Betable partners Worldpay to enhance payment processing services11th October 2013 6:00 am GMT
Payment processing solutions provider Worldpay has signed a contract with Betable to integrate a number of its services onto the company’s real-money gaming platform.
Worldpay will supply the UK-licensed company with its payment processing, fraud detention and risk management serves, which will be incorporated into Betable’s development platform and player wallet, giving players a safer and faster way to deposit, with a range of popular payment methods now available.
Shane Happach, chief commercial officer at Worldpay, said that Betable was “the only platform that provides game developers with the unprecedented opportunity to offer real-money play within their own games,” making it a unique opportunity for his company.
“Powering Betable’s services with WorldPay’s payment processing functionality assures developers that when their users opt to play their games for real-money their transaction success will be maximised,” Happach added.
Since launching last year with a platform that allows social developers to incorporate real-money gaming into free-to-play products, Betable has signed up a number of customers, although only two have so far gone live.
Big Fish Games and Digital Chocolate are the two partners to launch real-money games, with a number of the supplier’s other clients yet to do so, while Slingo has ended its partnership with the company without launching any products.
“The value of having WorldPay’s services integrated into our platform and player-facing Betable Wallet is enormous,” Betable’s chief revenue officer Ryan Linton explained. “Our partners can rest assured that we are giving them the tools they need to deliver the best possible real-money gaming experience to their players.”
