Sun Bingo and Fabulous Bingo, the leading UK online bingo brands owned by British tabloid newspaper The Sun, have selected SafeCharge to provide a range of online payment services.

The UK-headquartered supplier will provide the Playtech-powered bingo sites with services including a streamlined deposit and withdrawal system based on SafeCharge’s Personalised Cashier.

“We are proud of winning the business of this prestigious client and we have once again proven that with our unique capabilities we are able to deliver a comprehensive, tailor-made payments solution to Enterprise businesses,” said David Avgi, CEO of SafeCharge.

"Our firm collaboration with various gaming platforms enables SafeCharge to offer unique features and capabilities that serve to enhance players' deposit and withdrawal process."

SafeCharge said that the the Cashier service, along with the supplier’s cards acquiring facilities and proprietary fraud prevention platform, form a comprehensive payments solution that maximises player conversions and ensures operational efficiency.

"We selected SafeCharge for their proven experience in migration, platform integration and payments processing,” said Tom Ustunel, product partnership director for betting, bingo and gaming at News UK, which publishes The Sun. “SafeCharge's flexibility enabled us to make multiple updates while ensuring that all our players experienced a swift migration and access to an enhanced deposit and withdrawal solution.

"We enjoyed working with SafeCharge's highly proficient project management team and felt that all our requirements were met in record time,” he said.
