Boku is a company which helps the people to make the deposits to play bingo games online using your phone bill. Using Boku us very easy. Charges are added to your phone bill in the same way if you made a phone call. Boku is the intermediate source between the merchant (in this case Sailor Bingo) and you, the user. It makes the corresponding charges you’ve made to deposit on your network provider, like O2, EE and Vodafone in the UK, and processes the payment to the merchant.

Boku is very similar to other e-wallet service providers like PayPal or Skrill which process payments on your behalf.

How does Boku work?

Boku makes use of direct carrier billing mechanism which is an advanced method of premium SMS (PSMS). PSMS was the widely used method for selling ringtones back in the 90’s to receive money using a text message. Though it was used in a wide range of sectors it was non-dependable, unsecure, and lacked flexibility when it comes to offering different pricing options. These disadvantages were resolved in direct carrier billing technology.

In simple terms, direct carrier billing benefits from the ease of use in PSMS and the security of credit card transactions. Therefore, it is simpler than most of the payment methods including mobile wallets and new technologies like NFC.
