MONTREAL and NEW YORK, April 21, 2015 /CNW/ - Optimal Payments (LSE AIM: OPAY), a leading global online payment solutions provider, was named the Best Payments Company at last night's EGR North America Awards ceremony in San Francisco.

The inaugural EGR North America Awards are designed to celebrate excellence in the North American online gaming industry and reward leading operators and service providers who have shown outstanding performance and innovation over the past 12 months. Voted for and judged by industry members, these awards are truly representative of who is the best for this industry from merchants and service providers to operators and their partners.
