Where Can You Buy Ukash Vouchers?
Ukash is a payment method with loads of advantages, eliminating the need to ever enter card details again when making purchases online. In fact, it is many players’ payment method of choice, thanks to its zero risk of fraud, untraceability, and the ability to allow those without a bank account to still enjoy mobile poker.
One problem that pops up frequently though is how to get hold of Ukash vouchers – they aren’t advertised massively and often the only sign of a shop selling them is a small icon in the window (if that). So, here’s a brief guide on how to get your mitts on some Ukash vouchers, which can then be spent at the majority of good mobile poker sites…
Many shops offer Payzone as a way to pay a multitude of different things, from bills to buying tickets for transport. They have hundreds, if not thousands, of terminals throughout the country, and are the most popular way to buy Ukash vouchers. Simply walk into one of the stores and ask for your voucher, which come in values from £15 up to £200. It really is that simple!

The other massive retailer of Ukash vouchers is PayPoint, who are also found in stores ranging from small newsagents through to larger retail outlets. The big advantage they have over Payzone is that you can buy Ukash vouchers for as little as £5 here, which is £10 less than Payzone – perfect for those looking to just have a quick, low-stakes game. You should be aware though that Ukash voucher bought from PayPoint terminals can be age-restricted – meaning that they can’t be spent on gambling – so check you have the right voucher before leaving the shop.

EPay is a similar idea to both Payzone and PayPoint, however they are much less widespread. We would recommend using one of the above options before them, simply due to the fact that they don’t allow purchases higher than £100, and they also have a minimum spend of £10. Of course, if EPay is your only option, you’ll still find them to be perfectly acceptable and you’ll have no problems redeeming any Ukash voucher bought from them.
EPay does not have a locator tool, so you’ll just have to look out for the signs in shop windows!
A bastion of the high street, WHSmith now offers Ukash to all customers – hopefully they are the first of many large retailors to realise that this is a great product to sell in-store. There’s not much more to say about them really, aside from the fact you can buy vouchers up to the value of £200 from them, and that they are one of the most trusted names in the world of retail.
This is the only method you can use to top of your Ukash account online, however the whole process pretty much negates the purpose of using Ukash in the first place. To get your money, you pay using a credit or debit card, which then tops up the card. Surely, however, if you want to use a credit or debit card online, you could just head to your favourite mobile poker site and make the payment directly there? In our opinion, beCharge is pretty pointless for mobile poker players and therefore you are best avoiding it.
