Ukash Bingo Sites

Ukash was a voucher payment system (as opposed to e-wallets such as Skrill, Neteller and Paypal) which offered players a completely secure payment method for making deposits online without needing to have a credit or debit card (or even a bank account, but good luck trying to withdraw without one!) , and it was widely accepted at online bingo sites.  

The process of depositing with Ukash began with a visit to a Ukash outlet, where cash would be handed over in return for a prepaid Ukash voucher bearing a 19 digit code.  This would then be entered into the cashier section of the bingo site.  It was possible to receive change from a Ukash voucher in the form of a different 19 digit code.

Ukash was not without its disadvantages, however.  Firstly there was the general issue that if you lost the voucher or code, you lost the money - just like losing a £20 note.  Secondly there was an issue specific to bingo sites and online casinos, which was what would happen if you wanted to cash your winnings out; as Ukash is only for paying money, not receiving it, withdrawals had to be made by other means and this could involve first having to make a deposit via the other means for verification purposes, or supplying several different forms of ID in order to be paid by cheque (and many sites made a charge for a cheque).  

Ukash and Paysafecard

In early 2015 Ukash was acquired by rival voucher payment system Paysafecard with the result that the Ukash system was to be phased out.  Ukash vouchers would be available to buy until 31st August 2015 and able to be be redeemed up until 31st October 2015.

Paysafecard is very similar to Ukash, the main differences being as follows:

  • The PIN code is 16 digits
  • The Paysafecard stores any unused credit using the original PIN rather than a new voucher code having to be issued
  • Multiple PINs can be combined when paying, making it easy to use up small amounts of remaining credit on several cards

Being a voucher payment system, Paysafecard has largely the same advantages and disadvantages as Ukash, including the issue of what happens when you want to make a withdrawal.  Some bingo sites make a charge for sending a cheque if you originally deposited via a voucher system; Cozy bingo sites seem to be the worst offenders here with a £5 charge but other sites could do the same thing so do check the terms and conditions BEFORE depositing using Paysafecard to find out what will happen if you want to withdraw your winnings.
