Paysafe extends Playtech deal to Europe

Payments platform Paysafe has sealed a global partnership with gambling technology provider Playtech.

The agreement is the extension of an existing partnership between the two companies into the UK and Europe from the US, where Playtech offers Paysafe’s solutions to its iGaming operator customers.

“The integration helps to maximise consumer choice by providing players with all the ways they want to pay when betting online,” spokespeople for the companies said in a statement.

Through a single, global streamlined integration with Paysafe’s API, operators in the UK and Europe will be able to access a range of payment solutions, starting with payment acquiring and card processing, with digital wallet services set to follow.

“We’ve seen great success in the roll-out of our collaboration across multiple US state markets, and are delighted to be extending this into the UK and Europe via the same, single technology integration,” said Paulette Rowe, chief executive of integrated and e-commerce solutions at Paysafe.

Shimon Akad, chief operating officer at Playtech, added: “Payments plays an important role in delivering the ultimate player journey and requires an experienced team with expert knowledge, which is where Paysafe comes in as the ideal partner for us.”
