Ukash is an electronic payment method that negates the need to divulge personal and financial information to sports betting sites and thousands of non-gambling related merchants across the globe. Like paysafecard, Ukash was a voucher-based payment system.
Users bought a Ukash voucher either online or via a store, then entered the unique PIN number onto the betting site when they wanted to make a safe, quick and secure deposit.
Ukash was bought by online payments giant Skrill and was merged with its paysafecard product in October 2015 so Ukash is no longer available for customers to use, but paysafecard is essentially the same banking option.

Why Players Use Ukash as Preferred Payment Method
Until it was merged with paysafecard, players used Ukash as a preferred payment method for a variety of reasons, one such reason being they did not have to divulge their financial information to the sports betting site they were depositing on.
This was possible because Ukash customers purchased a Ukash voucher from a vendor or its online store and received a voucher with a unique PIN. This PIN was then entered in the cashier of the betting site and the value of the voucher credited to the Ukash user’s account.
Ukash users also had the ability to combine or split their Ukash vouchers, giving them greater freedom over the amounts they were depositing. This couple with no fees for the user to purchase or use a Ukash voucher made it a popular deposit method for sports bettors, particularly those from the United Kingdom and parts of Europe.
