Paysafecard Cashes in on Ukash

Ukash, the electronic voucher system used by many players across the UK, will cease to be available from August.

As part of the company's ongoing evolution, a process which started when it was taken over by Skrill in 2013, the voucher system will now be replaced by paysafecard.

All remaining vouchers will be valid until October 31; however, after this time they will become worthless.

The reason for the change, according to paysafecard's Udo Muller, is to make both products more efficient, safer and better value for customers.

"We have brought together the best of the prepaid technologies from both Ukash and paysafecard to give consumers a safe and easy way to make online payments and we are now embarking on a nationwide campaign to ensure the retailers and users are aware of the changes taking place," said Muller.

Currently paysafecard has 480,000 outlets across Europe and it's hoped this network of options will allow it to become one of the main deposit methods for online poker players around the world.
