Baden Casino To Use SafeCharge For Gaming Platforms

For its Gamanza powered gaming platform, Swiss operator Grand Casino Baden has partnered with SafeCharge, a Nuvei company, to process credit card payments.

SafeCharge offers Visa and Mastercard acquisition services issued by Swiss banks and also connects to more than 180 methods of payment including Post Finance, Swiss Post’s financial services unit.

Grand Casino Baden notes that the agreement gives it “the ability to better address the needs of a growing audience of online gamers,” with SafeCharge promising to demonstrate its ability to meet the needs of the growing online market in Switzerland.

Yuval Ziv, MD of SafeCharge and head of global acquiring stated: “We are delighted to be working with the team at Grand Casino Baden to provide payments for its rapidly growing igaming operation.

“This partnership marked our entrance into the Swiss online gaming market, and we are excited at the prospect of our payments technology platform better servicing the region’s customers.

“As demonstrated by our long-standing collaborations with multiple tier 1 gaming operators, our solution is the ideal choice for institutions who require navigating the regulatory complexities of local markets without compromising user experience.”

Earlier this year, the Eidgenössische Spielbankenkommission, the Federal Gaming Commission of Switzerland, regulated the online gambling market in the country and subsequently enabled the online operation of the country’s land-based casinos.

The company will benefit from a frictionless payment experience for its online customers through SafeCharge Cashier, offering smooth deposits and withdrawals and compliance with anti-money laundering laws.

“We knew that we had to partner with a technology player with the highest credentials and the ability to support our business within an extremely complex market, outside of EU legislations,” said Marcel Tobler, chief financial officer at Grand Casino Baden.

“SafeCharge has been our preferred choice thanks to its proven track-record in the industry and unrivalled experience in fraud prevention and AML.”
