Paysafe has announced it is live and providing its payments services to operators in the Canadian province of Ontario following the launch of its igaming market.
The payments platform has extended its multi-state US payment partnerships with several operators into the Ontarian market, including PointsBet and theScore Bet.
Paysafe’s new deals with private operators build upon its pre-existing partnerships with government-operated lotteries in the Canadian province, having processed online payments for the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG)’s online gaming since 2015.
Zak Cutler, CEO of North America iGaming at Paysafe, commented: “Today’s launch of the new, expanded Ontarian igaming market marks a milestone for the North American industry and our global company, which has its origins in Canada.
“Ontario will likely rival the largest US state igaming jurisdictions when it reaches maturity, and we look forward to facilitating payments for operators and their Ontarian customers to help the market grow to its full potential.”
Through a single, streamlined integration with Paysafe, players in Ontario can now make deposits with online sports betting and casino brands by credit and debit card, with all transactions processed by the platform’s payment gateway. Alternative payment methods may also be available, including Paysafe’s eCash solutions.
In addition, the payments platform noted that it will be announcing new igaming payments products and operator partnerships in the coming weeks for the Ontarian market.
