Ontario Lottery and Gaming Selects Optimal Payments
After a rigorous and comprehensive procurement process, Optimal Payments Plc. proudly announced their five-year agreement to provide their payment service NETBANX to the online gaming service of Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG), PlayOLG.ca today.Optimal Payments is a global online payments provider and this deal means that they will be providing their payment services to the regulated online gaming payments on PlayOLG.
The NETBANX payment system will be embedded into this website for the next 5 years providing players with a variety of payment options as well as real-time fraud, mitigation and risk management services.
It seems obvious why Optimal Payments was selected by OLG since they are already used by most of the major regulated gaming operators in Europe. They provide a selection of payment services through a single platform including fraud and risk management, reporting and data management as well as regulatory-compliant account funding and disbursements.
Optimal Payments also recently expanded their reach into North America providing their services to the likes of Espacejeux which is Quebec government’s online gambling arm as well as Caesars Interactive Entertainment.
Optimal Payments also recently announced an agreement with Bally Interactive and they will be providing their clients in the U.S. with risk and payment services.
