UKash are a UK based company and have been operating since 2005. In that time the company have grown around the gambling industry and have slowly started to integrate itself as a payment option for thousands of online gamblers. UKash will admit that the gambling sector wasn’t that high up on their priorities when establishing the company, but the needs of bettors within the industry has been a perfect match for someone like UKash.
They work a little different than a lot of e-wallets out there. You are actually required to go and purchase a 19-digit code, which will work as a pre-paid card. This code then allows you deposit very similarly to that of a debit card. It’s probably worth pointing out that thee are two cards on offer from UKash, one with an age restriction of 18+ and the other accommodating minors of under 18. It probably doesn’t take a genius to work out that for gambling transactions you will need to have the 18+ card.
The UKash system means that you can be completely anonymous when making any purchases with these types of card. The pre-paid cards can be gained from going to any store that sells them (post office etc.) and paying via cash or card for you 19-digit code. Once you’ve attained this code you can either link to your online account or simply use it completely anonymously to deposit via any online casino that accepts UKash.
By registering online it means you can increase the features that are available to you from UKash. Probably their biggest feature is that you can apply for a MasterCard that is linked to your UKash account to withdraw money from ATM’s and also pay for products in-store that accept MasterCard Transactions.
There aren’t all that many negatives really when it comes to UKash. It’s a product that is going to be used by people who don’t want to have any traces to their banking details online at all. You will have to go to a store and physically purchase your UKash card, which is a burden in our eyes, but then there’s not really any other way around it. If you aren’t someone who wants complete anonymity when it comes to banking then there are probably going to be better e-wallet alternatives out there than UKash if we are being completely honest.
How To Use UKash At An Online Casino
There are a number of ways in which you can fund your account using UKash. The following step-by-step guide will show you how to use each way to deposit to an online casino of your choice.
The first thing you need to do is actually pick up your 19-digit UKash code. There are three ways in which you can do this. The first, and probably most popular, is going down to a PayPoint, PayZone or ePay store and buying your code. For this you can use either cash or card and it will be done in a matter of minutes.
The second option is linking your UKash account to your bank where you can simply transfer money to your UKash account. This will be done instantly and from there a code will either be emailed to you or sent via SMS.
Finally you can get a pre-paid MasterCard with UKash, meaning you can use this as you would any MasterCard within the casinos payment section.
Once you’ve obtained your 19-digit number then it’s simply a case of entering this code and the amount that you wish to deposit on your online casino.
UKash have been around since 2005 and in that time have become one of the most popular pre-paid companies in the gambling industry. They are regulated by the UK’s Financial conduct Authority. In 2014 the company expanded again to offer up pre-paid cards for travellers heading outside of the UK. It works in much the same way as topping your betting account, but this time it’s your pre-paid MasterCard.
