Paysafe expands BetWildwood partnership with Skrill USA digital wallet upgrade
Feb 17, 2022
Colorado online sportsbook enhances payment offering with Paysafe’s revamped Skrill USA digital wallet that facilitates iGaming
Houston, Texas – Paysafe (NYSE: PSFE), a leading specialized payments platform, today announced its expanded partnership with BetWildwood, the official online sportsbook of Wildwood Casino in Colorado. BetWildwood has integrated Paysafe’s new Skrill USA digital wallet, upgrading its existing Skrill wallet to streamline depositing and payouts for its players as well as support broader customer acquisition and retention.
BetWildwood, which is powered by turnkey race and sportsbook software provider ISI Race & Sports (ISI Ltd.), first plugged into Paysafe in early 2021 via a single streamlined integration providing access to a full suite of traditional and alternative payment methods, including Skrill USA. The popularity of Skrill USA with Colorado sports bettors when wagering at BetWildwood’s iOS and Android apps and website led the sportsbook to integrate the enhanced digital wallet, which was first unveiled in Q4 2021 and features an all-new intuitive user experience (UX) and faster deposits and payouts.
Now, when a BetWildwood player with a Skrill USA account wants to bet on a Denver Broncos or Colorado Rockies game, or other national and international sports events, it takes just seconds for them to log-in, fund their player account and start wagering.
Once registered, players can fund a BetWildwood wager direct from their bank account via instant online bank transfer. Registration allows players’ bank accounts to be securely linked to their Skrill accounts for instant deposits, with funds fully guaranteed to gaming operators by Skrill.
BetWildwood sports bettors can also load funds into their Skrill USA account using a credit or debit card. Paysafe’s eCash solutions paysafecard or Paysafecash, which are available at in-store retailers across the Centennial State and the wider U.S., are also supported.
Players can access their winnings using Skrill USA, with payouts from BetWildwood available in their digital wallet account in real time. Winnings can be withdrawn at ATMs using the Skrill Visa® Prepaid Card1, with Skrill USA users also able to use the card to pay for purchases online and in-store. Alternatively, payouts can be transferred to Skrill USA users’ linked bank accounts.
Zak Cutler, CEO of North America iGaming at Paysafe, said: “The launch of the new Skrill USA digital wallet in the fall was a major milestone for us as well as a significant step forward for American alternative payments for iGaming. We’re excited to expand our partnership with BetWildwood as we both evolve our offerings to make depositing and payouts quicker and easier for players.”
Bill Stearns, President at ISI Ltd., commented: “We’re delighted to expand our Paysafe payments partnership. Our integration of the new, upgraded Skrill USA digital wallet is part of our vision of providing BetWildwood players with cutting-edge payment solutions that suit their personal preferences.”
