This partnership will see Paysafe’s Skrill USA digital wallet integrated with the BetSaracen sportsbook app, facilitating users’ deposits and withdrawals.

More importantly, Arkansas has become the 22nd US jurisdiction where Paysafe boasts an iGaming payments footprint, building on prior agreements for other North American markets.

The Quapaw Nation, meanwhile, is based in neighbouring Oklahoma and operates two gaming facilities in the state, plus a third in Pine Bluff, Arkansas: Saracen Casino Resort.

Carlton Saffa, Chief Market Officer at Saracen Casino Resort and BetSaracen, said: “When partnering with Paysafe, we were impressed by the ease of use of the company’s payment solutions and Skrill USA in particular.

“With Skrill USA, we know we’re offering Arkansans a best-in-class digital wallet that facilitates and enhances the wagering experience with the BetSaracen mobile sportsbook app.”

Paysafe’s Skrill USA digital wallet, which underwent a revamp last autumn, allows players to link their bank accounts and deposit funds to an iGaming platform, such as BetSaracen, via an instant bank transfer.

Alternatively, customers can fund their Skrill USA wallets by entering debit or credit card details, or using Paysafe’s “Paysafecash” solution.

Beyond Skrill, the partnership with BetSaracen will allow it to access Paysafe’s full suite of traditional and alternative payment methods going forward.

“We’re proud to expand into the Arkansas iGaming market with an established local operator that has strong brand recognition in the state and in neighbouring Oklahoma, where the Quapaw Nation are based,” said Zak Cutler, Paysafe’s CEO of North America iGaming.

“We’re confident that BetSaracen’s players will find our Skrill USA digital wallet a game-changing payment solution for sports wagering.”
