Players on the world's biggest online poker site, PokerStars.com, now have an additional and convenient vehicle with which to make deposits following an agreement signed with the rapidly expanding Ukash group.
The Ukash network enables persons who use the Internet to buy vouchers from an ever-expanding range of shops, converting these anonymously and safely to online cash with participating websites like PokerStars.
With rising consumer sensitivity around anonymity and sharing personal financial information on poker and other gaming and entertainment sites, the Ukash e-cash solution will open online gaming to millions of digitally excluded customers without credit or debit cards, as well as those who simply prefer to use cash, said Ukash CEO Mark Chirnside.
There is no reason to play poker anywhere else, the most tournaments, the top ring games, biggest prizes and most players. In addition we will give you $50 free on signup. Visit Pokerstars to play.
"E-cash is the global way forward for online entertainment and commerce. It is the only guaranteed way for online players to make payments on poker sites completely anonymously and securely, without ever having to worry about fraud," he added.
The expanding activities of Ukash now cover the UK, mainland Europe, South Africa and Australia, offering a network of 275 000 issuing points.
