Ukash, the leading Global eMoney network and specialists in prepaid payment solutions for the gaming sector has announced that players across Argentina can now deposit and play or bet using their cash online with Ukash.
Ukash had been available in Buenos Aires since February 2011: now its presence has been extended to the entire country because of a partnership with More in Argentina, made possible via its LATAM partners Raberil Trading S.A. The entire network has now gone live, bringing over 100 nationwide outlets where players can get Ukash in Argentina.
Ukash enables players worldwide to use their cash to pay online, irrespective of status, device or boundary, and is available at 420,000 retail locations. Globally, Ukash is active in more than 55 countries.
David Hunter, Chief Executive of www.Ukash.com, said: “Our research indicated that Ukash is perfect for the Argentinean market. For example, over 60% of the population access the internet regularly, with rates of internet access and e-commerce also growing.”
“Furthermore, bank account penetration in Argentina is relatively low, with cash transactions accounting for 42% of all purchases, compared to just 4.6% card transactions – as an alternative cash payments business, we were very interested to discover this.
“For all these reasons, we knew the opportunity to play online using cash would be well received, and that Ukash could provide a safe, secure and convenient solution for many player’s across Argentina.”
In order to shop, pay and play online with Ukash, customers will be required to give their full name, ID number and address the first time they visit More stores.
Once this registration process is completed, customers can simply confirm their name and address verbally in order to purchase Ukash vouchers. Customers will be able to locate their nearest Ukash outlet via the website: http://www.ukash.com/latin-america/es/home.aspx
