By offering its customers a range of payment alternatives, such as credit card and debit card deposits, and Paysafe's Skrill digital wallet for both deposits and payments, Paysafe is enabling play safely for a variety of sportsbooks in the Midwestern state.
According to PlayOhio, the sports betting market in Ohio is expected to generate $900m in gross annual gaming revenue once mature.
Currently, Paysafe provides payment assistance for iGaming businesses in 25 different American states or jurisdictions. Along with other current partners, Paysafe has expanded its longstanding payment arrangements with DraftKings and PointsBet.
Additionally, Betway, PointsBet and SuperBookTM Sports can offer other payment options from third-party suppliers to their Ohio consumers, thanks to their access to the Paysafe payments platform.
Zak Cutler, President of Global Gaming at Paysafe, said: “We’re delighted to begin the year by extending our US iGaming payments footprint into Ohio, which ranks as the most important American sports-betting market to launch since New York a year ago.
“Through our payments platform and our Skrill wallet, we look forward to supporting the growth of our operator partners in Ohio.”
Meanwhile, in September 2022, Paysafe partnered with sports betting operator ClutchBet in Iowa. This allows customers to use Paysafe’s upgraded Skrill USA digital wallet, alongside the provider’s Paysafecash eCash solution.
Customers of ClutchBet will also have access to Skrill USA and be given the option of joining the VIP player programme for Skrill USA.
