Online payment specialist Ukash continued its quest to make online shopping available to everybody, anywhere in the world, this week with a significant global deal with ePay, a division of Euronet Worldwide, Inc. – a provider of payment services and technology – to make its online cash vouchers available in Italy for the first time.
The expansion of Ukash into Italy will initially see Ukash vouchers available at 1 250 ePay locations across the country, before extending to thousands more over the rest of the year. The deal offers all internet users in Italy the opportunity to pay, play and shop online using cash without having to pay for a prepaid card.
Internet shopping in Italy turned over Euros 4 868 billion in 2007 and continues to grow, reports Ukash. The partnership with ePay allows online merchants to tap into the growing customer base of consumers who prefer to use cash as a safer way to complete transactions online.
Using Ukash, consumers simply exchange their cash for a unique 19-digit code to use online. This provides them with a secure payment system where they don’t need to reveal any financial information, enabling those without access to credit or debit cards – or those with fears of online fraud – to do business online.
Mark Chirnside, CEO of Ukash, commented on the deal, saying: “Italy is a key growth market for Ukash, where ecommerce is on the up and consumers are becoming savvy about the safer ways to pay online. We are pleased to be able to extend the availability of our product to Italian consumers, providing them with a free, one-time use, e-cash solution that opens online shopping up to everybody. By partnering with epay we are able to reach a broader scope of potential new customers and expand our global footprint.”
“This deal also opens the virtual door for many online retailers as they can now offer alternative payment methods and attract the cash consumer, as well as eliminate any risk of online fraud.”
Giuseppe Di Marco, Country Manager, ePay Italia said: “ePay is pleased to be able to partner with Ukash in Italy, thereby combining the strengths of both businesses to offer consumers more convenient locations to obtain Ukash vouchers. Utilising our Italian cash collection network, we can deliver a value-added service to Ukash customers, further extending our payment service and technology offering.”
Flowing from the deal, Ukash vouchers will be available at 1 250 physical point of sale terminals operated by ePay at independent supermarkets, petrol stations, call shops, drug stores and convenience stores in Italy. The vouchers will be available in Euro10, 20, 50 and 100 and can be combined, split and/or converted.
Ukash is undergoing a period of rapid global growth and in the last few months has expanded its offer in Germany, Poland, Australia and Spain with ePay.

The one thing I do no is that the €40 bonus was meant for active depositing players and the GFF50 bonus for inactive depositing players. It might be that the 40 bonus was sent to you in error, thus the agent offered you the correct 50 free offer. However I require your casino username so that I may investigate further.

" Oh, you hear the stories about how dangerous Ouija boards are, but hey—it’s just a game. Mary waited until midnight to begin our little game, and the four of us—Sarah, Jessie, me, and, Mary, started by asking all kinds of silly questions. It was a strange-looking board, covered with letters and symbols. There was a plastic pointer that was supposed to move across the board at the behest of the spirits. The instructions called it a planchette. Around one thirty in the morning, the planchette suddenly froze in Mary’s hand. It wouldn’t move, no matter how much we pushed and pulled. Mary turned her frightened blue eyes toward me. “I’m not doing it,” she said, lifting her hands. I grabbed the planchette myself and tried to push it around, but it was fixed to the board. Suddenly, a kind of electric shock buzzed through my fingers. I gasped and tried to pull my fingers from the planchette, but they were stuck. Mary and Jessie both tried to pull my fingers away, nothing helped. The other girls stared with wide, round eyes, as the planchette came alive under my fingers—which were still fixed to its surface—and began to move. “Help.” The words spelled out under my hand. “Help me. Help me.” The planchette kept moving back and forth between the h – e – l – p continuously, until Sarah cried out: “Who are you?” “Amber.” The board spelled. “My name is Amber. I am eight years old.” “What’s wrong?” Mary asked. Her face was so white all the freckles stood out like darkened age spots. “Water. Danger. Help. Scared.” The words spelled out as fast as my hand could move. “Call 9-1-1,” Mary cried suddenly. “Quick. Amber is in danger.” By this time, Sarah was gasping into the phone. Then she hung up the phone. “They wouldn’t listen to me,” she told us, almost in tears. At that instant, my hand was suddenly free from the planchette. “She’s gone,” I gasped, “See if you can contact her again,” Mary said urgently. “We need to know if she’s okay!” I picked up the plastic planchette again. “Amber, are you there?” I asked softly, afraid of what might happen. After a long pause, it moved slowly across the board and spelled out the words: “Too late.” And after another long pause. “Water. Flood. Drowned. Mobile. Alabama.” The planchette stopped.I knew that Amber was gone. None of us got much sleep that night. In the morning, we rushed through breakfast and then looked up the Alabama news on the Internet. None of us were surprised to read that there had been flash floods the night before. I read the names of those who had died in the flood. One of the victims was an eight-year-old girl named Amber. _____________________ My favorite casino is winaday..my username is : aymenpronet."READ
