Ukash is a revolutionary payment system which enables those unable or unwilling to use a credit card, bank account or e-wallet to make online purchases to do so using cash. The idea is simple: you go to a Ukash-supported shop, purchase a Ukash voucher, and use the code from that voucher to make online purchases.
In the case of online casinos, not only can it be used to make deposits in your casino account, many only casinos offer you the chance to make online withdrawals as well. If you order a Ukash Out Mastercard, you can even withdraw the funds as cash.
Ukash is supported by most leading casinos, including 32 Red Casino.
Ukash offers its customers the following advantages:
Here’s how Ukash works:
Ukash is largely free to use. Ukash itself will not charge for purchasing or redeeming a voucher, provided the transactions occur in the same currency.
However, when using Ukash, the following may apply:
Depositing funds in your 32 Red Casino account via Ukash is incredibly simple. Indeed, you don’t even need a Ukash account to do it.
To deposit funds in your Ukash account:
Withdrawing funds via Ukash functions in much the same way as purchasing a voucher. When you request the withdrawal, you receive a voucher at the end.
Please note that this voucher can only be spent online at retailers that support Ukash. If you wish to withdraw it as cash, you will first need to withdraw it as a voucher, then apply for a Ukash prepaid credit card.
To withdraw funds:
Please note that the voucher won’t be issued immediately. Should you change your mind, you have a period in which you can reverse the transaction and have the funds restored to your casino balance. To do this:
The great advantage of Ukash is that unlike other payment methods, you don’t need to register for an account to send or receive funds via a voucher. But if you wish to redeem your vouchers as cash, or use the funds with retailers that don’t support Ukash directly, you’ll need a Ukash prepaid Mastercard.
In both cases, you will need to register for an account:
Once you have set up an account, you can then apply for either type of card:
Ukash Out cards are physical Mastercards, sent to your address and linked to your account. Because they are physical, they can be used at ATMs or in physical shops.
Ukash NEO cards are virtual credit cards. Instead of being sent a card, you will be given a credit card number, CVC number and expiry date. This enables you to make credit card purchases online. However, because it is not a physical card, it can’t be used offline.
Both types of card have costs associated with them, as described in the table below.
Ukash prepaid Mastercard costs:
|Action||Ukash Out physical card||Ukash NEO virtual card|
|Purchase price||£10.00/€12.00/$15.00||Varies depending on country and amount|
|Cash withdrawal flat fee||£2.00/€2.50/$3.00||N/A|
|Cash withdrawal currency conversion||2%||N/A|
|Administration fee per month||£3.00/€4.00/$5.00||N/A|
|Dormant account fee per month||1st year: £10.00/€4.00/$5.00
2nd year: £15/€17.50/$20.00
Note: Ukash is also accepted as a funding method by e-wallets as well as online casinos. So if you have an existing pre-paid Mastercard linked to an e-wallet account, it may be cheaper to use a Ukash voucher to fund that, instead of applying for a Ukash card.
Although Ukash is largely redundant for anyone willing and able to use a credit card, bank account or e-wallet to fund their casino account, it’s a great alternative for those that don’t. As long as you have a store that stocks Ukash accounts nearby, you can buy a voucher using cash, deposit it in your casino account quickly and securely.
