Paysafe, a specialised payments platform, has expanded its collaboration with Flutter Entertainment plc’s online and mobile sports betting business FOX Bet. FOX Bet has bolstered its Michigan sportsbook’s payments offering with the Skrill digital wallet and paysafecard ecash solution, building on Paysafe integrations across numerous states.
For more than a decade, Paysafe has simplified payments for Flutter Entertainment’s Betfair and PokerStars brands, and its Skrill solution is already integrated with FOX Bet’s Colorado, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania offerings.
Players in Michigan can use Skrill to deposit quickly and securely into their FOX Bet accounts to gamble on a variety of sports, including NFL football, NBA basketball, MLB baseball, and NHL hockey, as well as Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and local and international soccer games.
First integrated ecash alternative
Paysafecard is now accepted as a deposit method with FOX Bet in Michigan, making it the brand’s first integrated ecash alternative for gamers that prefer cash. The solution, which can be purchased in quantities of $10, $25, $50, and $100 at hundreds of US merchants, provides customers with a 16-digit number that can be used to make online or mobile deposits into their FOX Bet account.
Paysafe’s expanded collaboration now allows for payments in addition to deposits. Winnings can be deposited straight into Michigan players’ Skrill accounts, which can then be transferred to their bank accounts in real time. Customers can also withdraw wins as cash from an ATM using the Skrill Visa Prepaid Card.
Embracing alternative payment methods
Paysafe’s CEO, Philip McHugh, said: “We’re delighted to strengthen our partnership with FOX Bet. Americans are keenly embracing alternative payment methods, so integrating our best-in-class Skrill and paysafecard solutions, both specifically tailored to sports betting, will ensure that FOX Bet offers all the different ways that players want to pay when they play.”
