Paysafe has become the latest tech firm to enter the Ohio sports betting market, bringing its payments processing platform into the Buckeye State.
The payment tech provider can now provide a ‘comprehensive suite of payment options’ to players including credit card, debit card, and its own Skrill digital wallet amongst other solutions.
As a result of its expansion, Paysafe has extended its partnerships with sportsbooks operating in Ohio including Betfred Sportsbook, Betway, Hard Rock Sportsbook and SuperBook Sports.
Furthermore, Paysafe will make separate integrations of its payments gateway into Betfred, DraftKings, Hard Rock and PointsBet’s apps, offering secure deposit via debit or credit card for users of those apps.
Finally, Betway customers in Ohio can use the Skrill digital wallet to make deposits and withdrawals through its own separate agreement for Ohio.
Zak Cutler, President of Global Gaming at Paysafe, said: “We’re delighted to begin the year by extending our US igaming payments footprint into Ohio, which ranks as the most important American sports-betting market to launch since New York a year ago.
“Through our best-in-class payments platform and our Skrill wallet, we look forward to supporting the growth of our operator partners in Ohio.”
Entering Ohio marks Paysafe’s 25th live US jurisdiction that it provides igaming and/or sports betting operators with payment technology.
It is also the company’s first market entry of 2023 after making its Maryland debut in November when its own online sports betting market went live.
