Operators Accepting Ukash Payments

About Ukash

Online casino players often face the dilemma of looking for a safe, yet discreet, payment option which they can use to deposit money to and withdraw money from their casino accounts. After all, one does have to be a bit cautious while dealing with real money online. Luckily, however, there are several options which you can choose from.

Introducing Ukash

When looking for a suitable payment option for online casinos, you may have come across Ukash at least once. After all, Ukash (now also called Paysafecard) is a popular method used by casino players to deposit funds into their accounts. The process is quick and easy while also maintaining a screen of anonymity in terms of where the funds are coming from. Because of this, Ukash has become one of the most used deposit methods on almost all online casinos which offer the feature.

So, what is Ukash?

Ukash is an online money transfer service which is primarily used for making online payments and purchases as well as withdrawing funds to and from a single bank account to various parts of the world. It works under a UK based parent company which overseas all of its financial transactions.

You can think of Ukash as an e-wallet which allows you to make all kinds of payments including, but not limited to, withdrawing and depositing cash to all kinds of casinos, both online and IRL as well. Since its establishment in 2005, Ukash has been a go-to choose for Playtech and RG casinos who allow their users to make payments through the service. This makes it a direct competitor to the industry leader Skrill, which most casino players use for payments.

Ukash enjoys popularity in the United Kingdom primarily though there is a significant demographic of users coming from the EU, the US and also Australia.

How does it work?

Ukash uses a prepaid voucher system which can be purchased from over 400,000 points of sale globally. Basically, you would pay real money to buy a voucher of the same amount, effectively converting your cash into e-money which would be used to make the payment. Once you’ve done the payment, you’ll get a unique 19-digit code which can be used to make payments on any website which uses Ukash.

You can also Ukash vouchers online by making the payment through a debit or credit card. Just like the first option, once you’ve made your payment, you will get a 19-digit code which can be used in any website which supports Ukash. Do note that this code can be used multiple times. So, if you buy a voucher for £50 and spend only £25, then you can use the remaining money later.

Additionally, Ukash offers its users the chance to have a MasterCard which can be filled using Ukash vouchers. Through this, you can make online and offline payment as well as receive cash from ATMs all over the globe.

Depositing Money to Ukash

As we’ve just explained above, depositing money to Ukash is a fairly simple method which can be done both in person by visiting a point of sale which sells Ukash vouchers and also through the Ukash website where you make payments via a debit or credit card. It really depends on what’s convenient for you.

Also, at this point, note that you can also use select ATMs in many regions as well as other payment outlets to make your Ukash payment. In order to find the closest place to you, you can simply check through the Store Locator feature on the Ukash website which shows you the nearest point of sale or franchise.

It’s really that simple!

Withdrawing Money from Ukash

There are a few ways in which you can withdraw money from Ukash to your bank account. In order to do so, you’ll have to use one of the following products:

  • Ukash NEO
  • Cash Withdrawals
  • MasterCard Repower

Through these services, you can directly transfer cash from your Ukash voucher onto your debit or credit card. Similarly, there are various online payment systems available according to specific regions which can be used to exchange Ukash voucher sums into real cash. Again, you can find out the nearest one to you by looking at the Store Locator on Ukash’s website.

If you use the prepaid MasterCard offered by Ukash then you can withdraw your money from your Ukash account via ATM. The service doesn’t even cost anything, and it is very convenient. Additionally, you can use the MasterCard anywhere in the world, so that helps as well.

Advantages of Ukash

  • Payments are instant. You don’t need to wait a day or even a couple of hours.
  • It is safe and reliable and does not require you to provide any sensitive information about yourself.
  • It is completely anonymous, and you don’t even need to show any form of identification when buying a voucher.
  • The pre-paid MasterCard offers a range of currencies to choose from.

Disadvantages of Ukash

  • No casino withdrawals are possible using the voucher service. You have to register for an account with Ukash.
  • You cannot misplace your code or else you won’t be able to recover any vouchers.

Ukash Merge & Changes to the Service

In 2015, Ukash merged with Paysafecard, which owned by the Skrill Group. Paysafecard is very similar to Ukash so hasn’t been much change to the service. It still follows the same deposit and withdrawal plan using vouchers and e-wallets, so you don’t have to worry much. Interestingly, some online casino vendors still provide an option for Ukash. You can use your Paysafecard details here and it will work just fine.

If anything, being acquired by the Skrill Group has made Ukash even more reliable and accessible as, under the name of Paysafecard, it has gained access to a larger audience. More and more people have started to use it for not only online casino games but also for online purchases on many websites. In fact, some vendors on Ali Baba also offers payment plans through Paysafecard so it’s worth your while to begin using this e-wallet service. What’re you waiting for?
