Play Poker for Real Money Using Ukash


What is Ukash?

Ukash is a leading prepaid internet payment product. You can use Ukash to make swift and trouble-free payments via the internet without divulging a credit card number or personal account details.

Ukash is easy:

  1. Buy a Ukash voucher
  2. Select Ukash as the "payment option"
  3. Type in your voucher reference and voucher value – done!

You can obtain Ukash vouchers from thousands of physical locations and via online bank transfer in several countries. Please visit the Ukash site to locate a sales outlet.

How can I make purchases at PokerStars using Ukash?

Ukash will be discontinued soon and vouchers can no longer be purchased in most regions. This deposit option will remain available in the PokerStars Cashier until October 23, 2015 – please deposit with your unused vouchers by this date.

Ukash is fully integrated via the PokerStars cashier screen. When you click on "Cashier" and then on "Deposit", you will see an option to use Ukash. Click on the Ukash button and you will be presented with a deposit screen.  You will be asked for the voucher reference and voucher value.  Once you have completed this information click 'Submit' and wait for your deposit to be approved.

Please note you can only use the full voucher value to deposit.  If you would like to combine or split your vouchers then please visit
