Payments provider OKTO has made the highest possible profile entry into the UK casino market, by announcing a partnership with the world-famous London Hippodrome Casino.

Hippodrome visitors will be able to pay responsibly for their entertainment with the OKTO.WALLET payment method, available in the Hippodrome Casino Members mobile app.

Simon Dorsen, OKTO’s Chief Commercial Officer, believes partnering with such a respected and high profile gaming and entertainment brand is a powerful endorsement of OKTO’s capabilities and features, stating: “The Hippodrome was the first to interpret changes in legislation bringing about a new style of UK casino that has put the venue firmly on the world map. Now the established cornerstone of London’s West End life introduces OKTO to its visitors, being always in the front line of digitalisation.”

Under the terms of our agreement the OKTO.WALLET will be embedded within the Hippodrome Casino mobile app, providing customers with enhanced payment experiences and capabilities. The proprietary platform meets all the niche demands of gaming customers, allowing users to transfer funds responsibly and enjoy real-time payments.

George Constantinou Head of Online at Hippodrome Casino adds: “Since opening nearly a decade ago, the Hippodrome has become the UK’s largest and most popular casino and entertainment venue and has set new standards in everything that it has done. This includes digital payments and the first casino membership app that includes a customer wallet.

“The OKTO.WALLET delivers safe and secure transactions embedded into our members’ mobile app. At the same time it embraces safer gambling, a philosophy close to the heart of the Hippodrome business. The OKTO App features responsible gambling tools including secure KYC and age verification. These features are vitally important to progressive brands like the Hippodrome. We are pleased to be working with the team at OKTO and look forward to building a strong relationship going forward.”
