Hello!
When applying for an undergraduate you choose a firm offer and reserve via UCAS, however, when applying for a MSc through the uni's websites directly you get the offers on email and accept through email or their website.

The universities have deadlines for when I have to reply and they are giving me conditional offers. I can only accept one offer though, right? Or how does it work, because it would be awkward to accept one conditional offer and then not meet the requirements leaving me without a spot anywhere, or accept a lower condition and then meet the higher one but not be able to take it anymore.

I've moved this to the Postgraduate Applications forum

AFAIK, you can accept as many as you like*. But an expert will be along to correct/confirm soon

*Some charge a non-refundable deposit though...

Yes, if you accept it you often have to pay a deposit within a month or so. If you then change your mind, bye bye monies... However, the deposit is usually requested only after the accepted offer has become unconditional so you can accept and then decline multiple offers until then, without any significant problem.

Oh okay, so after I'd send my final transcript?

Supposing that your transcript/classification is the only condition left, then I'd say yes.
