The latter of this group, UKash, is quick to become even more popular, now that the company has announced they will be offering their services to the recently liberalized South African online gambling sector.
UKash is already accepted at the bulk of UK online casinos and is available to over 226 million European internet users at thousands of land-based locations. According to a press statement made by UKash CEO, Mark Chirnside, UKash will soon be available at hundreds of Shell gas stations throughout South Africa. To be exact, over 200 terminals will be available, accepting from 50 to 1,500 Rands vouchers.
Chirnside also referred to an increasing number of "online stores" going live this year. In other words, he was referring to the horde of online casinos that will be accepting UKash vouchers from South Africa's approximate 5 million internet users when the online gambling industry is further liberalized there.
As an alternative to using a debit or credit card online, UKash is the perfect solution. The way it works is that cash is exchanged for unique, nineteen digit vouchers via UKash terminals, which are commonly found at convenience stores, gas stations, and even post offices. These vouchers, in turn, can then be used to transfer funds at online casinos accepting UKash.
