Betting Sites That Use Ukash
As Ukash is no longer available, no online sports betting sites accept it. However, as Ukash is now paysafecard, you should be pleased that paysafecard is widely accepted in the online betting world.
Sports betting sites such as bet365, SportsBetting, bwin, accept paysafecard to make deposits onto their sites, with the majority of European-based betting sites also accepting this banking option.
Ukash used to be a UK-based electronic money system that allowed customers to swap their cash for a secure voucher to make payments to online merchants. The Ukash system was in place until April 2014 when it was acquired by online payments giant Skrill for an undisclosed fee.
Skrill had previously bought paysafecard and decided to cease the Ukash brand, merging it with paysafecard instead. As of 31st October 2015, all Ukash vouchers expired.
How To Deposit With Ukash
There are two options available when it comes to purchasing a paysafecard, which you can use in place of Ukash. You can either head to the paysafecard website, selection “Buy paysafecard,” then select “Online Shop,” where you’re greeted with five different denominations ranging from €5 to €100 in your respective currency.
Once you have purchased a paysafecard with the value needed, you receive a 16-digit PIN which you need to keep safe. Next, head to the sports betting site you want to use, select the paysafecard deposit option where you'll be redirected to a portal to enter the 16-digit PIN. A few moments later and the funds from the paysafecar are transferred to your betting site.
Option two is to find a store near you that sells paysafecards. There are thousands of such outlets around the world so finding one local to you should be painless. When you find a paysafecard selling store, exchange cash up to €100 (or your equivalent currency) and you receive a physical slip of paper with a 16-digit PIN on it. Just like if you have bought online, enter this 16-digit PIN when prompted to do so by the online sportsbook and the funds become available to wager with in a few second.
