Nuvei signs deal with esports operator Unikrn

By Peter Lynch

Payment technology company Nuvei Corporation has announced a partnership with esports betting operator Unikrn.

Through the agreement, Unikrn will use Cashier - Nuvei’s hosted payment page - to process customer transactions.

Cashier handles high volumes of international payments, and is integrated with over 100 global currencies.

Founded in 2014, Unikrn is currently active in 24 countries, and 41 states across the US. It focuses on esports, as well as sports betting and casino games.

“Unikrn offers our global customer base access to an unrivalled spectrum of gaming experiences without interruption,” said Rahul Sood, co-founder of Unikrn. “Nuvei was the best option for us to ensure we meet these expectations and offer a platform that will scale with our rapid growth. 

“Cashier makes our customers’ payment journey safe and seamless. We look forward to working with Nuvei for many years to come.”

Yuval Ziv, managing director of digital payments at Nuvei, added: “This new partnership with Unikrn is in line with our vision of an expanding ecosystem of partners that benefits operators and customers alike.”

Nuvei broadened its presence in the US earlier this month, receiving approval from the West Virginia Lottery Commission to process sports betting and online gaming payments in the state.
