Boku – Pay by Phone Bill
Boku is one of the easiest to use mobile payment platforms and works with any internet browser including Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari. Although there’s a small transaction fee, if you deposit £10 with Boku you get £8.50 to play with at Red Spins mobile casino.
When paying with this method there is no need to input any bank details or even set up an account – just enter your mobile number. All deposits are either added to your monthly phone bill or taken out of your credit should you have a pay-as-you-go arrangement in place.
Boku is available on most mobile networks including EE, O2, Vodafone, and Three. Its platform utilises direct carrier billing technology which ensures the payment is secure while allowing for ‘one-click’ payments.
Pay by mobile casino is simple – you don’t need a bank account to use the Boku payment method – you just pay by phone bill. Following a payment, you will get a receipt via text message from your mobile provider. It is the quickest and most convenient way of depositing at our mobile casino.
Winnings can be withdrawn by bank transfer or via an alternative payment option. Unfortunately, the Boku mobile payment platform is not able to accept withdrawals back to the mobile network. Instead, withdrawals can be made through PaySafeCard, debit or credit card and bank transfer. Our support team is always available to help and will do their best to answer any questions you may have. We are always happy to hear from our players.

Advantages of using Boku
Are you still unsure about Boku’s pay by mobile system? Then here’s a recap on the numerous advantages of using this ground-breaking pay by phone platform.
One of the most obvious benefits of using Boku is the speed in which transactions can be performed. Long processing times are a distant memory with the entire procedure taking a matter of seconds.
No Need to Provide Banking/Personal Information
Security is also stronger for the simple fact that there’s absolutely no need to provide personal or financial details. So there’s no way that hackers will be able to steal your information. This cannot be said of traditional payment methods such as VISA and Mastercard, which require users to submit their details.
We should add that these services are perfectly safe to use because they use rock solid encryption to protect the online transmission of data. However, for complete peace of mind Boku is probably the best way to go.
No Need for a Bank Account
There’s also no need for a bank account – a particular advantage if you’re looking to keep your gambling transactions private. As already stated, all that’s needed is a UK mobile number and a smartphone – you’ll then be able to try your hand at our many pay by mobile slots and casino games.
Ideal for Mobile Casino Gaming
Boku’s pay by phone bill functionality is especially useful for punters who like to play mobile casino games – the entire process can be performed on the same device without the need to fill in any complicated forms.
Things to Keep in Mind When Using the Boku Pay by Mobile Platform
While we’re huge fans of Boku, there are a few things to keep in mind when using this payment platform.
£30 Daily Limit
Boku limits daily deposits to £30 – a bit of a drag for high-rollers, but not much of a problem for players with small-to-medium-sized budgets.
The reason Boku imposes this limit is simple – because deposits are charged to your monthly phone bill, they are in effect short term loans. So Boku, as well as the mobile phone networks that it partners with, try to ensure that customers don’t rack up enormous bills that they may have trouble paying back at a later date.
It’s worth pointing out that having such restrictions in place isn’t necessarily a bad thing. After all, things can sometimes get a bit out of hand when it comes to online casino gaming, especially if you hit a rough patch. So having a limit in place can help to protect your gambling budget for another day and also ensure that you gamble more responsibly.
No Withdrawal Facility
Boku also doesn’t offer a withdrawal facility. Again, this by no means spells disaster because there are plenty of workarounds. See the ‘withdrawals’ paragraph, further up the page for information on getting around this particular issue.
Additional Payment Methods
We also include standard payment options that you can use to deposit at Red Spins mobile casino – the more choice the better as far as we’re concerned. So in addition to Boku, you can pay by debit/credit card or via online transaction services such as Neteller, Paysafecard, Skrill and Trustly. Here’s a little background information on each of these companies.
Neteller – Neteller is an online transaction specialist that’s been around since 1999. It’s made a big name for itself since then, especially in the online casino sector and offers a safe and secure method for transferring money online. Payments can be made by mobile, tablet and of course desktop.
Paysafe Card –Paysafe is a payment system offering secure online transactions through pre-paid vouchers. Upgraded in 2015, customers are now able to request that operators send funds directly to their Paysafe Card. This works particularly well with the Boku casino payment platform.
Skrill – Skrill is a digital wallet that allows for two-way transfers to and from bank accounts and credit/debit cards. As with the other payment services offered by Red Spins, gamers can pay mobile, smart devices and desktop computers safe in the knowledge that their details are safe and secure.
Trustly – Trustly is a relative newcomer, having been launched in 2008. Like Skrill, players can instantly transfer money to and from their bank accounts or debit cards.
VISA – As one of the most trusted payment services, VISA doesn’t really need that much of an introduction. While it sometimes lacks in terms of processing speed, it offers a safe method for making deposits.
Maestro – Owned by Mastercard, Maestro is a trusted debit card service that allows users to either link their card to a personal bank account or use a pre-paid option.
Mastercard – Like VISA, Mastercard is a renowned service that’s available throughout the word and offers secure online transactions.
Zimpler – Zimpler is a casino mobile payment service/e-wallet platform that’s aimed specifically at online casino gamers. Offering secure and fast online transactions, customers can also store additional payment methods via its wallet interface.
All of these payment options can be used with Red Spins and can be accessed via our ‘manage my payments’ section. Scroll down for more information about the development of one-click pay by mobile platforms.
Advent of the Pay by Mobile Option
Mobile casino gaming is now more popular than traditional desktop-based play. In 2018 an estimated 150 million people gambled on a mobile of one form or another. This has all been made possible by flexible, responsive online platforms that allow for flawless gaming, regardless of screen size. But it’s not just in the areas of web and game development that major innovations have been made. Payment methods have also undergone big changes in the past ten years or so.
Traditional Online Casino Payment Methods
Debit and credit cards are the most well-known online payment methods, offering a safe method of depositing funds. However, they’re not perfect. Slow processing times are just some of the gripes that players have with these systems.
To overcome this problem, new companies started to emerge in the early to mid 2000s which simplified and sped up the entire payment process by offering either instant or same day transactions. These included the likes of Neteller, Skrill and Trustly. Then came ‘pay by phone’ platforms such as Boku.
The Introduction of Boku Casino Payments
Boku, which was originally known as Vidicom Ltd, was founded in 2003 by Glyn Smith. It was a small but relatively successful venture that truly found its feet after securing funding from Silicon Valley venture capitalists, Khosla Ventures and Index Ventures.
In 2009 the company was renamed Boku and launched in the US. It became an instant hit with casino gamers and was the first to offer pay by phone functionality.
This meant that customers didn’t have to divulge financial information but could instead make instant payments out of their phone bills. Unsurprisingly, it went down a storm with casino gamers too which in turn resulted in more and more operators becoming pay by phone casinos by including the Boku platform on their websites.
Today, there are more than 200 operators that offer Boku as a mobile payment option. As testament to the ingenuity of its system, numerous imitations have emerged since, offering the same pay by phone functionality. However, Boku remains the most trusted and popular pay by phone bill option by some distance.
