Paysafe and Playtech form global payments partnership

Paysafe, a leading specialised payments platform, has announced a new global partnership with gambling technology company Playtech.

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

Through a single, global streamlined integration with Paysafe’s API, operators in the UK and Europe will now also be able to leverage Playtech’s iGaming PAM, Information Management Solution (IMS) platform.

Operators will be able to access a range of Paysafe’s payment solutions, such as payment acquiring and card processing, with digital wallet services set to follow.

The integration helps to “maximise consumer choice by providing players with all the ways they want to pay when betting online.”

The partnership extension follows Paysafe and Playtech’s successful US integration with betPARX.

Paysafe has powered the gaming operator’s traditional and alternative payment solutions for its iGaming brand Play Gun Lake in Michigan since Q2 2021 and, from Q1 2022, for its betPARX iGaming and sportsbook app for both Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

The two companies are focused on “driving new innovations which offer the ultimate player experience and are designed to support the growth of partner businesses.”

“Playtech is an exciting global gaming brand committed to offering its operators a frictionless payments experience,” Paysafe chief executive of integrated and ecommerce solutions Paulette Rowe said.

“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.

“Bringing together our respective capabilities and deep expertise and understanding of the international iGaming, technology and payments industries represents an incredibly powerful combination, and I am looking forward to helping the Playtech team grow their business further in new European markets.”

Playtech chief operating office Shimon Akad added: “Offering our iGaming partners market-leading technologies that deliver the most seamless and engaging experience to their customers is absolutely central to our strategy at Playtech.”

“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.”
