety protocols, but ultimately, everything is pretty much on you.
“If you boast with how much cash you just loaded, what is the company supposed to do? It can’t protect you from yourself! Act responsibly, and treat your Neosurf account as cash. You don’t go around flashing a full wallet to strangers, do you”, wonders Helmonsen and adds every account is protected with a PIN code only you should know.
While you are handling your transactions online, the entire process will be encrypted with SSL protocols. SSL-security protocols are special algorithms that wrap all the information you exchange with a protective layer of computer code. To put it simply, even if someone tried to steal your data during transactions, it would be impossible as it would look just like any other generic piece of code.
Neosurf is definitely getting bigger. This fintech company already sponsors many teams in the world of esports, so even though it is not exactly as recognizable as credit cards, it is undoubtedly on the verge of hitting the mainstream.
