We have some very important news regarding the Ukash payment method, so if you regularly use this method to deposit at your favourite online casino this will be vital for you to read and will affect your future deposits.
Ukash acquired by Skrill and Paysafecard
Due to a recent development, we would like to inform you that Skrill and Paysafecard have now acquired Ukash. It is their business decision to replace Ukash completely by Paysafecard, which is one of Europe’s leading prepaid payment method that offers tons of benefits. So, if you use Ukash to deposit worry not because there will still be options you can use to play at your favourite casino.
The takeover means that from 31st October 2015, Ukash will be taken off the market completely and all the online redemption will also stop.
Ukash and Paysafecard are currently sharing the similar distributors in most of the market. This means that Paysafecard will take over and players will now be able to purchase a Paysafecard voucher instead of Ukash. This means you will continue to be able to play at casinos simply by selecting the Paysafecard logo as a deposit method instead of Ukash.
However we also have to inform you that for the market that Paysafecard is not currently operating (including Turkey), Ukash will shut down.
More about Paysafecard
If you’re not already familiar with Paysafecard, you will be relieved to find out that it works in pretty much the same way as Ukash and is really easy to use.
Simply buy a voucher and choose the Paysafecard deposit method at your chosen casino. You will then be prompted to enter the 16-digit number on your voucher, very much like you done with a Ukash voucher.
With Paysafecard it’s even easier because:
- Any remaining credit remains valid and can be used later
- Multiple PINs can be combined when paying.
You can purchase a Paysafecard in numerous denominations as follows: £10, £25, £50, £75 or £100 and they are available to buy worldwide at over 500,000 sales outlets.
So, remember Ukash will only be available to use until 31st October 2015 so we advise any players who currently have valid Ukash vouchers to use them before this date or they will become obsolete.
