PokerStars bolsters European services with Paysafe

16 July 2019

The Stars Group has agreed a deal to roll out Paysafe Group’s Rapid Transfer payment solution with its PokerStars flagship poker brand in 10 European countries.

Registered customers will now be able to use Rapid Transfer to make deposits using their online banking details.

Rapid Transfer enables users to make online payments instantly from their bank account, without having to leave an operator or merchant’s website. Customers also receive instant confirmation of their payment.

PokerStars has not yet released the full roster of countries where Rapid Transfer will be available to its customers, but iGamingBusiness.com understands that both the UK and Spain are on the list.

PokerStars already allows customers to make transactions using other Paysafe digital payment solutions including Skrill, NETELLER and paysafecard.

Lorenzo Pellegrino, chief executive of Skrill, NETELLER and Income Access at Paysafe, said: “PokerStars’ position as a market leader is reflected across everything they do. We are delighted to be supporting them to ensure this quality service for players spans across the deposit methods they offer, via Rapid Transfer in addition to Skrill, NETELLER and paysafecard.”
